Open Standards: Interoperable Solution
Open architectures and industry standards have the power to dramatically reduce costs, improve customer choice, provide reliability and trust, and ultimately drive greater innovation and value. This happens through “interoperability” – when different manufacturers build their products based on the same set of standards, so company A’s control products work seamlessly with Company B’s products.
Unlike proprietary building energy management systems, Daintree’s ControlScope solution can interoperate with any third-party ZigBee standard products allowing customers to create the optimum solutions for managing and monitoring their lighting, HVAC, plug load energy consumptions, and more.
Open vs proprietary protocols
Daintree Networks’ ZigBee standard solutions provide many benefits over proprietary solutions. The benefits include:
- More lower cost third-party products available
- Greater choice of products
- Greater flexibility to create tailored solutions for managing and monitoring one or more energy loads (lighting, HVAC, plug loads, etc.) and innovate over time
What is ZigBee?
ZigBee offers a global standard to support the needs of a diverse ecosystem of stakeholders including building owners, operators, product manufacturers, architects, and tenants. These groups know that a standard offers the most cost-effective, secure and reliable way for products to interoperate and fosters innovation.
The ZigBee Alliance is a non-profit association of more than 400 members driving development of ZigBee wireless technology. Daintree is among leading global automation suppliers (Honeywell, Johnson Controls, and Siemens) promoting world-wide adoption of ZigBee as the leading wirelessly networked, sensing and control standard for use in commercial, industrial, energy, home, and consumer electronic areas.
