Building Analytics

What are building analytics?

Building analytics are data analytics gleaned from smart building technologies such as networked sensors, building management systems (BMSs), integrated workplace management systems (IWMSs) and internet of things (IoT) edge devices. These technologies continually provide facility owners and managers with valuable data about the condition and performance of building infrastructure systems.

What are the business benefits of building analytics?

By reviewing and analyzing data retrieved from smart building technologies, smart building analytics can help manage a facility’s systems—heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), lighting, plumbing and security/access—during and after the pandemic. In addition, building analytics can help businesses:

  • Benchmark, assess and compare the performance of facilities.
  • Accurately forecast and budget utility consumption expenses.
  • Intelligently correlate parameters to investigate and explain events and incidents.
  • Strike the right balance between performance indicators without sacrificing one for another (e.g., occupant comfort vs. energy efficiency).
  • Perform predictive maintenance to help avoid unexpected equipment failures. 
  • Use analytics scores to gain quick insights on facility performance.
