Choices create peace of mind.
Owners should have choices and solutions providers should earn their business by providing value rather than relying on proprietary technology to “lock” their customers in. Open systems provide owners with choices for building products and systems as well as installation and service providers. Options ensure that the best quality is delivered and maintained throughout the life of the building.
CTC is a leading integration expert in providing open systems. By utilizing open technologies, truly integrated building systems are now able to be implemented. With an open system utilizing a common protocol structure, devices from multiple vendors come together as one seamless user interface.
BACnet or LonWorks alone does not make a system open. Proprietary configuration tools can lock a customer into a single source service provider. A true open system uses a common set of configuration and programming tools available to many vendors. This allows for an open software platform that is serviceable by multiple service providers.
As an independent integrator, CTC chooses best-in-class sub-systems from multiple manufacturers to provide the optimum solution for each application. This approach creates a flexible, expandable DDC system that gives the customer the most versatility.
