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.

That's why we designed the 75F system specifically with facility managers in mind. We wanted a system with a dashboard view of building performance that could change the way you interact with buildings and reduce the time you spend driving and checking facilities every week. Our reporting tools provide insight into energy anomalies that would previously go un-detected – putting out fires before they begin. Quarterly health check-ins make it easy to coordinate with mechanical contractors, as well.

Every office knows the afternoon slump. Employee eyes glaze over as they find themselves stuck reading the same line of an email. A yawn spreads contagiously around the room. A small crowd gathers around the snack table. If your office had a nap room, you know it would be full.

Maybe it's just fatigue – but it's likely to be something more, especially in an older building. Commercial buildings are notorious for trapping CO2 and VOCs, which can cause lethargy, headaches, nausea, flu-like symptoms and reduced cognitive abilities. In a room full of people, these compounds build up throughout the day, causing the dreaded afternoon slump. Learn how you can use your commercial building to combat them!

So what can you do about it?

Although a company curfew and extra caffeinated coffee could be the solution for a few, it may not solve the overarching issue. Why?
