Release of Metasys 10.0 marks new milestone to maximise value of entire buildings portfolio since Johnson Controls - Tyco merger
SINGAPORE, Dec. 19, 2018 – Johnson Controls, the global diversified technology and multi-industrial leader, today announced the release of Metasys 10.0, designed to deliver unified building management. This marks another major milestone since the merger between Johnson Controls and Tyco, bringing the power of its combined portfolio to the market. This latest Metasys release provides facility personnel with smarter building automation, faster responses to critical alarms and new integrations with fire detection, and security and lighting systems—all with visibility from a single common interface.
Another innovation is the Ethernet ring topology support. Metasys is the only building automation system in the market that offers this. Delivered as part of Johnson Controls strategic alliance with Cisco, it allows controllers to be configured in a ring network, avoiding risk of single point of failure, thus improving system reliability and resiliency. This is especially important in mission-critical facilities like hospitals and data centres.
“As a systems integrator for building smarter buildings and cities, we deeply appreciate how important it is to provide access to critical system data from a single, intuitively-designed interface. Metasys has always delivered a strong integrations platform, but it is even easier now for customers to integrate both HVAC and non-HVAC systems into Metasys 10.0. One of the earliest sites seeing great success is Georgia-Pacific in Atlanta,” said Ken Lim, general manager, Building Technologies & Solutions, Johnson Controls Singapore.
Johnson Controls’ solutions and products are installed in more than 40 per cent of commercial buildings in Singapore including those requiring the most complex integrations.
Improvements with the release of Metasys 10.0 include:
- New Metasys Application Programming Interface (API) – API enables data to be securely extracted from Metasys 10.0 and integrated with third-party data visualization tools for robust data analysis and reporting.
- New integrations with CCURE 9000 Access Control and victor Video Management Systems – New integration drivers are added to the Metasys system to provide data from CCURE 9000 Access Control and victor Video Management Systems from Tyco Security Products.
- Simpler integrations with lighting systems from leading lighting providers – LED lighting and sensor networks from preferred partners are tightly integrated with the Metasys system to coordinate lighting behaviors with HVAC operation.
