Tridium is a world leader in business application frameworks—advancing truly open environments that harness the power of the Internet of Things. Our innovations have fundamentally changed the way people connect and control devices and systems. Our products allow people and machines to communicate and collaborate like never before.

Niagara AX is an open, Java-based framework that can connect almost any embedded device or system—regardless of manufacturer or communication protocol. It includes a comprehensive graphical toolset that lets you build rich applications in a drag-and-drop environment and easily manage your assets using a standard Web browser


The hardware that drives our software, Tridium JACE controllers unleash the full power of Niagara.

To integrate diverse devices and systems, a physical connection is required. The JACE (Java Application Control Engine) controller is the mechanism that provides this connectivity. By connecting common network protocols such as LonWorks®, BACnet®, Modbus®, OPC, oBIX and many proprietary networks, a unified system emerges. Scalability and reliability are maintained with the unique distributed architecture that a network of JACE controllers creates.

Tridium Niagara 4 has an all-new user interface

Niagara 4 builds on the legacy of the Niagara Framework® in new and exciting ways. It’s less reliant on browser plug-ins, faster and easier to use. A truly open framework, Niagara 4 delivers a variety of notable improvements to help businesses take full advantage of the Internet of Things, including advanced visualization and new search, security and navigation tools.

Improved Security

Niagara 4 is secure by default. Authentication requires users to choose strong credentials, and both data in motion and sensitive data at rest are encrypted. Niagara 4 also uses Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), making user permissions easy to configure and less error-prone. All user actions and security-related events are recorded in Niagara’s audit log for traceability.

Easy conversion to Niagara 4

Tridium has put a great amount of effort into providing a seamless transition process for customers migrating from Niagara AX to Niagara 4. Our native Niagara Fox protocol will work between the Niagara AX and Niagara 4 software systems, and the Niagara 4 software will work with any currently available JACE controller. For those making the conversion to our most up-to-date products, Tridium offers a station conversion tool that will adapt Niagara AX stations to Niagara 4 stations.
