The Smart Move to Intelligent Buildings

Technology is changing what’s possible for buildings. Heating, electrical, lighting and other smart systems that once chugged along alone need to communicate through an open-source data platform to create an intelligent building — one that can optimize operation.

Steve Brown, Kurt Karnatz and Rob Knight wrote “A Comprehensive Look at the Intelligent Building” for the April issue of Consulting-Specifying Engineer magazine. They point out that once smart building systems become collectively intelligent, their effectiveness increases exponentially. That creates better financial performance, sustainability and other benefits for stakeholders.
