GEZE at eltefa 2017: Innovative systems for ‘Smart Buildings’

Innovative new solutions mean automated doors and windows can now also be integrated into modern building automation. GEZE will be presenting multifunctional door and window systems integrated into network solutions from all product areas, and offers new opportunities for convenient, secure and energy-saving building operation in smart buildings.

Highlights at eltefa

Highlights at the trade fair will be the new GEZE Cockpit building automation system and interface modules for integrating GEZE products and systems into the building network. GEZE uses BACnet and KNX for this – the most popular open communication building automation protocols in in the world.

Simplified control with the GEZE cockpit

GEZE Cockpit enables automated GEZE products from the areas of door, window and safety technology to be controlled reliably and monitored precisely. ‘’The new system allows the products’ ‘full intelligence’ to be incorporated into the building network for the first time: ‘’doors and windows can be controlled ‘intelligently’ together with other system components. Data exchange between the GEZE Cockpit and the integrated doors and windows is via the IO 420 BACnet interface module. The system can be used as an independent building automation system, or be integrated into a higher-ranking building management system.

Central monitoring and operation via KNX

GEZE will also demonstrate the networking of automated window systems that are integrated into a building automation system with the KNX standard. For controlled, natural ventilation, the GEZE chain and spindle drives of the IQ windowdrive series can be integrated as direct bus participants in a building system via the award-winning IQ box KNX interface module. This means that automated windows can also be ‘intelligently’ monitored and operated from a central location.

IST Systems electric strikes

GEZE will be presenting the complete range of electric strikes with variants for standard applications as well as fire protection and safety doors. IST Systems electric strikes distinguish themselves with small dimensions and compact configurations. They are compatible with the electric strikes from all standard manufacturers, and easily replaced in existing doors.
