Advanced Building Diagnostic Sensors

The BuildingAdvice™ hardware system is a set of advanced wireless sensors or monitors built upon a seamless wireless communication methodology that allows for easy deployment in buildings. Because it operates without connecting to the building’s network or building automation system (BAS), BuildingAdvice allows for hassle-free gathering of building performance data. The system is robust, flexible and fully FCC compliant.

Each of the monitors (details about each model below) is about the size of standard computer speaker and uses the Zigbee™ wireless mesh protocol (802.15.4MHz) to communicate building performance information to a central Communication Gateway.

The Gateway receives the data from the monitors and then communicates with BuildingAdvice’s data center using Cellular (GSM) communications. As a failsafe, the system can store up to 1 month’s worth of data when wireless communication is unavailable.
