Tuesday Morning was looking for a solution that would work across all of its small retail stores, was cost efficient and worked with their existing hardware. While a full energy management system (EMS) would require a full replacement of the existing systems, Tuesday Morning wanted a more practical solution for its smaller footprint stores. Tuesday Morning needed something that would give them remote visibility and control for lighting and HVAC and with the ability to set schedules across all locations.
FSG Smart Buildings designed a solution that worked with Tuesday Morning’s existing hardware and provided the insight they were looking for. Using Zigbee technology, FSG Smart Buildings used a custom gateway solution to work with existing Zigbee smart thermostats and switches at 17 Tuesday Morning locations. With all of those devices talking to each other through one protocol in a Zigbee gateway, Tuesday Morning could set schedules for all of those stores through the Chariot platform, allowing Tuesday Morning to create and duplicate their store schedules for all of their locations, making the solution scalable for every store. The custom solution allowed Tuesday Morning to save on energy usage and provided visibility and control.
