Communication

DESIGO – openness based on standard protocols

Open communication between building systems facilitates the straightforward and secure integration of third-party systems at all levels. The standardized, independent communication protocols are accepted throughout the world, are subject to incremental development and ensure a consistent exchange of information between devices and systems. Flexibility, straightforward operation, and the ability to satisfy individual customer needs offer the protection of investments in the long term.

DESIGO™ integrates light and blind control, security equipment, access control, fire detection, and alarm systems, lifts, distribution of electrical energy, etc., in addition to HVAC control.
