If You Like Lon — You will Love Loytec. We focus so much on BACnet these days that we sometimes forget about Lon. We still come across lots of government jobs that use Lon as their preferred network. One of the best kept secrets when it comes to Lon controls, is a company called Loytec. As you can see in this video, they make quality controllers and accessories. We have had very good success at Stromquist & Company with Loytec, and can speak very highly of the brand.
