Address product development challenges.

Building managers looking to gain additional value from existing BMS today face a daunting task. Many buildings with existing water, power and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are currently monitored through manual data collection or a complex series of siloed systems that don’t share data or allow for a master view of all building systems.


Our building management solutions are designed to encourage interconnectivity of new and legacy BMS—working across protocols such as BacNet, Modbus, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and more so building managers can aggregate data for more unified data management and analysis.
