Dear VYKON Partner,
Tridium has issued a software patch for a recently discovered technical issue affecting VYKON Enterprise Security Supervisors that use an MSSQL database.
When updating these VYKON Enterprise Security Supervisors to version 22.214.171.124, the update does not complete, and the MSSQL database is rendered unusable.
Please note that this issue does not affect new installations of 126.96.36.199, and VYKON Enterprise Security Supervisors installed with a MySQL database are not affected.
Should you have an affected VYKON Enterprise Security Supervisor, there are two ways to obtain the software patch. Niagara Community login will be required.
The entsec.jar file has been uploaded to the Niagara Community VYKON group here: To download the complete build with the patch included, visit https://software.niagara-central.com/ord?portal:/download/5361 for “Version 188.8.131.52 dated March 13, 2017”

ControlTalk NOW — Smart Buildings VideoCast|PodCast for week ending August 7, 2016 features interviews with Jenny Stentz, VP of Products & Distribution North America, at Johnson Controls, the world’s largest building controls provider and battery maker; Ken Sinclair, owner and editor of Automated Buildings, his August theme: Low Cost Powerful Hybrid Edge Controllers that move control and data analytics to the edge; and CityZenith’s Michael Jansen with amazing insight to big city solutions. Also this week: NexDefense’s call for action presentation at the Greater Atlanta Cyber Security for Control Systems Meetup; Lee Company deploys wearable technology for remote support; Vykon announces EOL for legacy JACEs, Honeywell’s Home Connectivity promo, and NREL’s Dylan Cutler uses Haystack tagging to reduce energy consumption.
Ken Sinclair’s Automated Buildings August Theme — Low Cost Powerful Hybrid Edge Controllers. In this August edition of Automated Buildings, owner and editor, Ken Sinclair, comments on how data will be alternating some its direction from the cloud to edge devices — where the data might be better served and for faster and greater effect. In Ken’s own words, “My five decades in the building automation industry have made it crystal clear that we are always moving towards or away from centralization and I love this month’s theme that sees us moving in both direction at the same time. This is important because the success of our industry and all other industries is embedded in the balance of cloud, edge and self learning devices.”Tennessee’s Lee Company Technicians use Smart Glasses to Receive Remote Support. ControlTrends has been anticipating the adoption of smart glasses in our HVAC industry and learned that the Lee Company, a contracting firm servicing Middle Tennessee, has already fully adopted the innovative use of wearable technology, which is revolutionizing the Facilities Services Industry. As Lee Company’s marketing states, “Telepresence is not a thing of the future, it’s the way of today. Information is power. Move forward with Insight.” An HVACR Open Letter to Graduates: NEWS editor-in-chief Kyle Gargaro explains the benefits of an HVACR career to recent high school graduates. This is a great video that delivers a straightforward message to high school graduates. As we read in the Johnson Controls’ white paper written by Renee Joseph entitled “Elevating the HVACR industry: Promoting exciting careers to diverse prospects can help address staffing shortages,” we are facing a double whammy: While our HVACR Industry is experiencing a 21% increase in HVACR mechanic and installer jobs through 2022, a survey by The Friday Group, an international firm providing facilities management consulting services to commercial business and government, projected that up to 60 percent of facility management staff – electricians, plumbers, HVAC mechanics, operations and maintenance workers and others – will retire in the next five to seven years. ControlTalk NOW interview with Jenny Stentz, VP of Products & Distribution North America, at Johnson Controls, the world’s largest building controls provider and battery maker. Jenny gives ControlTrends fresh insight into Johnson Controls’ realigned sales and the leadership role Johnson Controls has taken in the building and energy storage space. Johnson Controls offers the latest innovations in renewable technology, efficiency technology, controls technology, and battery storage technology and is focused on the ease of doing business with its channel partners.

“Bright Lights, Big City” Data Analytics for Big Cities, by CityZenith. “Bright Lights, Big City done gone to my baby’s head,” is a blues song by Jimmy Reed. If you are like me, somewhere along the line you had a break up that left you dazed and confused, hearing Jimmy’s song lets you know that there was someone who understood, could relate, and help you make sense of it all. When it comes to big cities, big data, and big time analytics, Michael Jansen and his team at CityZenith, understand, relate and can help city managers and planners make sense of the massive amounts of information and data that go into making a city run smoothly and efficiently.
NREL’s Dylan Cutler Works to Help the Navy Reduce Energy Consumption! NREL’s Dylan Cutler describes his work on NREL’s Energy Intelligent Campus project and ways that can translate to industry. Through an energy management and information system, Cutler looks at ways to bring together a variety of buildings data into a software platform where users can make intelligent decisions on how to manage their buildings and generation assets.

ControlTalk NOW — Smart Buildings VideoCast and Podcast for week ending February 7, 2016 features interviews with Dr. Igor Mezic and John Norris of Ecorithm and Ken Sinclair, owner and editor of Automated Buildings, and Neptronic’s VP of Sales and Marketing, Luis Melgares, along with Andy McMillan’s presentation at the Connected Community Collaboration, a product update from Vykon. Of special note was the announcement of Sameer Pradhan as Director of ControlTrends India.
ControlTalk NOW interview with Dr. Igor Mezic, Chief Scientific and Technical Advisor, Co-Founder and John Morris, VP of Sales and Marketing of Ecorithm, a firm from Santa Barbara that is reshaping what it means to benchmark, showcase, and ensure occupant comfort, operational efficiency, and building health. Dr. Mezic is a world-renowned expert in the field of building energy efficiency. He is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). His major scientific contribution has been the development of operator-theoretic methods for analysis of complex dynamical systems, that led to a massive number of applications in “Big Data Dynamics” – a term he coined.
Ken Sinclair’s Automated Buildings February, 2016 Release: “Making it Mashable.” Ken Sinclair, owner and editor of Automated Buildings, applies the word mashable to the building automation world. Mashable, which the Urban Dictionary defines as “a term used to describe two or more online applications that work together and/or within each other.” February’s AB theme, “Making it Mashable,” addresses then, a very relevant concern — that as we sort through the maelstrom of exponential IoT technology impacting our industry, an industry that seeks optimality in every aspect of smart building control, data integration, and the maximum realization of energy and operational efficiencies — the question becomes, are we there yet? The technology certainly is, but our “mashability,” will ultimately answer yes or no for us.
VYKON Integrated Analytics Available Now on JACE Hardware. Latest version 1.1 includes advanced data visualization module! VYKON Integrated Analytics broke new ground when it was introduced.
