The ConnectM Footprint Currently Covers Over 11,000,000 Square Feet of Buildings Worldwide
Solutions for Distributed Buildings
ConnectM's Internet of Things (IOT) solutions improve the operational efficiency of large and distributed buildings, while also increasing occupant comfort and health. Distributed building customers include retailers with many locations, Self-Storage REITs, financial institutions with many locations, telecommunications companies with many locations, and so on.
Centralized Monitoring & Management Solution
The Yantra-CENTRAL integrated solution is comprised of Internet of Things (IoT) gateways, sensors and actuators, together with intelligent software, that provides monitoring and control for small to large distributed buildings from a remote and central command center. Some of the capabilities offered as part of the Centralized Monitoring & Management Solution are:
Energy, water & fuel monitoring
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning optimization
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) management
Intelligent air movement to provide free cooling
Sensor-based lighting & HVAC control
Condition monitoring of assets like UPS, gensets, elevators, vending machines etc.,
Data center room temperature & energy efficiency monitoring
Automatic alerts and ticket management
Asset tagging (NFC/QRC) and proactive & preventive maintenance
Managed services by subject matter experts to manage & operate facilities
Artificial Intelligence (AI) driven insights & recommendations for optimizations
Smart AHU Optimization Solutions
The ConnectM Smart AHU solutions offer a wide variety of capabilities that allow for the optimization of the operations of AHU to ensure the achievement of comfort to occupants, reduce energy consumption, as well as meeting regulatory compliances by maintaining indoor air quality (IAQ) within HVAC zones.
These combined solutions can reduce energy consumption up to 30-40%.
ConnectM’s AHU optimization includes the below features:
Demand control ventilation ensures CO2 levels are maintained as per regulations
Smart zoning resolves hot/cold regions and improves indoor occupant comfort levels
Delta-T monitoring to ensure the efficiency of heat transfer within AHU
Intelligent & granular control of chilled water valve (CWV) reduces demand on chillers
EC fan integration that reduces energy and maintenance costs
Enthalpy (Free-Cooling) Solution
The ConnectM Enthalpy solution intelligently moves air to achieve its desired temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide levels. For instance, by taking advantage of outside weather conditions, it may be possible to utilize larger portions of outside air to more efficiently achieve the desired levels for both comfort and health, thereby also reducing energy consumption and improving indoor air quality. Additionally, it may be possible to control air movement between zones inside a building to provide a higher level of comfort to indoor occupants. By leveraging the intelligent movement of air to provide free cooling, the ConnectM Enthalpy solution has been shown to drive up to 20% savings on operational costs.
ConnectM’s Enthalpy solution offers a more comprehensive approach than adding an economizer to your HVAC system. It uses an intelligent controller to oversee the operation of the HVAC equipment and necessary dampers, taking into account readings from a network of temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide sensors. ConnectM offers a truly integrated approach to maximize the efficiency of operation of the HVAC system.
Data Center Temperature & Energy Efficiency Monitoring
ConnectM offers an effective way of monitoring and managing data center temperature and energy consumption. The benefit of this monitoring is to ensure there are no hot/cold areas and that there is no inefficient cooling in the data center or server rooms.
The solution also enables the monitoring of energy consumption from an IT and Non-IT load to derive Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) that helps to analyze data center energy efficiency and enable continuous improvement in reducing overall energy consumption.
Occupancy-Based Lighting & HVAC Control
The ConnectM occupancy-based Lighting & HVAC control solution uses a mix of occupancy sensors to optimize the control of lighting and HVAC systems, thereby controlling the heating and cooling based on actual occupancy of the space. By controlling the HVAC systems based on occupancy, you are able to optimize occupant comfort, while also driving operational cost savings. In fact, the ConnectM occupancy-based HVAC control solution has been shown to help commercial buildings drive up to 15-30% savings on their operational costs.
Fuel Inventory & Consumption Tracking for Large Campuses
ConnectM’s Integrated Diesel Tracking and Management solution helps large property owners that utilize thousands of gallons of fuel on a daily basis to get clear visibility of fuel inflow, stock levels and consumption details in real-time by using IoT sensors, gateways and intelligent software. The solution also helps plan procurement better and avoids waste, invariably bringing accountability across departments.
The solution digitizes entire activities typically followed by operations teams manually on a daily basis, rendering them completely paperless. This includes indents, receipts, reconciliation, reporting, alerting and many more business-related needs.
“Amdocs has always believed in innovation that yields results. ConnectM's Energy Management Solution has done exactly that by helping us save significant amount of energy in terms of HVAC and lighting by automating the whole facility (700,000 SqFT) based on occupancy. We are delighted to work with ConnectM as a team"
