Data Collection and Management

Data Collection and Management

Collecting vast amounts of energy data is one of the many challenges of energy management, ensure you have a database that you can rely on.

Data Collection

Sigma software supports automated data collection and is sufficiently flexible to aggregate energy data, from multiple locations, systems, and formats, giving you a single, secure database that you can rely on. Fully accessible, the solution saves you time and resource from managing multiple static systems.

Sigma software is compatible with a wide range of building service engineering technologies and can collect data from a range of sources, including:

  • Meter import
  • Data logger import
  • BEMS import
  • Degree day data
  • Benchmark data
  • Utility bill import (EDI, CSV, PDF & Manual)
  • Industry data (e.g. DUoS)
  • Manual data entry

Internet of Things (IoT)

Collect any time series data from IoT Sensors through an almost limitless number of integrations. With Sigma’s IoT extension, easily capture consumption readings from meters, occupancy data, footfall and temperature data by HTTP Post (in JSON, XML or CSV format). Integrations can be supported by a range of frameworks such as Microsoft Power Automate, Zapier and IFTT.

Data Management

Managing your energy data effectively is the key to efficient Monitoring and Targeting.

Good quality data is crucial for your business’ understanding of energy usage and is the key to compliance, streamlined budgeting, and achieving carbon reduction targets. It also provides complete portfolio transparency in the mission to drive down consumption.

Delivering Quality Energy Management Data

An infographic showing how TEAM delivers quality energy management data.

We understand that to facilitate the most accurate monitoring, targeting and reporting of energy and consumption, quality data needs to be:

Data correctly reflects what is being measured and its expected behaviour

All expected data is present and without gaps

Data conforms to a required format that agree with each other

Data is available to complete energy management duties on time

Sigma aggregates vast sources of data into one single, secure database, meaning achieving high quality data is easy. Its functionality addresses issues like data gaps, overdue, and unexpected data, and provides efficient trend analysis and exception reporting. The advanced data monitoring tools help you to accelerate corrective and preventative action and make confident business decisions based on a foundation of robust information.

Sigma energy management software gives you the assurance that you have reliable data to support your organisation’s mandatory certifications and legislative requirements; helping you to achieve accurate and successful compliance for credible business operations 

Meter Data Exchange

Through the Meter Data Exchange, data can be collected directly from an onsite Building Management System. Connect directly with oBIX enabled devices such as Tridium Niagara BAS controls and other oBIX systems. Standard options include Data Loggers, Smart Meter, Building Automation Systems, ALC, OPC DA/HAD and Modbus TCP/IP. In excess of 200 data import integrations are available.

Audit and Event Logging

Sigma provides a comprehensive Audit and Event logging capability at a system level to track all changes made within the system (additions, deletions and updates) as well as providing visibility of all asynchronous activities such as report and export schedules, and data import schedules to support rapid and effective troubleshooting.
