BCM allows bi-directional communication, through the Bus port with the boiler no matter the manufacturer or model. It records and sends intelligent data to Connect, Vericon's cloud services.
Real time Monitoring
BCM talks to the boiler every 2 seconds so when a fault condition occurs it can send the details immediately. Normal telemetry is collated and regularly sent to Connect where it can be viewed by our clients, interrogated for potential faults and analysed for efficiency.
BCM is easily installed in just 5 minutes as part of a service call or gas safety test. Other than power, the BCM requires a 2 wire cable from Bus connection of the boiler. The installation will guide the engineer through the physical connection and then manage the rest of the commissioning process itself.
System Management Features
BCM also has a range of control features for clients and engineers alike to simplify the system’s ongoing management.
Investing in the Future
With Connect, and the Ecosystem, we enable clients to Monitor, Manage and Maintain their housing portfolio while reducing cost, person-to-person contact and their carbon footprint whilst improving efficiencies and remaining fully compliant.
What they're saying
Vericon's BCM device provides real-time fault notifications, as well as no-fault notifications which gives us full visibility of the boiler status. The ability to remotely diagnose issues and pre-order the necessary parts to put them right has enabled us to achieve a 99% first-time fix rate on the trial.
Head of Innovation
Like most businesses, the pandemic has had a big impact on our workforce, stopping us from physically sending engineers and maintenance staff out to sites, and forcing us to review our processes, and adopting new technologies like EmeRed. Some of our properties are in remote locations, so eliminating unnecessary travel has been a particularly important saving.

The Automated SMS Helpdesk
EmeRed can be installed and commissioned on to any luminaire in under 10 minutes and will carry out tests over the next ten years and beyond.
Secure Mesh Network
EmeRed, along with other Vericon devices, utilise ZigBee technology. ZigBee creates a self-healing mesh network to cover an entire building and ensure connectivity.
Using Vericon's portal, test schedules can be set per device allowing for staggered testing in a single building, ensuring compliance with BS5266.
Automatic Failure Reporting
The EmeRed will automatically send all test results to Vericon Connect which will then notify specified users to any failed lamps or those requiring preventative maintenance.
