Open Connection Communities

The privilege of being the publisher/editor of AutomatedBuildings.com is that it requires that I read and assemble many articles, interviews, news releases, and new products for the large building automation industry every month. This task allows me insight to make comments on trends and shifts in direction in the industry based on the rapidly evolving information published on our magazine/online resource monthly.

My overall takeaway from AHR Expo 2012 Chicago was the growing importance of being part of several strong Open Connection Communities. Who we are connected to and the value they bring to our products and services defines who we are and likely who we are to become. Open Connection Communities will shape building automation’s future.  Read more on this in my AHR takeaway & review.

Our education sessions went well and as requested we have posted our PDFs of Power Point Presentations from AHR Expo Chicago 2012.  If you missed the sessions this is your chance to take a peek at what we were talking about; some excellent information provided by Jim Sinopoli.

As always a great collection of articles, columns, and interviews in this month's issue.
