The AspectFT solution brings together multiple protocols and devices to a dedicated, centralized, or redundant location designated by the customer. From here collective data can be accessed, eliminating the need to visit each individual site.

Through a user interface custom designed by a trained AspectFT Engineer, all data provided in any number of buildings can be viewed in an almost infinite number of ways. All that is required is the use of a standard web browser such as, Google Chrome™, Firefox®, Opera™, Safari® , or Internet Explorer®. With the click of a button and the right security credentials, global aggregate building data can be monitored and mined, increasing efficiency and reducing energy consumption and cost.

AspectFT v2.0 and higher also utilizes HTML5, allowing you to obtain information including trends, setpoints and more from your Building Automation System on the fly. Once the project is created in AspectFT-Studio™ it can be viewed and altered from most popular web-enabled devices with no additional plug-ins or engineering time. With just a few extra steps, new points can be added, for fast and convenient data acquisition. It's Auto-Magic™. HTML5 is available for all AspectFT 2.0 solutions.

Schedule Without Compromise

Schedule Without Compromise

Schedule your building(s) through programs such as Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar, Apple iCal, and any of over 40 other programs that utilize the iCalendar protocol.

This means that if you schedule a room in your building for a meeting, a workday, or weekend occupancy, it can be done without the need to access a proprietary scheduling tool.

Don't worry, should your building lose internet connectivity, AspectFT will still maintain the last received schedule until connectivity is restored and new changes are made.

With AspectFT you can schedule a resource for a meeting in your corporate calendar and the building will automatically adjust for the occupancy of that zone. No need to worry about turning things on or off. Just plan your meeting and AspectFT will do the rest.

Information. Anytime. Anywhere.

Information Anytime Anywhere

AspectFT allows you to access your building information on the go through RSS feeds, Twitter and email. Through your phone, tablet, or laptop you can access pertinent information wherever you are.

With RSS feed technology you can receive a plethora of information including energy data directy to your email or smart device. Receive notifications on alarms or statuses of your building system on your smart phone. Have reports emailed to you at the end of the day in the comfort of your home.

These are just a few of the convenient ways that AspectFT brings information straight to you.

Through integration to common internet communication mediums, AspectFT can get important information to any level of user quickly. With services like Twitter, all someone needs to do is follow the building's tweets to get up-to-date information. This is as easy as texting to 40404 and "Follow" a specific building or zone.

Dependable Data Management

Store and retrieve all building data via MySQL® or other databases. This allows for data to be mined easily and effectively through familiar programs like Microsoft Excel® and SAP® Crystal Reports.

MySQL, Microsoft Excel, SAP

With advanced audit trail functionality, reports can be generated to not only show energy trends, but reasons for anomalies in the data as well as what user was responsible for any changes.

Dependable Data Management

Automation that thinks for you

Automation that thinks for you

Manage energy consumption with XPath®. Data from XML tables can be integrated to create more dedicated and automated control.

For example, weather services from sites like Yahoo!® Weather, and Weather.com can be utilized to manage building routines based on predicted weather patterns.

Services like Google Latitude™ can be used to let your building know when you have entered or left the proximity of a building and automatically adjust setpoints or manage lighting.

Weather data can be integrated into AspectFT and used to predict energy loads and building automation requirements. Unseasonal weather patterns can result in the building changing it's routines accordingly to ensure optimal comfort and energy usage.
