BAS Points vs. Equipment-Focused Solutions

BAS Points-Focused and Equipment-Focused Building Software. Resolute Building Intelligence


Building Performance software is an unprecedented catalyst for elevating building operations, enhancing energy efficiency, and cutting operational costs. But not all solutions are created equal. You'll find two principal types: Building Automation System (BAS) points-focused software and Equipment-Centric Software. Ready to elevate your decision-making? Keep reading.

BAS Points-Focused Software: The All-Encompassing Approach

Pros of BAS Points-Focused Software

  • Energy Efficiency: These platforms leverage data analytics to uncover key areas for energy savings.

  • Proactive Maintenance: Detect issues before they become problems, thereby reducing downtime.

  • Regulatory Compliance: Ace energy efficiency standards like LEED with ease.

  • Real-Time Monitoring: 24/7 oversight of building systems for immediate issue detection.

  • Custom Reports: Dive deep into data with tailored reports on energy usage, equipment health, and more.

Cons of BAS Points-Focused Software

  • Initial Setup: Most require initial configurations to sync with existing BAS.

  • Data Complexity: Requires expertise to interpret data from multiple systems.

  • Cost Factor: Initial and ongoing costs can add up.

Equipment-Focused Software: The Asset-Manager’s Dream

Pros of Equipment-Focused Software

  • Preventive Maintenance: Schedule regular check-ups to avoid unplanned equipment failures.

  • Lifecycle Management: Oversee assets from purchase to retirement.

  • Regulatory Compliance: Keeps you up to code on maintenance and safety standards.

  • Inventory Management: Optimize and track your equipment inventory.

Cons of Equipment-Focused Software

  • Limited Scope: Generally lacks holistic energy optimization.

  • Lack of Real-Time Monitoring: Doesn’t provide continuous oversight.

  • Integration Challenges: May need additional tweaks to mesh with your existing systems.
