Aircuity Launches Building Management System

Air systems efficiency firm Aircuity has launched building management system Aircuity Advisor Services.

Advisor Services consists of a set of software-based tools designed to provide information on a building’s performance. The product features four components: ventilation summary reports, data visualization dashboards, smart notifications and graphing, and exporting.

The components can be used independently or interdependently. They aim to identify, prioritize, and address building performance issues, the company says.

Ventilation summary reports are sent on both a weekly and a monthly basis and are color coded to easily identify which monitored areas are out of normal operational range. Smart notifications are sent based on the persistence and pervasiveness of an event. “Real” events are determined based on the user’s definition of issues that need prompt attention, Aircuity says.

Advisor Services uses data supplied by Aircuity’s OptiNet efficiency system.

Texas Children’s Hospital announced that it had installed OptiNet in November last year. The installation helped the hospital’s Jan and Dan Duncan Neurological Research Institute building achieve silver-level LEED-certification and the Silver Building Team Award from Building Design & Construction magazine.

  1. Unfortunately this article’s headline is very misleading and inaccurate.
    Aircuity has released a product known as Advisor Services, which is a suite of software services that provides analytics about a facilities indoor environmental quality. It is NOT a BMS system.
    Aircuity solutions are a complimentary overlay to BMS systems for a wide variety of commercial facilities. In our product press release we attempted to compare the manner in which our information is displayed relative to a traditional BMS, and this sentence was misinterpreted in its literal and used out of context to justify the headline.
    If Environmental Leader knew more about Aircuity or our products they certainly would have not written this headline, a problem we would love to fix. I have invited the editors of Environmental Leader to receive a more complete briefing about our solutions and I have requested that they use our press releases in their entirety so as to avoid misunderstandings like this in the future.
    For those of you that would like to see the full Aircuity press release about Advisor Services I would encourage you to visit our website, http://www.aircuity.com.
    Sincerely,
    Chuck McKinney, VP Marketing, Aircuity

    • We wrote this headline in good faith because the press release provided (http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20120301006143/en/Aircuity-Announces-Introduction-Aircuity-Advisor%E2%84%A2-Services) appeared to describe a BMS, with phrases such as “set of software based tools designed to provide intelligent and actionable information into a building’s performance” and “Advisor Services sets itself apart from traditional BMS or energy management systems.”

      To suggest we wanted to “justify” a headline is ridiculous. We didn’t have any interest in writing that particular headline beyond the belief that it was an accurate representation of the news.

  2. Aircuity sincerely apologizes for any ambiguous language in our press release which may have led to this inaccurate story. When we contacted Environmental Leader to offer corrections we were instructed to post a comment, which we did. In no way did I intend to suggest that the Environmental Leader acted in bad faith; my primary concern was to correct the inaccuracies of the story.

    Sincerely,
    Chuck McKinney
    VP Marketing, Aircuity
