OpenXpress Building Management System

Built on J2 Innovations’ FIN Framework, OpenXpress is an out-of-the-box building management system that provides tools and applications that can be engineered quickly and easily. This intelligent, world-class open technology system connects your commercial HVAC, lighting, security, lift, and fire services protection systems – enabling them to communicate on a single platform to deliver the information you need, allowing you to make smarter, savvier decisions while enhancing your occupants’ comfort, safety and productivity.

This technology can live at every level of the architecture; the edge device, global controller, server, and even the cloud! With a variety of Application Server Platforms (ASP), you have one technology that provides a unifying toolset for all your solutions!


Edge2Cloud provides secure edge management via the Edge2Cloud app and web portal, which uses AWS (Amazon Web Services) to provide easy to set-up, fully encrypted remote access without requiring a VPN (Virtual Private Network). Edge2Cloud also enables secure integration with 3rd party Cloud applications. With Edge2cloud functionality, monitoringand control of remote building services infrastructure with cloud computing makes it easy to remotely perform real-time diagnostics, over-the-air updates and respond to critical building services alarms. 

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.

Enhanced 3D Graphics

Crisp, 2D and 3D graphic libraries that contain water-side systems, air-side systems, labs and dashboard components to bring insight into the facility

Automated Time Scheduling

A smart building operates on its own schedule of operation, using built-in automated scheduling and calendar features. Buildings can be further automated during occupied times to be operating at peak comfort and performance while being efficient; reducing loads for nights, weekends, and holidays.

Enhanced Reporting

Visibility is the key to implementing sustainability initiatives in the built environment. What is not measured cannot be managed. OpenXpress provides the ability to visualize and report utility and meter data in real time. Displays can be created that provide an overview of utility performance with the ability to drill deeper for investigation purposes. This allows for fast fault diagnosis.

User specific reports for major buildings or individual meters can be automatically generated and emailed via CSV or PDF. Out of normal condition alarming provides instant notification when problems arise.

The mobile app for Android and IOS allows users to view reports, alarms and energy data from a single tenant, building or a portfolio of buildings in real time.

Logic Builder

Logic Builder app enables the easy creation of smart alarming strategies and automatic fault detection diagnostic routines, which can be developed once, and applied right across your project by leveraging the power of tagging…. Relativized graphics and  logic due to tagging – create once and deploy multiple times… An open software platform for building automation & IoT which has very intuitive visualization features for smartphones, tablets and PC browsers.


OpenXpress can be configured for email alarm notification so that alarms can be addressed directly from your mobile device when you’re away from your desk. The BMS was designed using a mobile first strategy, once you receive an alarm notification, you can quickly and easily navigate to the alarm app on your mobile device. You can also troubleshoot with the full functionality of BMS apps such as point graphics, notes, schedules, and overrides right from your phone.
