Getting started with DEXMA Detect

What is DETECT? You will find out in this article:

Introduction to DETECT

The Platform includes three different products: Detect, Analyse and Optimise.


Detect is considered as the first step in energy efficiency journey: a savings detection tool. It determines which buildings among your portfolio offer the greatest potential for savings and what technologies they can use to be more competitive.

Detect analyses each of your buildings comparing them against similar buildings in our database, associating a mark (or grade) between 0 and 100 to each of them. Buildings with a mark close to 0 indicate a great potential for savings while those close to 100 are considered efficient buildings.

All this process does not need the installation of meters or any type of hardware.

  • Obtain a virtual disaggregation of each building's consumption in order to better understand their consumption without investing in sub-metering hardware.
  • Discover the energy efficiency measures that would better suit your buildings, depending on their current consumption and conditions.
