Desigo – the building management system that is writing history
Learn more about Desigo™, the only system in the world for the efficient control, regulation, and optimization of a single system or several systems in a building.
Buildings are the heart of modern life. Individuals currently spend about 90 percent of their time in buildings – and building requirements and optimization potential are correspondingly high. On average, operating costs account for 80 percent of total building costs. The Desigo™ building management system is flexibly programmable, scalable, and features a modular design; as a result, it offers you myriad possibilities to exploit the potential of your buildings. With the Desigo CC™ building management platform, for example, you can control and optimize individual or multiple systems in a building or building complex. In rooms, Desigo™ Total Room Automation offers easy control and optimization of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, and shading.
The Desigo portfolio
Easy integration and flexible expansion thanks to system openness
One of Desigo’s key basic principles is consistent openness: The corresponding communication protocols and IT standards allow you to integrate different systems as well as third-party devices. Desigo’s modular design means an easy startup, while Desigo’s guaranteed migration capability provides long-term investment security.
Modular design for individual requirements
Thanks to its modular concept, Desigo grows along with your building management requirements. You can flexibly tailor the system to new conditions at any time and gradually integrate new systems. Desigo is appropriate for commercial buildings of all sizes as well as for distributed building complexes and campus infrastructures. Thanks to its modularity and flexibility, Desigo protects your investments and helps you plan the future of your company.
Easily operate buildings more efficiently
Desigo is the most comprehensive system in the world for building automation, and it is continuously being refined. With Desigo, you can use a single intuitive platform to easily control, regulate, and optimize your heating, ventilation, air conditioning, lighting, and shading, energy management, fire safety, and security systems, including access control, video surveillance, and intrusion protection. That pays off with the following compelling benefits:
Increased building performance
The holistic control of your building exploits hidden potential.
Reliable safety and security
With an intelligent integrated system, you will prevent problems before they arise.
The consistent use of all synergies reduces operating costs by as much as 20 percent.
Thanks to seamless management, your company and your buildings will be sitting pretty – and you will too.
Optimal working environment
Coordination of all systems creates a comfortable work environment where everyone can focus on their work.
Desigo in real-life installations
Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning – at Fraunhofer CSE in Boston, all the systems are integrated into the Desigo CC building management platform and can be controlled from there. The graphical interface enables users to access any installed device. In addition, Desigo CC collects data like temperature and CO2 concentration, which can be used to further optimize the building automation.
As part of the Desigo building management system, Desigo Total Room Automation provides comfort, good air quality, and optimal lighting conditions at the room level while ensuring low energy consumption. Schwäbisch Media, the publisher of Schwäbische Zeitung, emphasized a sustainable building concept at its new headquarters in Ravensburg and decided on Desigo TRA to ensure optimal workplace conditions.
O'Hare International Airport
As an open platform, Desigo CC regulates building management, energy consumption, and fire safety systems equally in Terminal 3 of Chicago’s international airport. With 40,000 data points, the building management system is controlled from 24 management platforms. Fire safety and access control round out the technology package that protects all airport occupants.
