    The Johnson Controls Metasys User Interface, or MUI is an all HTML5 UI that is designed to be browser,OS, and hardware platform independent.
    It works good on smartphones, iPads, tablets, PC's, MAC's and whatever else that has a browser.
    It has been in production for a couple years, but has been constantly evolving. It will replace the traditional UI at some point.
    It uses a space based layout. A typical space might have a VAV associated with it, then the VAV has an air handler linked to it, which in turn has a chiller and boiler plant linked to it.
    The downside is that it has to live on an ADX or an ADS....for now.

This means that both UI’s would need to be included in the engine. They simply won’t fit, and this is why a server is required to have the MUI. All of the old as well as the new controllers can be seen in the platform independent MUI.
    The SMP is going to be phased out as more features get put into the HTML 5 MUI, then the launcher will be just a faint memory.
    The new NAE’s being released this year have significantly more memory and processing power than the current engines.
    With the new engine hardware, the Linux migration, and the new UI, there are quite a few irons in the fire
    Glad to hear that, let's see what will come out from all these...

    How flattering. Better later than never.
