Housing Associations and Social Housing providers who are yet to realise the financial and operational benefits of monitoring a boiler’s health and status remotely are being offered a free trial of a new technology from Vericon Systems – BCM:Connect.

BCM:Connect is an intelligent device that not only monitors a boiler’s condition in real time, but also predicts when it might fail. It enables landlords and M&E providers to plan forward maintenance and/or increase the likelihood of a first-time fix should an engineer be needed on site, while avoiding costly and unexpected failures.

Bernard Cook, Managing Director at Vericon Systems, says his team is offering housing providers a chance to trial the technology at no cost for 90 days and without any future commitment: “We want them to experience first-hand how remote diagnostics and monitoring can significantly reduce the need for engineer call-outs, reduce costs and give tenants a better service.”

BCM:Connect does more than just test or monitor a boiler remotely;  it can also limit and reset the boiler off-site, and even change the heating temperature. Performance data can be recorded and analysed (through a dedicated portal – VS:Connect) to predict and identify common failures such as low pressure, loss of gas and even a frozen condensate pipe. Through integration with external sensors the device can also report environmental concerns such as damp and mould.

The innovative cellular device is easy to fit in under 10 minutes and is simply mounted adjacent to the boiler thus not affecting any boiler warranties or safety qualifications. It connects in the same way as a traditional smart thermostat via GSM without any dependence on an occupants Wi-Fi network, using cellular technology to communicate to the cloud.

Bernard concludes: “BCM:Connect creates greater efficiencies for housing providers, building managers and tenants alike. Preventative maintenance programmes can be put in place that not only save money in the long term, but also ensure legal and regulatory compliance is consistently maintained.

“We have launched this free trial because we want to give social housing providers and other organisations the opportunity to experience these benefits first-hand and evaluate the portfolio-wide potential of connected boiler control without risk.”

The 90-day trial includes five BCM:Connect devices, unlimited access to the VS:Connect Portal, and full product training and support for the duration. To find out more, download an application pack or visit www.vericonsystems.com/bcmconnect
