2004 Olympics uses LonWorks


The LonWorks® device networking platform for connecting everyday devices to each other and to the Internet will be used at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. Smart LonWorks open systems, including HVAC and energy management, will be used in the baseball, softball and hockey venues.

The system uses a flat architecture built on Echelon Corporation’s LNS® network operating system, and includes interoperable devices, automation functions and system management. It is based on LonMark certified interoperable products from Honeywell (Excel 5000 products) and Continental Controls (the WattNode energy sub-meters) managed by Honeywell’s LNS-based CARE network management tool.
