Surveyor Remotely Manages HVAC, Lighting, Electrical and Mechanical Systems
Venstar’s Surveyor EMS empowers small-box retailers and other multi-location businesses to remotely monitor, control and manage their HVAC and lighting/electrical and mechanical systems at all their stores using a desktop computer, laptop or mobile device, giving them unprecedented visibility into their energy usage. Designed specifically for small-box retail chains with hundreds to thousands of locations, Surveyor provides powerful energy management tools for energy and facility managers responsible for managing multi-location companies.
Venstar’s Surveyor LCP500 Load Control Panel controls up to 10 independent lighting zones and allows a variety of control methods, including event driven, time scheduled, manual operation and Internet control. Users can choose one or a combination of the control methods to include multiple accessories that can be used to control the same lighting zone and allows for up to a two-hour override per zone.
The LCP500 also supports daylight harvesting to significantly reduce energy costs and complies with California Title 24’s requirements. The built-in lighting control system and networked sensors identify the levels of outside light coming in through windows and automatically adjust interior lights. Daylight harvesting delivers a significant decrease in the lighting needed, which greatly reduces energy costs. Small-box retail chains can expect to see significant savings when they incorporate daylight harvesting into their energy management plans.
