For those who have been eagerly waiting (and everyone else), we have good news: Events2HVAC can now pull schedules from Ad Astra!
Throughout the summer, Streamside Solutions has been working with Ad Astra, Johnson Controls, and Johnson County Community College in Kansas City, MO, to develop and test our new Ad Astra event provider. Thanks to all who helped with this project.
The Ad Astra event provider allows Events2HVAC to pull room schedules from Ad Astra v. 7.5.7 or higher, and send commands to compatible building automation systems, thermostats, and security systems to automatically control room conditions based on schedules. This permits energy savings of 20-40% over weekly building schedules by returning HVAC equipment to unoccupied settings between each event.
With event providers for 20 different room-scheduling systems, Events2HVAC is the industry leader in HVAC schedule integration. For a complete list of event providers and compatible scheduling systems see our Event Providers page.
The new Ad Astra event provider requires the following to function properly:
Events2HVAC connects to your Ad Astra account using a regular user account. This account needs access to your campus rooms and building definitions, as well as view calendar event permissions.
Events2HVAC does not write any data to the Ad Astra API.
For additional information on Events2HVAC and the Ad Astra event provider, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (888) 320-4277 ext. 1.
