Patel Shares Views on Wrangling Flood of Smart Building Data

As new internet of things (IoT) devices are added to existing building automation systems, the information they return can be overwhelming.

In an article recently published by Building Operating Management (BOM) magazine, Saagar Patel says there is a tendency in the industry to layer multiple tools on top of one another. Quoted in “How to Make Smart Building Data Smarter,” Patel says “That’s where the problem comes in because then you have redundant data streams. You have too many different technologies that are overlaid.”

The article goes on to outline strategies to convert smart building data into more reliable, useful, and actionable information for building operators and managers.

As operations director for the Energy+Eco team, Saagar Patel extends a key company value to respect everyone to also include the environment. He is a passionate advocate for energy efficiency and sustainability and shares his expertise in those areas to design and construction.
