Environmental monitoring is a good addition to any energy management strategy.
By attaching sensors (wired and/or wireless) to the t-mac device, businesses can get a better understanding of the environmental conditions within their building and, by monitoring equipment performance, how equipment within the building is operating.
Monitoring internal and external temperature can provide an indication of whether cooling or heating is required, or whether it is running too hot/cold for the building. Observing lux levels can provide information on whether there is adequate natural light. Monitoring machine conditions can provide remote diagnostics of equipment performance – how and when it is running.
Environmental and machine monitoring tells a story as to how the building is operating and whether it is being used efficiently. It shows where inefficiencies lie, and also illustrates how to improve performance and implement controls – local controls, people controls and/or BMS controls.
