by Brianna Crandall — March 17, 2022 — Automated Logic is bringing reliable and flexible building automation to customers with its new hosted and managed software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering, WebCTRL Cloud. This new solution for the WebCTRL building automation system (BAS) brings deployment flexibility, while helping them scale for growth and reduce their support burden. Automated Logic Corporation, a provider of innovative building management solutions, is part of Carrier Global Corporation, a global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.

The new WebCTRL Cloud solution is available for a subscription fee, providing a predictable cost of ownership, explains the company. The subscription fee includes cloud hosting, server maintenance, WebCTRL site reliability monitoring, database redundancy and backups, and software upgrades. This eliminates the need for customers to install, configure and manage a building automation server in the building. In addition, there is no costly information technology (IT) infrastructure to maintain, and IT compliance directives for the server — including reliability, security, and uptime — are managed by Automated Logic.

Mead Rusert, president, Automated Logic, stated:

We have a history of providing innovative, flexible and simple solutions, and our customers can now choose how to deploy their WebCTRL system. With WebCTRL Cloud, we are transforming building automation for the digital age by providing customers with an opportunity to save energy, keep occupants comfortable, and save money by replacing upfront expenditure and support costs with convenient periodic subscriptions.

Powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), the comprehensive cloud offering broadly adopted worldwide, WebCTRL Cloud provides a reliable, scalable, infrastructure on demand as well as a secure, isolated computer environment for each WebCTRL Cloud deployment and leverages AWS Application Migration Service to make the transition seamless for existing customers.

Both new and existing customers can take advantage of WebCTRL Cloud, as it supports projects across multiple vertical markets, including commercial office buildings, K-12 schools, higher education and hospitality. Customers will also have peace of mind knowing that WebCTRL Cloud uses BACnet Secure Connect to encrypt network communications and keep their building automation networks secure. In addition, AWS cybersecurity products help keep customer sites protected.
