Johnson Controls Earns Award for Building Efficiency System


Based on its recent analysis of the building automation system (BAS) controls industry, research firm Frost & Sullivan recognized Johnson Controls with its 2009 North American Market Leadership of the Year Award.

In making the announcement, Frost & Sullivan said Johnson Controls’ flagship Metasys building management system “embodies the company’s core competencies and high standards of technical innovation.”

The Metasys system provides customers with a set of comprehensive tools to improve building efficiency, maximize cost savings and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

With parallel advancements in building controls and the IT realm, technologies such as remote monitoring and diagnostics, real-time management and predictive maintenance of buildings are experiencing unprecedented demand, according to the research firm.

“Johnson Controls also offers a complete line of integrated controllers and equipment for lighting, fire and life safety, physical security, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC),” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Jorge Moreno. “A unified approach to encompass HVAC and lighting and access controllers enables facilities to integrate and easily adapt to ever changing operational scenarios, as well as add third-party vendor systems.”

The Metasys line of supervisory controllers support the operations of a wide variety of building systems, including monitoring, control, and management of information flow across the network, as well as functions as Web servers for publishing Web pages to be viewed over the Internet.

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents the award to a company that has exhibited market share leadership through the implementation of market strategy. The recipient has displayed excellence in all areas of the market leadership process, including the identification of market challenges, drivers and restraints, as well as strategy development and methods of addressing these market dynamics.
