CONFIGURE AND USE TAPA
INSTALL TAPA EDGE SERVER
Install Tapa Edge Server and connect to the building’s existing Building Systems communication protocol (typically BACnet).
Tapa searches the building’s systems for controls, sensors, end points, and other IoT devices that can be registered to a occupants smartphone.
Once registered the Owner, Operator or Occupant gains access and control to the dashboards and virtual devices that have been assigned to them.
