Supervisory control and data aquisition (SCADA) system provides centralized control and management of services (utility systems) and monitoring of their status in large-scale facilities. Among such facilities there are production plants, agricultural complexes, office buildings, shopping malls, sport venues and accommodation facilities.

Supervisory control system is normally introduced together with automation of services and implies build-up of a uniform information system that acquires data about equipment status and transmits those data to the local dispatch center for on-line monitoring and control (local supervisory control) and, in the case of distant or widely scattered buildings and facilities – to the central control station (remote supervisory control). In combination with automation, supervisory control contributes to enhancement of energy efficiency, safety and labor conditions and to reduction of operating expenses. 
Depending on the nature of an automated facility, supervisory control system can comprise any or all of the following services:
  • power supply; 
  • air conditioning and ventilation (forced and exhaust);
  • heat supply (centralized and decentralized);
  • exterior and interior lighting;
  • water supply and wastewater disposal;
  • burglar alarm, access control and video monitoring;
  • fire protection (smoke removal ventilation, fire extinguishing, fire piping);
  • power, water and heat consumption measurement system
    lifts; and
  • other systems (cold supply, air handling, etc.).
Efficiency of a supervisory control system is ensured not only by reliable equipment, but also by a friendly graphical interface that will be understandable for all recipients, such as operators, engineers and managers. intraHouse provides visualization of equipment and services irrespective of their number and the facility area. It also gives wide opportunities for modeling.
intraHouse allows remote access from mobile devices (smart phones and tablets) via a Web interface, to monitor the facility from any place on earth. The system will archive measurement values, register events and accidents, and generate reports; when necessary, it will also send data to outside recipients (readings of metering devices for different resources). Expansion of the facility area or addition of new equipment will not make any problem and the system adjustment will take minimum time.
