The GEZE Cockpit building automation system: smart, secure and efficient control of building technology
With this innovative control unit, automated system components from the fields of door, window and safety technology from GEZE and other manufacturers can be networked, monitored centrally and controlled – even via smartphone or tablet. Via the IO 420 interface module, GEZE products can be integrated into network solutions with BACnet, and be networked with each other via BACnet MS/TP.
A unique complete solution is a multifunctional, centrally controlled swing door system with an automated and a manual door leaf. With the ‘robust’, award-winning Powerturn drive and tried-and-trusted GEZE door closer technology, the door system combines accessible door control, emergency exit protection, fire protection, increased burglar resistance, complete protection when passing the door and remote monitoring. The universal drive design across both door leaves is a visual highlight.
“GEZE smart building solutions aim to provide automated and networked building infrastructure solutions to make modern buildings more comfortable, secure and ultimately reduce energy consumption. With a lot of research going into developing this, we are confident that GEZE’s smart solutions for doors and window automation and a future of facades will be well received in the region.” concluded Charles Constantin.
