Making Even More Buildings Smarter

Siemens company J2 Innovations has unveiled entry-level building management system solution, FIN microBMS, which is targeted at OEM installers working with operators of multiple sites with small to mid-sized buildings.


The entry-level FIN-based system is a powerful simple-to-use plug-and-play solution for efficient building management that has removed much of the complexity and cost found in many of today’s BMSs from building control specialists. 

Users can monitor, control and visualize all the operational and energy assets such as HVAC, lighting and security systems inside a building or buildings across numerous sites to optimize the comfort levels, safety and energy efficiency.  A dashboard flags the status or health as well as maintenance requirements of all the connected devices while trend monitoring and utility metering are reported by the system.  Plug & play simplifies the installation of any preconfigured hardware solutions.

Natively built for tags and support for the Project Haystack 4 open standard FIN provides an intuitive user-experience with intelligent data-management, analytics and simplified workflows. J2’s latest Edge2Cloud capability provides operators with a secure remote connection to the Micro BMS for accessing building data, servicing and upgrading of the system.

Jeremy Wolfe, VP Sales Americas at J2 Innovations, explains:

“The driving force behind the development our first FIN microBMS had been the obvious lack of options in the market for managing smaller scale building environments.

“This isn’t a pared-down version that has compromised on functionality, the power of FIN Framework delivers a fully-featured versatile solution that is simple enough for installers [non-specialists] to configure and use yet offers high levels of automation and integration – engineered properly, the best things do come in small packages.”

Chris Irwin, VP Sales EMEA, adds: “The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) has boosted the energy performance of buildings across the EU and recent amendments have now made BACS mandatory for certain-sized buildings i.e. in the small-medium and simple category.  The FIN microBMS meets the requirement of providing more sophisticated automation to help save energy and money.

“In the future all commercial buildings will be connected with intelligent controls.  This shift towards smarter controls makes the FIN microBMS ideal for multi-site operators or electrical and mechanical contractors working on small retail premises, restaurants, local authorities, small offices and leisure sites.”
