Eliminate Manual Effort and Increase Productivity and Operating Profits
With eGenKit installed and connected to a data network, the property owner and management completely eliminated manual meter readings. This saved a large amount of time, cost, and manual effort given the large number of meters to be read. Meter data can now be monitored remotely on demand, in real- time, and viewed in eGenKits’ web-based monitoring dashboard. eGenKit introduced huge efficiencies and increased productivity for the operation and billing of electricity in the dormitory to the benefit of all stakeholders: owner and management, users, and utility company.
With each power consumption point in the property being monitored remotely and in real-time by eGenKit, billing for usage can be streamlined and automated. The property management can customize billing based on customizable date, time, and rates. For example, bills can be charged based on variable move-in and move-out dates and times for each tenant of a dormitory. Rates can also be increased during peak usage times to regulate peak loads. With eGenKit, the property management has great flexibility in customizing billing options.
Using eGenKit to remotely monitor utility meters and power consumption yielded numerous features and benefits for both the dormitory owner and management as well the utility company.
Green buildings represent the future of sustainable housing and development. As the world’s population grows, developers and building owners have a responsibility to ensure that their buildings are built and operated to guarantee long term sustainability of the environment. Building operators and owners can demonstrate their commitment to sustainability by meeting certifications defined by authorities of respective countries such as the certifications by Singapore Green Building Council (SGBC). The best way to adhere to green building certifications is by monitoring each building’s consumption of resources. eGenKit enables comprehensive monitoring of green buildings by capturing and storing real-time data for temperature, power and water consumed, and greenhouse gas emissions. Data can be stored for auditing purposes to meet certification requirements. Data can also be compared against industry benchmarks and historical data from the same building to identify consumption trends and any changes in energy efficiency over time.
