Controls Technician

Website Conexus

Company Description

Conexus was founded in 2005, based upon a dedication to leveraging open protocol building automation technologies to help our clients take back the control of their buildings from proprietary systems. We are dedicated to making life better for both our employees and our clients.

Building automation systems (or BAS) include heating, cooling, security access controls, lighting, and more. Compared to 2005, almost all of these systems are now “open”, but few system integrators are as dedicated to the intent of “open” as Conexus. Today, we are focused on helping our clients optimize the comfort, safety and efficiency of their buildings, collating all the data buildings create into actionable information for our customers.

Our working environment is friendly, family-oriented, and collaborative. We believe in providing a workplace that fosters an environment that attracts, develops and retains the best team in the industry.
