Heat rooms only
when they are being used!
TIME CONNECTOR - a software tool which transfers
your room bookings from the IT world into the BACnet world
- Adapts your room temperature quickly and flexibly to the actual needs
- Saves heating costs and thus preserves the environment
- Compatible with all BACnet controllers
Why Time Connector?
The rooms´ occupation schedules are actually entered only once - when the building or the automation system is brought into operation. Subsequently, they are left unchanged.
This means that the operation mode of the building´s technical equipment, especially that of the heating system, does not get adjusted to the actual occupation of the building. Instead, the rated room temperatures are needlessly kept up, even during breaks in occupation or during periods with no room occupation at all.
WSW Solutions offers an interface between several office calendar systems and BACnet compatible building automation.
With the help of the software Time Connector, the time periods and the set temperatures for heating the rooms are continuously computed based on actual room occupancy obtained from appointment calendars. They are subsequently transferred into the building´s control system. Thus, energy can basically be saved during every break in occupancy and the building can be operated considerably more efficiently.
Particularly high savings potential can be achieved when room occupancy is highly irregular or difficult to plan. With Time Connector, even short-term changes in room planning become manageable and get respected by the heating control within a few minutes.
Get to know Time Connector
You schedule your room bookings in appointment calendars of widely used calendar applications, such as Outlook. Time Connector periodically identifies the upcoming room occupancy from these calendars, then translates it into scheduling programs according to guidelines which are adapted to your building and finally applies them to your BACnet compatible building control.
The rules for translation and transfer of your room bookings (i.e. assignment of your calendars to rooms or BACnet controllers and objects, setup of operation modes/rated values, priorities, lowering values, preliminary phases etc.) are being configured by your BACnet-competent building technician in the user-friendly interface of Time Connector.

Time Connector supports
- Timetable software
Untis / WebUntis
- Exchange Server (Outlook)
- Google Calendar
- Yahoo! Calendar
- Import of *.csv-Files (format configurable) and *.iCal-Files
- Direct entry of appointments
Time Connector controls
...up to 1.000 BACnet objects of the following types:
- Analog Output/Value
- Binary Output/Value
- Multistate Output/Value
The scheduling programs - re-computed minute-by-minute - are either transferred into schedule objects within your automation controllers or provide the switching points for continued direct supply of outputs or value objects, driven by Time Connector.
At any time, integrated control mechanisms provide you insight into the status of the schedule transactions and the respective BACnet controllers and calendar systems. You can trace back the transaction process over 7 days.
