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.
