Who we are

J2 Innovations is a fast growing, innovative software development company based in California that created FIN Framework, which is a state-of-the-art open framework for building automation and IoT applications. Responding to the market demand for easier to configure and use solutions for managing buildings and IoT applications, the J2 Innovations team have been laser focused on usability and automating what were previously labor intensive engineering tasks.

What we do

We are a software technology business which created FIN Framework, which is aimed at OEMs; manufacturers of products or systems that are used in buildings. Our proposition is that it is more efficient and sustainable to develop world-class software and license it to many businesses rather than each one "re-inventing the wheel" again and again. FIN is designed to be highly customizable, so that our partners can bring a unique solution to market, tailored to their exact requirements. In North America, Systems Integrators can buy a branded version called FIN Stack via one of our distribution partners.

Why specify FIN?

Specifying FIN on new projects is a smart move as it helps future-proof your building or campus. This is because FIN Framework is natively based on the Haystack semantic tagging standard, which enables much better use of the data flowing from the buildings systems to improve operational & energy efficiency, space utilisation and employee productivity to maximise the return on the investment.
