3 steps to smart building services
CANDI supports all three steps to acquire, analyze, and act—including unique two-way communication capabilities for remote control and management of building systems. This gives you a substantial competitive advantage to offer your customers in addition to your analytics and business intelligence services.
1. Acquire data simply and cost-effectively
You no longer need to develop or deploy your own on-the-ground infrastructure and communications software to access the building data that feeds your analytics and business intelligence systems. Provisioning customer sites and devices with CANDI is fast and easy, with no need for expensive hardware, costly licenses, or lengthy programming.
2. Analyze and open up new market opportunities
CANDI opens up new market opportunities for smart building analytics providers. Data is easy for you to ingest, analyze, and present via our open REST/JSON-based API and our existing connections to popular services such as Microsoft Azure IoT Hub. You choose exactly which data you consume, at what frequency, and how to analyze it in conjunction with other data and trend lines such as utility bills, real-time pricing signals, industry averages, weather, and occupancy.
Your application now has full access to the data you need to optimize on-site subsystems for energy savings, operational efficiencies, and other smart building benefits.
3. Act on building data with remote and edge-based controls
With CANDI, your customers finally have a full range of control across their smart building devices, both remotely and at the edge. The CANDI PowerTools application supports automatic rules-based actions as well as manual control of IoT devices and building systems.
For service providers and systems integrators, our open IoT API exposes that control capability to let you quickly launch your own branded, user-friendly apps or web portals so that building managers can securely access, monitor, and control building systems from mobile devices or web portals. Building management capabilities—such as remote and rules-based HVAC and lighting control—in buildings that lack building management systems can now be achieved at a fraction of the cost and time to implement traditional systems.
