Ecosystem ingests a building's data easily, learning its performance and behaviours
BrainBox AI, a Montreal-based firm involved in autonomous building technology, has partnered with KMC Controls, an independent manufacturer of open and scalable building automation and technology solutions. Both new and existing KMC system integrators now have access to BrainBox AI’s predictive and self-adaptive cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI).
KMC Controls designs and manufactures heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) control system products and building automation systems. Over the last seven years, KMC has developed the KMC Commander, an Intel Market Ready Solution and Smart Building Platform for commercial buildings of any size. Now, as part of the KMC Commander ecosystem, BrainBox AI can begin ingesting a building’s data more easily, learning its performance and behaviours, and proactively applying its AI-based changes to the system.
“We’re excited about the partnership, and we are thrilled to be giving their customers access to our industry-changing solution,” said Frank Sullivan, COO at BrainBox AI. “Now more than ever, it’s crucial for buildings to decrease their carbon footprint. By combining that goal with a significant reduction in energy costs, BrainBox AI is helping prepare the commercial real estate industry for a greener future without a large capital commitment.”
“Partnering with BrainBox AI is just the beginning of what I hope to be a deeper integration between BrainBox AI and KMC Controls in the future,” said Richard Newberry, CEO of KMC Controls. “We believe collaboration is the best way forward for Smart Buildings and IoT, and working with Brainbox AI to bring some of the latest automated energy efficiency technologies to our customer base only further demonstrates our joint commitments to interoperability and the democratization of data.”
