FIN has been developed as an easy-to-configure and use software platform for building automation and IoT applications. The KNX connector software module can read KNX project files and present the KNX points/group addresses available in an installation inside the FIN open platform. Automatic configuration allows the seamless integration and supervision of KNX components and other devices and systems using different protocols. The FIN Framework acts as the global system controller and/or building automation supervisor.

“From lighting, HVAC, shutters, intruder alarms, and audio-visual systems to energy management and control, metering, monitoring systems; there have been a myriad of manufacturers that have developed KNX devices for building control applications,” says Matteo Pierone, Director of Professional Services EMEA at J2 Innovations. “Native KNX integration within a single management platform will remove a significant engineering overhead for OEM developers who routinely integrate multiple buildings protocols within complex BMS systems.”

Pierone continues: “When compared with many of today’s KNX-specific controllers for commercial applications, FIN Framework offers users a major upgrade in supervisory and system control; offering a more powerful and richer feature-set for monitoring, scheduling, alarming, visualization, analytics and IoT functionality.”

FIN features a comprehensive suite of apps that includes a powerful and flexible graphics editor that provides highly intuitive UI designs. All visualization is HTML5 compliant and fully responsive.

FIN is natively built on tags and supports the latest Project Haystack open standard 4. The platform provides an intuitive user experience, intelligent data-management and analytics, simplified workflows and shares data to Cloud or other IT systems through an IoT interface. The engineering process can be simplified through custom wizards to allow plug & play installation of pre-configured solutions.
