Redmond, WA (August 31, 2011)—Building automation pioneer Alerton ( today launched Alerton Building Suite 3, providing building owners with a solution that creates energy awareness of their LEED and other green initiatives for any building. The third major release of its flagship front-end software for building automation systems and energy management, Alerton Building Suite 3 combines Alerton’s proven Envision for BACtalk(R) and WEBtalk(TM) software as well as the engineering tools VisualLogic(R) and BACtalk Builder. The release includes enhancements to BACtalk Builder and VisualLogic, as well as improved reporting capabilities, a new software licensing platform and an optional energy dashboard with configuration tools.

“With a touchscreen or in kiosk mode, the Alerton Energy Dashboard draws a building owner, their tenants and visitors right to the heart of the building’s operations with its customizable, interactive displays,” said Phil Smith, product manager for Alerton Building Suite. “Building owners can quickly update and maintain the dashboard with only minimal instruction, and use it to support their efforts to increase energy efficiency, including providing up-to-the minute information about the building’s energy use and even raising awareness of a tenant’s own energy consumption and demand.”

Alerton Building Suite 3 combines the power of both Envision for BACtalk and WEBtalk, providing a comprehensive building management solution that is scalable to any application.

Building owners can define a variety of dashboard data to display, including information from as many as 50 buildings, with views of consumable resources such as electricity, gas, oil, water and more. Users may also configure the dashboard to show web-integrated weather and forecast data, green facts, building directory information, campus maps, real-time traffic, advertising and other facility-specific information.
