Artificial Intelligence IoT solution for large commercial buildings

Aug 30, 2016

Verdigris, a California-based artificial intelligence company, announced the arrival of Einstein, an Internet of Things smart sensor and metering solution that reduces energy consumption and cost in buildings.

scalable connected sensor for complex enterprise facilities. By analyzing Einstein’s continuous stream of energy data, Verdigris promises smarter and more responsive building operation.

“Einstein makes it unbelievably easy to know what’s happening inside your building in real time, down to a single appliance,” said CEO Mark Chung. “We put hard-earned money back into our customers' pockets each month by predicting the most accurate forecasts of utility, weather and energy data, and automating the reduction of their most inefficient energy operations”

Verdigris boasts that their patented artificial intelligence and IoT platform transforms mission-critical facilities into living environments. Each Einstein sensor wirelessly streams millions of samples per second from a facility’s electrical panel into to the cloud. The Verdigris artificial intelligence then analyzes these electrical “fingerprints” to automatically optimize building controls, predict breakdowns, and send users critical notifications about energy use.

“Verdigris embodies the potential for IoT to remake the energy and building analytics landscape,” said David Kipling, vice president of corporate investments at Jabil Circuit, both a customer and an investor in Verdigris. “By collecting and analyzing the most granular energy data possible, Verdigris helps facilities managers cut incredible amounts of energy waste and enables a true understanding of what's driving their costs.”

Verdigris’ AI software and smart sensors aggregate key energy consumption and prediction data into instantaneous mobile apps and web dashboards. Weekly reporting e-mails offer insight into energy statistics and measure progress against customer goals.
