This document describes how BACnet® controllers, both those from Johnson Controls® and third party suppliers, integrate into the Verasys system through the Smart Building Hub (SBH).
BACnet controllers integrate with the SBH through BACnet MS/TP communications. The SBH monitors and supervises a network of BACnet devices and acts as a BACnet workstation for all integrated controllers. The operator views data on a local web user interface hosted on the SBH or on the Verasys Enterprise user interface hosted in the cloud.
- The SBH can interface with objects in third-party BACnet controllers.
- The SBH can provide extended supervisory functions for objects integrated from the connected third-party BACnet controllers. These extended functions are similar to those that Verasys provides natively for Smart Equipment controllers from Johnson Controls.
