The integrated system for building and energy management
Qanteon combines an energy management system (EMS) and building management system (BMS) in one comprehensive software tool. Energy management in accordance with ISO 50001, operational management of control and regulation technology and operational management of building technology all become effortless. Qanteon's user interface is designed so simply and intuitively that it has already won several design awards. Its system-centric display helps users to quickly record all operating states and energy flows. The integrated building and energy management system now also comes as a cloud solution.
A bridge between controlling and technology
Technicians and business people often see buildings from different angles: the technical staff ensure, above all, that the systems run safely and the building users are comfortable. Controllers and energy managers tend to be more interested in consumption, savings and key performance indicators (KPI). Thanks to Qanteon, these two sides can work better together – on the basis of an integrated view and data base. Technicians have a better sense of efficiency, consumption and costs. Controllers and energy managers understand the technical relations in the systems better. They can switch between system views and energy reports with a single click. Users can choose their preferred visualization – from a traditional DIN display, through modern 3D animation to efficiency benchmarking in a four-square diagram. Everyone involved thus has a clear overview in the growing jungle of data. Thanks to the excellent usability of Qanteon, new users quickly find their way around. Available as both a stationary or cloud solution.
Connect Service Platform
Secure remote access to your systems, including online services
Using Connect, you can access your building automation at any time from any location over the Internet. And with maximum security: Connect meets the strict ISO 27001 standard for critical infrastructures. The level of protection matches that of online banking. Simply log into Connect via a browser – immediately you will see the familiar user interfaces of your systems. You can do remotely everything that you would normally do on site. For example, you can check the system status and change setpoints or programs. Kieback&Peter can also access your systems remotely via Connect – provided that you give your permission for access. Thus, you can also benefit from Kieback&Peter online services: Our support and service technicians use Connect to carry out diagnostics, updates or remote maintenance online, usually just as precisely as if they were on site. This saves time and money for long journeys. With Connect and the right Kieback&Peter service package, your systems are always in top condition.
Fast help in emergencies and on weekends
Faults in system or building services are often emergencies: the risks are not just of damage, operating or production shutdowns. In some cases, people’s health or lives are at risk – in hospitals, for example, or for energy and water supply companies. Critical systems, though, are usually very safe and have redundancies. But wherever human beings and technology work together, errors do happen from time to time. With Connect from Kieback&Peter, remote first aid is available in the blink of an eye – much faster than any technician could reach you. Remote diagnostics does not solve every problem on site. But it is always better if the experts on standby have the right tools and replacement devices with them. Operators also use Connect in their everyday working lives – such as a Facility Manager who looks after several shopping malls at once: he does not have to go to each site to sort out the smallest issue. He can control the system parameters conveniently from his desk. He can even provide standby service at the weekend from a tablet on his sofa.
5 good reasons for Connect
Connect has the same protection level as online banking: the platform is designed to the latest IT security norms and certified in accordance with the strict ISO 27001 information security standard. Its encryption technology is always kept up-to-date by automatic configuration management. We link the controller to the Connect platform via special routers and by means of secure VPN tunnel connections. We have a selection of pre-configured hardware at our disposal for this. We use the existing infrastructure in your building or, if necessary, we create a new one. Mobile radio, DSL or existing company network: security is key. Connect works exclusively on reliable, protected servers operated by Kieback&Peter in Germany. Communication with clients is IP-based and encrypted over HTTPS.
Using Connect, operators can access their systems at any time and from anywhere in the world. The only prerequisite: Internet and a standard web browser. The Connect platform integrates any number of building automation systems of any size and manufacturer. With the operator’s permission, Kieback&Peter’s service technicians also have remote access.
With Connect, you always remain in control of your building automation system: remote access by third parties is possible only with your explicit consent. Only you decide which users can access your systems when and with which rights. In Connect, you can set up individual user roles with corresponding rights and restrictions for every application. Or you can grant only temporary access – for short-term service work by Kieback&Peter, for example. All via web browser, of course. The logbook function offers additional transparency. This documents all access and activities in detail and sends the documentation to the operator and other parties involved on request.
If you take out a 24/7 service contract with Kieback&Peter, we will be on the job immediately to handle any faults or breakdowns. With Connect, we can trace many causes of faults by remote diagnostics and send the right service provider to you instantly with the right piece of equipment – a replacement pump, for example. This saves vital minutes and can often prevent worse.
With its simple usability and transparent access rules, any user can easily find their way around the Connect platform. As Connect is browser-based, you do not need to install special software or an app on your PC, tablet or smartphone.
