What you really want to know is,
“What’s in it for me? Why should I care?”
You need to know how you can benefit and to understand what you could expect if you buy Builddie™. The following table describes Builddie’s features and the associated benefits.
Saves energy costs
  • Builddie™ detects your usage patterns in real time. It automatically applies that information to save you energy usage and costs.
  • Builddie™ detects equipment cycling patterns and saves you money by applying learned patterns to future use.
  • Builddie™ detects a new problem that could result in a cost increase for you. It “thinks” about the new cost problem, applies learning from its other “experiences”, and tries to solve the cost problem pre-emptively.
  • If Builddie™ can’t fix the problem, it sends you an anomaly report.
  • Builddie™ constantly learns and updates its “mindware” to manage your energy costs.

Operational efficiency
  • Builddie™ identifies unusual changes in the building, recommends improvements, and executes actions if needed.
  • When unexpected changes occur such as a guest changing the HVAC settings—you are notified. Tells you the implications of the change.
  • Builddie™ recognizes “signature anomalies” that could point to equipment faults. You receive an anomaly report.
Saves energy costs
  • Builddie™ tells you the right amount of energy you need in the building—using learned data.
  • Builddie™ provides bill analysis to ensure that you are paying the right rates, and spending the right amount for energy.
  • When you review energy usage on Builddie™, you see real-time energy consumption and its related cost. You can make decisions to prevent getting a big bill.
  • Builddie™ improves billing transparency by making sure the utility company only charges you for actual use.
Optimizes building comfort
  • By cutting resources where they are not being used, Builddie™ ensures comfort.
  • Builddie™ analyzes the amount of energy needed, and equipment involved.
  • Builddie™ then tells you how to cycle the energy to maximize comfort.
Operational efficiency
  • Builddie™ provides maximum efficiency by analyzing consumption of energy in the building and equipment.
  • You receive anomaly reports when experiencing scheduling errors such as linked systems not operating together, or excessive pre-cooling.
  • You are notified of inefficiencies such as having outside lights on during daylight hours.
  • You are notified when equipment is not functioning well and needs to be maintained or replaced.
  • You get information on projects (major and minor) that you need to do to correct operational inefficiencies. Tells you what you need to budget.
Saves energy costs
  • Intelligent Energy Auditing identifies building improvements that save energy costs.
  • Builddie™ suggests a list of projects—by priority—that could save energy costs.
  • Some utility companies give credits when you manage your energy costs.
  • Builddie™ performs customized, real-time, ongoing energy audits—not generic rudimentary energy company audits.
  • There may be tax incentives or rebates for energy-saving purchases.
Optimizes building comfort
  • Builddie™ tells you where and when energy is being used and how to optimize comfort.
  • If energy is being wasted where there is no occupancy, Builddie™ sends you a report. You can choose to divert those resources into either comfort or savings.
  • You get a report on how you could correct the problem.
  • Builddie™ works from occupant feedback.
  • If the problem is severe, Builddie™ can autocorrect for you.
Operational efficiency
