Smarter Facilities are
DSA’s WatchPost Smart Campus solutions connect people, devices, and applications to improve the efficiency, resilience, and security of multi-building environments.
Intelligent Outage Management
When there’s a failure at your facility, you can’t wait for someone to notice. Intelligent outage management locates and communicates outage locations and simplifies the remediation process.
Central Plant Monitoring
DSA’s WatchPost Central Plant Monitoring solutions provide secure and remote access to operational data from utilities assets which is a key component of situational awareness.
DSA’s WatchPost Energy Management Information System (EMIS) solution is the central platform for all environmental and sustainability monitoring and reporting.
DSA’s WatchPost asset-level digital twins create a virtual representation of an operational system or process. We perform statistical analyses on this virtual model to identify improvement opportunities that can be transferred to the real-life system.
Automated Fault Detection
DSA’s WatchPost Fault Detection and Diagnostics solutions provide analytics that include logic-based rules, regression analyses, and machine learning to identify operational faults across a wide range of facilities and utilities assets.
DSA’s WatchPost data-driven CBM framework advances maintenance practices by leveraging operational data to maximize asset operating time and streamline maintenance operations.
Smart HVAC Scheduling
DSA’s WatchPost smart schedule solution eliminates global schedules by connecting cloud-hosted room reservation tools with building automation systems to deliver energy savings and extend equipment lifetimes.
WatchPost Operations Center
The WatchPost Operations Center is a 24/7 monitoring service that maximizes the availability of your PI System environment. WatchPost includes server & OS monitoring, PI System application monitoring, and continuous cybersecurity vulnerability management.
WatchPost integrates all of your systems into one secure platform. It reduces attack vectors, addresses existing vulnerabilities, and continuously monitors your infrastructure for anomalies and intrusions.

Milwaukee Regional Medical Center Thermal Services
DSA’s WatchPost Operations Center has supported Ever-Green Energy by increasing the reliability of utility service to the six healthcare facilities on the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center campus. Additionally, our PI System-based applications support condition-based asset maintenance, which drive improved labor efficiency and extend equipment lifetimes.
“DSA’s PI System and Cybersecurity Monitoring solution has been particularly valuable to Ever-Green Energy. With DSA’s support, our PI System is now more reliable which improves our ability to efficiently deliver utilities to the MRMC campus of healthcare facilities."Rory Peters, General Manager
Intelligent Classroom Scheduling
Up to 70% of cooling and heating on university campuses is delivered to empty classrooms! Why? Because HVAC systems operate using schedules that cover all possible occupancy scenarios instead of the real dynamic occupancy of the spaces.
DSA’s Intelligent Classroom Scheduling Application connects cloud-hosted classroom schedules to Building Automation Systems, in real-time.
New Mexico State University
For the past 4 years, the DSA organization has been conducting yearly penetration tests and ongoing vulnerability management across 10,000+ disparate assets, at New Mexico State University. Before NMSU’s engagement with DSA, “the university’s third-party auditor rated NMSU’s security at a “D” level. With DSA’s help and the establishment of NMSU’s Cyber Team, the university’s rating has increased significantly, to an “A” rating” per, Carlos Lobato, Chief Security Officer, for the university. DSA proactively keeps abreast of cybersecurity vulnerabilities that are identified on key government and commercial websites; this continuous management is achieved using tools, including the Ivanti Neurons platform. The DSA security program protects commercial and government entities, around the world, with a comprehensive vulnerability solution that allows for reporting, visualization, ticket generation and tracking of all vulnerabilities for the life of the engagement. Importantly to NMSU, the DSA approach was customized to meet their specific needs and restricted for need-to-know and security.
“DSA’s cybersecurity and penetration testing program has established a proven process and road map for the future, not only in securing the school’s OT/IT infrastructure but by protecting our most precious resource, our students and our local community from cyber threats."Carlos Lobato, Chief Security Officer, New Mexico State University
University of Wisconsin-Madison
Working with UW-Madison, DSA's Critical Infrastructure Protection team designed and deployed an AVEVA Pl System to serve as a single historian for the university's three major district energy facilities. The project centralized data from multiple industrial control systems, created a structured asset framework for all physical plant equipment, deployed performance monitoring analytics, and built visualizations to assist with plant operations.
“The DSA Critical Infrastructure Protection team has been an invaluable asset to the University of Wisconsin in designing and deploying the Aveva PI System to serve as a single historian for the university’s three major district energy facilities. From the discovery stage to the completion of the project, their team walked us through the steps for a successful outcome. They took the time to understand our systems, our needs, and our wants and delivered a finished solution that has exceeded our expectations. The PI System is now the central monitoring tool for UW’s Central Plants and has operated without any unscheduled downtime since it was installed.”ADAM GRIFFIN, FACILITIES PLANNING & MANAGEMENT – PHYSICAL PLANT
