The renovations are designed by the nationally recognized, integrated architecture, engineering, and technology design firm Westlake Reed Leskosky of Cleveland, Ohio, and recently recognized with an AIA Ohio 2014 Honor Award. The new workplace is a thoroughly modern space, respectful of the history and tradition of the Cleveland Browns yet forging a progressive identity for the team, via bold imagery, messaging, team branding and colors.

WebCTRL Building Automation System from Automated Logic

Building owners can manage their building’s performance from anywhere in the world – and can do so more quickly and intelligently – due to enhancements to Automated Logic Corporation’s flagship product, the WebCTRL building automation system. The robust web-based building automation platform now features optimized trend reporting, new visualization tools, mobile support capability and Open Automated Demand Response (ADR) to further help manage building energy conservation measures, identify key operational problems and analyze the end results. WebCTRL_Dash

“The release of our latest WebCTRL system reinforces Automated Logic’s continued focus on making building data simple and powerful for our customers to use,” said Mead Rusert, president, Automated Logic. “By empowering them with tools and features that make it easy to visualize and interpret their building data, we are providing them insight on how to improve building performance from across the room or around the world.”

The WebCTRL system allows building owners and facility managers to balance energy efficiency with occupant comfort and uses building analytics and visual data to help drive smart management decisions. New features of the WebCTRL v6.5 system include:

  • Optimized trend engine – Performance and storage enhancements have been made to the WebCTRL system’s powerful trending engine, providing operators with the ability to store, visualize, and process years of historical building data in just seconds. The new turbo-charged trend engine offers 15 times the original read speed, 10 times the original delete speed, and five times the original write speed of trend data, all while using 70 percent less storage space. The result is that facility managers can capture even more building information faster, allowing them to analyze past building performance to drive smart decisions in the future.
  • EnvironmentalIndex1Powerful data visualization tools – Data visualization in the WebCTRL system is now even more powerful. A new toolkit for dashboards allows building operators to create their own customized dashboards for viewing the key performance metrics in their building, providing them with increased visibility into their building operations at any time. In a world where anything of significance should be measured and watched so that it can be improved, these dashboards make it easy for operators to know when their building is performing well and when it isn’t.
  • Enhanced mobile and screen navigation – The WebCTRL system now automatically detects small-screen devices such as smart phones and tablets, providing users with an optimal viewing and interaction experience.
  • OpenADR add-on – This new software application allows the WebCTRL v6.5 system to retrieve live power demand information from a participating utility company and then shed load based on pre-programmed demand response strategies. Fully compliant with the OpenADR v2.0a/b protocol, this add-on allows customers to curb their electrical demand (kW) in order to gain financial benefits such as a reduction in electrical costs or incentives.
