Panel Discussion: Smart Building Focus – The IoT-ness of a Smart Building

Session Abstract:

The quintessential “genius” building is one that presents a person-centric seamless experience enabled by interoperable devices, systems and applications that exchange actionable data as needed. IoT devices and applications facilitate data capture and actuation, bringing bricks and mortar to digital life. This session will discuss three compelling use cases that realize TIA’s holistic vision of the Smart Building.
