Building automation: American Auto-Matrix
American Auto-Matrix has releases the latest installment of its web-enabled building automation and energy control solution called AspectFT. AspectFT v2.0 was designed to make building automation simple for facility managers, integrating building control with everyday technology such as Twitter®, RSS, email, Google Calendar™, Microsoft® Outlook® and Apple® iCAL®. With version 2.0, American Auto-Matrix has incorporated HTML5 into the system. HTML5 allows users to access and alter information from the most popular web-enabled devices, with no additional plug-ins or engineering time. Tablets and smart phones from Apple® and Android™ can be used to view and add information such as trends and setpoints on the go. The company claims this advanced engineering allows facility managers even more flexibility when it comes to energy control and monitoring.
