Augury, a company that uses Internet of Things (IoT) and big data technology to improve building operations, has announced a deal with LBA Air Conditioning, Heating & Plumbing of Kansas City.
The press release says that Augury will provide its technology to LBA’s clients. The HVAC firm will use Its Auguscope to “listen” to equipment in its clients’ facilities to gather data on pumps, fans, chillers, HVAC equipment and other gear. The idea is that vibration and ultrasound emissions are unique to every machine. A close analysis of those emissions enables Augury to find potential problems before they lead to outages and enables fine tuning of operations.
In July, Energy Manager Today took a closer look at the use of the IoT and big data for preventive maintenance by Augury and ABB Motors and Generators.
