    Can any of you control specialists tell me the name of a system that could be retrofitted to 4 split systems on a small
    office complex that could be operated by a remote computer and
    be able to set temps and modes etc? Have a building owner wanting to do this. Thanks for any suggestions.

    I want to thank all of you for helping me find some solutions to an area that I am not up to speed on. I admire
    your knowledge in this area and look forward to learning more about it.

    I'd use 4 LonWorks fan coil controllers like the Circon SCC-300 and an i.LON100 to serve up monitoring/control webpages for the end user. You could probably get all the hardware for less than $2k. Check out http://www.engenuity.com for your choices.

    Many modern control systems will have some type of web server/internet connection for remote management....I agree with LonBoy, check out engenuity.com for some systems...just go "open"...

    is another site.

    or go to http://www.utahcontrols.com/web_demo.html

    to see an active site.

    I listened in on an Andover On-site conference call and they are supposed to have a more cost effective option for smaller buildings as there is no programming/engineering involved. Basically a few selector switches and communicating t-stats. A fair amount of info - trending, data, etc. right out of the box. Check out http://207.76.105.22/ for more info.

    What ever you go with I would also recommend that you go with an open system as well. http://www.engenuity.com is definitely a good place to look at open systems.
