The owner of the four-story Ferroparque office located in Queretaro, Mexico, wanted it to be completely automated by integrating the security, lighting, access control and air conditioning within each office. While quality was extremely important for the project, keeping costs down was even more important. The owner also insisted on using local companies to install and maintain the system. In the end, the comfort, energy saving and security had to be guaranteed for the people working in the building.

After thorough research, Ferroparque’s owner turned to ISDE, a pioneer of home and building automation, as well as street lighting. ISDE selected the LonWorks open technology standard for the sophisticated Ferroparque building. Even though ISDE is located in Spain, the company assured the owners of the Ferroparque building that they had the expertise and local relationships required to ensure the success of the project. ISDE’s most important decision: Finding the very best way to interconnect the different LonWorks-based systems into the ‘smart building’ while meeting the overall goals of the company.
