AX/N4 Supervisor License Migrator End-of-Support

AX/N4 Supervisor N4 License Migrator support extended to December 31, 2023.

This applies to ALL Supervisors purchased as AX Supervisors, whether upgraded to N4 or not.

What is the AX/N4 Supervisor N4 License Migrator?

  • The migrator, when processed, will change the AX Supervisor license from an AX model to an N4 model and remove the AX portion.
  • The migrator requires an active SMA for it to work
  • If the Supervisor license has an active SMA currently, the migrator can be used for no cost
  • If the Supervisor license does not have an active SMA, one must be purchased

What happens if the Supervisor license is not migrated?

  • The Supervisor license cannot have its HostID replaced if it changes, even with an active SMA (as of July 1, 2023)
  • Even with an active SMA, the current licensed N4 version will be frozen when new versions of N4 are released
  • If a new HostID is needed after December 31, 2023, a new Supervisor license will have to be purchased


  • If the Supervisor license has an active SMA currently
    • the Niagara-Central License Server can be used to run the migrator and upgrade the license to N4 at no cost 
  • If the Supervisor license does not have an active SMA
    • , an SMA must be purchased to keep the license current and active. Once done, the Niagara-Central License Server can run the migrator and upgrade the license to N4.

Simple Visual Confirmation of Air Quality with The Honeywell TR50.

The people in your building want to know that the air they breathe is monitored for their well-being. The Honeywell TR50 Indoor Air Quality Sensor provides simple visual confirmation of air quality, with an optional display to show up to five key components of air health. Data shows we spend over 90% of our time indoors, and building occupants are increasingly concerned about the quality of indoor environments. So monitoring your indoor air quality with the option to display it is great for people – and for business.

The Honeywell TR50 Series IAQ Sensor is an advanced, configurable device for commercial buildings. It monitors: Temperature (T), Relative Humidity (RH), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Particulate Matter (PM1.0, PM2.5, PM10), Total Volatile Organic Compound (TVOC). Flexible building automation system integration via Modbus, BACnet, or Sylk bus protocols. Customizable display and sensor thresholds with stable long-term accuracy for minimal maintenance or recalibration.

Features & Benefits:
• System agnostic: Integrate with any building management system via Modbus, BACnet™, or Sylk™
• Save time and labor: Long term stability with minimal recalibration needed; option for remote firmware updates
• Customizable: Choose which IAQ parameter(s) is visible on device display; customize color ring

• RoHS: IEC63000
• CE: EN 60730-1, EN 60730-2-9
• FCC: CFR 47 Part 15 Subpart B
• UL: UL 60730-1, UL 60730-2-9
• ISED: ICES -003 issue 7

IAQ sensors work with Honeywell’s most advanced controller platforms to meet your specific building management needs for any application.

As previously announced, WEBs-AX licensing ended on July 1, 2021. It is more important than ever to migrate to WEBs-N4 to benefit from the improvements and features of each new release. The AX-to-N4 License Migrator makes it easy to create a WEBs-N4 license with standard features equivalent to the migrated WEBs-AX license within the same brand. License options that are not owned by Honeywell will not be transferred. License options that are not supported in WEBs-N4 will not be transferred. Learn more


The open alternative: WEBs N4A truly open framework, WEBs N4 helps businesses take full advantage of the Internet of Things. The latest release, WEBs 4.11, includes a host of new features to support you as you distribute more control and management tasks to intelligent edge devices.

FBTi-7T7-1U1R Enhances IAQ and Energy Efficiency

ABB announced the launch of the FBTi-7T7-1U1R recently, a piece of technology designed to improve indoor air quality (IAQ) and optimize energy usage in terminal equipment. This device was built to cover various applications including fan coil units, chilled ceilings, heat pump systems, and rooftop units. The engineers behind this device leveraged the ABB Cylon FusionAir sensor series for its multifaceted capabilities in handling IAQ applications such as demand control ventilation. The FBTi-7T7-1U1R is designed to help improving IAQ while also ensuring maximum efficiency when it comes to conserving energy costs.

Available at Broudy Precision, the FBTi-7T7-1U1R is a high performance, low cost BACnet® Unitary Controller with native BACnet/IP communications support. BTL listed as BACnet Building Controller (B-BC), it perfectly complements the FBVi (IP VAV controller) in the IP terminal unit controller range. Utilizing the patented UniPut technology, it provides reliable and cost-effective control solutions for Fan Coil Units, Chilled Ceilings, Heat Pumps and Roof Top Units.

Dual IP ports with failsafe switchover connects the FBTi to any open BACnet network and also provides seamless integration to the ABB Cylon system.


The FBTi-7T7-1U1R is designed to cover applications from Fan Coil Unit, Chilled Ceiling, Heat Pump and Roof Top Units. Leveraging the ABB Cylon FusionAir sensor series, the FBTi can execute IAQ applications such as Demand Control Ventilation and optimize energy usage in the controlled terminal equipment.

It is programmed using CXproHD programming software as with other ABB Cylon controllers. Reference strategies for Fan Coil Units and Roof Top Units are available for download and customization.



Docker® + Niagara, learn why it might be beneficial for your Niagara application.

With the upcoming release of Niagara Framework® 4.13, Niagara will be available as a Docker® container that packages together the Niagara core, the JRE (Java Runtime Environment), and any additional modules required at runtime. This containerized delivery mechanism has advantages during development, at first provisioning for a given customer and for each version upgrade compared to standard deployment and integration processes.

A container bundles the code defining a specific software application with its related configuration files, libraries, and dependencies such that the package is fully functional, no matter the cloud or non-cloud computing environment, enhancing agility, updatability, and security over the product life cycle. Containers are less resource intensive, more portable than Virtual Machines, and can ease development, deployment, and upgrades. 

Containerized Niagara offers simplified deployment of Niagara in cloud-based environments and for third-party hardware. For OEMs using a container orchestration system, simplified container management facilitates remote deployment and updating of Niagara on connected devices. 

Containerized Niagara offers the following new features:

  • Niagara Framework supplied in a Docker® container
  • Support for AMD_x86 and Arm64 architecture and custom support for different architectures
  • Two different authentication methods – File Domain Auth or Native Domain Auth
  • Subscription-based purchasing using OPex instead of CAPex for purchasing flexibility

Act Now, Niagara AX End of Life is Approaching-July 1st 2023.
