Are you sure your HVAC system is functioning properly right now?

temperature monitoring and alerts for BUILDINGS & FACILITIES

  • Remote monitoring of local or distant facilities prevents frozen pipes or overheating and identifies water leaks
  • Alerts can be sent to different people at different times of day or week
  • Sensor data is permanently logged on cloud servers for viewing trends or diagnosing problems

smart

  • Easy to install—wireless sensors are self-configuring and automatically communicate with servers
  • Easy to set up—just name the sensors and identify who should be notified when problems occur
  • Easy to operate—web-based viewing and reporting with 15-minute training sessions available

simple

  • All sensor data is encrypted during transmission to Coris servers and is permanently logged
  • 24/7/365 access to sensor status and history without the need to create a “hole” in your IT firewall
  • All sensor logs are maintained permanently on secure servers in secure data centers in the cloud

we monitor temps 24/7

Temperature probes are installed in HVAC ducts or against boiler supply and return pipes in your buildings to diagnose problems and prevent heating issues.

Coris Multi-Sensor Modules (MSMs) are also equipped with an ambient temperature sensor so that the MSM may be installed on a wall to monitor room temperature.

Coris' encrypted wireless mesh network enables your MSMs to communicate with one another to reach a Gateway.  This allows one Gateway to support 35 Coris modules.

Once your Coris Gateway is connected to a router with an Ethernet cable, it automatically connects to Coris servers on the Internet.

Secure Coris servers record all data received from sensors—accessible anytime, anywhere.

a few features

alerts customized to your needs

A very powerful feature of Coris technology is its ability to notify people. The Coris server will send out messages to any number of people once specified conditions are met and a user-defined delay interval elapses.

 

The most commonly used alerts for buildings and facilities are:

 • Temperature is below a user-defined threshold, as seen below (e.g. failure of heating system)

 • Temperature is above a user-defined threshold (e.g. failure of cooling system)

 • Communications with the temperature sensor has been lost (e.g. power outage)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alerts can also be set up to monitor water sensors, humidity sensors, closed loop sensors, or external factors (weather, price of electricity, demand response signals from utility).

 

Because all data tracked by Coris is available via the Internet, all usual means of communication are available to alert users of problems—including text message, email, automated phone call, and pager.

graphs and downloadable data for analysis

For each temperature sensor, you can view graphs like the one below for any time period you choose. As you hover over different times on the graph, a dot appears on each data set represented, and the values at those times are shown in the upper right corner of the graph. To zoom in on an area, all you need to do is highlight the area.

folders simplify management

Similar to how file folders work on a PC, Coris Folders make it easy to organize large numbers of devices by location with simple “drag-and-drop” operation.

 

Coris Folders can contain all the MSMs in a particular department or all the MSMs in a particular location. There is no limit to the number of folders and subfolders you can use—allowing sophisticated organization by schemes such as by country, by region, by city, by building, by floor, by restaurant, etc.

sub-accounts allow you to delegate controls and access

This feature lets you designate which users get access to which devices. This can also allow access to devices without letting certain users change settings.

Coris in action

Ensuring Insurance Company

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An insurance company was experiencing high numbers of claims due to frozen pipes in buildings that are not occupied every day of the week.  Coris temperature sensors were installed in the buildings to monitor the interior temperatures of the buildings and of vulnerable pipes that are not protected from cold temperatures.  Coris servers monitored the sensor readings, and if the outdoor temperature was below freezing and the interior temperature was in the “danger zone”, alerts were sent out to building staff.  Alerts were also sent to the customer service center of the insurance company—and calls were made to the building manager if it seemed likely that pipes would freeze if corrective action wasn't taken.  The insurance company stated that the monitoring and alerts from Coris prevented frozen pipes in all of the buildings, and their data show that 38% of the buildings would have had frozen pipes without the Coris sensors.

Immediate Boiler Diagnosis

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A school was having problems with the two boilers that provide heat to the classroom radiators in the middle school.  Coris temperature sensors were attached to the supply and return pipes to monitor water temperature leaving the boilers and the temperature of the water returning after circulating through the radiators.  The very first night that the sensors were installed,  the boilers did not turn on, and the supply temperature went below the alert level that had just been established.  The facilities staff received the alerts, sent someone to see if they could manually start the boilers, and they did. They left a message for their boiler repair contractor to come fix the problem—which he did the next morning.

Wine Storage

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A wine distribution company needs to store its inventory at 55°F.  The warehouse is climate-controlled; but over the past few years, there have been a few times when the heating or cooling systems were not maintaining the desired temperature of 55°F.  Coris temperature sensors were installed, and alerts are sent out whenever the temperature in the warehouse is more that 4°F off-target for more than 30 minutes (to account for temporary temperature changes during deliveries).  The temperature logs have also provided proof to retail stores that the wine has been stored in the warehouse at proper temperatures continuously.

FAQs

How close must MSMs be placed to what I need to monitor?

The MSM comes with a 6-foot temperature sensor which can be upgraded to 75-feet.

Is there a limit to the number of sensors I can install?

No, you can add as many sensors as needed to monitor temperatures of your buildings, ducts, or pipes.

What do I need to get started?

You will need an Internet connection. Coris will provide the Gateway Module and Multi-Sensor Modules (MSMs) along with their power adapters. Coris will also provide the temperature sensor that will be installed in the unit to be monitored.  Each MSM can monitor four temperature sensors, and each Gateway can support up to 35 MSMs!
