Share this post:

This past March, Computrols participated in the National Facilities Management & Technology (NFMT) Conference/Exposition as both an exhibitor and a speaker. The conference included 125 comprehensive conference sessions along with an extensive trade show floor featuring over 600 vendors offering anything and everything related to facility management.

Computrols Demo KitComputrols’ Bob Hand, Drew Mire, and Scott Holstein manned the trade show booth, showing off Computrols new expo kit. The kit provided attendees with a quick look into the simplicity and in-depth analytics highlighted in Computrols Building Automation Software (CBAS). The mini-system included an 8X Controller, a thermostat, a temperature/humidity sensor, variable speed fan and actuator.

The team also brought a little bit of New Orleans flair to the booth, giving out Computrols Mardi Gras beads. The beads were a big hit amongst attendees and could be found dangling from the necks of those in the Mardi Gras spirit.

D.C. Branch Manager, Bob Hand, said, “I think this was a really productive trade show for us between the new opportunities generated and the visibility it gave us to current and prospective customers.”

Technology Trends in Building Automation

Drew Mire at NFMTThe highlight of the trip was Drew Mire’s (CEO) presentation on Technology Trends Impacting Building Automation Systems in Commercial Real-Estate. Mire presented to a group of about 60 facility management professionals, covering technology trends such as machine learning, wireless communication, and connectivity.
