The Airconnect Platform enables intelligent monitoring right down to the individual equipment level with our proprietary, easily deployed AircheK device.
This includes your HVAC plant and on-site energy generation systems such as solar PV and battery storage. AircheK gives you 24/7 visibility of equipment operating status, compliance, and live performance metrics. Intuitive visualisations with custom alerts are sent directly to nominated stakeholders as soon as issues arise, giving you visibility over equipment downtime and energy consumption.
By implementing the VBIS asset classification standard for tagging assets and related data hosted across disparate systems, Airconnect enables you to easily search, discover, compare, and report on your assets in real-time, including compliance status, maintenance history and remaining useful life. Alignment with the Queensland Government Data and Information Guideline, and Victorian Digital Asset Strategy is also enabled.
As a VBIS Enabled partner, Airconnect and our expert integration teams can do the hard work for you, digitising your assets and ensuring they are categorised correctly using the latest VBIS Tags and comprehensive asset classification system covering all asset types within the built environment.
Utilising advanced edge gateway devices, low-cost energy metering, and retrofit IoT sensors where required, equipment-level operational data is easily extracted from your assets in real-time and stored in the Airconnect secure cloud data platform along with historic data for comparative analysis and condition reporting.
By integrating Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS) features, including VBIS Enabled digitised asset registers, the Airconnect Platform provides practical insights by combining live operational data with equipment-level specifications, historic maintenance records and visual inspection data. This holistic data-driven approach enables powerful analytics and gives you detailed visibility of your equipment performance, condition rating, compliance and real-time alerts of underperforming assets.
Measuring and monitoring your equipment is essential to effectively manage energy use, costs, and productivity in your business. By making sure your building is energy efficient, you’re also doing your part in lowering greenhouse gas emissions towards net-zero.
As an authorised data recipient, Airconnect can request your smart meter interval data for energy and peak demand analysis, including bill checking and measuring a baseline of your sites. Sub-metering of individual systems and equipment is achieved using inexpensive energy meters connected to Airconnect’s secure cloud data platform.
Airconnect helps you understand how and when your equipment uses energy, giving you a baseline to track and report improvements, providing intuitive visualisations for easily identifying energy use, and cost saving opportunities including:
Using live web-enabled dashboards, key performance metrics and intuitive visualisations are available at the click of a button. Depending on your requirements, custom alerts and reporting can be setup and sent directly to relevant stakeholders, facilitating the automatic detection and notification of operational status, non-compliance issues and energy wastage as soon as they occur, thus helping to minimising equipment down time, reduce energy costs and support the longevity and reliability of your equipment over their useful lifetime.
Practical insights provided through the Airconnect Platform include:
Life-cycle costing is an important tool for system designers, owners, facility managers and financial planners.
Utilising integrated CMMS features, maintenance history, VBIS Enabled asset tagging and comparison of similar assets across a site or portfolio, Airconnect provides a centralised knowledge-base of lifecycle cost analysis metrics including energy costs, maintenance costs, replacement costs, condition rating and remaining useful life of systems and equipment based on the actual condition and health of your assets.
