Tridium is the developer of the Niagara Framework, a software infrastructure created to simplify building automation. The platform lets facility managers control all of a building’s equipment—even proprietary or standalone systems—from a single portal.
A truly “open” building management platform, Niagara enables the communication between equipment from all types of vendors and manufacturers. A web-based portal provides access to the controls and offers advanced management options such as analytics, equipment performance histories, schedules, alarms, and more.
How Niagara Software Works
Tridium built its Niagara Framework in order to help facility managers. It’s simple and convenient to control all of a building’s equipment using one system.
Some types of vendor equipment use communication languages that are only compatible with their proprietary systems; even when vendors use an “open” language, such as BACnet or LonWorks, there’s no guarantee their equipment will integrate with a BAS.
Niagara’s key difference is the range of vendor-specific drivers, which enable successful equipment communication. Through manufacturer alliances, Tridium has developed a vast library of drivers. Nearly any vendor’s equipment can integrate with Niagara:
- Johnson Controls
- And more
Benefits of Niagara
Besides the clear advantages of a single control interface, the Niagara Framework supports advanced building management.
Flexible, expandable, customizable
Any size of facility can use it, and the Niagara software easily accommodates building expansions or new equipment.
There’s no need for a dedicated BAS workstation with Niagara’s web-based portal. If you have internet connectivity and a secure sign-on, you can access Niagara.
When it comes to optimizing equipment efficiency and improving building management, the more data, the better. Niagara’s powerful analytics use operational data to help identify trends, improve energy efficiency, evaluate management strategies, and more.
With seamless access to system data, you can run up-to-the-minute reports, including equipment performance and building power usage. These insights help you make informed decisions and respond quickly to changes.
Niagara supports cutting-edge building automation technology, including IoT. With IoT sensor data, fine-tuning controls is simple and effortless.
