Unlocking Big Data Potential for Software Developers to Create and Market New Building Efficiency Applications

A Panoptix® solution spurs developer activity and launches new online marketplace

We're connecting big data with big ideas.


Our new Panoptix® software development community provides building data, tools and support to developers to create and market new applications that address energy efficiency, sustainability and operations.

 “This open platform allows developers to do what they do best - create applications," said Laura Farnham, vice president, building technology and service, Johnson Controls.  "As a result, building owners and facility managers will have access to a growing list of choices to manage their facilities.”


Five initial partner-developed applications will be available for purchase in the new Panoptix marketplace, which provides a global venue to sell applications to building owners and operators. These include apps from EnergyAi, Lucid Design Group, EnergyPoints, FirstFuel and T4G. 


 “Panoptix allowed us to go deeper with customer solutions by letting us focus on what we do with the information, rather than how we get the information,” said Michael Murray, CEO, Lucid Design. “Panoptix allowed us to pull data from many different sites and different systems, not just Johnson Controls but others as well, through a common API. That eases the costs associated with system integration, and that means more of our resources, and frankly more of the customers’ resources, go into delivering value instead of into system integration.”


The Panoptix solution builds upon Johnson Controls’ expertise in building technologies and systems integration to help building owners and operators achieve improved building performance and energy efficiency.  It is a combination of software and services to help single building owners or managers of global enterprises improve the performance of their buildings, decrease energy use and operational costs, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.  It is driven by cloud-based apps that offer visibility into how every system, subsystem and device is functioning, and provides information to take actions to improve their performance. It works with any size building and any building management system; can be accessed by any computer, tablet or smartphone; and is supported with industry news, an online community and Johnson Controls Live Guide™ expert
