smart buildings

Buildings matter. Buildings are the spaces in which we spend most of our lives and buildings belong to the major drivers of sustainability worldwide. Forming a central part of our lives, they should be safe, comfortable and efficient. Making buildings ‘smart’ reduces costs and adds value, whilst creating environments that are flexible, productive, efficient, and resilient. How do you make a building smart? The first step is to use a customizable, flexible and open framework software like FIN Framework (FIN).

Based on FIN Framework, we provide application suites to control large and small buildings; whether focused on managing a few systems in a small retail space or integrating all disciplines in a complex infrastructure building, your FIN Framework-based solution will be designed to the needs of the building, campus or city.

Our unique strength is our expertise in software, buildings, and automation. We make designing, building, and delivering smart buildings easy and fast for OEM partners.

What our customers say

“The speed that we were able to bring a product to market was remarkable. Our software developers figured it would take 2 years to develop a product for a specific industry like data centers. With FIN framework we were into development in 3-4 months and had a product ready for market... I really consider J2 to be an extended portion of our team and a really great partner.”

Jason Houck, CIO Hepta Control Systems
