Auto binding of templates into exiting systems
Patent No. 10,345,783
A control system having packaged sets of control logic, referred to as templates. A template may be deployed in a system many times to solve a system’s needs. Upon deployment, the user may need to perform many binding operations. The present system and approach may greatly reduce the labor involved in deploying control templates and in templates configuring a system of devices. Semantic tagging may be used. When designing a template, binding hints may be provided for each entity in the template that requires binding upon deployment. The binding hints may be used as a search predicate. When a template is deployed into a control space, a search query with binding hints for each bindable entity defined, may automatically be executed against the control space. If there is a single result for a bindable entity, then it may be automatically bound. If there are multiple results, a user may be prompted to choose from a results list.
