The 75F® Smart Stat™ provides an integrated, in-room, wall-mounted user interface with 7 onboard sensors and thermostat zone controls for single and dual-stage HVAC equipment. The Smart Stat can control a range of equipment to support comfortable, healthy and efficient buildings. When the 75F Smart Stat is used to control a Heat Pump Unit, it operates very similarly to a typical thermostat with a few added benefits for a commercial environment. Here's why the Smart Stat works so well with Heat Pump Units:
Why is the Central Control Unit So Important?
Every 75F building implementation must have at least one Central Control Unit (CCU). The CCU is critical to the value of data aggregation and cloud computing that 75F provides. The CCU is the front-end of the system on-site, serving as a wireless gateway to the cloud. The CCU is a removable tablet with wireless communications. It replaces a standard thermostat and easily installs, connecting to low-voltage relay contacts that activate the equipment’s heating, cooling and fan signals. The CCU provides a primary user interface for building management including mobile pairing, configuration and settings, zone status, schedules, sensor input graphs and much more.
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!
"Data is King." That’s one phrase we have heard multiple times and when it comes to buildings, we agree that data and its analysis is of great importance. For Facility Managers, especially, building data is essential as it is a comprehensive way of understanding the functioning of the building and its weak spots. However, good data is also the most overlooked aspect in Building Management. While there are many advanced data collection systems that can provide facility managers with comprehensive data reports there are very few BMS systems that provide this data in an easy to understand format with actionable insights.
In this blog we look at why good data is important for efficient Building Management and how 75F's Building Intelligence System can provide you comprehensive data analytics and help you improve your building.
Larsen & Toubro Infotech (LTI) is a world leader in the IT industry with an annual revenue of over $1Bn. When they decided to take that extra step towards becoming energy efficient, LTI chose to partner with 75F to achieve this goal. Energy efficiency in LTI's large offices could greatly impact energy savings and result in a reduced carbon footprint. With over 25,000 employees, their strong commitment towards sustainability was backed by their efforts to provide a comfortable working environment for their employees.
Are you looking to improve your building or workspace by implementing the Internet of Things?
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!
