  • Patent number: 9727039
    Abstract: A facility management device manages communication data that is transmitted and received between remote controllers and an outdoor unit and/or indoor units. A temporary-memory controller stores communication data that was received by a communicator, and transmission-waveform data that was acquired by a transmission-waveform data acquirer for a specified amount of time in a temporary memory. An abnormality determiner determines whether or not there is abnormality in the communication data that is stored in the temporary memory. When it is determined that there is abnormality in the communication data stored in the temporary memory, a data copier stores all of the data that is stored in the temporary memory in an abnormal-data memory.

  • Patent number: 9544145
    Abstract: An equipment manager manages the operating state of equipment. A user verification processor performs user verification according to a request from a monitoring terminal, and when user verification is successful, generates for each facility management device a verification code in which verification data, to which a digital signature has been added using a self-owned secret key, has been encoded using a public key of each facility management device, and transmits the verification codes to the monitoring terminal. After receiving the verification code, a verification code analyzer decodes the verification code using the self-owned secret key, and performs verification by verifying the digital signature using the public key of a representative facility management device. When verification is successful, a Web server is able to monitor and manipulate data that indicates the operating states of all of the equipment that is managed by the equipment manager.

  • Patent number: 9267815
    Abstract: A data collecting device collects operation data of facility equipment that constitute a facility device control system. Upon receiving a collection data request command from a monitoring device, the data collecting device reads one or multiple items of operation data of the type specified by the collection data request command from among multiple items of collected operation data, and sends to the monitoring device response data wherein the read data is stored in a prescribed format. When a user inputs an operation that requests monitoring of operation data, the monitoring device has the user select a desired operation data type from among the operation data types that can be disclosed to the user, and sends to the data collecting device a collection data request command wherein the selected operation data type is specified.

  • Publication number: 20150346763
    Abstract: An apparatus manager monitors and controls respective apparatus connected via a network. A learner learns load periods when a significant load is imposed on a processor, on the basis of a utilization condition of the processor, and stores load period information indicating the learned load periods in auxiliary storage. The clock speed controller references the load period information, and controls the operating clock speed of the processor to be a normal level clock speed if the current time is during a load period, and a low level clock speed if the current time is during a time period other than a load period.
