    Great to see this website!
    I am a controls tech for a public schools system that has over 168 schools. We work on and maintain several different platforms of controls including: JCI Metasys (from PMI to NAE), JCI FX, ALC, Delta, KMC and Siemens.
    We have every generation from full DDC to DDC over pneumatics to pure pneumatics. So you can see that staying on top of it all is a huge challenge!
    I personally like the FX series quite a bit since I was trained years ago on AX. FX seems much easier to use. I am looking forward to learning much more through your website!

    Just ran into your site. It’s very helpful since I work in the home energy management space. Look forward to reading more stories!

    I came across your podcasts & loved the episode. I saw that you have show notes for the podcast. Just a quick question. Would you like transcriptions for your podcasts?

    As you know it would help with increase audience reach (some people prefer reading to listening, cant listen in office, etc). Also since its original and huge content (1 minute of a podcast generally has 180 words), you can target ranking on Page 1 of Google for various long-tail keywords.

    Would you like a free transcription for your next podcast to check if it adds value?

    Warm Regards,
    Rose Kaz
