HVAC costs represent a large percentage of most campuses’ energy use and presents an opportunity for reducing their carbon footprint. Many facilities are already outfitted with building management systems and room reservation systems, but their data are siloed. SRT Labs provides a platform for integration of existing systems as well as additional sensors, automating updates to the HVAC settings based on reservations, detected occupancy, or a combination, with all internal logic built on your university’s current policies.
Logic-based automation tied to class schedules or occupancy sensors reduces staff time required to make adjustments by hand and minimizes complaints from users. Tying HVAC to occupancy can provide tailored comfort settings for individual spaces based on their usage, making sure everyone can do their best work.
Bridging the Digital-Physical Divide
Once the M1 Platform is deployed for HVAC optimization, you can layer in more hardware and software, allowing you to centralize, monitor, and analyze data from systems across your campus.
