BACnet Schedule Push Action (Preview)
Now you can push 24 hours of schedule data direct to a BACnet schedule objects as exception schedules. This will allow the following benefits:

  • HVAC operators to see the day's schedules from their system
  • Controllers will have 24 hours of schedules to work from if network fails
  • HVAC logic like optimal start and stop can be utilized on the controlled equipment
  • HVAC operators can add exception schedules at a higher priority if they want to temporarily override Events2HVAC schedules

JCI MSEA Send Attendance Action

This new action will read either expected attendee count or calculated % occupancy based on expected attendees and room capacity and will send this value to an analog point. The HVAC system can use this data to change the loading of the HVAC control and/or room OA intake requirements based on expected occupancy.

Note: This currently only works with CollegeNet R25, Google Calendar, and ChMS Event Providers. Future support for other providers may be included later if that data is available in the event schedules.

Support For Network Thermostat UP32/RP32 Thermostats (Preview)

Two new actions have been added the the NetX device interface to allow sending:

  • Timed event overrides
  • Occupied/Unoccupied Mode Control (Blue backlight models only)
