Build a Smart City Without Having to Start from Scratch

Cities today grapple with the need integrate new technologies with existing infrastructure in order to ease financial pressures, develop strategic approaches to sustainability, increase economic development and protect the long-term wellbeing of their citizens.

The rise of “smart cities” has generated new applications of the Niagara Framework®. Our open platform allows communities to build an ecosystem of interconnected commercial buildings, smart grids, water utility management systems, transportation applications and government services administration systems. Niagara can help municipalities operate with greater efficiency, awareness and intelligence, while maintaining and enhancing their current infrastructure.

While many cities see the value of converging their systems into a smart city model, they face challenges:

  • Legacy city infrastructure management systems are costly to replace.
  • Diverse city subsystems are difficult to integrate .
  • As there are typically multiple providers for each of many interacting city systems, an open communication protocol that they all understand is needed.
  • Applications are needed to optimize system behavior for day-to-day operation, as well as during special events (natural disaster, sporting events, etc.)

Niagara enables every system to communicate and interoperate, including:

  • Energy (smart grid, alternative energy, demand management)
  • Water utility (wastewater treatment, system monitoring)
  • Transportation (fleet, fuel, traffic management, street lighting)
  • Buildings management (municipal, commercial, industrial)
  • Government services (public safety, CCTV, digital signage)

Take the Open Approach

Niagara open solutions preserve existing investments and take advantage of new technology and products without abandoning current installs.

Connecting Security to Your Building Ecosystem

You can seamlessly integrate access control, identity, video surveillance, intrusion and visitor management systems with other building automation services such as lighting, HVAC and energy management all using powerful Niagara framework capabilities.

Energy & Sustainability

Operational data from building infrastructure and equipment can be centralized in a Niagara controls network. 

Building Management

Building managers are empowered in their quest to provide comfort and security to building occupants when they have an open, flexible path to deploying smart building technology.
