KMC Controls Puts the Power of the Internet of Things in its Customers’ Hands with Kony


“KMC Connect Lite is just the beginning of a series of mobile apps we plan to develop, and we see Kony being in a great position to enable us to develop apps for our KMC Commander solution to revolutionize the building automation space.”

- Richard Newberry, CEO, KMC Controls



“With Kony Visualizer we could bring our team together and storyboard what we wanted the app to do so we could get that ironed out earlier rather than later. We can bring in different stakeholders and they can see actively and dynamically what the mobile app is going to be doing, and then we can tweak that long before we get to the business logic and development.”

- Dave Bohlmann, VP of Technology, KMC Controls



“We see IoT as a way to deliver the data that we’re producing to the correct people and in a relevant manner. In today’s world and in the future, our customers are going to want to digest information on their mobile devices and have it tailored to deliver the information they want to see.”

- Erich Kreuter, VP of Product Development, KMC Controls


The Challenge

The intersection of mobile and the Internet of Things (IoT) is a sweet spot that holds special potential for companies that manage maintenance- intensive physical assets. Perhaps no industry fits that description better than building and facilities management.

Those charged with managing large buildings or campuses are motivated by three objectives, each of which brings bottom-line implications: minimize energy usage, maximize operational efficiency, and ensure the comfort and safety of occupants.

And it just so happens that the systems in question — things like heating and air conditioning, lighting and electrical — all are tailor-made for the kind of automated monitoring and management capabilities that mobile IoT applications can deliver.

All of which explains why KMC Controls, a New Paris, Ind.-based building automation manufacturer, has zeroed in on what it sees as a huge opportunity for itself and its customers.
