Energy saving potential with smarter lighting solutions

Posted on: October 20th, 2022 by Tom No Comments

In the UK approximately 20% of the energy consumed in buildings is used on the lighting, switching to an LED lighting system which is properly controlled will vastly lower that figure and help drive the UK’s goal to be Net Zero by 2050.

Energy-efficient lighting technology has seen major advances in recent years, with LEDs in particular now able to offer significant energy and maintenance savings across a range of applications. However LED fixtures alone are only part of the solution. In the rush to install new technology we must no forget that if we want to drive the highest possible energy savings whilst creating comfortable, effective and responsive environments, we have to control it and control it correctly.

With the rising cost of energy and the need to drive lower energy usage within buildings there’s no better time to check out how our updated iNSIGHT Energy Building Information Service (EBIS) can help your customers reach their energy saving targets.

Our iNSIGHT software makes it simple to create, view, monitor and report on a buildings or estates performance. We recently updated the user experience and launched the following new features:

Enhanced Profiling
This new feature enables profile lines, tunnel profiles and percentage over and under indicators to be added to charts. Users can then see the energy profile which illustrates a building’s operational pattern on charts. This updated feature enables users to highlight issues and patterns in energy usage quickly and easily.

Enhanced Chart Options
Enhanced options for charts including switching between value and %, hover over to see value, show bar charts for individual points or (virtual) point groups and the ability to have stacked charts. These new options provide users with greater flexibility in how they view, analyse and identify where and when savings can be made.

Bar Chart Comparisons
Using the new stacked bar chart functionality comparisons between data sets is made simpler and anomalies and issues quicker to identify. This new feature enables users to view the different systems energy usage stacked together in a bar and compared against a different floor, area or building.

Customisable Bulk Data Download
The team at Synapsys can make customisable reports of the bulk data available for download. It will enable users to select the points they want over the timescale they choose. This provides users with a file which contains all the data from the selection they made. This data can be used for further analysis.

iNSIGHT EBIS has a host of features and simple to use tools to make identifying where energy savings and performance improvements can be made, so isn’t it about time you offered your customers the chance to get energy smart?

You can learn more about iNSIGHT EBIS here, alternatively contact your local sales manager or call us on 01444 246 128 to arrange a demonstration.

Celebrating our coming of age this October

Posted on: October 5th, 2022 by Tom No Comments

Synapsys are pleased to be celebrating coming of age this October with our 21st anniversary, which also nicely coincides with us becoming an Employee owned Business.

Harvey Roft and Andy Devine founded Synapsys Solutions in 2001 and we’ve come a long way from our early beginnings in Hurstpierpoint.

From our initial SIP interfacing products to OEM controls and developing energy dashboards. A move to our own premises in Burgess hill and our recent hardware advancements SIP+, SIP2, SIPslice, through to our LiGO lighting controls and energy and billing software platforms, we’ve always had the same mission – to develop and supply innovative hardware and software solutions to the intelligent building control industry.

Moving into our 21st year marks huge changes at Synapsys. We announced that on the 14th September 2022 Synapsys Solutions became an employee-owned business run through an employee ownership trust (EOT).

This decision was driven by the desire to continue the company’s independence, product innovation, choice for our customers and recognition of the fact that Synapsys Solutions has been built upon the hard work and commitment of its employees over the past 21 years.

Harvey Roft said “The past 21 years have seen us build Synapsys from its humble beginnings to a trusted partner and supplier for all our customers. From a small product offering to the full range of hardware and software solutions that we provide today our company has continued to innovate while maintaining its values, culture and ethos”.

“We believe the people best able to continue this and take the company on to the next level, are those who work within it, who helped to build it and continue to make it grow”.

We hope you will celebrate our 21st year with us and we look forward to continuing to work with you as we take Synapsys Solutions into its new era of ownership and development.
