What the building manager needs is a system that is convenient and readily available to control the machinery that is spread out all over the building.
- The machine room is often placed in an obscure and remote location, but the building manager or operator is located in the office. If they need to operate the machines or monitor their status then they need to personally go to the equipment room.
- In a noisy and hot machine room, people don't want to go there unless absolutely necessary, don't even bother mentioning the danger of electrocution from the high voltages present.
- Having a remote interface is absolutely necessary not just for convenience but also for the sake of safety.
