90-Day Remote Boiler Monitoring Trial
Vericon Systems is offering a free trial of its BCM:Connect remote boiler monitoring solution for Housing Associations and Social Housing providers.
Billed as “an intelligent device that not only monitors a boiler’s condition in real time, but also predicts when it might fail”, BCM:Connect enables landlords and M&E providers to plan forward maintenance and/or increase the likelihood of a first-time fix should an engineer be needed on site, while avoiding costly and unexpected failures.
The solution can also limit and reset the boiler off-site, and even change the heating temperature. Performance data can be recorded and analysed (through a dedicated portal – VS:Connect) to predict and identify common failures such as low pressure, loss of gas and even a frozen condensate pipe. Through integration with external sensors the device can also report environmental concerns such as damp and mould.
Vericon also stresses BCM:Connect does not compromise the integrity of a boiler system or invalidate boiler warranties or safety qualifications, as it is mounted adjacent to each boiler.
Explaining the rationale behind the trial, Bernard Cook, Vericon Systems managing director, says: “We want people to experience first-hand how remote diagnostics and monitoring can significantly reduce the need for engineer call-outs, reduce costs and give tenants a better service.
“BCM:Connect creates greater efficiencies for housing providers, building managers and tenants alike. Preventative maintenance programmes can be put in place that not only save money in the long term, but also ensure legal and regulatory compliance is consistently maintained.
“We have launched this free trial because we want to give social housing providers and other organisations the opportunity to experience these benefits first-hand and evaluate the portfolio-wide potential of connected boiler control without risk.”
