GEZE and Priva are planning to cooperate on projects in the building automation sector.

GEZE GmbH has signed a statement of intent with Priva B. V. to expand its collaboration with respect to building automation systems and solutions.

Cooperation and interdisciplinary collaboration

Energy efficiency, safety and convenience are some of the most important demands in the building automation sector – all over the world. To meet these demands optimally, it is essential to integrate all the necessary elements in a building. Cooperation, and interdisciplinary collaboration between the various product groups, are kei in achieving this integration and making the ‘internet of things’ a reality.

In the construction industry, the BACnet communication standard guarantees open communication and interaction between product groups. Priva and GEZE have been applying this standard for some years, marking the start of theircollaboration.

Added value for our clients and end users

Both companies are developing their automation products and solutions with the open standards. "As a result, these solutions are therefore highly compatible, so that we can create excellent added value for our clients and end users. This means we can provide flexible solutions for specific client demands,” explains Brigitte Vöster-Alber of GEZE. "‘This means that wWe can respond to challenges in building automation more quickly, and at a more detailed level as a result," adds Meiny Prins of Priva. Priva and GEZE can confirm the positive influence that this cooperation has had so far, and will continue to have in future, in particular in the benefits their customers will enjoy.

The aim is to find the right combination of safety and comfort functions

To make this statement of intent a reality, joint working groups were trained in optimised building automation and visualisation issues so that they could explore and improve synergies in the energy efficiency and building comfort sectors.

A key aim is to offer clients and end users the right combination of safety and comfort functions for intelligent visualisation, transparent monitoring and efficient control of networked building automation systems to allow climate control, energy savings, optimal re-use of water and much more: not only in functional buildings such as offices, shopping centres, hotels or hospitals, but also in the horticulture sector and greenhouse cultivation.
