No other solution considered could provide the capabilities of the S4 Open: BACnet-N2 Router. In addition to the technical capabilities, this solution met the financial goals of the project.
The fact that everything is integrated into one control system, instead of three separate systems, is a real positive.
A robust product solution. The user interface is easy to learn, intuitive and easy to install.
We are very satisfied with this solution. It was not only the most economical approach, but the monitoring of these critical systems has also mitigated loss and damage.
All the expertise that Bob, Chris and Victor brought to the project and the fact that they were all on site working together was key.
The migration went very smoothly; in fact, I have been doing integration projects for many years and the S4 Open: BACnet to N2 router made this one of the smoothest.
A contributing factor to the success of the integration was the use of the ComBus Quick Tester. This is a handy device. I would not do another job without one.
The ATS team made extensive use of the ComBus Quick Tester to validate the N2 buses before starting the integration process.
Most other gateways tend to be inflexible and thus are difficult to configure and require many hours of support.
We have never had this level of controllability with our two previous control systems.
I was very worried initially about this project due to type of facility, weather, location, level or expertise needed, but at the end of the day, the customer is very happy!
The S4 product was easy enough for a guy like me to feel comfortable with after only a few short hours.
Really helpful, Iâm ready to go forward with our project.
I think that I understand all of the technology going into the system which makes it much easier to sell.
