Events2HVAC can now send 24 hours of exception schedules to a BACnet schedule object rather than sending occupied/unoccupied commands to a BACnet binary value object.
For those who have been eagerly waiting (and everyone else), we have good news: Events2HVAC can now pull schedules from Ad Astra!
Events2HVAC now supports wired and wireless thermostats from Bryant, Carrier, ecobee, Founten, Honeywell, Network Thermostats, and Pelican Wireless Systems.
Two new features of Events2HVAC (v.1.5 and higher) permit users to automate switching between Events2HVAC schedules and backup building schedules in case of lost communication from the server.
Would you like to keep HVAC equipment from cycling off when there is a short amount of time between events? Or schedule it to come on for the first scheduled event of the day and turn off after the last event of the day? You can do these things and more with EventsHVAC.
A new Events2HVAC device interface has been developed and tested for Pelican Wireless thermostats.
Are you using multiple room scheduling systems on your campus? No problem. Events2HVAC Professional can rule them all.
A new Events2HVAC feature allows users to return HVAC equipment to unoccupied settings a specific number of minutes before the end of each event to "coast" through the end and save energy. You can’t do that with occupancy sensors!
We asked our customers to tell us their primary goal in implementing Events2HVAC, how well the software helped them achieve that goal, and which features we should add to help them achieve greater success. Check out their responses for a peek into the future!
Facility managers everywhere are looking for ways to cut expenses. Some of them are considering using occupancy sensors to turn off heat, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) in empty rooms. But there is a more effective and less expensive solution - one born of the KISS principle.
Potential customers often ask who is using Events2HVAC. Here is a “snapshot” describing Events2HVAC users as of September 2014. Would your campus or organization benefit from event automation too?
You can now use Events2HVAC to automatically schedule heating, cooling, lighting, and security in rooms scheduled with Microsoft Exchange or Office365. With an impressive return on investment and a minimum license of just 10 rooms, even small office buildings can now benefit from the energy and labor savings of event automation.
Every event deserves a comfortable environment. But how much energy is your campus or building wasting by heating and cooling empty rooms? How much money would you save running HVAC only in rooms that are being used?
At Streamside Solutions, we are on a mission to make Events2HVAC compatible with as many HVAC control systems and room reservation systems as possible. Recently, we helped Mission Community Church in Gilbert, AZ, integrate Dean Evans EMS Professional schedules with their Net/X Thermostats, automating HVAC control in 33 rooms. We also extended the number of Network Thermostat products that are compatible with Events2HVAC.
(formerly PeopleCube Resource Scheduler), a popular room scheduling software by Asure Software.
Why do so many buildings with automation systems run HVAC and lighting in empty rooms? Because facility managers often can't keep up with all the schedule changes required to schedule HVAC and lighting at the room level, so they schedule it for entire buildings instead. The missing link here is an integration between room scheduling software and the building automation system.
Jamie Schools, Executive Director of Administration at Legacy Christian Church in Overland Park, Kansas, uses Events2HVAC to save time and energy by automating HVAC based on individual room schedules. Schools oversees facilities, finance, safety and security, and human resources for all of three of Legacy’s campuses – and they are soon adding a fourth campus. For him, Events2HVAC is a blessing.
