Alerton Ascent Compass Software 1.2 simplifies building automation
Alerton has released an updated version of its Ascent Compass Software. The solution provides users a cleaner, simpler interface that reduces the steps required to optimize building systems and energy efficiency.
Introduced in 2014, Compass is a part of the Alerton Ascent building automation suite of products that monitors and controls a host of building systems, including HVAC; lighting; security/access control; fire and life safety; elevators and escalators; and others.
Compass 1.2 software features an enhanced navigation tree that enables each user, or group of users, to tailor the building automation system to only present features pertaining to their work. The interface is simpler and reduces the number of steps required to complete a task. Another feature is context-specific menus that provide relevant data and tasks wherever a user is within the system. This allows users to easily view, create and edit alarms or any system data points controlled by Ascent. Additional enhancements include updated graphic images, controls and views.
