Our ControlTrends interview with KMC’s VP of Business Development, Scott Taylor, at the vendor show at the 2018 Realcomm|IBcon Conference was a great opportunity to hear the latest from KMC Controls, who offers one of the industry’s most comprehensive array of options that allow contractors to use the right-sized and right-priced software tool, namely, the KMC Commander, for small to mid-sized buildings. And, as Scott says, “Our industry is evolving and we are seeing innovations where contractors are leasing connectivity (in lieu of traditional service contracts) that embed the contractor with their customers, while generating recurring revenue.”
ControlTrends joined Distech’s Ryan Sen, Director, Customer Experience, and Charles Pelletier, Global Product Manager, at the 2018 Realcomm|IBcon vendors exhibit to get a firsthand demonstration of Distech’s new UniTouch APP, which truly gives the occupant total control of their space — using their Bluetooth connected mobile device to control their temperature setting, lighting/dimming preference, fan speed, CO2 reading, blind positioning, and scene selection — all from the palm of their hand!

As Honeywell adds new and improved controllers to their product portfolio, they need to let older products go. So heads up: the W7752G 2000 Lonmark Fan Coil unit is being discontinued. If you need some of these reach out to your local Honeywell authorized distributor to buy any inventory they might have. A better option would be to have your local Honeywell distributor recommed a good replacement controller. Although, I found many of these on eBay, I would steer clear of that option ( no warranty, no tech support, and you have no idea were the controller has been). As my dad use to say, “trouble cost more than quality”.
Click here to get a current spec and installation sheet on the W7752G 2000.,
Stay tuned to ControlTrends for special announcements regarding the Honeywell Momentum Conference next year in Orlando.

Hi Guys, we just came out with a great new application data sheet for VRF and making those buildings smarter. Check it out, we elevate the VRF buildings and help consultants and contractors get more scope of work.
Variable Refrigeration Flow (VRF) has become very prevalent in recent years as an efficient and effective HVAC technology. This technology dramatically changes the market for those accustomed to installing controllers on equipment like AHU, FCU, VAV, chiller and boiler plant and other traditional equipment requiring control.
This reduced scope has the effect of reducing the market size for traditional controls and making the competition even more fierce. The situation is further exacerbated by factory mounted controls, making even the simplest integration an unappealing controls project.
At Optergy we would like to help you get more scope on projects using our combined Energy + Building Management +Tenant Afterhours & Utility Billing software. The products we built will help you find new and exciting ways to engage with your buildings especially if they have VRF. The time saving workflow coupled with new features will help you become a premiere Smart Building Integrator.
Check out our amazing new VRF application data sheet that you can use to inform your consultants/contractors/customers with a compelling feature set that will make your VRF buildings use Smart Energy Monitoring & Control feature set. Supercharge your service sales with a great story to get more scope.
The next time you sit down for coffee with one of your customers, leaf through this guide, to explore how smart your building can be.

MQTT in EasyIO controllers
Our controllers (the FS-32 and the FW-series) will be equipped with the MQTT V3.1 protocol. But, what is it?
MQTT stands for MQ Telemetry Transport. It is a publish/subscribe, extremely simple and lightweight messaging protocol, designed for constrained devices and low-bandwidth, high-latency or unreliable networks. The design principles are to minimise network bandwidth and device resource requirements whilst also attempting to ensure reliability and some degree of assurance of delivery.
These principles also turn out to make the protocol ideal of the emerging “machine-to-machine” (M2M) or “Internet of Things” world of connected devices, and for mobile applications where bandwidth and battery power are at a premium.
Two new EasyIO offices in the UK
In line with strategic plans, EasyIO is opening two new offices in the UK. We want to support the growth of both our partner network and our continued success in end user specification there.
An announcement of the new General Manager will be made in the near future. Additional resources for technical support and training are being sort now, and we will be introducing the new team shortly. EasyIO is heavily focused on customer satisfaction, and we will make all the steps necessary to support the success we are now seeing in the UK market. If you have any comments or ideas on how we can improve how we work with you, then please contact us.
New website launched
Our website had a makeover. It is now easier to navigate and we’ve added a partner section. This section is going to be a one stop shop to find manuals, firmware, sales and marketing materials and much, much more. We are now testing and fine tuning it and it will soon be accessible. In the next few weeks, partners will receive instructions on how to login. www.easyio.eu

Blue Ridge Technologies‘ CEO, Bill Dunkleberger, explains some of the chief benefits of Unified Lighting Control: One network, one service provider, and one front end — lighting control from the network’s user interface down to each zone. Bill and his team provide a very powerful and easy to use lighting solution. Unified Lighting Control completes the BAS, incorporating lighting and HVAC controls on the same network. This network consolidation eliminates surplus hardware required for stand-alone and gateway lighting control. As a result, installation and maintenance costs decrease, while simple and complete building control increases energy savings.
