Monitor HVAC equipment remotely.
ConnectM provides insights and control to the operation of mechanical equipment via their Remote Performance Management (RPM) platform. Property owners can gain the insights necessary to turn capital expenditures into operational expenses by understanding which pieces of equipment are close to catastrophic failure. Property owners can then prioritize equipment needing service over a designated period of time. Service providers with access to ConnectM’s platform gain visibility of the problem before a truck rolls, saving time and money for everyone involved. Ferguson Ventures is focused on using sensors to identify service and repair needs within a property, and connect quality job demand to our trade pro customers.
