The company leadership is provided by a seasoned and proven team of entrepreneurs and industry mangers that have built successful businesses in both building automation and software development. In May 2018, J2 Innovations was acquired by Siemens, vindicating our conviction that our products will revolutionize how monitoring, control and visualization systems for building automation and IoT will be built and used. We operate independently and focus on enabling OEMs of building related industries to be successful; such companies generally manufacture products in the HVAC, lighting, shading, fire, security and many other building and IoT markets.
