Honeywell has launched a new platform to automate building management processes, marking what the company said is one of its “most substantial leaps in building controls innovation to date.”
The new platform, Advance Control for Buildings, features built-in cybersecurity, faster network speeds and tools to make buildings smarter, safer and more sustainable.
Honeywell said the new system responds to a growing demand for more energy-efficient and connected buildings, with a new emphasis on identifying and mitigating maintenance issues and unnecessary emissions.
“Today, buildings are facing mounting pressures around safety, operational efficiency and energy efficiency,” said Steve Kenny, Honeywell’s vice president of building management systems. “By pushing the boundaries of technological advancement, Advance Control not only helps building managers optimize their building operations to meet these pressures, but also champions innovation.
“Automation breaks down operational barriers to give building managers more control over the efficiency of their buildings, ultimately helping improve the occupant experience while advancing energy management goals.”
The news comes on the heels of Honeywell’s recently announced plans to realign its business with three “megatrends”: automation, energy transition and the future of aviation.
As part of this strategic overhaul, Honeywell also announced partnerships with semiconductor companies NXP and Analog Devices to digitize building management systems and bring capabilities such as machine learning, cybersecurity and autonomous decision-making to operations.
“Security resilience is increasingly required for networked control systems,” said Rafael Sotomayor, NXP’s executive vice president. “Honeywell’s Advance Control for Buildings platform leverages NXP processors that efficiently combine machine learning with advanced security technologies to protect sensitive building automation infrastructure.”
