Title: Building Information Services and Control System (BISACS): Technical Documentation, Revision 1.0
Published: November 14, 2007
Abstract: The goal of the Building Information Services and Control System (BISACS) is to create a computer supported system that will allow external users to be authenticated then logged into the system in order to gain access to building information such as its structural layout and/or to monitor a particular building or set of buildings for alerts. The control aspect of the BISACS is to allow external personnel to control certain essential devices located within a building.This document describes how the underlying software foundation was created and integrated in order to support the Building Information Services and Control System s various goals. As a project, BISACS has not fully matured; it is the intent of this document to describe the underlying support system implemented for BISACS as well as what has been implemented so far in supporting the alerts monitoring feature of BISACS.
