St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) August 19, 2005 -– Gridlogix, Inc., a leading creator of enabling interoperable Web services technology announced today that it is the recipient of RealComm’s Digie Award for Most Innovative Technology for the Building Automation industry. Annually for the past seven years, Realcomm recognizes leaders of innovation in the Commercial Real Estate industry with its prestigious Digie Award. This year’s winner, Gridlogix, exemplifies the continued innovation that is taking place in the building automation industry and further advances the creation of “smart buildings.”

“Finding fast changing, exciting, yet tactical new technology is not difficult. However, every once in a while a new idea, technology, concept, comes along that has industry changing potential. It will change the way we work and play dramatically and possibly without us even noticing. The Commercial Real Estate Technology sector over the last couple of years has grown to new heights and is beginning to understand what technology can mean to an inefficient industry. This award focuses on those technologies that will dramatically change the way we live, work and play and ultimately the way we use space”, explains Jim Young, Founder and Producer, Realcomm.

Gridlogix was selected for the Digie Award for its role in the real-time integration of building automation systems with Property Management applications for the Belmar project, a 103-acre mixed-use redeveloped by Continuum Partners in downtown Lakewood, Colorado.

By deploying EnNET®, Gridlogix’s XML Web service middleware application, it allowed the creation of a “utility style” automated meter reading system. The system automatically captures meter readings from the BACnet control network and integrates this real-time information with Yardi Systems’ Voyager property management system. Thereby, providing a direct link between the data from the energy meters and the tenant information maintained in the Yardi Voyager application.

Immediate benefits to the customer include timely and accurate energy consumption information integrated with tenant records and billing information. In addition to, faster billing by property managers to ensure timely and accurate payment by tenants upon move-out. Longer-term benefits include improved tenant relations and reduced energy costs through management’s analysis of real-time energy usage information.
