Latest Release of Johnson Controls’ Metasys Boosts Productivity, Helps Protect Against Cyber Threats

JC MetasysMILWAUKEE, Wis. – Johnson Controls introduces Metasys 8.0, the latest in building automation system enhancements for ease of use, faster troubleshooting, less time on task, reduced risk and easier integrations.

Metasys leads the way with advanced BAS technology, providing essential instrumentation and control to save energy, lower operational costs and enable efficient and secure operations.

Among the system’s key enhancements are graphics available across multiple mobile devices, alarm management that enables alarm prioritization for improved productivity, and improved scheduling and custom trending that save time and ease troubleshooting. Additionally, new reporting features make it easier to access trends, alarms, audits and scheduling data. Tenant-based users will also appreciate spaces authorization, which allows them to access the system and see only the data they need.

Metasys 8.0 builds upon features introduced in December 2014 with Metasys 7.0, which included a new mobile-optimized, easy-to-use interface that displayed information by building spaces.

The system follows industry and government best practices, including added information technology security with secure password management as well as dormant user account reporting. The reporting helps prevent unauthorized access with the ability to identify unused accounts that need to be shut down. Metasys also provides support for BACnet Protocol Revision 12 on engines for interoperability between Metasys and BACnet Testing Laboratories-listed third-party BACnet devices, making Metasys more open and easy to integrate than ever.
