The S4 Group's S4 Open: BACnet-N2 Router opens the door for any building with a legacy, proprietary, building automation installation to be BACnet compatible. S4 products have always been application agnostic, allowing best of breed BACnet value added services to be introduced to a building with a legacy BAS installation. BrainBox AI is the newest addition to that list of services, and we are pleased to officially introduce them to you.
BrainBox AI is the first in the world to apply cloud-based, deep learning-powered algorithms to optimize a building's existing Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning system. BrainBox AI's Software as a Service (SaaS) supplements your existing building management/automation system and combines the available building inputs with external data to take real-time pre-emptive energy saving actions, all while maintaining or enhancing occupant comfort.
The AI first studies how each zone in the building currently operates and builds a model that accurately predicts zone-by-zone conditions given the external weather conditions. The AI then identifies every potential improvement opportunity and acts on each one, always operating within the constraints set by the user (e.g. temperature set points) and based on other important external data inputs such as utility tariff structures and outside air pollution. It requires no human intervention and reacts to changes in the built environment immediately to ensure the highest tenant comfort and energy efficiency, at all times.
Natively, BrainBox creates multiple sources of value for buildings with current generation open BACnet BAS installations:
- cutting carbon output by 20-40%
- reducing energy spend by up to 25%
- improving occupant comfort by up to 60% (time within set point band)
- up to 50% extension of equipment service life
BrainBox AI's projects have consistently delivered significant & impactful results. Unlike analytics solutions, BrainBox AI takes the manual adjustments out of the daily routine.
All the above values previously available only to buildings with BACnet BAS installations can now be extended to buildings with legacy, proprietary, BAS installations by introducing the S4 Open: BACnet-N2 Router to the building configuration. BrainBox AI, and any other BACnet compatible application, can now utilize the data previously locked inside the proprietary BAS environment. At the same time the introduction of the S4 Open appliance starts the migration of the building infrastructure to a Smart Building.
