In the 75F BMS system, wireless capabilities are excellent, it's evident from remote control capabilities that are already in place, we are able to access most of the building controls and modify them from the portals.
The Facilisight does provide a little less compared to the Internal support portal, through which one could pretty much do everything that can be done on a CCU in the building but remotely from anywhere.
A further step in the remote capabilities of the portal is the "Remote Installer Options", with the introduction of this feature, the building limits which can be set or modified only via CCU, can now be done remotely from the Internal portal.
It also provides the capability to switch the unit preference for temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius, remotely.

Note: The Celsius toggle enabled will not just reflect the temperature unit as Celsius in that CCU, but also cascades the Celsius as the unit of temperature to all the other CCU's, and the nodal/end devices (HyperStat, SmartNode, HelioNode) paired to the CCU's in that building.
