Smart buildings are connected
Monitoring lets us understand if systems are operating as designed and equips us with the information to solve persistent issues. Controls ensure that systems can adapt to varying conditions and needs.
Track and trend the key performance indicators (KPIs) that matters to you, prioritize operational issues, and better direct and empower on site staff to achieve your goals.
Adjust systems remotely and locally, coordinate schedules and data points across multiple systems and buildings, and automate processes to respond to real-time needs and reduce staff workload.
- Temperature sensors and controls to optimize heating and cooling performance and enhance tenant experience
- Leak detection to alert operators before puddles in tenant spaces turn into $100,000 headaches
- Automated demand response to “dim” buildings in response to grid needs without impacting comfort
- Power monitoring to proactively identify faults and extend equipment life
- Meters to reduce waste and allocate water and energy costs to tenants
When installing new equipment, systems, or controls in a building it is important to think about how these systems may need to communicate together in the short- and long-term as technologies evolve. To maximize communication flexibility, new products should all natively support industry standard communication protocols. Communication protocols are the language devices use to send and receive data in the same format. If multiple systems within your building use different protocols, they can’t easily communicate or report data back to you in a streamlined way.
Having devices that all support standard protocols means that when you are ready to integrate new systems, you have a sufficient foundation for equipment to freely communicate without the need for costly licensing fees or additional devices to translate one language to another.
- Cloud based dashboards to allow data from different building systems to be intuitively understood in one view
- Flexible network that allows for changes in tenants, equipment, and priorities
- Integrate with existing systems and scale over time
At Claridge House II, smart monitoring and controls reduce heating energy use by 20%
At 1560 Broadway and 515 Madison Avenue, smart controls reduce electric demand by 100 kW
A Minimum Standard of Care (MSOC) for building automation upgrades assures customers that products meet a minimum set of industry-approved standards.
