Opus Supervisor

  • Product Description

    Opus Supervisor integrates hundreds or thousands of sites into a single software platform and provides a real-time, user interface for the Opus Building Automation System (BAS). It enables users to monitor their BAS systems and make changes to the way their buildings are controlled. It serves as a centralized data collection, storage and reporting environment for critical BAS information such as alarms, events, and histories. In addition, Opus Supervisor provides enterprise-wide automation – such as global schedule and setpoint management, database management, and integration with other enterprise software applications.

  • Site Monitoring

    A real-time graphical user interface that allows user to connect to remote sites via wide area networks (WAN) to view a site’s operating environment and adjust system parameters – such as schedules and setpoints. Sites can easily be accessed by store number or location.

    Alarm Management

    Opus Supervisor provides real-time access to alarm and event data from your entire enterprise. It allows users to view alarm attributes such as alarm name, type, and source. Alarms can easily be prioritized, acknowledged, sorted, filtered, and suppressed. Alarms can be routed based on level of priority, time or type.


    Opus Supervisor provides unique reporting tools for multi-site BAS users. It allows users to select from pre-defined reports or create ad-hoc reports as needed. Standard reports include: energy usage (normalized by square foot), setpoint/schedule exceptions, comfort reports, and BAS diagnostics such as – operational and energy performance alerts.

    Global Schedule/Setpoint Management

    Opus Supervisor allows users to broadcast schedule, setpoints, and other control setting changes across an entire enterprise with a click of the button. These changes can be applied to all sites, to a pre-defined site group, or allow users to select sites on an ad-hoc basis. All changes are logged and saved for future use and/or audit.


    Opus Supervisor allows users to create BAS applications through a graphical user interface. Users can easily create and configure Opus devices and control strategies for a variety of HVAC, Lighting and Energy Management applications
