Site-Command AnyConnect Provides Retailers with Enterprise Visibility and Control, Leveraging Legacy Energy Management System Investments to Reduce Energy Costs and Improve Operational Efficiency

AUSTIN, Texas – May 20, 2010 – Site Controls, the nation’s leading provider of enterprise energy management and above-site facilities intelligence solutions, announced the release of AnyConnect™, a solution to extend the functional life and enhance the return on investment of legacy Energy Management Systems (EMS). AnyConnect allows chain operators, facing discontinued support or functional obsolescence, to preserve existing investments in EMS, while generating immediate energy savings through advanced dashboards, Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) and sophisticated analytics.

AnyConnect provides unprecedented enterprise visibility through the integration of legacy EMS equipment to the Site-Command Data Center. Site Controls links its market-leading visibility-and-intelligence platform over public and private networks to virtually any device, sensor or controller, allowing building owner/operators to monitor and control real-time energy consumption and operational metrics from lighting, HVAC, signage, rooftop solar, on-site wind turbines, refrigeration and other devices throughout the Site Controls’ network of locations. AnyConnect is interoperable with all building automation systems and all major enterprise computing standards.

AnyConnect enables chain operators to generate revenue through participation in utility-sponsored peak-load management programs, such as demand response or time-of-use pricing. With industry-leading SmartADR™ Automated Demand Response technology, AnyConnect ensures low consequence load shed by taking into account site conditions, equipment performance and pre-defined business rules.

Site Controls manages energy and asset performance metrics across thousands of locations and over 300,000 end points, providing chain store customers sustained cost savings of 15–30%. AnyConnect extends the useful life of the EMS installed base, while offering additional value-added capabilities such as:

· Connectivity to the Site-Command Data Center for enterprise visibility
· Compatibility with all building automation standards
· Intelligent Demand Control Ventilation (iDCV)
· SmartADR load response

"Over the past year, we’ve worked with numerous chain stores to gain insight into an increasingly critical challenge – how to maximize the value of their existing installed base of EMS and manage those units most efficiently,” said Dan Kubala, Vice President of Marketing for Site Controls. “We are excited to offer a low-cost solution which extends the useful life of their systems while delivering immediate energy savings and enhanced capabilities.”

Site-Command is offered as a cloud-based service, avoiding the substantial IT deployment, administrative and maintenance costs required with proprietary on-premise software packages. More importantly, with solutions such as the Site-Command Energy Dashboard™, Exceptions Dashboard™ and AnalyticEngine™, information from legacy EMS units is presented to energy and facilities professionals in an intuitive, easy-to-use manner, enabling users to focus on high-priority issues without being overwhelmed by meaningless streams of alarm data.
