Increasing comfort in our working and living environments, operating buildings in an efficient, safe and sustainable manner: with the new GEZE Cockpit building automation system, automated system components from the areas of door, window and safety technology from GEZE and other manufacturers can be networked, controlled centrally and monitored precisely. BACnet, the most widespread communication standard in building automation, deals with interoperability. GEZE Cockpit can be used as an independent building automation system, or be integrated into a higher-ranking building control system.

The browser-based application for complex door demands

GEZE Cockpit is particularly recommended for functional buildings such as events centres, hospitals, laboratories, office buildings or department stores, where the demands for operating and protecting automatic doors or windows vary depending on the time of day. For example, if multifunctional doors are operated with different modes of operation ('permanently open', 'automatic', 'shop closing') during the day, and as secure escape and rescue route doors at night, the GEZE Cockpit networking makes it possible to monitor and operate the doors, and change the mode of operation or time-controlled functions remotely. Unwanted door conduct, alarms and disturbances can be localised quickly and comfortably, and countermeasures can be taken immediately.

The right software for lightning speed reactions

With GEZE Cockpit, up to 62 GEZE products can be networked – revolving and sliding door systems, escape route and emergency exit protection systems, windows and window groups, electric strikes or motor locks. The central hub of the GEZE network is the BACnet building controller, which can be installed together with the different GEZE software packages. The configuration software GEZE Cockpit BASIC is pre-installed for integrating the system into a higher-ranking building control system. As well as basic settings (e.g. network settings, user management, device and building configuration, data protection), the base package ensures that all connected doors and windows can be confirmed and displayed at their exact locations within the building.

With the GEZE Cockpit VISU and GEZE Cockpit VISU+ software packages, GEZE Cockpit can be used as an independent building automation system:

In addition, with the GEZE Cockpit VISU package, the current situation and functionality of the doors or windows can be recorded on a graphic interface at a glance, so that the conditions can be changed at the touch of a button. The creation of so-called scenes enables several devices to be operated simultaneously – whether at the touch of a button or time-controlled.

The GEZE Cockpit VISU+ package enables users to configure individual monitoring functions and alarms, about which they can be informed by email: the 'email service' ensures that all doors and windows can be monitored without a visual inspection. A great advantage for facility managers and security personnel – they can be informed of situation changes, alarms or errors from any area, and react immediately; for instance, if the emergency push button of an escape door is activated in a department store, a door is opened by an unauthorised person in a care home at night, or a door in a public building is not locked after closing in the evening.

The software applications on GEZE Cockpit are browser-based, so that information can be accessed with any device with an IP – be it a PC, tablet or smartphone. Data exchange between GEZE Cockpit and the integrated doors and windows is carried out via the IO 420 BACnet interface module.
