Our world is becoming increasingly digital, networked and smarter - smart buildings are now indispensable. In contrast to smart home, this refers to a non-residential building. In the course of digitalization, we often talk about building control technology (BMS), which means intelligent software used to monitor and control the various automated systems in modern buildings. With the help of networking, information of all automated components, for example of a heating system or a lighting system, is communicated in one platform. From the ideal building control system, the daily users ideally notice only the additional comfort. Intelligent buildings enable economical building operation and can help us take a step further on the road to greater sustainability.
The audako IoT platform with its interfaces to common bus systems such as KNX, BACnet, M-Bus and Modbus, which improve compatibility through their open communication, enables seamless integration into your building automation system. audako lies above the various worlds and bus systems that are intelligently and logically networked in the cloud or on premise. With many integrated functions for building management, the audako platform makes it easier for operators to handle their buildings or properties on a daily basis and makes already smart buildings a bit "smarter". For example, sensor technology can be used on lighting systems or heating and air conditioning systems to optimize energy consumption depending on the time of day and occupancy level. As an operator, you receive a very powerful tool for managing your smart buildings or properties.

All recorded process data in real time, directly measurable values such as temperature, relative and absolute humidity or air pressure in actual and target state as well as current and historical energy consumption values of electricity, water and steam are stored, analyzed and processed by audako. The amount of data determined by the BMS (Big Data) is presented in a simplified way on the visually high-quality dashboard as Smart Data with a variety of different widgets. This makes it easier for the user to evaluate the data. audako is a central software that provides comprehensive reporting on costs and conditions. The aim is to use Smart Data to provide operational, energy and personnel resources in a forward-looking and demand-oriented manner. Your Smart Data can be accessed from anywhere and at any time, whether by smartphone, tablet or PC.
With audako Building IoT you get an integrated alerting and notification tool. audako sends notifications taking into account available staff according to work plan, responsibilities and alert escalation rules. Supports users and response teams with individual settings and assistance. Notification profiles can be set according to user needs, e.g. how the notification should be sent, whether by SMS or e-mail. audako can filter and prepare the energy and building data according to different purposes for different users. To prevent users from being overwhelmed by too much data and to enable them to troubleshoot effectively, audako works with different user roles that are assigned different rights, duties and views depending on their responsibilities.
Our goal is to prevent failures! audako notifies you of maintenance conditions before something fails so that operation is guaranteed at all times. Regular maintenance and repair of all plant components and systems of the building technology are a prerequisite for operational safety, efficiency and value retention of the entire building. audako detects anomalies and can make predictions of failures, thus increasing plant and system availability. Predictive maintenance makes it possible to plan your maintenance work. You can set procedure-specific settings and user-specific information outputs that enable forward-looking maintenance scheduling. In addition, you benefit from a convenient management tool for maintenance appointments, about which you can be informed proactively.
Increasing energy prices and stricter legal requirements of the Energy Saving Ordinance for building operators are growing demands that are hard to understand and put a strain on financial and human resources. audako Building IoT promises energy efficiency in all building areas. You can reduce operating hours of all technical systems through modern and demand-driven control. You keep your energy data all at a glance thanks to modern web technology and can access and view it from anywhere. The compatibility of our energy package with ISO 50001 lays the foundation for a certified energy management system. With our energy package, we help you to make energy consumption transparent, to sustainably reduce overall energy consumption, and to be able to make safe decisions about investments.
The digital recording and processing of operating and consumption data in real time, enable efficient maintenance and servicing with additional management tools for assistance. With audako, your building can be managed more efficiently, as the maintenance of running equipment and systems is also managed centrally.
audako demonstrably helps you to reduce the operating and heating costs in your building or property. You can optimise operations and benefit from cost savings. Uncover energy guzzlers today and promote cost efficiency tomorrow.
audako Edge Gateways enable any number of properties to be connected to a cloud or on premise installation. Thus, all properties are served on one central platform. The control and monitoring is done centrally on the same user interface.
audako enables you to react quickly to maintenance in the event of a malfunction or failure of systems. This is ensured by data in real time, intelligent effective alarm functions and the possibility to react via remote maintenance, independent of location, on all end devices, almost simultaneously. Trust us when it comes to this!
When audako automatically controls lighting, heating or air conditioning for you, you offer users a modern, attractive and pleasant feel-good ambience in the building. Think one step further in the direction of the smart office: an optimised room climate can increase employee efficiency and productivity. Create competitive advantages for yourself, because digitised work buildings can be attractive for skilled workers.
Investments in building automation and audako Building IoT for efficient use of resources pay off. Depending on the investment, payback periods of a few years are realistic. In addition, investments in a BMS can be financed by the realised savings in energy costs. The value of your building increases due to the modernisation measures.
With the global Covid -19 situation, human safety in buildings has taken on a new dimension. The crisis year of 2020 has forced many companies to drastically rethink their approach. The legal requirements for building operators and employers are constantly increasing. The specifications demand entry controls and stand-offs, because not many people are allowed to be in a building. Only intelligent buildings can meet the implementation of these requirements and protect people in buildings. In the audako IoT platform, additional digital counting systems and video cameras can be integrated as control functions. By remotely monitoring and controlling technical systems in the building, our software can help provide people with a higher level of safety.
With audako, optimal control of ventilation systems is possible. "Ventilation traffic lights" can be used to measure the CO2 content in the room to alert users to poor air quality and prompt them to ventilate. The measurement technology required for this, such as CO2 sensors, can be quickly retrofitted. After all, it is not always possible to avoid being in the building with many people. Spacing rules, mouth guards and partitions offer a little protection against saliva infections, but what about the air? US studies indicate that in aerosols despite 5 meters distance, here specifically the Corona viruses have been detected. The particles are usually very small and "stand" in the air, so the risk of infection increases for each person present in the room. Temperature, air pressure and intensity of ventilation can be remotely controlled thanks to audako, without the need to deploy personnel in critical zones.
"We have been using the energy monitoring system from narz since 2011. It makes our consumption transparent and reveals energy guzzlers in the company. In recent years, we have therefore been able to optimize existing equipment and use the data to make decisions about new investments, so that the introduction of the system has paid for itself in a very short time.
