• Identify and network Automation Level Network (ALN)  Building Level Network (BLN) and Field Level Network (FLN) devices.

Datamate Base

• Perform database backup and restoration for BLN and
  FLN devices.
• Communicate with ALN/BLN and FLN devices.

Point Operations

• Use Point Monitor, Point Log and Sub-point Log to  display point information.
• Command points at the ALN/BLN and FLN levels.
• Describe point addressing schemes for ALN/BLN and
  FLN devices.
