Optergy creates an
Open Information System to connect, manage data, target waste and improve operations

Helping contractors and building owners to create a smart workplace

OPEN INFORMATION SYSTEM

The Optergy Difference

Our Optergy platform is an Open Information System, meaning it freely connects to multiple systems and building equipment to create a custom overview of the building environment which can be accessed anytime, anywhere via one user-friendly platform.

How can Optergy benefit you?

Open Information System

Connectivity

The heart of an open information system is the element of connectivity. The multiple systems encompassing people and equipment must be brought together to create an overall view of the building environment and the customer’s objectives.

End-User Benefits

Buying technology has risks of obsolescence. Considering building mechanical equipment is expected to operate for 15-20 years before replacement. A good BMS/EMS system needs to be upgradeable throughout this period without replacing the hardware. The BMS/EMS must also transcend computer technology without losing historical data that adds context to current operation.

Optergy provides free updates and a migration path for each generation of technology.

Contractors Benefits

Internet connectivity done securely, allows contractors to quickly connect to the system to diagnose problems, make updates, or deploy new features. This means less travel to site and less disruption for the end user.

Data History

Historical data is used many ways for the daily operations of building systems. It also provides a record of central building energy and tenant usage. An on-premise system that is well managed can provide years of storage and quick recall when reports are needed. Having a secure on-premise database also keeps the customer data where it belongs, with the customer.

End-User Benefits

Seeing the data makes interpreting it easier and less time consuming for users. Adding context to visuals further increases the comprehension of the dataset provided.

Contractor Benefits

Automated archiving is helpful to reduce the load on the database and to safeguard long-term data storage. Adding automation to the mix means the user does not have to manually run archives as the system will handle these routine maintenance tasks.

Applications

Connecting systems together is the first part to getting the best out of building automation system. It is applications that drive the value, as data is more easily turned into information that users can process. Relevant applications require less work from users and put the system to use straight away.

End-User Benefits

In some buildings, energy costs can be recovered from tenants that pay for their own utilities or pay for after hours services.

Contractors Benefits

Contractors looking to differentiate their offering can draw on a variety of applications that add value for the customer and are quick to deploy with predictable costs. Service contracts can include optimization, energy efficiency, carbon reduction or regulation compliance strategies based around these applications.

Legacy System

Most buildings have many legacy systems related to building operations. These systems may operate in a stand-alone manner or connected to a building ecosystem. To achieve the most efficient outcomes, there is a benefit to integrating the systems and using common applications to derive maximum performance.

End-User Benefits

Automation means it’s automatic, sounds simple enough. When you see the problems quickly the answers become obvious.

Contractor Benefits

Remote connectivity coupled with security, makes the contractor more effective at servicing/maintaining the system. Having built-in tools and reports put the right information at their fingertips.

Operation KPIs

KPIs (Key Performance Indexes) are important to the business objectives because they keep the objectives at the forefront of decision making. It’s essential that building objectives are well communicated to key stakeholders. When people are aware and are responsible for their KPIs, it ensures that the enterprise’s high-level goals are always apparent.

End-User Benefits

Many regions now support energy or carbon compliance standards. A thoughtful presentation of Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ), energy usage and carbon accumulation may be needed to prepare reports for compliance to local standards. An open system with easy reporting can bring all the relevant information to the forefront for easy submission.

Contractors Benefits

Reporting that is tailored for the system, thresholds and comparison data make troubleshooting, maintaining, and optimizing the system easy. Automatic means they can be received by email with a desired interval with just the right content and timing

API Integration

Application Program Interfaces (API’s) have changed the way users interact between different platforms; by giving the users specialized functionality without having to develop the functionality themselves. API’s bring connectivity that simplifies complicated legacy protocols while adding new connectivity and improving security.

End User Benefits

Software connectivity is also part of the landscape of modern buildings. Often data is needed to present information or used by other systems to bring in a data set for use in other high functioning applications.

Contractor Benefits

Most contractors would like to increase their scope of work. However, with finite contracts in new construction, this means they need to drive service, optimization and energy services. It helps to become a solution service provider armed with tools that will help make this transition simple.
