Yet another 21st-century leap in capability, Intellastar is a hardware module that allows the application of FIN Stack and SkySpark offline in relation to the building’s network. IT departments are very protective of their networks and restrict what is allowed to operate within their security protection. Intellastar can connect directly to meters and other systems, and allow FIN Stack and Skyspark to function, without engaging the building’s network. It has its own security hardware, but is not pulling or pushing data across the IT network. It also has the capability to automatically perform some peak demand limiting functions, and it vastly expands the communication capabilities of the system by providing wireless mesh, Bluetooth, Cellular 3G and Wi-Fi options.
