User-Friendly Building Automation Controls for Facility Managers

By Sarah Baker on May 9, 2019 11:12:53 AM

As a facility manager, your job is to keep your buildings operating smoothly. In reality, that can feel like a game of whack-a-mole (while a fire alarm is going off, and the basement is flooding). There's only so much you can get done in a day – and when it comes to making upgrades, the last thing you want is another piece of equipment to keep an eye on.
