Company views organization as strong force in building automation.

As part of Contemporary Controls commitment to the BACnet community, the company is now an active member of BACnet International. “We joined this organization because we view the BACnet community as a strong force in the building automation arena, with which it will help get our products out to more customers,” said Sales Manager Joe Stasiek. “We are developing and marketing products to provide ease-of-use in the BACnet/IP area. The focus of these products is to utilize the existing Ethernet structured wiring to provide simple and cost-effective addition of sensors and actuators with a minimum of wiring and less disruption of personnel in the office.

As members of BACnet International, the company attended its first Plugfest in October. “I think a huge benefit is the camaraderie that you receive from networking with other members,” explained Stasiek.  “At Plugfest we were able to exchange new ideas and solve problems other members were having with technology. Their expertise impressed us much.” Some of these members were from Honeywell and Delta Controls. Members were involved in the design, manufacturing installation, commissioning, and maintenance of control equipment that uses BACnet for communication.

Stasiek said our membership enables us to see the challenges that we will encounter in the marketplace. “We’ll have the opportunity to work closer with the other companies to make changes as time passes,” explained Stasiek. “But more importantly, Contemporary Controls will be able to become more visible and be represented as a significant voice within the BACnet community.”
