Is the ALC better than other automation systems

Can we consider the automated logic’s web-based building automation system as the best control system

ALC is backward compatible all the way back to its first control module. ALL configuration software is installed on the server, you know how to use it, you can do what you want. If you like the version of the software, you don’t have to upgrade. Once you buy it, it is yours. ARCnet, it is 156k baud. ALC is really fast, move a jumper on the module, flip a couple of dip switches and you’re on regular MS/TP. Most of the controllers use relayed outputs Visual ‘Logic’

ALC has certain disadvantages like

you can’t just run down to the local controls parts house and get an ALC module, you have to get controllers from dealers. When you do program changes, you can’t do them ‘live’, you have to download them, The newest big module (OF1628) you can lock points, then download, and the outputs don’t change, but you still have to download it. There is no wireless option for anything in ALC
