Sometimes you can be overcome with too much information and too little time, leading to missed energy saving opportunities. What if you had a system that could draw your attention to abnormal energy performance? Would this make savings much easier and optimise your time?
Sentinel is a smart software engine that predicts what your energy use should be at any point of time for all your circuits, and that continuously compares your real energy use against the predicted one to discover unusual energy performance.
Monitor your energy performance with Sentinel Trends
Most dashboards will show you consumption levels, and you will have to spend hours discovering if start/end times are correct and if power levels are expected for that given day.
With Sentinel Trends we overlay your consumption with the predicted levels, so you immediately know if you’re on target or if some of your circuits require attention.
To access Sentinel Trends, click on Sentinel Trends on your Dashboard top menu.
Receive Sentinel notifications for immediate savings
In addition to allowing you to monitor and benchmark the performance of your building at all times, Sentinel enables you to be alerted as soon as inefficiencies and abnormal load demand are detected, for easy savings.
(consumption was abnormally high that afternoon, great that Sentinel sent a SMS text to the floor manager to return consumption back to normal)
To enable Sentinel alerts, click on Notifications Settings in your Dashboard Home page. Create new Detectors for the circuits you want to be alerted for and that’s it!
Any deviation from the expected consumption will from now on trigger real-time notifications visible within your Dashboard Home page, or sent to you via email and sms, proactively calling you for action with custom recommendations.
To summarise, check Sentinel Trends regularly and react quickly to Sentinel alerts, look how what is happening with your energy use, and ask yourself the right questions:
- Am I on target?
- Why has my consumption jumped or remained very high after hours?
- Can I do something about it right now?
We will never stop innovating! We want our customers to have the most innovative energy management solutions in the market, and that’s why we’re pioneering solutions like Sentinel for you.
