Caverion Niagara

-Building automation system

Caverion Niagara is a browser-based building automation system designed for property automation and energy management purposes. With Caverion Niagara it will be able to integrate all separate building automation systems into one single entity that can be managed through a web browser. In this way it will be avoided having to learn many different systems, greatly simplifying systems management. 

Caverion Niagara is a scalable system that can be configured according to the requirements of client’s property. It can be employed both in massive commercial and office buildings with complicated processes and in small residential blocks of flats. The residential blocks of flats can be connected in a regional monitoring system to enable centralised control. In addition, the history, alarm logs and reports can all be found in one and the same central location.
