Environmental Controls

Stay Late. Stay comfortable.

Now tenants can schedule after-hours HVAC within their leased space using cohesion. Don’t let too-hot and too-cold calls make your engineering staff too-busy to take care of critical maintenance issues. In-app temperature controls allow tenants to adjust the temperature setpoint at the zone level with predesignated approval workflows. 

  • HVAC Scheduling +Controls 
    Having tenants request extended HVAC scheduling hours within their leased space is simple with Cohesion. A simple, automated service request is all thaye need. Associated information for invoicing is automatically generated. 
    Responding to tenants’ too hot or too cold requests can now be automated. Quick changes to temperature setpoint at the zone level are available with a tap, with predesignated approval workflows.
  • IAQ Monitoring  
    Using integrated sensors, we let you monitor real-time air quality based on various pollutants including TVOCs, particulates, and CO2. 
  • IAQ Optimization 
    Should measures of any monitored pollutant rise above acceptable levels, we actively adjust indoor air quality (IAQ) to optimize tenant comfort through direct integrations to the BAS/ BMS system. 

Touchless Access Control

Touch-Free, Curb to Desk

Walk into the building, tap your phone and walk to your elevator.  Simple.  

Making that happen?  Not so simple. Making that happen regardless of brand, and better than brand?  That’s Really Smart. 

Add and delete cardholders and automatically sync both the system and the reader automatically?  No problem.   

Tell me which elevator to go to, even when the lobby is crowded, and I’m not standing in front of a piece of hardware?  That’s a LOT smarter.   

Built for Integration and Ease of Use

We make entering the building fast and delightful, giving buildings a differentiated arrival experience that reduces touch points and elevates the everyday tasks of keying in and calling an elevator with best-in-class smart controls. 

We sense when you’re close and ready the app opens doors and paves the way–no need to open the app, or reawaken it.  And we don’t use relay boxes or kiosks to hide gaps in our tech.  Ever. With Cohesion, occupants enjoy a fully mobile, touchless, and flawless arrival experience.   

  • Mobile Keycard
    With a simple one-touch setup, users with clearance use their smartphones at key card readers equipped with Bluetooth/NFC radios that are provided by the customer 
  • Unified Mobile Keycard
    Cohesion works with tenant access control administrators to synchronize our mobile credentials with their system for truly seamless access
  • Visitor Access  
    Building visitors are VIPs to the tenants that invite them.  Whether it is scheduling high stakes job candidates or taking delivery of the daily donut fix, the visitor management process reflects not only on the building but on the tenants themselves.  Cohesion gives you an end-to-end visitor management platform that makes the process of inviting and receiving visitors seamless and user-centric.  
  • Visitor Management
    With Cohesion’s access control integrations, visitors enjoy prompt arrival instructions and day-of QR code credentials that show the world that your buildings offer digital amenities to all building occupants.
  • Elevator Call  
    Via direct integration to the elevator management system, occupants seamlessly request elevators via their mobile device   

Digital Operations

  • Vendor Management  
    Vendor management processes in most buildings are fragmented and manual.  Websites, emails, file software, and spreadsheets control most building and vendor information.  Smart buildings leverage Cohesion to digitize processes like document management and vendor visit scheduling and COI management. 
    It’s a powerful yet simple way to let tenants know which vendors are approved to work in the building, and spend less time chasing COIs and more time engaging with tenants  
  • Service Requests  
    Things break. Things spill. Rooms go hot and cold. We get it, but your tenants don’t.  Fast and easy service request submission and resolution are critical to driving tenant satisfaction.   Cohesion offers a fully native service request and preventative maintenance platform that lets owners and operators run their maintenance teams effectively to reduce costly failure events and ensure tenant satisfaction.  For buildings that want to keep their full CMMS platform in place, Cohesion integrates to make the service request is always process simple for tenants.  
  • Documents  
    Designated users upload and manage documents by category. Documents are permission-based— share with tenants, with specific roles, or reserved for management-only. Track and associate critical documents such as contracts, warranties, and Certificates of Insurance directly to assets, or vendors.
  • Roles & Permissions  
    Building management staff manage role creation, and designated tenants can manage their individual users according to their needs.
    Access to every part of our platform and every space in your building is customizable. Grant permissions and access to building resources, systems, and platform features.
  • Asset Inventory  
    Cohesion Digital Twin technology makes it easier than ever to automatically inventory and document every device on your network, map them, assign values like manufacturer, model, and maintenance status, and associate that hardware with the building’s corresponding physical space. Staff can view the list of BACnet-enabled devices, rename devices, and search for specific devices.
  • Payments  
    Digital workflows make controlling payments easy.  Amenity Reservations, service requests, bike parking, and any other payable items flow through Cohesion to drive your ancillary revenue.
  • Preventative Maintenance + Inspections * 
    Generate a custom maintenance protocol and schedule tied to specific assets. Create form-based inspection routines assigned to specific assets or equipment, complete with photo documentation—all within the platform.

Community/Social

  • Transit + Food + Nearby  
    Whether by car, train, rideshare, or bicycle, the Cohesion platform helps tenants plan their commute and enjoy a welcoming end-of-trip experience.  Users can check all local available modes of public transportation, and bike riders can travel with confidence that their access to the bike storage room will be automatically updated in their mobile key.  The commute can be hard, but cohesion makes planning and completing it simple.

Reservations

Cohesion’s reservations management technology enables operations and tenant management teams to work together to create that great experience for all building occupants. When operations staff know in advance who they’ll be serving, how large the reservation will be, and what amenity is being reserved, they can delight and create an overall amazing experience, not to mention make their own workflows seamless and error free. 

  • Amenities  
    Building amenities are a critical part of driving engagement and creating a culture of hospitality and hosting.  The Cohesion Amenity platform makes scheduling and managing events a truly delightful experience, activating amenities and optimizing revenue and operations teams.  We make payment easy, with multiple options for payments and approval workflows to fit every building’s needs.

FAQ

Our goal is to come into a building, work with your system providers, work with your hard-ware in the building, and make recommendations on trusted providers where you may have questions. Once we go through that process we will then be able to integrate all those things into our platform, so your transition to a smart building has very low capital intensity and is about adding that functionality for your team. We work directly with providers, our team does the integrations, we control the timeline, we control the User Experience, which means you get the best possible outcomes through those integrations.

We are always communicating directly with the integrated system via the interface that is provided by the integrator – API or direct to database. Cohesion’s integrations do not rely on writing a flat file for EDI communication with a system.
