3 Things to Look for in a BAS Provider

If you’ve ever faced a problem with your building automation controls, you’re probably sick and tired of being forced to call your expensive sole-source vendor for a simple troubleshooting fix. If you’re used to spending hundreds of dollars on a short phone call or waiting days for an easy update, listen – it doesn’t have to be this way!

You can gain freedom just by switching your controls provider. An open protocol control system will allow you to leverage a multi-source vendor environment thus providing you the freedom to own and manage your building controls. You can review trends, generate reports, manage alarms, modify controller configurations, and even troubleshoot and problem solve simple issues. Now who’s in control?

Finding the Right BAS Provider

If you’re ready to take control of your controls, here are the 3 important things to look for in a provider.

1: Multi-Source Vendor/Open protocol

Moving away from a Sole-source vendor is first and foremost. With an open protocol control system and a multi-source vendor, you have the freedom to choose – choose your vendor, software, or even the equipment you use. You’re no longer handcuffed to a specific provider!

2: Thorough training

Find a controls provider that is willing to train you and your staff on your controls software, negating the need for constant service calls to your proprietary (single source) vendor. You vendor should work closely with you to ensure your system is designed the way you want it and that it’s as easy to use as possible. Gain long term, self-sufficient success through custom training to match whatever level of self-proficiency you desire. 

3: Proper documentation

In order to be self-sufficient in your bas controls programs, you need detailed, accurate documentation of your current controls systems blueprint. Look for a vendor that will provide these so you have all the info you need.
