ASPECT® Building Energy Management

Seamlessly integrating buildings and business

More than a building management system ASPECT provides all the tools you need to gain intelligence into your buildings’ performance and arm you with the ability to rapidly react to any situation that may adversely affect energy costs, business performance, and ultimately, your bottom line.


The built-in features of ASPECT make it easy to create and maintain customized views. Use ASPECT with eXplore touchscreen display, to provide users an intuitive experience to view system status, override setpoints and schedules, and much more.


ASPECT is an award-winning scalable building energy management and control solution designed to allow users seamless access to their building data through standard building protocols (BACnet, Modbus, Ethernet, etc.) and common IT technologies available on a wide array of computers and smart devices, both iOS, and Android.

New features of ASPECT

ASPECT combines real-time integrated control, supervision, data logging, alarming, scheduling, and network management functions with Internet connectivity and web serving capabilities.

New guidelines help create projects that run more efficiently and faster to develop

ASPECT offers improved usability, a value-added and simplified licensing module, flexible configurations, software integrations integration system, and application data that allows the creation of building operations easier to monitor, manage and optimize. Globally serving all building sizes, comprehensive ASPECT building solution simplifies integration by using a secure platform that easily scales to meet application requirements for today and tomorrow.



ASPECT Award-winning features


Schedule your buildings through programs such as Microsoft Outlook (2007 and later), Google Calendar, Apple iCal, and any of over 40 other programs that utilize the iCalendar protocol. With ASPECT software you can schedule a room in your building for a meeting, a workday, or weekend occupancy, without the need to access a proprietary scheduling tool.

Internet down? Don't worry, should your building lose internet connectivity, ASPECT will still maintain the last received schedule until connectivity is restored and new changes are made.

With ASPECT you can schedule a resource for a meeting in your corporate calendar and the building will automatically adjust for the occupancy of that zone. No need to worry about turning things on or off. Just plan your meeting and Aspect will do the rest.


Store and retrieve all building data through MySQL® or other databases. This allows for data to be mined easily and effectively through familiar programs like SAP® Crystal Reports and Microsoft Excel®. With advanced audit trail functionality, reports can be generated to not only show energy trends but reasons for anomalies in the data as well as what user was responsible for any changes.


ASPECT allows you to access your building information on the go through RSS feeds, Twitter, and email. Through your phone, tablet, or laptop you can access pertinent information wherever you are.

With RSS feed technology you can receive a plethora of information including energy data directly to your email or smart device. Receive notifications on alarms or statuses of your building system on your smartphone. Have reports emailed to you at the end of the day in the comfort of your home. These are just a few of the convenient ways that ASPECT brings information straight to you.

ASPECT can get important information to any level of user quickly through the programs and apps you use every day. By simply sending an SMS to 40404 and "Follow" a specific building or zone, a user can leverage Twitter to receive a building's Tweets and get up-to-date information.

Manage energy consumption with XPath®. Data from XML tables can be integrated to create more dedicated and automated control. For example, weather services from sites like Yahoo!® Weather, and Weather.com can be utilized to manage building routines based on predicted weather patterns. Services like Google Latitude can be used to let your building know when you have entered or left the proximity of a building and automatically adjust setpoints or manage lighting.

Weather data can be integrated into ASPECT and used to predict energy loads and building automation requirements. Unseasonal weather patterns can result in the building changing its routines accordingly to ensure optimal comfort and energy usage.

Provides you with powerful analyzing and reporting tools to use no matter where you have decided to record historical data. Charting options now allow you to select trends from a tree rather than a table, saving development time.



Interface via eXplore touchscreen

ASPECT with eXplore touchscreen display. By bringing strategies into one simple device you can drastically reduce the installed cost of an automation system.




With ASPECT you no longer need to learn how to operate a separate, proprietary building automation system (BAS) to get real-time information, analyze data, make operational decisions, or even to change settings. You can do it all, more naturally, through the business programs and apps, you are already using on your computer, tablet, and smartphone.



Other ASPECT benefits include 

ASPECT allows users to view and modify information including trends, setpoints, schedules, and more from their Building Automation System on the fly with their iOS and Android web-enabled smart devices, as well as from any browser. Site dashboards are easily user-customizable, allowing equipment, schedules, trends, and more to be added as favorites for quick access.


Once deployed these projects can be modified and expanded via browser for fast and convenient system changes without needing a dedicated software application. ASPECT also incorporates enhancements including embedded scheduling tools, pre-configured application templates, a new push notification system, a professional embedded graphics library, and much more.



User-friendly dashboards



ASPECT utilizes HTML5, allowing you to view and modify information including trends, setpoints, schedules, and more from your Building Energy Management System on the fly. End-users need very little training as the HTML5 interface follows familiar standard web practices.  Once installed, the project can be modified and expanded via a browser for fast and convenient system changes without needing a dedicated software application.

Scheduling and alarms

Aspect on Mobilephones


With ASPECT you can schedule a resource for a meeting in your corporate calendar and the building will automatically adjust for the occupancy of that zone.  No need to worry about turning things on or off.  Just plan your meeting and ASPECT will do the rest.

ASPECT collects data every 5 seconds and uses an integrated push notification service to immediately send important alarm and system events to your Android, iPhone, iPad, and desktop, enabling an efficient and effective response to alerts making ASPECT ideal for hospitals, data centres and other critical applications that require fast response times for operational continuity.

Receive instant notifications of critical faults direct to your mobile smart device.



Powerful integration  

ASPECT supports many common open drivers, such as Modbus® and BACnet. This allows for simplified integration with many third-party, non-HVAC systems, including lighting and energy management

ASPECT  integrates easily with any legacy systems that are already in place. For example: Legacy Support for Cylon's Unitron, American Auto-Matrix's PUP and Teletrol's TSC

Upgrade and Integration: Customers with legacy systems can upgrade and integrate with ASPECT via the robust hi-fidelity drivers, ASPECT offers superior integration that reads and writes points, collects trends, collates alarms, distributes schedules, and provides users with all the benefits of the ASPECT-UI and functionality.



A Solution that Fits  


MATRIX series 















MATRIX™ Series provides traditional building control features such as alarming, scheduling, trending, and custom programming. The result is a flexible area control solution for BMS.
