VisionGuard - intelligent emergency lighting visualisation software

As the successor to our successful CGVision software, the powerful new VisionGuard visualisation software offers state-of-the-art monitoring, control and configuration of DualGuard-S (DG-S) as well as monitoring and control of ZB-S central battery systems. Designed for all current Windows environments based on WIN10 or Windows Server 2016, the software covers all common application types, from dedicated PC workstations to virtualised environments with remote access.

The intelligent and user-friendly VisionGuard visualisation software offers maximum reliability, even when it comes to controlling and monitoring large emergency lighting systems. Up to 500 individual DG-S or ZB-S emergency lighting systems with over a million luminaires can be monitored via a single control room monitor.

Especially for larger buildings such as airports, universities, museums, sports and industrial facilities, VisionGuard is the ideal choice to ensure the optimised and cost-effective operation of emergency lighting systems. VisionGuard is also a powerful tool for small projects thanks to the user-friendly display of all status information, the extensive notification functions and the mobile application for tablets or smartphones.

Manage up to 1 million emergency lighting fixtures anywhere, anytime

VisionGuard's modern web-based client-server architecture meets all the requirements of today's Windows-based IT environments. This web-based client-server design is compatible with all standard browser types. This eliminates the need for any special proprietary client software, which would have to be installed separately and with special administrator rights. This saves time and the need to involve an IT specialist.

What’s more, the responsive web design, which can be used with any standard browser, enables the use of mobile devices such as tablets or smartphones running on any operating system (e.g. Android, iOS).

The optional BACnet/IP interface for DualGard-S allows for the connection of an external building management system (BMS) via the BACnet protocol. The BACnet interface provides numerous status messages and four analogue battery values per DualGuard-S central battery system in the form of BACnet objects.
