Dashboards for Dorm Monitoring and Student Engagement
The energy monitoring experts at DECK Monitoring are pleased to offer an affordable monitoring alternative for schools and academic communities.
Our basic energy monitoring package allows you to compare energy usage among dormitories for one simple low price per building. Each hall will be able to compare actual energy usage against your target values. Our software accounts for occupancy and square footage of each facility, so you can stage competitions among various halls to see which group can save the most over their building baselines.
We can also provide flexible full campus monitoring packages that include gas and water metering, integration of renewable technologies, and fully customized web pages. You can customize your Dashboards to include interactive campus maps and other original features (including your own web applications). Your imagination is the only limit.
Beauty and Brains
Why settle for Dashboards alone? Every energy monitoring solution from DECK includes two web interfaces: a separate Dashboard for each monitored facility, plus a back-end Admin Panel that includes powerful system management tools.
Your DECK Dashboards will display real-time data, equivalencies, and conservation competitions among campus buildings. But the DECK Dashboard also gives you industry-leading freedom to customize your display to fit your needs. Place your school logo or mascot on each page, and change page colors to match school branding. You can even place your own image slideshows and copy... all at no extra cost. Plus you will get a "Portfolio Dashboard" that allows you to see all monitored buildings in one web display.
In addition to your Dashboards, every DECK monitoring solution comes standard with the secure private Admin Panel. This interface is packed with system management tools such as robust analytic graphs and customizable automated alarms. Your facility managers will be able to use these features for a wide range of applications including system commissioning, energy audits, green certifications (such as EnergyStar and LEED), peak load management, and submetering.
This useful interface can accommodate any number of users with various permissions levels. For example, your facility manager may enter as an administrator with full powers to set alarms and look at all data points... at the same time, your students can be designated as users with limited access to data and no ability to change settings. This gives you a powerful additional tool to teach energy awareness. Unlike competitions alone, this kind of integrated approach has real power to change hearts and minds and shape long-term usage behaviors. DECK even provides materials to help your faculty integrate our analytic tools into an energy conservation curriculum.
The energy monitoring solution from DECK has minimal hardware requirements, helping us offer highly cost-effective solutions for campuses of all sizes. Our monitoring hardware is easy to install, and it can integrate with your existing system hardware, including building automation systems.
Best of all, you will have unlimited access to the responsive and knowledgeable DECK support team to address any questions or issues with your monitoring system. It is our goal to provide the best customer experience in the energy monitoring marketplace.
