BTL Mark: Resolve interoperability issues & increase buyer confidence
| A Smart Building Is....
(Fill in the Blank)
Back in the day, (2012) I wrote the following:
Some people collect comics; some art. Some collect sports memorabilia, others coins. I could go on. I collect intelligent building definitions. Not really, but I thought I'd share some of the definitions I have managed to collect. While each definition offers its own perspective, it is interesting to see the similarities and the differences.
course there is no right one or wrong one. Pinning down an exact
definition isn't easy in a market that continues to be disruptive.
However one thing is common, intelligent buildings, smart buildings
deliver measurable value.
(I have purposely omitted the names of the individuals and organizations associated with these to protect the innocent).
Do any of these align with you? Or do you have a definition (I would welcome to add it to this collection). Whichever definition you align yourself with or combination thereof, at the end of the day, smart buildings involves connectivity, integration and interoperability to enable buildings to use less energy, operate at lower costs and safer, contribute to our environment and deliver value to multiple stake holders.
So now that we’re in 2015, do any of these still resonate with you? Have advances in technology changed how we define a smart building? What market factors have influenced what a smart building is? How has the perception of a smart building changed?
I’ll offer my definition…..”A smart building is one that uses operational and IT technologies and processes to make it a better performing building----one that delivers lower operating costs, uses less energy, maximizes system and equipment lifetime value, is cyber secured and produces measurable value for multiple stake holders”.
Lynxspring is changing way devices and systems communicate and collaborate across enterprises. Our technologies, solutions and services are enabling building owners, operators and facility managers to go further to manage and operate their facilities and equipment smarter, safer, securely, more efficiently, and at peak performance levels.
The company’s JENEsys Building Operating System is an open, unified, building operating system that combines connectivity, integration and interoperability, supervision and control, energy management, visualization and actionable information (data & analytics) into a single, integrated architecture within a cyber-secured environment. The JENEsys Platform is scalable and allows organizations to continually build off the same network deployment and add additional applications as desired.
