Facility Managers commonly use BACnet to monitor HVAC, lighting and other systems. Elevators are expensive to maintain but few elevators are currently monitored using BACnet. The presenters will outline the benefits of elevator/escalator monitoring via BACnet. The BACnet standard now has new objects and services for monitoring elevators and escalators in a standard manner. The presentation will give elevator monitoring project examples. The presentation will outline BACnet’s role in implementing elevator Occupant Evacuation Operation (OEO).
1. Participants will understand the use case and benefits for monitoring elevators and escalators using BA
2. Participants will understand the need for new BACnet objects and services for monitoring elevators and escalators
3. Participants will be able to outline the requirements and the options for implementing a BACnet-based elevator monitoring project
4. Participants will be able to explain BACnet’s proposed plans for implementing Occupant Evacuation Operation (OEO) in a UL approved, networked manner using BACnet objects and services.
