Has Siemens stopped supporting your building automation system?

Siemens, along with most other building automation companies, has been known to force their customers into upgrading to their latest technology by no longer supporting their legacy systems. At Computrols, we believe this is unacceptable.

Our Solution

Don’t throw away a perfectly good control system. Let Computrols integrate to your legacy controllers to get the most out of them. Not only will you save money by leveraging your existing infrastructure, but you’ll also gain better control of your building automation system through Computrols Building Automation Software (CBAS). CBAS also gives you the ability to manage your own BAS and save on the excessive service contracts required by other manufacturers.

Steps to Integration and Energy Savings

CBAS1. Add Computrols LX controllers and head-end to communicate to the existing Siemens infrastructure.
Assessment2. Complete a retro-commissioning to identify energy efficiency strategies.
If/Then3. Analyze data using Computrols simple-to-use software and implement new controls sequences accordingly.

The Long-Term Plan »

4. As Siemens’ legacy controllers fail, replace them with Computrols lifetime-warranty controllers on the existing communication trunk.

5. Use Computrols complimentary 24-hour tech support line as needed.

6. We’ll never force our customers to upgrade but as technology evolves, we will create new products. Computrols will offer to buy back your old controllers and our customers only pay the difference for the latest technology.
