In the past the change of a PC that had system supervision software on board required the reinstallation or repurchasing of a version of the software that fit with the new operating system. All of the peripheral locations had to be equipped with a local PC with “client” software installed, or there was a risk of losing the data in the case of an interruption of the connection with the central server. Furthermore, in most cases, all of the modifications had to be carried out with the system out of service, with organizational difficulties and a notable increase in maintenance costs.
The new systems, which require careful supervision, are more and more delocalized and the need to be able to carry out remote control is increasingly strong.
Being informed in real time of faults, alarms, and anomalies, performing the utilities command, checking the hours of operation or intervening to modify the time slots of lighting activation or climate control is fundamental today.
This has been furthermore been accompanied for some time by the need to carry out the energy monitoring of all of your installations to control energy efficiency, avoiding wastes that entail significant cost increases.
