Integration with Johnson Controls Metasys Building Automation Systems

Steps to Use Johnson Controls Metasys Building Automation Systems

with PageGate


PageGate can be easily integrated with Johnson Control's Metasys Building Automation System by using PageGate's GetMail interface to receive email notifications from Metasys for distribution as SMS, pages and similar.

To have Metasys send information to PageGate, you'll first need to configure a sub-domain off of your main email domain and redirect the MX record of the sub-domain to the IP address of the PageGate computer.

For example, let's say that our main domain is example.com. We could then have the mail server administrators for example.com create the sub-domain paging.example.com and redirect the MX record for this sub-domain to the IP of the PageGate computer. Once this is accomplished, here's how to configure PageGate's GetMail module:

1) Open the PG Admin.

2) Go to Interfaces - GetMail - Settings.

3) Check Enabled.

4) Enter your sub-domain name in the "Local Domain" field.

5) Click Apply.
5a) If prompted, select Yes, you do want this to be enabled for all groups and recipients.

Once you do that, every recipient and group within PageGate becomes a valid email address on the new sub-domain.

For example, if we had a group named Alerts, we could send an email to alerts@paging.example.com and GetMail would read the message in, then submit the message for delivery to all of the members of the Alerts group.
