Improve facility performance and reduce energy consumption with real-time data on equipment performance and IoT-enabled facility automation.
More Affordable Energy Management Solutions
Many businesses with a large number of distributed facilities fid it challenging to manage critical operational costs, including energy, maintenance, and capital spending. Unlike large buildings with a ded...icated team to manage operations, multisite operators often rely on limited corporate facilities staff with insufficient remote management capabilities and limited ability to effectively control and track performance. This is especially true for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.
Although these issues can be addressed with traditional building automation systems (BAS), their high cost has historically been difficult to justify for small- to medium-sized buildings. The good news is building management solutions are becoming more affordable, thanks to the Internet of Things (IoT). Now it is easy and economical to automate facilities in pursuit of more efficient operations
For multisite operators who would like to implement an IoT-based energy management program, Intel and EnTouch Controls outline key steps that are common across national chains, schools, commercial property operators, and other portfolios with relatively small buildings. (v.1, May 2016)
