About Us

CSN has been helping commercial and institutional building owners and managers in the Inland Northwest meet their goals for over 40 years.

Our territory includes Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho, and Western Montana. We supply, install and service digital control and automation systems that control indoor environments, protect assets, and reduce energy and operational expense.

We supply and support multiple control and automation system brands such as Robertshaw, Barber Colman, and t.a.c. by Schneider Electric. We support virtually all open protocols, and have extensive integration experience with such brands as Distech (LON), Circon (LON), Carrier (CCN Networks), Trane (IntelliPak RTUs), Orion (Aaon), Rockwell Automation, McQuay (chillers), Honeywell (BACnet, c-bus, and LON), Veris (power metering), ABB (variable speed drives), Nalco (water treatment systems), Siemens (System 600), York (chillers). We enable these building systems to work together seamlessly, and become accessible from any PC on your network, or anywhere in the world via the Internet.

We are fully licensed contractors throughout the territory we serve, and employ our own fully qualified control system engineers, drafters, installers, commissioning technicians, energy audit specialist, plumbers, project managers, and field service personnel. Our strategic staffing position allows us to cost-effectively deliver as a single source supplier, and provide the necessary on-going support services for all of your building mechanical, control, energy, and air quality needs, without the need to subcontract elements of our delivery or service.

Through our wide range of digital automation technologies, we maximize comfort while minimizing energy use with a variety of standard and custom software and sophisticated operating sequences. We also enhance safety and security with our integrated digital video and card access products. As a highly experienced team, we share in the excitement and satisfaction of delivering comprehensive solutions to each of the clients we serve.
