Every event deserves a comfortable environment. But how much energy is your campus or building wasting by heating and cooling empty rooms? How much money would you save running HVAC only in rooms that are being used?

By Tonya Russell on 4/26/2012 12:45 PM

Why do so many buildings with automation systems run HVAC and lighting in empty rooms? Because facility managers often can't keep up with all the schedule changes required to schedule HVAC and lighting at the room level, so they schedule it for entire buildings instead. The missing link here is an integration between room scheduling software and the building automation system.

With dumb scheduling there is no communication between schedules set by event planners and the building automation system. Smart scheduling pulls data directly from event scheduling software used by event planners, and automatically sends commands to building automation systems and HVAC equipment in each individual room, saving energy and labor. Which is better for your facility?
