1 min read

Building X, Siemens AI-based cloud-enabled platform that speeds up sustainability, experience, and performance for future-proof buildings, is where the company is expanding its fire safety offering.

Applications and an application programming interface ( API ) are used to expand in order to improve service provider maintenance procedures, increase transparency, and shorten response times in the event of incidents.

Users of the modern building AI platform Building X can digitalize, manage, and optimize their building operations. This ought to result in better performance, improved sustainability, and improved user experience. It is a component of Siemens Xcelerator, an empty online business platform that enables users to scale up, simplify, and accelerate their digital transformation.

The web-based Fire Manager as well as the portable Fire Connect are included in the Building X fire apps.

By allowing users to select the data and app bundle that best suits their needs, this opens the door for greater flexibility.

The user workflow for fire safety operation and maintenance will be digitalized by the fire apps and API. This reduces the disturbance caused by building users while saving time and resources and enhancing safety. It enables service providers to connect straight to the fire panel and mildly monitor all sites at any time.

The apps ‘ dashboard, email, or portable push notifications can be used to view the current status of product maintenance, incidents, and alarms. This openness makes it possible to effectively plan, execute, and document maintenance activities. The improvements not only fuel modern transformation but also have a positive impact on sustainability. It is possible to reduce CO2 emissions related to annual site visits by mildly providing maintenance options and a fire system status.

“While ensuring compatibility and cross-functionality with other intelligent building applications on the platform, we are excited to enhance the Building X portfolio with fire apps and API.” Vice President at Siemens Smart Infrastructure Peter Nebiker said. This not only enables a smooth and comprehensive solution for smart buildings, but also establishes the groundwork for potential cross-domain use cases in the future. Secondly, it makes it possible for our service providers to provide their clients with optimized services while making better use of the experts at hand. And in the end, it pays off in terms of sustainability.

Tens of countries around the world now have access to Fire apps and API, and many more are being added.
