Altair announces collaboration with CANDI Controls

Altair has announced its collaboration with CANDI Controls to offer a smart building solution that operates with commercial gateways. The new Altair-CANDI solution combines CANDI PowerTools, which handles the complex protocol and networking problems required to securely integrate and manage edge device communications, with Carriots Analytics’ data analytics interface, offering advanced data analytics and visualisation for all types of smart building data.

‘Altair is very excited to collaborate with CANDI to offer a comprehensive business intelligence platform for smart buildings,’ said Joe Sorovetz, senior vice president for Enterprise Business at Altair. ‘Carriots Analytics will not only let building operators collect and analyze building data, it also allows them to quickly derive valuable and actionable insight to increase efficiency and reduce operating costs.’

Through the integration of Carriots Analytics with PowerTools, Altair and CANDI are bringing to market a new way to acquire, analyse and visualise data from Smart Buildings.

This collaboration enables users to aggregate live and historical data from HVAC, energy, lighting, temperature, air quality and other devices, allowing them to combine it with data from other sources (e.g. Financial, Maintenance, Customer Relationship Data, Warranty Data). Smart building managers can now deploy and manage multiple locations and assets quickly, easily, and with significant ROI. The solution works with CANDI-powered gateways sold through Ingram Micro, Arrow Electronics, Logic Supply and other distributors.

‘Data analysis is essential to facilities, energy and sustainability managers who are responsible for multiple buildings. They interact with large amounts of data and need to quickly derive strategic insights from a holistic view of their portfolio,’ said Steve Raschke, CEO of CANDI. ‘Our alliance with Altair and integration of Carriots Analytics with CANDI PowerTools empowers those professionals with the ability to transform data into actionable knowledge. This is how smart buildings work.’
