Honeywellannounced that it has acquiredINNCOM, a Connecticut-based, privately held manufacturer of advanced software-based energy management solutions and in-room controls for lodging, healthcare and educational institutions. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The acquisition will enhance Honeywell’s existing building management control systems offerings and broadens its customer base into the high-growth global lodging industry, particularly in the Middle East, India and Asia Pacific. INNCOM’s lodging customers include leading global brands ranging from mid-scale hotels to five-star luxury properties, including Hilton, Sheraton, Hyatt, St. Regis, Four Seasons, Radisson, Kimpton, among many others.

INNCOM, with 2011 sales of $24 million, offers a broad range of devices and solutions that make guest rooms and common areas “smarter” and more energy efficient, combining temperature and humidity control, energy management, lighting and drape control, on-line electronic lock control, guest interfaces and operating enhancements for housekeeping, security, operations and management staff.

“Energy and operational efficiency are key drivers for hotels, hospitals and educational institutions as they seek to reduce their energy costs while ensuring the comfort and security of their guests, patients or students,” saidBeth Wozniak, president of Honeywell ECC. “This acquisition complements our commercial strategy as a full energy services provider, including integrated HVAC, lighting controls and energy management.

INNCOM will be integrated into Honeywell’s Environmental & Combustion Controls (ECC) business, a part of Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions (ACS), and will join the businesses’ other Honeywell commercial controls brands.
