Building Analytics

OpenData for Building Analytics

Modern building owners are looking for ways to improve efficiency, increase tenant comfort, and maintain the financial well being of your building.

Buildings are becoming more complex, with more interconnected devices and the massive amounts of data these devices generage. Building Management Systems (BMS) do a great job at providing metering dashboards and providing alerts when problems happen, but they may not be giving you the whole story.

The OpenData building analytics IoT platform  integrates into all of your existing IT and Operational building investments, and goes deeper into the data to find significant energy, efficiency, and operational savings, all while leveraging your existing investments.

Increase operational performance by understanding the entire data story of your smart building.

OpenData natively integrates into your existing IT systems and building management systems and begins monitoring instantly. We go deeper than a traditional BMS system by analyzing massive amounts of time-series data in real-time to provide areas of improvement and automation fault detection, so you are warned before issues and cost

Our deep level integration actively monitors, power, cooling, of both your IT and facility equipment, and warns you of any potential conflicts (e.g. temperature sensors are miscalculated not allowing proper cooling) that could have disastrous outcomes. And because we monitor all of your IT and building facility equipment our advanced machine learning algorithms can predict outages, cost savings, and faults before they happen.

Built-in Analytics

Canned reports and dashboards for Power metrics and KPI’s


OpenData is the industry’s only fully distributed monitoring solution for gathering real-time performance metrics from across a network of building and IT infrastructure. It offers alarming and event management capabilities across all operational and IT equipment in your smart building, all collected and analyzed at the edge.

OpenData gives you the early warning you need by providing an end-to-end power infrastructure monitoring system that actively polls every device (both IP-based & serial) contributing to your smart building ecosystem. The advantages of the Modius approach include Intelligent Alarms based on configurable computations. Rather than generate an overflow of low-level alerts, OpenData sends you only the alarms you need when they matter most.

Power Chain Mapping

OpenData Power Management provides the ability to build a virtual model of the power chain in your smart building. Every link in the chain, from the utility feed, to servers in the racks are modeled in software and optionally configured for real-time data collection of performance and power metrics. Once the power chain is configured and connected, it can be used to instantly identify load imbalances and locate failing power infrastructure.

Panel Management

OpenData Power Management provides the ability to build a virtual model of individual power panels in your power chain. The software supports panel definition and configuration for the number and arrangement of circuit breakers in the panel. Individual circuit breakers can be monitored for power and performance metrics to support “bill back” invoicing for energy usage and event handling for fault detection.

Fail-over Analysis

Once the Power Chain has been modeled, it can be used to assess fail-over conditions for any node in the chain and test redundancy strategies to insure that all downstream assets have adequate power to continue operation in the case of a failure. When PCM is used in conjunction with our Asset Management Module, this power data can be used to verify valid equipment connections, warn the operator of equipment changes that violate power capacity thresholds and report on assets and applications that would be affected by any power related failure.
