Addressing the Modern Challenges of Building Management

In today's world, property and facility management faces mounting challenges. The pressures of rising costs, the complexities of disparate technology systems, the constant evolution of urban landscapes, and the inefficiencies that come from outdated infrastructure, all compound. Couple that with new mandates in cities and countries demanding more eco-friendly buildings, the challenge only grows.

With PlaceOS, transform every challenge your building faces into an opportunity. Seamlessly integrate, automate, and evolve with a system that not only works but preempts your needs.

Why PlaceOS

PlaceOS is not just another building automation system. It's a modular system with a large library of integrations. Each of these integrations, no matter how critical, are hot-swappable. Your functionalities stay intact even if you choose to change integrations, ensuring unmatched flexibility and future-readiness. By allowing each integration to serve as an input or output, you set conditions that trigger actions, tailoring the automation to your exact needs. From making your building smarter to transforming your entire workplace, PlaceOS scales with your ambitions.

Analytics & Insights

Once connected, you then have access to real-time data and insights. Use these findings to craft automations that align with your building's requirements. For example, by merging calendar and occupancy data with your HVAC system, you might find it's running longer than needed, offering immediate optimization opportunities. PlaceOS isn’t just about automation; it's about making informed decisions.

Examples of Automation

Optimizing a building's resources is more than data and analytics; it's about the ability to take action. With PlaceOS, you're empowered to stack multiple conditions and triggers, enhancing efficiency in energy use, operations, and the overall building environment. This creates an automation ecosystem that encompasses in-room devices, lights, access control, and more. Discover how PlaceOS seamlessly integrates and transforms these various systems:

How PlaceOS Building Automation Works

Understanding PlaceOS begins with understanding its core components: Drivers, Modules, and Triggers. These elements form the backbone of PlaceOS's unmatched flexibility and automation capabilities.

Drivers integration_instructions

Hot Swappable Integrations: PlaceOS Drivers are swappable pieces of code that abstract the communication with external systems. With these, you can reconfigure integrations and coordinate actions across varied systems seamlessly.
check_circle
Service Drivers: These bridge external data and controls onto the PlaceOS platform, ensuring smooth composability. Service Drivers handle crucial tasks, such as protocol, authentication, and even reconnection, allowing for seamless interfacing with external systems.

Logic Drivers: Think of these as the orchestra conductors within PlaceOS. They coordinate other Drivers, allowing for custom functionalities across multiple Service Drivers.

Modules data_object

How They Work: For instance, if there's a Driver designed for a specific TV brand, you can have 100 Modules of that same Driver, with each module communicating with a different physical TV.
check_circle
Real-time Responses: Modules are responsive. Using the TV analogy, if a module detects a TV's power state as 'on', it responds in real-time. Moreover, functions, such as adjusting the volume, can be executed directly through the Modules.
check_circle
Automation Potential: The real-time value of Module states can be used as inputs for Trigger conditions. When these conditions are met, Triggers can execute multiple Module functions, even across different Modules.

Triggers auto_awesome

check_circle
No Code, Just Results: They allow specific actions to be executed each time a pre-set condition is met, eliminating the need for constant coding.
check_circle
Versatility: Every automation in this system thrives on PlaceOS Triggers. You can view all available triggers on the dedicated Triggers page in the Backoffice.
check_circle
Tailored Responses: Triggers can be enabled or disabled for specific rooms or zones. Whether you're adding a new Trigger or removing one, it's all managed efficiently in the Backoffice.
