Internet-connected devices offer sensing, actionable data insights, remote monitoring and automation to make buildings work smarter for the people who own, manage and occupy them...cutting costs and improving comfort, health and productivity. At first, the concept of deploying IoT in your building may seem like a complex, unreachable goal. However, it's more affordable and easier than ever!

You might be able to improve the efficiency of your HVAC system with a renovation and recommissioning, but then you're spending several times more money than you could spend on a smart HVAC retrofit. Additionally, you'll miss out on the benefits of improved system monitoring, scheduling, control and zone customization.

How Predictive Technologies Save You Money in Building Management

By Michael Moriarity on Aug 1, 2017 3:10:42 PM

You know you're about to read about the energy cost savings that can be achieved by implementing predictive technologies, but do you know they can also help to boost your top line revenue and operating margin? Consider the fact that more comfortable employees are more productive. More comfortable shoppers and diners tend to stay longer and spend more. Satisfied hotel guests tend to return and may spend more money at your lobby bar or restaurant.

Commercial tenants and consumers increasingly view LEED-certified / green buildings and sustainable business practices as positive differentiators for which they are willing to pay extra. More productive employees and happier customers are revenue positive. Higher wages, other employee/customer retention initiatives and new investments become more achievable as your margins grow, aided by reduced energy costs.

Now Is the Winter of Your Discontent, This Glorious Summer in the Office Thermostat War

By Michael Moriarity on Jul 25, 2017 11:02:36 AM

It never seems to end, does it? Half the year, the outdoor temperature is as pleasant as a frozen tundra (speaking for us Northerners). The other half of the year, we must defend ourselves from the onslaught of air conditioning so heavy we get goose bumps sitting at our desks or dining in public. How embarrassing! How revolting.

What's worse is that half the office (ahem, men) usually prefers the Arctic air stream all summer. However, at 6'0" and 150 lbs., I am often on the side of goose bumps. Now that the dog days of summer are upon us, we're fighting back!

Why Your Energy Management System Isn't Working

By Michael Moriarity on Jul 20, 2017 5:29:00 PM

When was the last time you performed a diagnostic check on your Energy Management System (EMS)? Have the complaints about heating, cooling or ventilation increased? Are they manageable? Can you see HVAC and lighting schedules and usage on one user-friendly dashboard?

Many buildings use EMS technology created in the 1990s or early 2000s. This limits building management and automation capabilities, exposes your business to avoidable cyber security risks, and frustrates building occupants. You don't have to deal with lackluster EMS performance when cost-effective, smarter solutions are available.

What Do Energy Management Systems Really Cost?

By Michael Moriarity on Jul 18, 2017 1:36:25 PM

The true cost of the energy management system (EMS) is far beyond its initial cost of installation. The present architecture of most EMS products available today was brought to market in the 1990s, and most U.S. buildings have not undergone significant EMS upgrades since 2005. This means technology invented before the first iPhone was released may be managing energy efficiency and consumption in your building while also exposing your business to cyber security risks and depressing the productivity of people in your building.
