Honeywell launches new building management system
The new features help facility managers better streamline management and decision-making, promoting improved business efficiencies
Honeywell announced a new release of its building management system, Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI) to support the Middle East region’s smart building and cities ambitions.
EBI R500 leverages the connectivity of today’s buildings to help make them more strategic assets that are green, safe and productive, said a statement from Honeywell.
The new features help facility managers better streamline management and decision-making, promoting improved business efficiencies and providing greater control over operations, it stated.
EBI R500 improves the region’s facility managers’ ability to turn building data into actionable insights to deliver real outcomes in real time.
“With the right building management system in place, organizations can transform their buildings into intelligent contributors to organizational missions,” remarked Peter Costa, the vice president, Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions, Middle East.
“The latest EBI features arm organisations with tools to help turn complex data into real-time business outcomes that can mean reduced operating costs, better occupant experiences and improved occupant safety."
"The EBI demonstrates Honeywell’s commitment to making the Middle East’s buildings greener, safer and more productive in line with the region’s smart cities vision," he added.
According to Costa, the facility managers can now receive push notifications to their smartphones and tablet devices on possible building system and equipment issues before system failures or disruptions to the organisation’s operation.
The mobile app also allows for remote access to and management of building systems and data. Additionally, EBI is cloud enabled and can connect with a range of Honeywell cloud services, some of which analyze facility data and facilitate decisions on improving building performance and reducing energy costs, he added.
