Panel: Smart Tenant Solutions For Smart Buildings Operations


Smart buildings not only help building owner’s reduce costs, they also help tenants with smart solutions that keep them happy. Applications for personal control of lighting, HVAC, access control, and much more all start with one common thing, IoT devices such as sensors, actuators, software and computer devices. Find out how the IoT Community is leading the smart building revolution. Hear how new and innovative applications are unifying the in-building experience. These then are integrated with evolving AI solutions to improve the overall quality of experience. We will begin with an overview of what many consider the smartest building in the USA at this time – District 555 and then explore how IoT devices, apps and smart technology make all this possible.


The IoT Community continues to shape and advance the narrative around IoT in Smart Buildings; at the IoT Day Slam 2020 conference, IoT Community will take the opportunity to unveil it’s newly formed Smart Building IoT Center of Excellence (SBIoTCoE) framework, helping Improve the occupant’s Quality of Experience (QoE), increase the owner’s revenues, and lower operational costs through the adoption and application of IoT solutions in smart buildings. The CoE will work with the various stakeholders and industry leaders to develop and improve in-building IoT strategies and implementations. Provide learnings, best practices, and technical information to speed the decision making and implementation of IoT solutions within buildings. This panel will discuss how IoT is enabling buildings to become smarter and presents a person-centric seamless experience enabled by interoperable devices, systems and applications that exchange actionable data as needed. The panel will discuss how IoT devices and applications facilitate data capture and actuation, bringing bricks and mortar to digital life.
