Saving Power - Customization Project

4 Apr 2018

Office buildings are one of the most power consuming spaces nowadays. 


Abit Software has a simple solution that can make your office building a “Green Space”, providing Door Access Control boards that can be customized based on your needs. 

In this case, we offer you the following solution:  We are able to program our system to power up all the inside electromagnetic door locks half an hour before the working program started and to shut down the power when the last person in the building used his access card to exit. Be smart, be safe, “Go Green” with Abit Software.

Office buildings are one of the most power consuming spaces nowadays. Abit Software has a simple solution that can make your office building a “Green Space”, providing Door Access Control boards that can be customized based on your needs.

One of our clients that had ACX-24 boards installed, access controllers using card readers, brought up a challenge for us: his ideal was to save as much electricity as possible in his office building from plugged in computers, monitors, printers and from the electromagnetic door locks.

We upgrade the boards with a new firmware, without any components replacement on the controllers, to do exactly that: create a “Smart office” able to save power solution.

You are probably wondering: How is this working? Well, we will explain it to you:

We defined two time zones: one time zone contained the outside doors (the main entrances in the building) which were closed allowing access only with cards at all times, the other time zone contained the inside doors.

The board was programmed to power up all the inside door locks half an hour before the working program started and to shut down the power when the last person in the building used his access card to exit.

In addition to this we added some features as a precaution measure:

·         If anyone tried to force open the door, the board powered up the system in order to keep everything safe, started a 2 minutes alarm and sent a text notification about the event.

·         If someone enters the building after business hours using an access card, the system will lock all the doors inside and will go into saving power mode after that person leaves the area.   

Other two time zones were added to the system for the windows: one time zone between working hours and the other one outside working hours. The ACX board allows you to add a Module with additional inputs in order to add contacts to your windows, for example. 

A contact was added to every window and if anyone tried or succeeded in opening a window outside of working hours, the system would have the same protocol as for the doors, described above.

Have you ever tried to imagine how many power you could save by unplugging your computer, your monitor, your printer every single day? Well, multiply it by 2 billion people that leave their computers plugged in daily, and you will understand why at least office buildings should use our solution for a better future.

Be Smart. Be Safe. “Go Green” with Abit Software.
