Use the following workflow checklist to transfer an existing Navigator customer to Building X Energy Manager.

It is possible to reuse the already installed connectivity means. When signing up and activating a license in the Accounts application, it is important to link the newly created customers in Building X to an existing customer in Navigator. By doing this, you ensure that data can be exchanged and managed centrally.

Following the customer creation and linkage, it is required to create sites using the Data Setup application. Furthermore, data points must be added, the respective location and meter structure created, and meter properties defined. Finally, it is required to apply the correct settings for Energy Manager to show data.

Recommended browsers to use for the engineering activities are:

  • Google Chrome and other chromium-based browsers
  • Mozilla Firefox
