ROUND ROCK, Texas – FSG Smart Buildings, a division of Facility Solutions Group, today announced the release of Chariot, a Building Automation System (BAS) software with robust Energy Management System (EMS) capabilities combining lighting and HVAC controls with smart metering and IoT devices for multi-site command, control, and visibility. Chariot is capable of being a stand-alone solution or tying together disparate and legacy systems across portfolios of buildings and being a single pane of glass for all things facility-related.
“Chariot brings affordable building automation and IoT solutions to the commercial market in one easy-to-use software platform,” said Justin McCullough, FSG Chief Product Officer. “The problem we see is too many proprietary systems not being expandable and IoT-friendly, and we think Chariot is the best way to extend the life of systems and avoid costly rip and replace scenarios.”
The Chariot platform supports both wired and wireless protocols, including Niagara, Zigbee, and Wifi-based solutions, and integrates with major brands such as Siemens, Novar, and others. The Chariot platform uses modern architecture and API services, enabling cloud-to-cloud integrations and custom IoT initiatives.
“Using Chariot as the software backbone, FSG Smart Buildings is able to provide turnkey building automation solutions,” said Adam Haynes, FSG Smart Buildings VP of Product. “FSG can design and deploy unique hardware solutions to support custom IoT initiatives, and Chariot helps bring those solutions to life with the most intuitive BAS user interface in the market today.”
Highlights of the Chariot platform release include:
- Multi-site command and control of smart lighting and HVAC
- Data and trend analysis
- Custom alerts & notifications engine
- Global setpoint and schedule edits
- Smart energy and water metering
- Integration with all manner of IoT sensors and controls
