Buildings produce massive amounts of data from their heating, cooling, lighting systems. By using the building data to take action, a building owner can use their facility as a stronger asset, further tying its contribution to the bottom line.
Connected buildings have potential. By integrating systems, clients can save time and money while improving the environment for building occupants. Connected buildings give owners and operators the option to simplify. Integration provides better control of facilities which can yield a more energy-efficient building.
As owners and managers are continually asking to do more with less, an integrated building allows for supplementation from experts to support their buildings and their business mission. From remote monitoring to online support, connected systems allow an efficient partnership. Brady is an expert at systems integration helping clients merge existing systems with newer technology.
Quality energy-efficient equipment can work together to make an efficient system that can be monitored and used to predict future energy usage. Optimizing system performance with the use of proactive maintenance and diagnostic reporting can be the result of an integrated system.
Electrical retrofits allow owners to upgrade to more efficient technologies. Integrating the lighting system with the building automation system opens the door to automation schedules that reduce energy spend. Better lighting environments improve occupant comfort and productivity.
Integrating a security system into the building automation system can improve safety and security, lower operational costs, maximize the efforts of onsite resources, and improve building occupant satisfaction. An integrated system provides more leverage for building owners and ultimately more value for the security solution.
Automation & Controls
Integrating a building automation system with the rest of the building systems or across a campus environment allows an organization to truly monitor and optimize their systems. Building Automation and Control Systems are seen as the backbone of any system integration.

Efficiency and Sustainability
Like most building owners, you’ve seen your operational costs increase steadily through the years. Certainly, some of this increase is due to rising utility rates. But consider this: As your building systems age, they become less efficient, less reliable, and more costly to maintain. It’s been years since the start-up and commissioning of your HVAC and Building Automation Systems if it was ever done at all. Your HVAC system is less reliable and efficient than when it was new. Your lighting system may be antiquated, and off time is dependent on the last person to leave flicking the switch.
Discover opportunities for improving your infrastructure that will pay for themselves, improve cash flow, create value, increase comfort, and provide real-time info for asset management to act upon.
The mission of our energy services group is to help owners maximize energy resources by providing a complete suite of cost-effective, integrated energy solutions that achieve significant cost savings.
Brady’s Energy Services team focuses on your building so that you can focus on your business.
The process begins with a preliminary survey and analysis of your building’s utility consumption and mechanical, electrical, and control and automation systems. Brady’s experienced team can assess facility investment opportunities and screen against meet investment payback hurdles.
Systems must be maintained or the value of the upgrades can quickly erode. Regular preventative maintenance combined with enhanced data analytics and performance reporting can help you understand how your building is performing at any time.
Brady’s experience delivering efficiency measures is unmatched and typically includes HVAC retrofit projects, lighting and lighting control upgrades, open protocol building automation systems, commissioning services, building analytics, utility optimization, plumbing upgrades, building envelope improvements, and renewable energy systems.
