Computrols Building Automation Software (CBAS) is the simplest building automation system software to install, program, maintain, and operate. From its inception, CBAS was built with the end user in mind, enabling facility managers to make changes to their systems without the guidance of a trained technician. This approach has all but eliminated the need for our customers to carry hefty maintenance contracts like those required by many of Computrols’ competitors.
CBAS is designed to control and monitor HVAC, lighting, access, and fire alarm systems. As with all of our products, Computrols’ research and development team is continually bringing new advancements to CBAS with the goal of making the job of the facility manager as easy as possible. Many of the features in the software today have come from minds of our most innovative customers.
Auto-tuning PID Control Loops
No need to grind over calculations to make sure you don’t overshoot setpoints. The decisions are made for you.
English Language If/Then Logic
No codes to memorize. As the needs of your facility change, it’s simple to program CBAS. An example of this logic might be “if outside air temperature is greater than 85 degrees, then start chiller.”
CBAS offers three viewing options: hardware view, text view, and graphics view. Each offers a unique and thorough view of your system as a whole.
CBAS comes equipped with an Internet protocol (TCP/IP) that can be used for controlling your system from anywhere in the world. TCP/IP also allows for networking multiple workstations.
Use custom passwords to ensure the integrity of vital data. This also provides the system administrator with a complete list of lockouts to choose from.
Allows the head end to upload all information to the controllers. This enables the controller to be truly stand-alone.
Having the ability to access your BAS via your mobile devices and desktop computers can be invaluable for engineers and facility managers on the move. CBAS Web gives you access anywhere, anytime.
Your tenants can utilize CBAS Web’s user-friendly interface for overtime air and tenant billing. This feature automates the entire process, automatically sending invoices to property managers at the end of the month to be distributed to their tenants.
Unlimited History for All Points
Rather than having to set up trends, CBAS allows you to record histories on all of your points, all of the time, from the inception of the Computrols system. Your only limitation is hard drive space.
Real-time Energy Dashboards
We know you don’t have time to dig into your energy usage on a daily basis, so CBAS Web gives you a quick, visually appealing view at the points that matter most to you.

Click to Zoom automatically generate after hours billing invoices with the click of a button.
This easy-to-use invoicing system can also be set up to include variable rates by the tenant and the associated taxes that may be required by your city or state. By providing an automated billing system, Computrols ensures accurate billing and the elimination of lost revenue.
In our experience, we have found that overtime requests increase by more than 10% when upgrading to a web-based platform. This system will effectively increase tenant satisfaction, reduce operating costs, and likely increase revenue.
You Own The System
Perhaps the most appealing feature of CBAS Web for building owners and managers is the one-time cost. Instead of charging an ongoing monthly fee for the hosting of our software, our customers own their web server and have no recurring costs for using the platform. This means after hours billing will start paying for itself immediately!
