Events2HVACEvents2HVAC event automation software

Events2HVAC event automation software is the energy and labor saving bridge between your facility’s event or room reservation system and your Building Automation System (BAS).  In a traditional setup, these two systems operate independently, with manual interaction and coordination required between them. The event system contains information about the events that are scheduled, the rooms that are booked, and when things need to happen. While the BAS controls the environment, lighting, and security in the facility. One problem facilities face is coordinating the scheduled events with the facilities personnel to make sure the lights are on, the rooms are comfortable, and the necessary equipment is setup for an event. This is typically a manual process prone to mistakes. For a facility that is booking multiple rooms on an hourly or daily basis, keeping BAS schedules synchronized with event schedules can be a time-consuming job.  Because of the labor required to keep schedules synchronized, some facilities resort to turning systems on prior to the first event, and leaving everything running until the final event for the day. Energy is wasted because the facility is heating, cooling, or lighting empty rooms.

ModletThinkEco's Modlet

The modlet, (short for "modern outlet"), is an intelligent outlet that reduces energy waste by monitoring real-time equipment power consumption and creating an automated savings program. Did you know that many of your appliances use power even when you're not using them? That means your electricity bill keeps climbing while you sleep or are at work.  The modlet eliminates this wasteful energy use by automatically turning off power to your appliances when they are not needed, so you can effortlessly save on your electricity bill.  Simply plug the modlet into an existing electric outlet and plug your appliances into it. Then use your web browser to wirelessly monitor and manage your power consumption.The modlet brings energy efficiency to the decades-old electrical wall outlet so everyone can save money and energy.
