It benefits all to share a customer experience as everyone can use documented testimonials. If you have a potential case study, we would like to work with you to develop and promote it.

With all the conversation about the 3-30-300 metrics and Ken Sinclair’s thoughts on the humanization of buildings and the new ways occupants and buildings will interact, it was interesting when I came across this article from the team at Blue Ridge Technologies (published in the recent edition of the BACnet International Journal). I think you will find the article gives testament to the theories Ken and the rest of the smart buildings control community have been discussing, and hopefully will give you ideas on how to capitalize on this emerging trend.
As you’ve heard from previous communications, Homes and ADI Global Distribution will be spinning off from Honeywell to become an independent company. We expect the spin to be completed by the end of 2018.
Many of you have been wondering how we’ll continue to deliver on the heritage and reliability of a great brand like Honeywell and have asked what will the brand become after the spin. In this letter, I’m excited to share with you the new corporate name of the Homes business, how we will go to market using the Honeywell name and a little background on the development of the name.
In a global town hall with our employees today, I shared that our new company will be named Resideo. You can learn more at resideo.com, which includes a video about the name but first let me give you some of the concepts behind the name.
Resideo is drawn from the combination of the words “residence” and “presidio.”
Residence: a person’s home; the place where someone lives
Presidio: A fortress
Together, these bring about thoughts of safety, comfort, security, strength, reliability and trust – in a combined word that expresses our identity as a technology company. These are timeless messages that are core to the Resideo business, as they express our focus on the home and our commitment to keeping the users of our products safe and secure.
I’m also excited to announce that while Resideo will be our corporate name, known by our employees and shareholders, for you, our key customers, we have also put together a long-term licensing agreement with Honeywell for use of the Honeywell brand. So, the products that our customers have known and loved for more than 100 years, and around which many of you have built your businesses, will be around for a long time to come.
I look forward to working together and I am excited about our endless possibilities for shared success.
Michael G. Nefkens
President and CEO, Resideo

Dear valued partner,
Tridium has released Niagara 4.6, a significant advancement in our open framework. Niagara 4.6 provides fertile ground for developing applications that drive building automation systems forward and help businesses take full advantage of the IoT.
Niagara 4.6 (220.127.116.11.4) follows the internal release of Niagara 4.5, a build used internally for testing and validating technology upgrades found in this newest release.
BENEFITS OF NIAGARA 4.6
Supported by Tridium’s next-generation JACE® 8000 controller*, Niagara 4.6 offers power and potential not seen since the introduction of Niagara 4 in August 2015. Most exciting about Niagara 4.6 is how it modernizes the framework and provides ways for users to save time, effort and money during system installations through:
* Access to a System DB spanning the entire Niagara system
* Visualization enhancements, such as mobile refresh for PX views now with dynamic response
* Tools including bulk tagging and templating that reduce repetitive integration tasks and simplify consistent taxonomy in conformance with Brick, Haystack and other industry standards
Included as part of VYKON’s Niagara 4.6 image, OPC UA 1.0.103 is the updated version of Tridium’s standard open driver for industrial applications. OPC UA 1.0.103 features customer-reported defect fixes and performance improvements. More detail can be found in the release notes.
Another plus of Niagara 4.6 is data encryption on a JACE 8000 or Niagara Supervisor that meets the FIPS 140-2 federal standard. Users can leverage Niagara 4.6 to win contracts for government jobs and pursue opportunities in mission-critical industries such as banking. Be sure to download the new FIPS setup guide and pricing.
*Legacy JACEs are supported by versions up to Niagara 4.4. Compare JACE controller compatibility.
Be ready to offer Niagara 4.6 before Tridium announces the release to the global Niagara Community on July 26:
1. Learn more about Niagara 4.6 by downloading the features overview and release notes.
2. Get familiar with the one breaking change with this release, and operating system (OS) and third-party software compatibility.
4. Plan to join our Niagara 4 experts for a series of informative TridiumTalks to be announced in the coming weeks.
5. When deploying Niagara 4.6, Tridium recommends refreshing your license to pick up the new features added to the Niagara 4 Supervisor parts.
We look forward to joining with you to launch Niagara 4.6 and help users capitalize on the limitless possibilities inherent in an open technology environment.
