Sydney, Australia - Citect announced the launch of CitectSCADA Facilities, a flexible, open, control and monitoring solution for facilities management companies and the commercial building sector. According to the company the product can be used to connect and monitor diverse systems including HVAC, lighting, security, and fire in virtually any size building or commercial complex.

''CitectSCADA Facilities builds and expands on Citect's reputation for providing open and reliable software solutions for industry with a product that has been designed specifically for the commercial building sector,'' says Frank Volckmar, corporate marketing manager for Citect. ''The design of CitectSCADA Facilities is centered on reliability, with multi-level hardware redundancy to ensure constant communication and failsafe monitoring. By aggregating all building systems into a single, integrated system, facilities managers can improve customer service, reduce operating and maintenance costs, and benefit from centralized monitoring of their assets.''

Craig Resnick, director of Research, ARC Advisory Group, says, ''Successful facilities management entails taking a holistic, performance-based approach to facilities monitoring and tracking key performance metrics in real time. CitectSCADA Facilities is a solution that provides facilities managers with the necessary tools to integrate and track systems performance, increase ROA and reduce operating costs''.

Centralized monitoring allows facilities managers to improve energy efficiency, increase security, integrate reporting to IT systems and ensure round the clock reliability, even across wide area networks. For example, CitectSCADA Facilities can help to significantly reduce operating and maintenance costs by tracking and reporting energy use, building by building or area by area. In addition, it allows facilities managers to reduce energy consumption, track after hour use and generate customized reports on each building tenant. CitectSCADA Facilities can also connect to video monitoring, card-based access, and record keeping for additional security.
