Dortmund/Marietta GA, Mar 25, 2015. – BACnet faces the growing role of IT in building automation and speeds up communication with its users. The roll-out of a worldwide education event for building planners and facility managers takes place in Seattle, WA on April 21st. Opened by the city of Seattle, the foundation event of the BACnet Roadshow 2015 provides a comprehensive program about the new capabilities of the BACnet standard.

“Controls configuration will become much like selecting apps for your smart phone”, says Andy McMillan, President of BACnet International. The approach of the growing BACnet community in the building automation and energy management industry is clear. With more functionalities and connections to the Internet of Things, suppliers develop new devices and solutions for customer needs. Airports, hospitals, factories – they all count increasingly on BACnet as a cornerstone for reliable investments.

The many faces of BACnet and its expansion from HVAC into other areas is a key topic presented by the standardisation committee and the vendors who are members of the world spanning BACnet community. Deeper insights into interoperable devices will be presented by Delta Controls, EnOcean, Blue Ridge Technologies, ConnectAIR, E+E Elektronic, Engenuity Systems, Measurelogic, Oberix and PCVue.

Eagerly awaited is the enhenced BACnet testing and certification system that will be introduced for the very first time. After Seattle, the Roadshow will move on to the rest of the word, communicating the progress of BACnet in Europe and Asia. The program of the foundation event in Seattle and information about the subsequent locations are available at
