Since the early ’80s, building automation technology (BAS) have played an integral role in engineers’ ability to aid facility owners and operators in achieving operational efficiency, dependable comfort, and lower energy costs. However, despite significant capital investments, often times the full potential of these systems is not realized, resulting in less than optimal building performance. Enter the emergence of the latest technological trend in the industry: building analytics.
The integration of a building analytics platform alongside a BAS provides a powerful combination of technologies that helps customers fully leverage the capital investment they have already made into their BAS. Furthermore, it provides a window into opportunities for facility improvement measures that enable further optimization of a building’s performance.
