Walden Galleria Mall

OVERVIEW

With 1.6 million square feet of retail space and over 18 million visitors a year, the Walden Galleria is the largest and busiest mall in western New York. Each tenant — including JC Penney, Lord & Taylor, and Best Buy — relies heavily on the mall’s building automation system to attract and retain customers. TEC systems, contracted to integrate and synchronize the control of essential building services to ensure their smooth operation, installed a LonWorks-based open and interoperable network throughout the facility — the largest LonWorks installation in the United States. Syncing environmental monitoring, security and access systems, and fire safety safeguards on multiple LonPoint field controllers, the system also includes a remote diagnostic and repair component — maximizing patron attention and comfort.
