Echelon's new OpenLNS Network Operating System is a royalty-free network operating system and environment for developing, deploying, and managing building automation and energy management systems.

Manufacturers can develop applications faster with free tools, such as the new OpenLNS Application Developer’s Kit. Today, more than 300 plug-ins have been built for LNS® by the leading building automation system providers. Integrators can also add more value for their customers as OpenLNS supports more devices, such as all ISO/IEC 14908-1 compliant devices, routers and network interfaces.

Amazon.com, a Fortune 500 company based in Seattle, Washington, is the global leader in e-commerce. Amazon.com's unparalleled growth has created the need for the establishment of multiple distribution centers throughout the United States, and one of those centers was designated to be located in Whitestown, Indiana. (northwest of Indianapolis).

Amazon.com's commitment to providing work places that are healthy and environmentally responsible led them to seek the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold building certification. LEED is an internationally recognized sustainable building certification system, providing third party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies intended to improve performance in metrics such as energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts. In lieu of a traditional motion sensor on each fixture, a series of networked motion sensors were installed to support system changes from the graphical user interface. All HVAC and lighting controls are integrated onto a single, distributed LONWORKS® network. A daylight-harvesting feature further reduces lighting loads to maximize energy efficiency.
