FIN Edge2Cloud

Edge2Cloud is a feature that allows users of the FIN Framework to easily access building data, and service and upgrade FIN-based  building, equipment and IoT systems remotely and securely. Until now, this has required IT support, including the use of a VPN connection, or having to visit site, using up valuable time and resources.

FIN Edge2Cloud
Key features and benefits

Edge management

Edge2Cloud technology for FIN Framework provides remote device registration and management across multiple users and sites with secure access to any connected device from anywhere. It provides easy portfolio management with full access to FIN Framework and all projects from one place.


Edge2Cloud features state-of-the-art authentication and encryption (to TLS 1.2) using Amazon Web Services (AWS). Now a user can log-in to the cloud service from a browser anywhere in the world to access all the connected sites securely. No VPN required.


Edge2Cloud can be connected and integrated with other cloud platforms via an open API framework based on Haystack 4.0.

FIN "pushes" the data connection for the site to cloud, using the Haystack standard as the protocol, which is optimized for efficient remote connectivity.


Edge2Cloud can be deployed across multiple sites within minutes with a plug'n'play set up via an optional QR code. All you need is an internet connection.


Edge2Cloud is fully scalable to hundreds of thousands of sites for remote access from any browser.
