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.
Johnson Controls will continue a 20-year relationship with Colorado State University-Pueblo through a recent contract that enhances sustainability efforts through an improved infrastructure and a reduction in energy demands without capital expenditures.
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.
The St. Louis Area Foodbank has significantly improved its operations, including reduced costs and energy savings, with the recently installed Verasys™ controls system by Johnson Controls.
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).
Used in conjunction with a traditional cooling tower, a hybrid cooling system offers a way to not only reduce environmental impact, but also lower operating costs and increase the resiliency of critical operations.

As data becomes more and more prevalent throughout the buildings where we live and work, so does the need to protect that data. “It is no longer enough for a building to be smart – it must now be cybersmart,” according to a new whitepaper published jointly by Johnson Controls and Booz Allen Hamilton, a management and technology consulting and engineering firm.
The YORK® brand of Johnson Controls will continue its sponsorship of Building Homes for Heroes® through 2017 and provide veterans with home heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems.
