J2 Innovations and Hailin join forces to develop enhanced building automation in China


Costa Mesa, California: China’s leading building controls manufacturer Hailin Controls, has announced a partnership with J2 Innovations, a Siemens company, to develop new digital building controls on J2’s FIN Framework.

FIN Framework is a flexible open software framework that enables OEMs to create building automation and IoT applications quickly and efficiently.

The Beijing-based business has a footprint in more than 60 countries across North America, Europe, Middle East, Australia and South America, and has sold more than 8 millions controls serving 100 million users. It will create a range of control products to support their focus on developing smart building technologies.

Li Siyang, Deputy General Manager of Hailin Controls, said: “Our aim is to make buildings more energy efficient, healthy, and comfortable, and the ability for us to build smart products using FIN supports not only effective building management but also end-user operational efficiency.”

Hailin focuses on developing extraordinary products, systems and services, and being a responsible and respectable global enterprise. They see FIN Framework as an enabler of technology in smart buildings, and it will undoubtedly help Hailin provide more value-add solutions to customers and win more market share in building automation.
