Honeywell has updated its flagship building management system, Enterprise Buildings Integrator (EBI), enabling facility personnel to view and enhance core building technology with greater ease and precision. EBI R430 helps improve efficiency, and reduce energy and operational costs by simplifying setup, scheduling and control. New features include a more robust automation engine, comprehensive mobile access and a redesigned user interface designed to accelerate both routine and advanced tasks.
The latest version of EBI addresses the growing trend of smart, integrated buildings — facilities where automated systems are merged and managed across the enterprise network. This provides an enhanced and more comprehensive view of all equipment and activity, which helps boost productivity every day and deliver savings over the life of a building. According to the U.S. General Services Administration, a smart building can trim energy use up to 14 percent and raise operational efficiency as much as 12 percent.
As a result, more than a quarter of the facility construction and retrofit projects Honeywell leads now involve some level of integration, a five-fold increase over the last decade. And EBI is the engine that provides the necessary interface and intelligence.
