Airmaster wins respected International Controls Award

Airmaster has collected an award at the Control Trends Awards, a well-respected international event held recently in Orlando, Florida.



Chief Software Architect Richard McElhinney collected the inaugural Project Haystack Award for his contributions to the recently launched open-source initiative.


Project Haystack streamlines the process of working with data from the Internet of Things. Through standardising semantic data models and web services, the goal of the initiative is to make it easier to unlock value from the vast quantity of data being generated by the smart devices that permeate our homes, buildings, factories, and cities. Applications include automation, control, energy, HVAC, lighting, and other environmental systems.


Airmaster is proud to be one of seven founding members of Project Haystack.
