Bernhard Connect® is Bernhard’s proprietary, cloud-based platform for automatic fault detection, measurement and verification, and continuous data collection and archival. The platform provides advanced levels of monitoring and control, pushing the boundaries of existing traditional applications. Using Connect, Bernhard’s Energy-as-a-Service solutions are streamlined more than ever, resulting in greater energy and operational efficiencies for our customers.
The idea to develop our own independent platform began with a desire to execute advanced engineering techniques at a large scale. Other software packages simply couldn’t produce results at Bernhard’s high-quality standards, and manual techniques weren’t scalable enough to use efficiently on large projects like Energy-as-a-Service. Connect has broad application across all of our professional services, has been implemented as a core component for our EaaS projects, and is also available for application in non-EaaS projects.
Streamlined Data At Your Fingertips
The real-time cloud processing power of Connect provides data in a centralized hub, giving facility owners and staff direct access to energy and performance analytics with the push of a button. To enhance user experience, the platform offers multiple views of energy usage and equipment operation data that can be shown from an entire system perspective, for one building, or even drilled down to one data point.
By harnessing the power of Connect, each user obtains a customizable gateway into the most impactful data analysis for their facility to operate at its peak.

How Connect Works For You
Bernhard Data Collection Device is securely installed within existing Building Automation System networks to collect massive amounts of equipment performance data. Once the data has been received, it begins processing within Connect’s highly scalable data pipeline which is able to perform millions of real-time calculations on incoming data. This device is the foundation of Bernhard’s energy, analysis, and automated fault detection systems.
Connect receives data from outside sources such as third-party hardware, utility websites, client databases, manual entry, and automated data collection processes. The ability to automate these data collection processes allows for seamless integration with existing workflows without disruption to operations.
Connect enables direct access to the data that is most important and useful for fully transparent analysis. Our Energy Engineers continually analyze data trends to identify operational issues. If an issue is identified, they will work with the facility management staff to troubleshoot the problem until it is resolved.
