Facility to Go
Facility to Go is a text-based smart phone app used for point monitoring and commanding. This app utilizes BACnet Web Server to connect directly to a Siemens field panel and allows the user complete access to all points on the panel. No customization required. Must have a web services license enabled.
The Facility PrimeTM application is a building management iPad® application for interaction with the APOGEE Building Automation System (BAS). Through customized screens, Facility Prime enables quick, mobile interaction to view only or view and command environmental conditions and HVAC control systems. Facility Prime goes beyond accessing data and provides two-way interaction between users and the building automation system. Users develop customized graphics for their facility using Facility Prime Editor or contracting their local Siemens office to create the graphics.
Facility Prime Editor
The Facility PrimeTM Editor application provides all the capabilities of the Facility Prime application as well as the ability to create and modify the graphics to exact user needs. Proper log-on and password authentication with a Siemens APOGEE IP panel is required to enable Facility Prime Editor’s configuration functions. A library of graphical elements containing gauges, graphs, device images and position animation is included with Facility Prime Editor. In addition, editors may import documents, photos, and images to be used in their graphics. Building automation controller data and equipment settings are linked to graphics by entering point address information. Significant knowledge of the BAS is required for configuration of the screens and point data.
