Thankfully, with the introduction of the Internet of Things (IoT), you can improve the air in your commercial real estate buildings with 75F building automation solutions, all while cutting your HVAC costs by 30-50% and receiving a return on your investment in as little as a year! Match the cut in operational expenses and increase in property value with improved air quality management (and a great occupant experience) and you have a smart building that works for you and your tenants, not the other way around!
This year was 75F's first trip to the League of Minnesota Cities Conference. And, the City of Saint Cloud and the League of Minnesota Cities did not disappoint! Attendees were excited, exhibitors were at the ready with impressive booth displays, and the decor sent you up north with a cozy, cabin feel. What else could you ask for from a Minnesota-centric conference?!
As the conference began, attendees settled in with a pre-conference workshop and dove right into the juicy (lucy) training all had traveled far and wide to attend. The 75F team began with the City Sustainability Meet-Up in the Alexander Room.
The 75F® Smart Node™ terminal equipment controller enables flexible building automation with software-defined benefits. The Smart Node™ is a first-of-its-kind product design combining onboard OLED display, eleven I/O interface ports, daisy-chained 24V power, wireless-mesh networking, and software-defined hardware capabilities. The Smart Node is part of 75F’s vertically-integrated suite of smart building products for HVAC and lighting automation, delivering energy-efficiency, indoor air quality and healthy, comfortable indoor environments.
We've been very busy, and having a bit of fun along the way, building out the expanded 75F Solutions Portfolio.

Building pressure affects guest comfort, utility costs and equipment life. You likely have a pressurization problem in your restaurant if:
- You have experienced unwanted odors or smoke creeping from your kitchen into the dining area
- Your guests have found the doors to your restaurant difficult to open
- Doors don't seem to close all the way on their own
- Maintaining room temperatures in your building is difficult
While these may seem like minor issues, the costs of discomfort, energy loss and shorter equipment life add up.
