Platform for university campuses launched
Aircuity has announced the launch of its 2.0 platform. Aircuity 2.0 is well suited for higher education institutions looking to significantly reduce energy costs, provide healthier indoor environments for faculty, staff and students, gain insight into lab occupant behaviour, and achieve quantifiable results as part of a campus sustainability strategy.
Aircuity 2.0 includes the brand new MyAircuity web and desktop apps that, out-of-the-box, deliver actionable insights, transparency, and accountability to building owners and facility managers implementing demand control ventilation - one of the highest total return on investment energy conservation measures available.
- The MyAircuity web app was designed with users’ input and moves beyond simple data trends to deliver deeper analytics of cost and energy savings, indoor environmental quality responses, and occupant behaviours. The redesigned user interface presents the highest priority information for each stakeholder, on demand or delivered to their inbox or mobile device.
- The MyAircuity desktop app embeds the company’s two decades of experience and deep understanding of the complexity and life cycle of airside projects. From concept through design to start-up and turn-over, the engineering toolset ensures high quality, properly integrated and cyber-secure implementations.
Aircuity 2.0 also includes physical system upgrades. Among other initiatives, Aircuity made a significant investment to enhance the intelligence of its devices so the system can better 'watch itself' and has migrated its data centre to Microsoft Azure. The result is increased availability, reliability, and security, which in turn increases the return on investment for Aircuity’s customers.
Aircuity will be working with customers to migrate its entire portfolio to the new platform. More than 700 installations in 17 countries will benefit from the new features. Aircuity 2.0 was designed with this migration in mind, so the process takes as little as 30 minutes per system.
The system is implemented in more than 200 of the most advanced higher education and laboratory facilities in the world, including Michigan State University, University of California, Irvine and Northwestern University. Aircuity 2.0 further distinguishes Aircuity as the most robust, efficient, and verifiable airside solution available while laying the foundation for future development that will make Aircuity THE smart air platform.
