TAC Releases I/NET®
Seven High-Performance Security System
Windows®-Based System Eliminates Need for Server
DALLAS – TAC, a world leader in building IT, security systems and energy solutions, announced the availability of I/NET® Seven, a new software version of its high-performance security system.
A Windows® 2000-based security system, I/NET Seven is designed with a peer-to-peer architecture, allowing any device to interact with any other device in the system without depending on a host computer.
According to Lonnie Laue, director of marketing for TAC Americas, by eliminating the server and moving access and functions to the workstation level, I/NET not only reduces the system’s vulnerability to attack, but also lowers maintenance and installation costs.
I/NET Seven is built upon the MSDE SQL open database, allowing users to:
Easily access all system data
Link the database with others
Use standard reporting tools
I/NET Seven also provides a flexible, reliable security solution for integrated, interoperable building management, including access-initiated control, powerful reporting, scalable software, CCTV and video badging capabilities, and critical alarm monitoring. In addition, I/NET’s backward compatibility protects all earlier investment in the legacy system.
TAC Vista® IV
LonWorks®-Based System Controls, Checks and Analyzes Daily Building Operations
DALLAS – TAC, a world leader in Open Systems for Building IT®, security systems and energy solutions, announced the availability of TAC Vista® IV, an enhanced version of its LonWorks®-based building management software.
Offering the benefits of an open architecture, TAC Vista gives building owners and managers added flexibility – and freedom – in their ability to choose, install and operate a variety of building management systems.
The enhanced TAC software combines environmental controls with facility and energy management features into a single, seamlessly interoperable solution. Using the Windows® 2000 operating system for easy interfacing, TAC Vista runs on TCP/IP and standard network equipment, and provides LAN communication via Ethernet® or fiber optics.
A modular, client/server design also allows facility managers to customize TAC Vista to their own, specific needs. In addition, host workstations can communicate across the Internet as well as via commercial WAN/LAN environments.
According to Lonnie Laue, director of marketing for TAC Americas, TAC Vista is suited for any building management application, regardless of the building’s size, the number of buildings, or how many miles separate them.
Facility operators can respond to critical alarms in seconds, while historical logs and data trending provide system monitoring that is both reliable and flexible. With TAC Vista, customers are equipped for early, accurate decision-making, enabling them to plan for the future in terms of operational costs, energy management and facility analysis.
