Simplicity

Wether you're responsible for keeping the site running or the one who's to provision the system, you'll find the graphical interface very useful. Locally or remotely, you can see the current status of all devices as well as being able to audit or change their configuration. You can see the current firmware version, bus voltages and a lot more.

The Vidar bus is self configuring, meaning there's no need to keep track of slave addresses as in traditional bus systems. If you disconnect a device from one bus and connect to another, it will work without any fuzz.

Inputs and outputs are completely under your control. There are 4 I/O's on each device and you decide wether it's an input or an output. It makes no difference on which device the I/O is situated, you can still tie it to any event or alarm in the system.

Example:

Your installer have worked quickly and installed door magnets on all resident's doors. Unfortunately, some of them are NC and other NO. No worries - with a few mouse clicks you can easily invert the function.

 

Reports

The basis of improvement is to know how well you're doing and where the improvement is actually needed. Once you have the facts, you know what to improve.
