Automation engineers search for the fastest and most cost-effective way to integrate Building Management Systems (BMS) and communicate with different types of building equipment. The objective is to install, manage, and maintain automation systems used in industrial, residential, and commercial facilities. Property owners, facility managers, and integration companies, among other real estate players, are challenged to reduce cost and project duration.
Engineers in the integration sector also need solutions to locally process data independently from the Cloud. That is why Wattsense is rethinking the traditional process of integrating buildings and is introducing its Hub offer as an on-premises version of the Wattsense Box.
What is the Hub?
The Wattsense Hub is a universal connector for BMS that stands out from traditional gateways for its quick installation, advanced features, and versatility. Designed and manufactured in France, the Hub can communicate with different protocols, whether they are open or proprietary.
Advantages of the Wattsense Hub:
Desktop Configuration Console
The desktop app dashboard is designed with the target user in mind as a way to guarantee intuitive and clear user navigation.
So easy and quick to install that anyone can do the job. Users can connect field devices in just a few clicks.
BACnet Server and universal smart converter
A simple, interoperable, standard way to forward field data coming from different devices to a BMS. The BACnet server scans every data point coming from any communication protocol and can be seen and shared through our user console quickly and efficiently.
Integrated to the system
Connect the required software to the Hub using the BACnet server and MQTT client protocols.
The Wattsnese Hub can be used in projects where the internet connection is not permitted, such as government buildings, data centers, etc.
A tool to quickly verify if the equipment to connect is compatible with the Wattsense service. As of this moment, 520 types of equipment are available on the Configuration Wizard. Check our online version.
With the Hub, there is no need for subscriptions and recurring payments. We believe in flexibility so if in the future you do decide to use our Cloud Service and subscription plan you can always make the change.
Embedded radio functionalities such as LoRaWAN and W-MBUS.
A product for BMS integration
Installing or upgrading Building Management Systems is an expensive and challenging task due to the complexity of communication protocols and a lack of smart devices to ease integration and decrease the time spent on job sites and trips.
The Wattsense Hub feature offers a budget-friendly route to scalability by giving companies flexibility, and control to expand their services, reduce installation time, and operational costs. This flexibility gives users the opportunity to adapt quickly to the evolving property maintenance sector.
