Integrated Low-Voltage Building Systems

The landscape of low-voltage building systems is changing dramatically. Technological developments and software advances have created a shift to the fully-integrated, interdependent high-performance building system. Integrated low-voltage (120V to 250V) systems offer greater energy efficiency and significant cost savings to the end user.

In the past, BAS, fire alarm, security, lighting control, and CCTV operated independently as separate subsystems, with little or no communication with each other, and installation and service were handled by separate contractors. With today’s integrated low-voltage systems, lighting systems are linked with occupancy sensors, a swiped security badge can activate an HVAC system, and a fire alarm can trigger security cameras in an affected area. There are numerous low-voltage building management solutions available, including Honeywell EBI and Siemens Desigo, which integrate various systems at the front-end software and graphics level. Demonstrations are available online.

The trend toward building systems integration has created a need for single-source, specialized contractors that can design, install, and service low-voltage systems and work with power distribution systems. Omni’s long-time specialization in power distribution and integrated control has positioned us to provide clients with a superior total-care solution.
