Princeton University covers nine million square feet, with more than 190 buildings, almost 1,000 Ethernet devices, and 15 BACnet vendors. This massive, complex building network was experiencing issues that could not be ignored. Visual BACnet helped to quickly pinpoint the source of network problems and improve system conditions.
For weeks, Princeton’s football stadium lights would suddenly turn
on in the middle of the night. Each time, these blazing lights would wake up residents on campus. Controls engineer Gary Brancato would get a phone call at 1 a.m., and his staff would have to drive down to reset panels and turn off the lights. This kept happening sporadically, and Gary could not figure out the root of the recurring issue. They needed help, and they found it with Visual BACnet.
