The ability to integrate multiple building systems is a foundational capability expected of any building automation system. But what does that really mean? And what kind of integrations capabilities should you expect from today’s BAS? Mark your calendar now for our August 29th webinar on the powerful new integration capabilities coming with the next major Metasys® release.

Survey finds interest and investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy continues to increase globally. Greenhouse gas emissions reduction and energy security are now the largest drivers for investment in the U.S. and Canada.
The new Metasys® 9.0 building automation system from Johnson Controls offers substantial enhancements to the Metasys product line, including two new IP/Ethernet-based controllers and user interface (UI) features that make finding critical information and resolving issues easier than ever.
Today, we are creating “living buildings” that pull together disparate systems in order to ignite the true potential inside. We are actually designing building infrastructure that can learn, advance and evolve. The places where we live, work and travel will be able to continually adapt, improve and optimize. A living building does not only make its own systems smarter – it makes society smarter as well.
Americans spend up to 90 percent of their time inside, making indoor air quality and lighting critical to their health, comfort and productivity. A study led by Piers MacNaughton from Harvard University supports this claim, reporting that green-certified buildings can improve occupant health and cognitive function.
Even as states face budget shortfalls, education obligations continue to grow. Christopher Lehmann, director of K-12 at Johnson Controls, looks at ways school districts are employing Building Wide System Integration to improve learning environments, increase security and ensure energy savings.
While 70 percent of the world’s population is expected to live in cities by 2050, how are cities preparing to make the required infrastructure investments to create a thriving municipal brand? This is an important question, especially as cities compete with one another for resources and investment, not just within their states but across the country and even the world.
Today’s buildings are smart, but – that’s not enough; they need to be cybersmart. As with many other technological advances driven by human nature, the building controls industry has opened new doors for users – energy management, decreased costs, interoperability and more. But the investments in cyber-secure building systems have lagged by comparison.
This must change.
Johnson Controls is helping create a green and energy efficient campus for General Electric’s Beijing Technology Park. It has successfully applied Johnson Controls’ advanced building technologies and solutions and achieved 20% annual operating cost reduction (approximately US$300,000 in energy savings annually).
