Software for Tridium Niagara

Building automation engineers are still facing challenges trying to integrate controllers and smart devices. Often products of different vendors or even different series of the same vendor cannot communicate with each other. The rise of open standard protocols helped to improve the situation, but still there is a long way to go.

Tridium Niagara is one of the leading solutions is this field. It combines flexibility, openness and the whole set of features to build anything from a simple and stable gateway to a huge building management system. Niagara includes multiple protocols and even more are available from independent developers like us. We are proud to be a part of this community and to contribute to it.

From legacy hardware to the very latest building management systems, voice assistants, databases, electrical cars and energy analysis down to a millisecond – our experience in automation industries, software development and Niagara framework allows us to clearly see the needs of engineers and help to fulfill them. That’s why we created drivers for various popular building automation systems:

Why would you be interested in our drivers for Niagara 4? There are numerous situations in which you could benefit from integrating different systems using them. Here are just a few examples:

  1. Your client has a building with an existing legacy system and they wish to expand it using other controllers. An exchange of information between these systems is required; for example, the AHU controller should receive information about terminal equipment statuses and setpoints. A Tridium Jace device equipped with the appropriate protocol drivers could effectively solve this task.
  2. Your client owns multiple buildings with various systems and wants to consolidate multiple SCADA front-ends into a single software package for remote system control. The Tridium Supervisor, boasting a full stack of features for BMS control and, with the right set of protocols, is ideally suited for this task.
  3. When planning a new building management system, you may prefer not to be limited to single-vendor solutions. Instead, you aim to combine products from multiple vendors, achieving the best combination of features and cost-effectiveness. The Niagara framework, along with drivers for these vendor protocols, will enable fully functional integration and a superior user experience.
  4. In addition to a building management system, you are considering a cloud-based analytical package for energy prediction, fault detection, and various dashboards. Niagara can seamlessly normalize real-time and historical values from most BMS vendors and push this information into the cloud using MQTT or other services.

We are constantly working on new drivers and improving the existing ones. If you have any questions or need a driver for a specific system, please feel free to contact us. We are always open to new ideas and challenges.

In addition to driver we develop graphical widget to enhance Niagara user experience. Check out our Data Analytics and Visualization Library and groundbreaking 3D widget. These products are designed to help you to create beautiful and informative user interfaces for your building management system.
