The past several years has demonstrated that device connections to buildings continue on an upward climb, delivering undeniable value to building owners, operators and now occupants alike. The rate of change can be attributed not only to diverse technologies but also changes driven by connectivity, data, increased business outcomes and expectations. For most, it is no longer a matter of “should we?” but “why aren’t we and when will we?”

An Intelligent Building Is........
Some people collect comics; some art. Some collect sports memorabilia, others, coins. I could go on. I collect intelligent building definitions. Not really, but I thought I'd share some of the definitions I have managed to collect over the years I have been out pitching the value and benefits of smart, intelligent buildings.
