FSG Smart Buildings, which is a division of Facility Solutions Group, is releasing Chariot, a Building Automation System (BAS) software with Energy Management System (EMS) capabilities, the firm said.

The new offering combines lighting and HVAC controls with smart metering and IoT devices for multi-site command, control, and visibility.

FSG noted that 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 FSG chief product officer, Justin McCullough. “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 Wi-Fi-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, according to the company.

“Using Chariot as the software backbone, FSG Smart Buildings is able to provide turnkey building automation solutions,” said FSG Smart Buildings’ VP of product, Adam Haynes. “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 and notifications engine

-Global setpoint and schedule edits

-Smart energy and water metering

-Integration with all manner of IoT sensors and controls

-Robust energy dashboard

-Equipment, asset, and warranty tracking

-Multi-site, mixed-portfolio management in one interface

FSG said that the Chariot platform is available for any commercial building.
