NACE is an automation system designed to control one or more commercial or residential buildings. It provides the logic required for local and remote management of individual devices, such as:
Fire and burglary alarms.
Access control systems.
Gas, water and energy meters.
Passenger and freight elevators.
Telephone exchanges and communication systems.
Other such devices.
Modularity & Remote Management
The simplest NACE system consists of only a PLC unit (Programmable Logic Controller with a number of input and output ports) and a local user interface (desktop application) running on a Windows or Unix/Linux computer.
A more advanced system can be fully adapted to the technical attributes of the building as well as any client's special needs and requirements. One or more dedicated servers may be set up, providing web user interfaces (and/or custom APIs) for ACL-based remote access and control by operators with different privileges.
Remote management clients always use encrypted Internet connections (HTTPS, SSH or a dedicated VPN). An additional (also encrypted) dial-up connection can be set up through a traditional telephone line, to serve as a backup. In cases of emergency or other abnormal events, dispatchers can be notified via email or SMS messages.
We customize each NACE system to closely match clients' needs and requirements. For more information, please contact us to directly consult our developers, integrators or system administrators.
