Be in control of your facility.
From HVAC to lighting to door access control, our solutions give you the ability to control the environment and access to your facility. Whether you want to set the perfect ambiance for your space or are looking to control and monitor all entry points to your building, our dedicated team of experts can help you design and implement the right solution.
Indoor air quality has a direct effect on your comfort and productivity. Investing in a quality control system for your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system can help monitor and improve air quality by controlling the amount of outdoor air introduced into your building.
Houle’s extensive experience in HVAC control is the basis upon which our controls offering was built. We can minimize your energy consumption through demand control ventilation strategies as well as ensuring you get the most from your HVAC system with an optimum start, free cooling strategies, and morning warm-up/night pre-purge. With our knowledge and experience in installing HVAC systems, Houle provides design and system integration to optimize your HVAC control at a cost that provides the best value to you. Our team of trained estimators, project managers, system designers, and field technicians includes mechanical engineers, so our controls designs are tailored from the outset to provide industry-leading energy conservation without sacrificing customer comfort.
Providing the right amount of light when and where it is needed is fundamental to achieving comfort, productivity, and energy savings. Houle provides both indoor and outdoor lighting control solutions for commercial, industrial, institutional, and residential spaces. From a single space to multiple facilities, our flexible and scalable solutions can be tailored to your lighting control requirements.
From having lights turn off automatically when the space is vacant, to programming lights to dim to suit your special event, no matter what your intention is, we can help you identify opportunities and select the right solution. Some lighting control features you can deploy in your facility are:
- daylight harvesting – using natural light to reduce electric lighting levels
- occupancy and vacancy detection – adjusting/turning off light depending on space occupancy
- shade control – installing motorized shades to control the natural light coming into the space
- scheduling – setting lights to turn on, turn off, or dim based on work weeks, holidays, and events
- scene control – setting lighting scenes for different space usages and conditions
- energy monitoring – displaying usage data to show lighting energy consumption
- remote access – using your smartphone, iPad, or computer to access your lighting control system remotely
Houle offers both standalone and integrated solutions. With an integrated solution, your lighting control system is integrated with your HVAC, security, and/or building management system. Having one front-end user interface provides ease of use and improved operations. Whether you are looking for a standalone or integrated lighting, centralized or distributed lighting, we provide solutions based on the latest technologies available in the marketplace. Our experienced team of designers, project managers, and technicians have the skillsets to design, install, and service all your lighting control needs.
Door Access Control
Unlock your doors from your NFC or Bluetooth-enabled smartphone. Use your computer network smart card to open doors. From traditional pin-pad or proximity card swipe systems to cutting-edge biometric security devices, control access to your facility every day of the year.
Whether you are looking for wired or wireless integrated smart-locks, Houle’s government-licensed security consultants can assist you in designing an electronic access control system to manage ingress and egress from your facility. Our solutions enable you to set access to your facility during specified times, control and monitor all entry points, manage and track visitors within your facility, run custom reports to determine who accessed what area and when, and incorporate any number of buildings into one consolidated entity for system management and oversight.
Our expertise does not stop there. As experts in system integration, we can interface your access control system with other systems, including video surveillance, intrusion alarm, door and key management systems, time and attendance, and even specialized custom interfaces such as Microsoft Active Directory Service Interfaces.
If you have an old legacy system that needs upgrading, our access control bridge provides an interface between an older system and a newer system, giving you the flexibility to migrate the systems when your budget permits. You can take full advantage of a brand new access control platform without the upfront investment to swap out your entire system immediately.
