How does NANTUM work?
NANTUM unlocks, correlates, trends and analyzes data from disparate building systems, including BMS, utility & power quality meters, and security systems and combines this with data from external sources, such as weather, occupancy, and wifi data, to prescribe operational adjustments in real-time that improve building performance. Unlike other building optimization platforms on the market, NANTUM achieves its results by providing enhanced situational awareness to the operator, combined with building automation, using its proprietary analytics. Feature highlights:
Automated BMS Optimization via Occupancy:
NANTUM gathers real-time occupancy through a variety of supported sources (turnstiles, foot traffic sensors, WiFi/Bluetooth, network analytics, security, apps, etc), and optimizes BMS sequencing to deliver thermal comfort based on the heat load created by the live building headcount. Whether building-wide, floor-by-floor, or at a zone-by-zone level, NANTUM will use real-time occupancy data correlated with the building’s own thermal inertia to create automation within the BMS that will isolate HVAC delivery to only where and when it is needed.
NANTUM prescribes a 24-hour “lookahead” demand and consumption benchmark for all utilities (water, gas, steam, and electricity), based on the best past operational performance under similar weather, calendar and mechanical conditions. NANTUM’S demand benchmark provides the operator with a data-substantiated pathway for success and self-assessment throughout the day.
NANTUM publishes a calculated building startup, based on thermal inertia, forecasted weather, occupancy, and the length of time in which the building has reached lease temperature under similar conditions in the past. Operators can confidently start the building HVAC at the right moment to meet lease temperatures, while avoiding energy waste from overly conservative startups.
Continuous Trending & Visualizations:
NANTUM provides consistent, easy-to-read, trending and visualizations across the entire portfolio, regardless of different building system manufacturer. Portfolio managers, building managers and operators have access to key performance indicators at-a-glance, empowering course-correction before minor issues become serious problems.
Operational Drift Alerting:
NANTUM will text, email and alert operators and managers if it detects operational drift from “business as usual” on any of the metrics NANTUM captures, averting energy waste and providing an early warning system for mechanical failures.
