Building Analytics Comparison Guide 

We have reached a rare industry-wide consensus on the importance of proactive maintenance. But how do you actually stop spending a majority of time putting out "fires" or sifting through false alarms? In this guide, we help you understand the building analytics software tools that will help you move from simply monitoring BMS alarms (messy!), to fault detection, to—ultimately—the promised land of fault detection AND diagnostics.


An in-depth guide to transformational fault detection & diagnostics (FDD)

The Building Analytics Comparison Guide is used by industry-leading facility teams and service provider organizations to make the jump from simply monitoring BAS alarms to truly optimized buildings and proactive staff. There are actually two kinds of FDD software: those that stop at the first “D” (Detection) and those that go all the way to Diagnostics.

This guide tells the story of the second "D" and why it's so important.
