[00:00:15.270] – Scott Holstein

Hi everybody Scott Holstein here with Computrols, welcome to our I/NET integration webinar.

[00:00:21.340]

For those of you who are familiar with I/NET, you know that I/NET has been around a very long time and most people have a very high opinion of their hardware and how their system works. There’s a reason why these obsolete systems essentially are still around today and people are still trying to maintain them. But today we’re going to talk about the I/NET infrastructure and some of the challenges of maintaining these systems now and then go into what Computrols does in terms of integration.

Addressing COVID-19 with your HVAC System

Holding Your Team Accountable in CBAS

All too often we see building automation systems become building remote control systems. This happens for a few reasons, most of which are well-intentioned. For example, when a building occupant complains about being uncomfortable, it is the building engineer’s responsibility to remedy the situation in a timely manner. As a result, building engineers often find quick fixes such as putting a point in operator mode to achieve the desired result. By itself, there is really nothing wrong with this approach, however, doing so and not taking the time to find the underlying issue can be problematic.
