With Sentient AwareNET™ proven in multi-family residential, hospitality, institutional and commercial office properties, a new world of possibilities is now open regarding capital improvement projects for the retrofit landscape. In the past, owners of older buildings would never consider significant upgrades to the controls and monitoring solutions at the occupant/zone level to allow for greater comfort and more efficient central plant operations due to the costly and disruptive attributes of maintaining the equipment and having to run a wired network throughout an entire building to connect up all the devices. Now with the emergence of thermostats powered by ambient light capable of controlling any heating or cooling terminal unit (baseboard electric heaters, fan coil units, PTAC, radiators, window AC units) , installs within apartments and offices are quick and simple. No power or communication wiring required. Once the wireless infrastructure is in place, adding new wireless sensors becomes as easy as mounting them in the locations they are needed and linking them to the network.
Sentient Matrex™ allows for the enhancement of current controls in the building bringing the monitoring and control of all equipment at both the central plant and occupant/zone level under a single platform accessible from any mobile device. Building operators receive actionable alerts via text/email on all systems and equipment throughout the property giving them the ability to pro-actively manage their site saving on maintenance costs and minimizing visits to occupant spaces to address comfort issues.
Building owners and Managers can achieve a new level of management and insight through the use of Sentient Building’s Solutions. Sentient Cortex™ provides a portfolio level dashboard view of your properties allowing for a bird’s eye view of building energy performance from a financial perspective highlighting dollars being saved with each control and monitoring measure being implemented. Cortex is a central platform for partners such as HVAC service and engineering companies to gain access to operational and equipment data to help better serve the property on an ongoing basis. If the building owner or management company is already utilizing another platform, this data can be pushed to the incumbent platform. The incumbent platform provider will have the ability to integrate with any module of the Sentient Cortex that they see fit to enhance their offering.
Designed to be utilized for both retrofit and new construction projects, make your building smart through the use of Sentient Building’s wireless sensor network technology. Once the network is in place, smart devices can be installed over time to satisfy budget schedules, amenity improvement initiatives or operating enhancement efforts virtually anywhere in the building and have direct connectivity to the cloud. This open up worlds of possibilities. Leak detectors can be placed at the exact spots where there is the greatest risk. Light switches can be added to locations without having to be wired creating highly flexible systems. Temperature sensors can be placed in the best location to sample zone temperature to maximize the delivery of comfort. It becomes as simple as mounting devices wherever they are needed.
