Throughout the COVID pandemic, the Monday Live! Group, working with the Coalition for Smarter Buildings has been actively working to identify barriers to the broad adoption of smarter buildings in the U.S. and globally.

A key work product of this work was the creation of the Smarter Stack, an open-source communication framework for practitioners in the industry to be able to consistently map products, technologies, and issues necessary for the successful deployment of technologies to make buildings smarter. The Smarter Stack is now being used widely by many organizations from vendors, channels, and building owners.
 

You can access the stack at this link.

Two important realizations emerged from the Smarter Stack.

First, for everything depicted on the Smarter Stack to work successfully at scale, all of the systems have to be able to interoperate with each other regardless of vendor, protocol, or when the system is installed in the building’s lifecycle.

Second, the industry lacks any kind of framework for this kind of system interoperability and lacks a specification for how these systems should interoperate with each other.

Out of this realization, a new project was initiated late in 2021 to create a specification framework, loosely modeled on the CSI Division 25.
The project, dubbed Div 2525 aims to create a path for the industry to adopt an interoperable framework for all of the systems depicted on the Smarter Stack.

This month sees the release of the first work product from Div 2525. The Vision document is specifically created for building owners and decision makers, for them to understand why interoperability is such a critical requirements for their buildings.
