Hartz Mountain takes control with new energy system.Hartz Mountain, one of New Jersey's largest owners of commercial office space, has taken aggressive steps in improving their tenants' comfort while also reducing operating costs operating costs npl → gastos mpl operacionales through UtiliVisor[R], the "state of the art" remote monitoring (protocol) remote monitoring - (RMON) A network management protocol that allows network information to be gathered at a single computer. Whereas SNMP gathers network data from a single type of Management Information Base (MIB), RMON 1 defines nine additional MIBs that provide a system.
Hartz Mountain senior vice president, Joseph Margiotta, and vice president, Sal Gentile, made the decision to implement the UtiliVisor system because they wanted a better quality of temperature and comfort conditions for their tenants as well as the advantage of reducing equipment downtime The time during which a computer is not functioning due to hardware, operating system or application program failure. .

New York, Middle Atlantic state of the United States. It is bordered by Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and the Atlantic Ocean (E), New Jersey and Pennsylvania (S), Lakes Erie and Ontario and the Canadian province of based utility consultant with over 27 years of building operating experience, developed UtiliVisor three years ago to analyze building system performance in "real time". UtiliVisor analyzes data from newly upgraded Andover controls systems, without additional levels of control or new products or software. Gentile stated, "After reviewing the systems available in the marketplace, only UtiliVisor can analyze and track chiller chill·er

Hartz established a team that utilizes the UtiliVisor monitoring capabilities. The team is comprised of Energy Options, the Andover dealer, F&G and Binsky Mechanical, the service contractors, and all of Hartz's management. Every month, UP&M provides Hartz with building oversight management engineers who monitor on a 24/7 basis. They report and recommend improved operating strategies and uncover equipment performance issues. UP&M's building oversight services provide operational engineering support and serve as liaison to and among all of Hartz's team members.
Gentile explained that the UtiliVisor has improved tenant comfort by modifying the optimum start up strategies and by identifying VAV system problems which affect comfort and operating costs. He added, "No other automation system or monitoring system gives us the analytical tool and ongoing knowledgeable and experienced engineering support to identify and solve HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) In the home or small office with a handful of computers, HVAC is more for human comfort than the machines. In large datacenters, a humidity-free room with a steady, cool temperature is essential for the trouble-free system problems."
