Energy Monitoring & Services
With the trend of IoT and Big Data comes collecting, storing, monitoring, analyzing, and serving this information in a user-friendly way. Energy Management Platforms are an invaluable tool for better understanding how a facility is operating and allowing personnel to make informed decisions to improve comfort and efficiency. Primary Systems, utilizes a few products to assist with providing our customers with the best options based on their needs to accomplish this.
Entronix Energy Management Platform
