Fresh Meadows, NY – U.S. Energy Group launches a new version of the USE Manager™ online monitoring system. The new USE Manager™ 6.0 features fully-integrated real-time status and building control via the web, allowing building owners and managers to know exactly what is happening in each building of a large portfolio and take action remotely and immediately. The new USE Manager™ 6.0 integrates information from the USE Controller™ Energy Management System (EMS) and the patented USE Verifier® Digital Fuel Gauge.
USE Manager™ has always been known for its alerting features, which direct attention to the most critical issues, allowing property managers to drive their buildings to peak operating efficiency in just minutes a day. The new USE Manager™ 6.0 provides more information in a more intuitive format and allows property managers to actually change heating system functions, such as desired indoor temperature (DIT), in response to Alerts right from their web browser. The new 6.0 platform will also pave the way for many new exciting features in the future, such as more expansive monitoring capabilities for water, gas and electric and direct integration to PDA devices.
“Building managers are busy” stated Jerry Pindus, CEO of U.S. Energy Group. “Now with the USE Manager 6.0, they have fully-integrated, real-time information right off of the Internet. They can reduce trips to their buildings and take care of everything right from their desk or from wherever they have access to a web browser. The USE Manager 6.0 gives owners ‘peace of mind’ – property managers have the information to give the type of service required to run the buildings efficiently.”
“The USE Manager 6.0 represents the next generation of building management,” stated David Unger, Chief Technology Officer of U.S. Energy Group. “It’s not just about monitoring; with USE Manager 6.0, you can fully control the buildings remotely via the web and also get critical information about the performance of the heating systems in realtime.”
