Critical Alarm Management

An essential part of your building and business continuity & sustainability plans

Taking your Building Management System (BMS) to the next level. Now is the time to prioritize your building and campus alarms. Ensure that someone on the team is catching the ball.

CALM: Critical Alarm Messenger

How It Works

Once we prioritize the most critical systems, CALM does the rest.

2 mobile screens showing how CALM works.


Communicates through text, phone and email (industry standard is email) — tells you what’s wrong and who to call to fix it.


Establishes a notification tree where facility staff must acknowledge the alarm or it’s escalated to the next individual on the list.


Archives alarm history and notification tracking, available through cloud-based website for analysis and reporting purposes.


Quarterly meeting with you and your team to review the Calm Analytics Dashboard and address patterns with your most frequent alarms.

Who uses it

A consumer products company with a multi-use, multi-building business campus uses CALM (previously known as MDAS) to monitor critical building systems and notify building management of issues.

How it works

One system monitored in its product manufacturing and testing facility is the chiller supporting a deionized water system, which support processes like reverse osmosis, ultraviolet disinfection, and water quality monitoring.

Why it’s important

Unplanned system downtime can lead to weeks of product testing delays and up to $40,000 in de-sanitation expenses. CALM notifications and acknowledgments prevent significant loss.

Building systems will fail. And as building managers, engineers and maintenance teams, it always seems to happen at 2 AM on weekends and holidays. CALM can give you peace of mind and ensure that someone on the team is catching the ball.
