Nov. 23, 2005: Siemens Introduces First Wireless Building Automation System

BUFFALO GROVE , Ill. - Siemens Building Technologies Inc. has announced the introduction of what it says is the industry's first wireless building automation system. Based on mesh topology for reliability, says the company, APOGEE® Wireless field level networks are designed to provide increased occupant comfort, greater flexibility, and optimized, efficient control of HVAC systems.

Siemens APOGEE Wireless ensures network integrity by creating multiple redundant paths of communication, the company says. A mesh topology field level network is inherently self-healing, so users won't have to worry about losing communication with control devices across the building automation system.

"Simply put," said Jay Hendrix, manager, Wireless Solutions, "the network can't be compromised because the signal is automatically able to circumvent obstructions and find its target."

According to Siemens, wireless building automation can have a far-reaching impact on facility performance, cost efficiency, and return on investment. Operational synergies begin at implementation because wireless environments can adapt to changing business needs or new facility requirements. Also, eliminating the need for wiring accelerates installations and simplifies retrofits and system extensions.

Wireless-based systems also offer less costly migrations that can be staged to accommodate budgets and schedules, says the company.
