April New products
baspi
The BASpi-Edge provided the affordable and compact solution to control the fountains at a university. The schedule of the pumps and lights for the fountains were controlled by an electronic timer, but integration to the Building Management System (BMS) was difficult due to the lack of conduit for low voltage wires to the electrical/control panel. Using a BASpi-Edge with BACnet/IP over Wi-Fi allowed the integration of the fountains to the BMS.

The BASpi-Edge is a 12-point cloud connected BACnet edge controller powered by Raspberry Pi. The Building Systems Manager, used three relay outputs to control a fountain pump, filter pump and lights. Two binary inputs were assigned to read the run status of the pumps. One of the universal inputs was setup as pulse input to connect to a water pulse meter and calculate the makeup water in one hour and send an alarm if it goes above a normal threshold. Alarms were setup for any mismatch between command and status of pumps, and email notifications are sent to facilities personnel so they could respond proactively.

The BASpi-Edge and BASview3 were instrumental in helping the Karl Corporation convert an older BEMS in a commercial multi-story tenant building to current technologies.

Coronavirus: On patrol with Yas Mall's robot security guards


Robot security guards are on patrol at Abu Dhabi's largest mall to help keep shoppers safe during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Two robots equipped with surveillance and thermal cameras roam the floors of Yas Mall every day and night to report live to the operations room.

The sophisticated security team was drafted in to ensure "an extra eye" is cast over the sprawling venue when upholding health and safety measures have never been more important. “If people are not wearing their masks, they are reported to the control room and are then reminded to put on their masks,” said Yasser Al Marzooqi, head of retail at Aldar Properties, which manages Yas Mall.
