Monitoring when something is on or off can have many purposes, for example, knowing the accumulated running time of equipment can support service requirements predictions. Observing and logging exact on & off times, and correlating that data with your energy consumption information may reveal huge savings opportunities.
Runtime monitoring is best applied to:
HVAC fans – the runtime of a fan can tell us when it’s time for a filter change.
Oil/Water pumps – keep track of how long pumps run, for efficient production monitoring.
Doors – monitor and control open & close times, both for security and energy optimization.
eze System offers suitable and flexible options regarding how you’d like signals to be interpreted, for example: analog, a switch, or a combination of several sensors. More creative sensor inputs, such as using a microphone for noise data collection, or an accelerometer to monitor the open & shut rate of doors and windows, are both enabled.
