Benefits of connected buildings
Your building cannot function at optimum performance without HVAC system expertise and analytics to help you make sense of the data. The team at Brady continues to lead our industry, and we have been creating new tools to help building managers like you take advantage of all this technology.
CONNECT by Brady is made for clients that want to get the most out of their BAS. CONNECT by Brady helps you understand what is happening with your HVAC system. When system data is compiled, analyzed, and turned into insights it can visually demonstrate your building’s performance and point out areas of improvement. Instead of reacting to issues, you can stay ahead of many of them. A building utilizing Connect by Brady allows you to:
- Optimize energy costs
- Reduce downtime and on-site service visits
- Enhance comfort and productivity
- Improve system-wide decision making
Introducing CONNECT by Brady
CONNECT by Brady combines the speed and expertise you rely on from our skilled technician team with proven cloud-based services. Our team installs a small box which allows us to access the data from your Building Automation System. We can create customized diagnostics and alerts that go beyond the ability of your BAS to fit the needs of your building and your business. Installation of the CONNECT by Brady hardware takes less than an hour and can be scheduled during your next preventative maintenance visit.
In one sense, CONNECT by Brady is something we’ve been developing for over 55 years, long before building automation or SMART buildings were something anyone envisioned. CONNECT by Brady isn’t just cutting-edge technology, it comes with all the HVAC expertise we have cultivated over the years and our customers expect from us.
With CONNECT by Brady you will receive:
Remote technical support
Just like our service technicians, our virtual team is trained and ready to troubleshoot any issue that arises. Alarms can often be addressed remotely to reduce downtime and avoid an on-site service call. When an on-site service call is required, the dispatched technician is briefed by the virtual team, which reduces overall repair time.
Critical alarm routing
Our virtual services team works with each client to define the alarm responses required to support your facility operations. This ensures your staff is immediately informed about serious issues, and predefined actions are taken to reduce downtime and increase productivity.
Periodic inspection reports will be delivered on a schedule customized to meet your needs. You’ll spend less time digging through the data and more time using the insights to improve your building performance.
CONNECT by Brady gives you the insight you need into your building automation system to truly manage your facility with confidence. Many customers ask about the price for CONNECT by Brady. Since each building is unique, we have found that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t benefit our customers. The price of the CONNECT by Brady platform depends on a variety of factors related to your building’s size and number of systems, as well as the frequency of reporting and the level of critical alarm routing required.
CONNECT by Brady is now standard in our offering, so the price will be bundled into your service agreement with no upfront cost and represents just a fraction of your overall investment.
