analytics Analytics zencontrol can provide a range of software solutions to increase the effectiveness of your building control.

zencontrol’s Cloud services analyse, store and transform the data helping stakeholders understand the performance of the building.

Smart buildings

The evolution of smart data onto a DALI-2 platform increases value to stakeholders while optimising the cost of deployment as the data is made available on a standard DALI-2 installation. DALI-2 provides stakeholders the flexibility to use devices from different manufactures that support the DALI-2 standards.

 

Our Analytics suite can process a wide variety of data

Wired or wireless

zencontrol supports wired and wireless DALI buildings, with full wireless support of IEC62386-104 devices over UDP and Thread®. Customers get to experience the same features and benefits independently of their choice of connection technology.

A zencontrol control system can detect devices supporting power monitoring standards and will stream their power consumption every 15 minutes to zencontrol’s analytic servers for processing.

Power dashboard

When comparing the energy consumption of a building, all contributors require consideration. With zencontrol’s Power analytics, the power consumption of all compliant DALI-2 devices is tracked to provide accurate and encompassing data.

See the amount of CO2 saved by energy saving features deployed in the building

The dashboard works out watts/m2 of the building using your buildings setup

Daily energy savings from features such as task tuning, sensors placement, daylight harvesting and other.

Create your own custom dashboard with specialised widgets and graphs focused on the areas you want to see

…and more

Per-fitting power monitoring for DALI-2 devices: emergencies, light fittings, switches, sensors and more

  • See per fitting, room, floor or departments
  • Identify high power consumption areas
  • Works with Tridonic PRE range of led drivers
  • Support for older DALI compliant sites on
  • Get per-fitting power measurements with the smart driver
  • Employ strategies to reduce power consumption
  • Change your building control to maximise energy savings
  • Provides a cloud connected API to suit large scale BMS
  • Track power usage over time to see how power saving plans have worked
  • Shows power data of external circuits through RTU power meters

The Issues dashboard allows maintenance teams to quickly and accurately track the system performance with a wide range of reported issue types.

Building health

Accuracy

Gathers data from almost every device in the building. The data is collected near real time with a maximum latency of less than 10 mins no matter the building size.

Issues over time

Understanding how issues occur over time enables maintenance to prioritise resources, budget repairs and capital costs. Trends in issues provide insight into product life cycles.

Records

A full record of all reported issues and issue resolution is automatically stored for future analysis. Issues data is available both for download and use in the creation of custom reports.

…and more

The Analytics dashboard allow you to compare and analyse your sites operation, understand the details, make changes and then validate the results.

Compare your data

Data and chart types

Choose your data-type and compare on the same graph to better understand the data. Chose the way that the data is shown with different chart types

Intervals and dates

Select the interval the data is calculated at to best suit your requirements. Compare power usages with and without task tuning, or power usage with and without daylight harvesting

Occupancy and arc levels

Compare occupancy and arc level in a room or area to evaluate the effectiveness of a sensor or sequence. Optimise sequences to reduce power consumption and nuisance dimming.

…and more

Previous comparisons can be saved / pinned to allow user to keep track of data for specific areas, rooms and sites.

Payback tracking

Compare

With zencontrols analytics engine a user can compare different building parameters to add context to the buildings data.

Validate

By saving the analytics, and revisiting after a change a user can compare the previous data to the current actuals. Evaluate the difference and see actual savings.

Tracking

Understand and track your changes and get accurate grasp of the predicted vs actual payback time.

  •    See when a fitting is replaced
  •    See time until payback
  •    Estimate payback rate

Lifetime

Understand the lifetime of a manufactures’ products with full lifetime tracking and statistics.

Lifetime tracking allows building own to see which brands are preforming better, and living up to the manufactures promise.

Colour shift tracking

Measure and analyse a sites colour performance over time.

While many LED manufacturers are full of promise about the performance of their products, the ability to measure actual performance has been difficult. With zencontrol analytics building owners can track CRI and colour, in addition to illuminance, of a room over time.

 

Use the zencontrol smart driver in your lighting to get per fitting CRI measurements.

With the Occupancy dashboard zencontrol uses DALI-2 compliant occupancy sensors to track and understand occupancy within each area, with each sensor providing a full set of occupancy data.

Making informed choices

Understanding how areas are used is of utmost importance to any building owner or  company seeking to be effective.

Maintenance and scheduling

Detailed occupancy data helps establish maintenance priority. Informed risk management is particularly critical when maintaining emergency and safety critical lighting.

Occupancy reports

A user can purchase and download a preformatted report that highlight and shows the buildings occupancy over a defined period.

Room occupancy rate

The occupancy dashboard shows both current building occupancy and total occupancy per day, which can be compared against occupancy over a week, month, year.

Use analytics to visualise and interact with your devices on Plan view. Quickly and easily identify faults, power usage and high/low occupancy.

Plan view

 

With the zencontrol plan view, Facilities managers, maintenance engineers and planners can quickly and easily visualise the site

 

  • See faults
  • See the current light levels
  • Make repairs easily
  • Click on lights / sensor / switches to configure and set up

Occupancy use maps

An occupancy heatmap overlay over the zencontrol Plan view provides an easy way to understand the most utilised areas and the flow of people throughout the day.

 

A user can select and compare different time periods to understand periods of the day which may need to be addressed.

 

  • Schedule maintenance on usage
  • Understand when resources are over booked
  • Prioritise maintenance and upgrade based on risk
  • Change lighting control based on usage for max. energy savings
  • Determine main movement paths and critical areas for maintenance
  • See which rooms/areas have the highest utilisation, reconfigure
  • Use the Smart driver in your lights for per-fitting occupancy mapping

Lux level mapping

With zencontrol you can avoid traditional methods of understanding lux levels and daylight harvesting where personnel use portable lux meters to take manual readings. Identify areas which can be fine-tuned to provide greater savings with our lux level and use-case mapping.

 

With lux level mapping a user can:

  • Understand their light levels better
  • Understand how well the lighting has been setup
  • Understand how much natural daylight has contributed to light levels
  • Determine critical lighting areas easier
  • Change your building control to maximize energy savings
  • Use the Smart driver in your lighting to get per fitting lux measurements
