June 26, 2019

A common misconception is that using smart devices or Internet of Things (IoT) technologies within a facility is enough to position that space as a smart building, according to an article from Building Operating Management on the FacilitiesNet website.

 In reality, an intelligent building is a set of dynamically connected smart systems made interoperable through a platform that accumulates, shares, detects, analyzes, anticipates, and acts upon the collective smart building data. 

 IoT devices are intended to serve as components that can be linked together to form a truly intelligent building. When enabled to share specialized data through an open-source data platform, smart building systems become collectively intelligent and their effectiveness increases exponentially. 

Both existing buildings and new construction can be made “intelligent” by following five key steps. And a building’s “intelligence” can be increased with each building system that is integrated, allowing for a continuous improvement strategy.

Continue to the five steps.
