GE Current Introduces New Daintree Controls Software for Better Building Management

CEW 15 CS GE Current 400

 August 9, 2021

GE Current’s all-new Daintree Controls software platform allows users to manage building portfolios big and small from a single, easy-to-use interface. Daintree Wireless Area Controller (WAC60) is certified by the ioXt Alliance, which is widely recognized as a global industry leader in IoT cybersecurity.

This web-based application empowers users to monitor, troubleshoot and report on the energy performance of indoor, outdoor and industrial spaces from a single application.

DCS is built on Current’s three pillars of building management: It is simple, scalable and flexible. Whether building managers are managing a single unit or a vast portfolio of spaces, they can adjust scheduling or lighting parameters based on hours of operation, seasonality, evolving energy codes or business energy requirements. With real-time visibility of what’s happening in specific zones, an entire building or a network of buildings, those same managers can identify issues when they arise, preventing costly oversights.

The upgradeable nature of DCS enables users to expand and adapt lighting controls applications as needs arise and technologies become available. The software can be seamlessly integrated into other building management systems to gain a centralized and holistic view of building performance in the easy-to-understand graphical interface of DCS. Managers can also use the software’s read/write capability to work with API programs to funnel real-time data into applications that enable location-based services, people counting and more to empower organizations to better understand how spaces are being used.

“We’ve made this platform simple and actionable so all users can more easily understand what’s happening in their spaces, what needs adjustment and where there are opportunities for savings,” says Melissa Wesorick, Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer at Current. “It’s all part of our mission to make commercial and industrial businesses as efficient and effective as possible.”

Data security is built into the software. Current’s defense-in-depth strategy provides multi-layered protection, leading to a recent cybersecurity certification by the ioXt Alliance. To earn certification from ioXt — widely regarded as the global standard for Internet of Things (IoT) security — a device must meet eight criteria that fall under the categories of security, upgradability and transparency. The Wireless Area Controller (WAC60) used in the Daintree Wireless system exceeds the mark in these categories, allowing users to deploy wireless lighting controls and IoT solutions with confidence.
