Larger organizations have their operations spread across the globe, and this adds to the facility management nightmare. Centralized premise monitoring has been around for some time now. Most businesses have deployed CCTV cameras at their premises to keep an eye on the incidents at their premise. But images do not really speak the story of energy consumption at the premise. You might see which equipments are working at a given time, but it doesn’t speak about their efficiency or consumption patterns.
With more and more companies leaning towards the ISO 14001, it becomes more critical for the facility management team to monitor the power consumption across their centres. Energy spent ( or consumed ) per employee is a key metric for this certification, and its more valuable if the EMS provides in-depth information – say energy spent on lighting per employee, or energy spent on HVAC per employee.

IoT enabled energy metering systems might get you the cumulative consumption remotely. It is as good as collating the meter readings taken during the day onto a spreadsheet. But, in order to get the complete analytics of the total consumption patterns down to the equipment-level, you may need a smarter solution – a solution that gives your in-depth analysis on your usage patterns, gives insights on potential changes for optimising energy usage and so on.
The next point to consider this solution is the ease of adopting this solution. Can I install it without disturbing the existing infrastructure ? Can I avoid using multiple sensors at each equipment ? Can I avoid a extensive cabling to connect all these hardware pieces ? If the answer to all the above questions are YES, then go ahead and deploy it. Greeniee is one such solution that allows you to monitor your premise, at an equipment-level, without having to deploy sensors at each of your equipment. Its state-of-the-art data analytics engine understands your usage patterns ( cumulative as well as equipment-wise ), compares it to your business operations and climatic conditions at the locality, and helps optimize the consumption by identifying those minor areas of power wastage.
Can I install it without disturbing the existing infrastructure ? Can I avoid using multiple sensors at each equipment ? These are typical questions that could arise in the mind of any buyer.
A small leakage or wastage would not just add to their operational expense, but also might put your operations in jeopardy. What if a critical equipment is faulty and has been showing signs of malfunction ? The facility team may or may not have notified it yet. If this critical equipment breaks down on a day, it could completely impact the business operations and the losses could be far more than what the power losses accumulate over couple of years. So you can close your eye on energy wastage, but it sure will open your eyes wide if you look at the losses due to a breakdown.
Greeniee is one such solution that allows you to monitor your premise, at an equipment-level, without having to deploy sensors at each of your equipment.
A system like Greeniee also helps the consumer get alerted about possible equipment malfunction, leading to predictive maintenance thereby avoiding “bad surprises” and related downtime. As the need of the day, the system delivers all this information and alerts on your smartphone application in addition to your email.
