Benefits

Save energy

Immediately identifies where energy wastage is occurring, so something can be done about it

Ongoing savings

Works collaboratively with stakeholders to ensure efficiencies are made on an ongoing basis

Improved visibility

Takes your portfolio online, so you get detailed insight into building operation

Easy installation

Our technology easily retrofits into any building or central plant, regardless of age

How does it work?

4D Monitoring does not replace your building management system (BMS). Instead, specialised sensors are fitted directly to key equipment within the central plant to monitor heating, cooling, air conditioning, lighting levels and more. Operational data is then sent to 4D Monitoring’s cloud-based platform, where it can be accessed remotely at any time.

By interrogating the live performance data, 4D Monitoring will immediately pinpoint where energy wastage is occurring and recommend a course of action.

4D Monitoring utilises a three-phase approach: to identify quick wins, optimise the plant, then maintain that level of performance through ongoing reviews and consultancy with stakeholders.

What can we monitor?

4D Monitoring can track and record temperature, humidity, pressures, light levels, lux, comfort cooling, power output, footfall and more. Here are some of our popular sensors:

  • Temperature sensor
  • Humidity sensor
  • Water detection sensor
  • Open/closed sensor
  • Motion detection sensor
  • Footfall sensor
  • Light detection sensor
  • Differential pressure sensor
  • Power output sensor

The portal

4D Monitoring’s cloud-based analytics portal gives you a window into how your buildings are performing. View live asset performance metrics; see how operational behaviour changes over time and access actionable insights with our in-built reporting features.

Via the portal, critical alarms can be set up to alert site management teams when equipment operates outside of predetermined parameters – for example, if water temperature rises above an agreed level – so operational issues can be resolved quickly.

All that data can be shared with facilities managers, site operators and agents for use in reports or to monitor key performance indicators.

Property performance reviews

A core feature of the 4D Monitoring offering is to provide an ongoing consultancy service to ensure efficiencies are continuously looked for.

Once quick wins have been identified and implemented, 4D Monitoring will review the asset usage data and provide recommendations for further improvements on a regular basis. The 4D Monitoring team will then hold quarterly review meetings with stakeholders – including the contracted engineers – to ensure the recommended changes are followed up on the ground.

Results and successes

4D Monitoring is currently installed in a mix of Tier 1, 2 and 3 properties, nationwide. 69% of these sites have demonstrated problems in the operation of the central plant.

Resolving these issues, and consulting with stakeholders to provide ongoing efficiency gains has led 4D Monitoring to achieve between 10-36% energy reductions across the portfolios we work with.

Improved tenant wellbeing

In addition to our core offering, 4D Monitoring can be used to support tenant health and wellbeing initiatives. Lighting, temperature and air quality all impact the comfort and productivity of employees. 4D Monitoring leverages the capabilities of micro sensor technology, such as Disruptive Technologies’ ‘intelligent little squares’ to report on these metrics and many more.

Training

We can train your service providers on the installation and operation of 4D Monitoring, and give them the tools they need to interpret the 4D Monitoring data for themselves.

Contractor engagement with the system is also tracked, putting the power straight back into your hands, and ensuring issues can be diagnosed and resolved quickly.
