Jim Clark Announces Launch of CommandScape, Bringing a State of the Art Building Management System to Commercial and Premium Residential Properties

22 Aug 2017

CommandScape redefines how customers manage their homes and businesses with a fully integrated, cybersecure solution

Jim Clark, serial entrepreneur and founder of Silicon Graphics, Netscape, WebMD, MyCFO and Shutterfly, today announces the launch of his latest business venture, CommandScape, the only truly integrated building management system for commercial and premium residential properties. The CommandScape suite of products and services combines video surveillance, security, lighting and more, introducing an entirely new cybersecure platform that delivers total control and connectivity for commercial buildings and larger homes.

“There has been limited building management innovation over the last several years and in turn, there remains a need for a highly secure and integrated control system suitable for commercial properties and large homes,” said Jim Clark, founder of CommandScape. “CommandScape solves that problem with the next generation of security and control that allows users to connect and manage their property though an intuitive application anywhere and anytime.  Our world class leadership and engineering teams have worked to perfect the system for anyone who is authorized to interact with it.”

CommandScape introduces a new standard to the industry with a building management system that features a customized floor plan beautifully represented on a simple and intuitive mobile interface. The CommandScape Navigator™ app opens instantly and users can easily find and interact with multiple properties from anywhere in the world. CommandScape delivers the highest level of cybersecurity while accessing and managing properties using the same highly secure certificate process invented by NetScape. Instead of relying on username / password combinations, the solution uses device-based encryption to create instant connectivity and prevent unauthorized access.  CommandScape allows you to authorize individuals and specify access to properties via individual certificates, assign different levels of permission and limit or grant access to specific areas, rooms or functionality.  At launch, CommandScape will provide physical security, lighting, shade control, video surveillance and the ability to incorporate motion detection for automation and notification purposes all wrapped in a cybersecure envelope. Additional building management capabilities, including network monitoring, climate control, energy monitoring, access control, home entertainment and multimedia are on the product roadmap for the future.

CommandScape enables integrator partners to provide their clients with new technology not available on the market today. CommandScape’s intuitive, elegant design, reflected in both the software and hardware, delivers a clean and exquisite experience that enables protection and full property control. In addition to being accessible and easy to install for an integrator, it’s easily transferrable to a property manager or any authorized user of the system. With CommandScape Editor™, it is easy to customize schedules, presets, automations and alerts based on each user’s personal preferences. Integrators can also remotely troubleshoot client systems saving time and money.

In conjunction with CommandScape’s launch, Jim Clark is appointing Don Boerema as President and CEO. Don has a wealth of professional experience and a proven record of success in leadership roles with Fortune 100 Proctor & Gamble, PepsiCo, and AT&T Wireless and privately held FDN Communications.

Don joins CommandScape from The ADT Corporation where his latest role was Senior Vice President and Chief Corporate Development Officer, leading corporate strategy, market and business development, mergers and acquisitions and the health business unit.   During his time at ADT he also was the Chief Marketing Officer, overseeing all marketing and product management for the Residential and Commercial business segments.

“CommandScape’s highly skilled and accomplished team is bringing a compelling experience to customers and integrators alike.” said Don Boerema, President and CEO, CommandScape. “CommandScape provides property owners an integrated experience that offers flexibility, customization and peace of mind through a sophisticated combination of hardware and software. We built this solution with very clear customer needs in mind and are committed to deliver secure solutions that delight our customers with every aspect of our system.”

CommandScape offers the only fully integrated cybersecure building management system on the market that delivers an exceptional experience for users, integrators, property managers, businesses and partners. CommandScape will continue to develop a robust ecosystem of partners and integrators to ensure all the personalized needs of customers are met.
