Smart buildings, really? Does a KNX-building speak IoT?
Rik Vereecken
Smart Building Evangelist
byNubian
Abstract:
Buildings have become complex systems with billions of sensors, devices and 'things' that communicate, perform services and generate data. Unfortunately, these 'things' don't work together, they speak another language, and how do we know they perform correctly? byNubian delivers solutions to integrate all building devices (KNX, Modbus, BACnet, LoRaWan,) so you can analyse their behaviour and transform your building and operational data into real value, both ecological and financial, creating a true 'Building Internet of Your Things'.
