Orlando, FL — AHR Expo — January 25, 2010 — ICONICS, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner of the Year and award winning provider of Web-enabled, BACnet-based, software for building automation, announced a new solution FacilityWorX™.

ICONICS FacilityWorX enables facility managers to intelligently reduce cost, increase security, improve alarm response time and achieve better energy efficiency. FacilityWorX provides an open standards software integration platform for existing building automation systems to achieve a complete operational view of an entire building or campus. Integrate lighting, elevator, boiler, chiller, fire, generator, access control, and HVAC control systems into one easy-to-configure operational console. FacilityWorX communicates via BACnet, Modbus, JCI N1, SNMP, LonWorks and OPC with all major control systems.

“ICONICS runs in over 40,000 building control applications worldwide, making facilities a key market for us,” said Mark Hepburn, Vice President of Worldwide Sales for ICONICS. “FacilityWorX connects the various building control systems found in our buildings and campuses into unified management systems. It is designed with the BAS integrator in mind for easy development to drive profitability and efficiency. FacilityWorX will be marketed exclusively in the Americas through organizations who specialize in building automation system solutions and services.”

FacilityWorX provides users with the greatest application performance, reliability and flexibility. Certification for Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Vista operating systems assures applications will run for years to come, thereby “future proofing your investment.”

Due to the skyrocketing costs of energy, the need for a solution such as FacilityWorX has never been greater. FacilityWorX helps companies become “green” and reduce their overall carbon footprint through optimizations made to energy consumption. It can also assist companies in meeting LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards for the operation of green buildings.
