An EDE (Engineering Data Exchange) file is required for integration into a building automation system via BACnet/IP. The EDE file contains all BACnet objects of Geberit Gateway and the assigned end devices, which are grouped by zone. The EDE file is generated after commissioning and can be downloaded in CSV format via the Geberit Control app and Geberit Gateway. ​

The following tables show an overview of the available BACnet objects for each end device that are available in the EDE file. More detailed descriptions complete with object names, type and instance can be found in thesystem manual.
