Two New Products that can make you Money: Time is money and the more time it takes you to install a product the less money you make. Want to up your Control Game? Watch this video: Think about it: How long does it take for you to install and set up a thermal expansion valve? What if you could reduce that time by at least an hour, and have more precise control of your superheat? What about Walk in coolers or freezers? What if you could reduce your set up time and leave you with a way to diagnose a problem remotely? Would that up your service game? Have you tried either of these products yet? If so please let me know in comments, and let me know how much it reduced your installation and startup time.

Live Webinar: Building Cybersecurity is a Legacy Building Risk — Thursday, April 12, 2018, 8 am PT/ 11 am ET. It’s not smart buildings – but any commercial building built or renovated in the past 30 years are what you should worry about. Before the smart buildings concept, digital, Internet-connected controls systems, such as HVAC, lighting, and elevators have been installed and managed by non-IT persons from architects, engineers, contractors and property managers. Without IT best practices, much-less cybersecurity requirements, there is significant exposure to: Life Safety Risks, Equipment Failure, Productivity Loss, Network Hopping, and Brand Damage.
