Automated Logic releases new energy conservation monitoring app

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Automated Logic Corporation (ALC), a leading provider of innovative building automation systems that maximize energy efficiency while ensuring occupant comfort, announced the release of Eco-Screen, an interactive software application that showcases energy and conservation measures within a building. This application seamlessly integrates with the WebCTRL building automation system and metering devices to monitor energy data, and then displays the information on a large touch-screen monitor in a lobby or shared area of a building. Automated Logic is part of UTC Building & Industrial Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

“Eco-Screen provides building owners with an ideal platform to share their sustainability and environmental stewardship initiatives, and engage with building occupants,” said John Mandyck, chief sustainability officer, UTC Building & Industrial Systems.

The software integrates to an existing WebCTRL building automation system, which eliminates the need for the costly cloud-based fees and third-party involvement that other products require.

“Our customers retain full control of their data, and can easily update information as needed to keep information current and relevant,” said Mead Rusert, president, Automated Logic. “This key feature along with the advanced quality of the animations and graphics is what sets Eco-Screen apart from other products in the market.”

The Eco-Screen application is displayed through an interactive touch screen presentation that allows visitors to drill down and view the unique energy saving features within the building, including energy and water usage, carbon dioxide emissions, outdoor air conditions and more. It provides historical data for energy consumption and outdoor air temperatures by hour, day, week, month or year and is capable of featuring historical highs and lows, total precipitation and weather trends. The Eco-Screen application compares a building’s energy savings data with a conventional, non-efficient building using real-time measurement gauges and graphs, and it builds awareness of LEED certification, ENERGY STAR criteria.

The web-based version of Eco-Screen application also gives users the ability to view the data from multiple web browsers.
