Gain quicker insights with Facility Monitoring (FM) Thresholds 

Get insight into your building’s performance faster through thresholds and stream status! The new FM Thresholds feature is packed with value for both twin builders and twin operators, here’s the breakdown: 

Define thresholds 

  • Users can set defined thresholds for how a building system or device should operate by setting numeric maximum and minimum value ranges.  
  • Bulk edit streams and thresholds through the grid view. 

Quick insights 

  • The grid view of streams allows users to quickly identify when these values are in or out of bounds by highlighting streams exceeding limits.  
  • Understand historical data faster via time series charts as the defined thresholds offer visual aid for quick investigation. 
  • Status pins for individual connections in the Properties panel provide quick visual cues:  
    • A green checkmark indicates healthy activity.  
    • A yellow exclamation indicates if a value has exceeded warning limits. 
    • A red exclamation for values currently outside the defined parameters.
