CAN2GO™ is perfect for new installations and retrofits, in all building types - whether as a stand-alone solution or integrated to an existing BACnet IP system.
Easy retrofit solution
Addressing the needs of building owners and facility managers, CAN2GO offers a unique solution enabling quick and easy retrofits of the most commonly found HVAC systems in commercial buildings. The solution combines CAN2GO’s controllers and Web BEMS with application specific peripherals designed to handle popular HVAC equipment. The Web BEMS already has pre-configured objects matching those peripherals for easy integration and population of inputs and outputs. This combination greatly reduces commissioning time, while the wireless capabilities of the devices reduces deployment time and inconvenience.
Light commercial & mid-market
Commercial buildings of less than 100,000 sq.ft. represent 98% of commercial buildings and 65% of the commercial floor space. This market is largely underserviced because of the high fixed costs (software, server) of traditional building automation systems. With their embedded gateways and web servers, CAN2GO controllers reduce the fixed costs of BAS and provide a shorter payback for this untapped market.
With their embedded web interface, CAN2GO controllers provide real building automation to commercial outlets and branches without the high fixed costs of servers and software that usually come with older, less flexible systems. Because our interface is IP based, retail chains can monitor and control all their locations remotely.
Small, medium and large offices all have significative energy footprint and extensive energy bills. Use CAN2GO and combine wired and wireless technologies to lower energy costs while maintaining occupant comfort and productivity. All with minimum downtime and reduced software/server costs.
Hotels & Hospitality
Combine access and occupancy detection systems with lighting and HVAC control with polyvalent CAN2GO controllers. Limit downtime and renovation inconvenience by using all the wireless possibilities of our technology. Less disturbance with great return on investment.
Educational facilities, Schools, Colleges & Universities
Classrooms, administrative offices, gymnasiums, cafeterias, storage rooms and more. CAN2GO provides schools with flexible lighting and HVAC building automation solutions. Use CAN2GO products for faster installation, integration and payback.
Telecommunication tower cell sites and utility substation buildings
CAN2GO's web-enabled controllers are the ideal solution for telecommunication tower cell sites and utility substations. No other solution is as cost-effective for full control of HVAC equipment and web remote management of these buildings.
Factories & Warehouses
Changing configuration, mobile machinery and merchandise, high ceilings, etc. CAN2GO can handle it all and minimize downtime by using wireless networking.
Historical & heritage buildings
Historical buildings cannot be commissioned or retrofitted by any building automation system. They require special care and solutions that won't affect their appearance and value. CAN2GO, offering the best and most integrated wireless communication and control options in the industry, can provide your heritage building with control and energy efficiency without opening a single wall.
CAN2GO is one of the most advanced and less invasive systems on the market. Local, state and national government offices looking for the greenest, most flexible and efficient building automation solution can use CAN2GO with confidence.
Laboratory environments require precise monitoring and control, as well as compliance to stringent rules and norms. CAN2GO is industrial grade and offers high quality products with the accuracy, flexibility, certification and quality control necessary to match the most demanding clients.
CAN2GO has building automation solutions for HVAC, lighting & metering applications for retail, office, hospitality, schools, factories and institutional buildings.

CAN2GO reduces the labor, hardware and software costs of building automation by offering powerful and flexible solutions based on wireless, automation and web standards such as EnOcean, Zigbee, BACnet, Modbus, CANbus and IP/Ethernet.
The wireless control and networking capabilities of CAN2GO controllers reduce the need to wire end-devices and controllers. Less wiring means less labor, which means minimal installation downtime. For example, in a factory, the CAN2GO solution reduced the time on the job by 40% and avoided the perturbation of production.
Wiring means opening/closing walls, crawling in the ceiling, installing conduits. The less you need, the better. By offering both the EnOcean and ZigBee wireless options, CAN2GO minimizes the amount of wiring needed for any project. For example, in a school, the CAN2GO solution reduced electrical labor by 61%. Go wireless with the option of wiring when you need to with CAN2GO wired and wireless products.
CAN2GO controllers are equipped with embedded BACnet gateways, converting wired and wireless end-devices into BACnet objects for seamless integration. Because of their embedded gateways, CAN2GO units can also manage HVAC and lighting applications simultaneously. This reduces the need for external gateways and application-specific controller, pulling down the hardware and integration costs of building automation.
The CAN2GO web BEMS is a web interface that is hosted directly by CAN2GO controllers. There is no server to buy or software license to pay. Read more about the CAN2GO web BEMS >>
With CAN2GO controllers, adding wireless sensors, switches, relays, thermostats or other end-devices is easy. Unlike physical inputs and outputs, wireless I/Os are not limited by the number of connectors a controller has.
CAN2GO reduces labor costs with the use of wireless, but also reduces fixed hardware and software costs. First, by combining lighting & HVAC in a single controller and providing embedded BACnet gateways. Second, by eliminating software license and server costs through its embedded web interface.
CAN2GO products are polyvalent. They have been designed to tackle several different tasks and applications.
CAN2GO™ controllers can manage lighting and HVAC at the same time. No need to purchase separate controllers for each application, no need to install everything twice. CAN2GO™ controllers inputs and outputs bring the lighting and HVAC world together for the benefit of contractors and end-users.
Lighthing, HVAC and more, all within a single controller. No need to buy separate controllers for each application. Save on hardware and installation by using less, more powerful controllers.
Bidirectionnal, programmable, wired and wireless VAV controller.
Powerful, programmable and polyvalent controllers for the most industrious applications.
Polyvalent, powerful, programmable controllers for your machine room needs.
With support for wired I/O, BACnet, Modbus and ZigBee, our controllers can manage and integrate a large variety of meters, submeters and pulse counters, for electricity, gas and water.
We have controllers that do both seamlessly. They are equipped with an EnOcean transceiver, a ZigBee transceiver, as well as regular inputs and outputs, offering two-way communication for simultaneous wired and wireless control. Our controllers convert end-devices (wired, wireless (EnOcean, ZigBee)) into BACnet objects, so no gateway is required.
EnOcean and ZigBee are wireless protocols used by hundreds of products from dozens of manufacturers. You can easily find end-devices that use EnOcean and ZigBee for the wireless control of HVAC and lighting, including: thermostats, temperature sensors, humidity sensors, CO2 sensors, actuators, light switches, light sensors, relays, occupancy sensors, access keycard readers, door & window contacts, meters and submeters, etc.
