Tridium Niagara 4

Niagara 4

For years, Niagara has helped people and machines communicate beyond the barriers of location or protocol. Now, with Niagara 4, we’re taking connectivity to the next level. See the power of our latest generation in action.

With nearly half a million instances worldwide, Niagara is quickly becoming the operating system of the Internet of Things. Its open API, open distribution business model and open protocol support give you the freedom to choose how you work, what you build and with whom you partner. Niagara enables you to connect and control devices, while normalizing, visualizing and analyzing data from nearly anywhere or anything.

Tridium's most powerful platform yet: Niagara 4

Key Improvements & Features

Niagara 4 builds on the legacy of the Niagara Framework® in new and exciting ways. It’s less reliant on browser plug-ins, faster and easier to use. Now end users can directly access, analyze and act on a wide range of operational data. A truly open framework, Niagara 4 delivers a variety of notable improvements to help businesses take full advantage of the Internet of Things, including advanced visualization and new search, security and navigation tools.

All New User Interface

Niagara 4 features a bold and intuitive new interface. Modern and easy to use, the platform utilizes HTML5 to provide an array of rich features. Our powerful new framework makes the user experience simpler and more robust, giving users maximum control of their data and decisions.

The optimized workflow allows users to find and visualize data points quickly based on a powerful tagging system. New features include a built-in search function, customizable charting and visualization, role-based security, real-time troubleshooting and rapid navigation. Niagara 4’s use of HTML5 provides a user interface that makes it easier for systems integrators to create and maintain customized views for end users.

More Data at Your Fingertips

Integrators can provide an interface that empowers users to do more on their own. Because devices, systems and data points can be tagged in Niagara 4, users can easily conduct a station-wide search of the most important elements in their operation.

This one-tool solution utilizes tag hierarchies to automatically integrate all data in a navigation tree. Using a standardized dictionary of tagged elements, users choose which points to monitor directly. With a simple point-and-click or drag-and-drop, users can create customized charts, allowing them to instantly find and display critical information from their desktop, tablet or mobile device.

Improved Security

Niagara 4 takes a “defense-in-depth” approach to Internet of Things security. Building on the security of previous Niagara versions, Niagara 4 is secure by default. Authentication requires users to choose strong credentials, and both data in motion and sensitive data at rest are encrypted. Niagara 4 also uses Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), making user permissions easy to configure and less error-prone.

Niagara 4 also can be integrated with existing enterprise identity and access management systems, such as LDAP and Kerberos. All user actions and security-related events are recorded in Niagara’s audit log for traceability.

Faster, More Powerful Development

Developers will find improved documentation, a rich open API library, BajaScript 2.0, semantic data modeling via tags and other ready-made tools to greatly speed and support development. In addition, the need for specialized training in the Niagara user interface is reduced—anyone familiar with open Web development can now create a custom UI in Niagara.

Niagara 4’s new features and public APIs make it easier to extend, develop and build upon the framework.

Easy Conversion

Tridium has put a great amount of effort into providing a seamless transition process for customers migrating from Niagara AX to Niagara 4. Our native Niagara Fox protocol will work between the Niagara AX and Niagara 4 software systems, and the Niagara 4 software will work with any currently available JACE controller.

For those making the conversion to our most up-to-date products, Tridium offers a station conversion tool that will adapt Niagara AX stations to Niagara 4 stations.
