OpenEye/BMS system is a rebuilt integration platform for
automation and protections building systems. It enables to manage with
air-condition, ventilation, heating and lighting systems and others and
also to monitor security responsible maintenance systems within the
All supervised resources can be integrated and presented within common
maps giving a complete and unified insight to the operators to the
building operation conditions.
- building use comfort increase,
- user's security increase,
- costs savings and media usage optimization,
- all systems central control.
Thanks to modern Java technology appliance, solution characterize
with rebuild reconfiguration easiness, that is important within
extensive and often changing intelligent building's environment.
Simultaneously both central system part, like consoles, can operate
within each system platform, giving operators' possibility of remote
building management from each place. Possibility of particular system
components operation increase its reliability and enable to reduce
resources unattainable time.
MEDIATION WITH RESOURCES
OpenEye/BMS system integrates devices and automation systems that
communicate in standard EIB, LON, Profibus, Ethernet, and also
anti-burglary systems, access control systems, fire warning systems. In
case of more demanding environments it is also possible integration of
not typical protection and supervisory systems, including also computer
network management TCP/IP.
Thanks to universal construction OpenEye/BMS system matches easy
to the new standards and communications technologies. Such functionality
extension is realized by added/ configurated additional translator
module and don't require nor conception nor constructive changes within
operating yet part of the system.
In case of bigger environments there is a possibility of mediation layer
dispersion and mediators taking out appliance, communicating with
central system part by the standard network protocols. Such possibility
gives especial advantages in case of huge or created from many buildings
objects, with huge distances between resources and management system
central part. Remote resources communicate then with remote mediator,
that attached to system by protocol enabling communication for bigger
distances, for example radio modem.
Information received from building automation and protection systems are
analyzed according to patterns defined by system administrator. In
dependence on defined conditions there are undertaken automatic
activities that have a purpose to correct a problem (in situations, when
such operations performance is possible and purposeful), system
operators and responsible services informing . OpenEye/BMS system
usually doesn't interfere in external systems with huge influence on
security (like for example fire protection systems), solely monitors by
making accessible by them information. All data flowing from environment
after filtering and formatting are collected within relation data base,
being a material to later analysis and reports. Data can be collected
also from external mediation systems as integration by the usage of API.
Within the simplest configuration whole system can be installed within
single machine. However within implementations demanding increased
reliability and efficiency, each individual sub-system can operate
within dedicated machine. There is also a possibility of gradual
rebuilding, enabling - by adding resources functionality - to multiply
particular sub-systems and carrying them o the separate, specialized
machines without a necessity of other concept system changes.
Monitored and managed resources presented by operators' consoles as
graph maps reflecting real building's rooms arrangement. Flexible
configuration possibilities enable to observe environment within
different detail levels and within different aspects. Thanks to
considered organization, that is sights that compose maps, operator can
move among them. Background graphics for particular sights (rooms,
floors, building parts) can be created from the basis or imported from
architectural plans - if they are accessible in electronic form. Big
system's advantage is vector formats appliance possibility, that possess
better usage qualities. Changes happening within environment are
presented as communicative graph events within maps as message
containing detailed text description and event's attributes. Thanks to
it operator informed about everything require his attention, in fast and
clear way, having easy particular information access.
System possesses operators authorization flexible possibilities. Their
rights are defined by groups as profiles enabling to particularly
describe what operations can be performed by particular operators
groups, what kind of information can be accepted and what kind of
resources should be seen for them. Thanks to it different profiles
operators can observe completely different managed environment aspects
using graph maps strictly applied to their necessities. It is also
possible competence groups creation for different domains specialists
responsible for particular building management particular domains, like
automation systems, access control, extraordinary situations monitoring.
In order to ensure sufficient security level, system access is protected
by individual password of each operator. Moreover all service activities
are performed within system are audited, thanks to it , in relation to
historical data of managed environment , it is possible detailed and
chronological events course in exceptional situations.
In damage or intervention demanding situations of specialist units,
OpenEye/BMS system can automatically notice suitable internal and
external services. Basic solution is making system with configurated
profile enabling to observe only chosen, critical information without
necessity of any system's modification. In order to ensure critical
information attainability to the mobile users or possessing limited
communication possibilities, there are accessible noticing mechanisms by
the electronic post, pager and short text messages. Pre-configurated
information sent by the management system automatically just after alarm
appearance. Other communication media for automatic noticing purposes
can be integrated by the usage of API. API integration interface enables
also sending critical information to the external strange fast reaction
system, enabling to fulfill more complex requirements concerning data
range and access.
