As businesses reopen and the workforce returns to the office full-time or in shared hybrid models, facility managers are looking for fresh updates to legacy OT systems. Smart building solutions can be a valuable asset, allowing businesses to tailor an automation and control profile to workspaces or buildings based on need and occupancy.
The smart building market is now starting to rise, and MarketsandMarkets projects the sector to grow to $108+ billion by 2025. Fueling the growth is the rising adoption of IoT-enabled building management automation systems that bring building data, visualization, and control to the cloud.
The latest generation of intelligent building control solutions uses IoT data and AI-driven analytics to track, trend, and trigger building operational systems. This helps facilities better regulate energy usage and occupancy and maintain healthier, clean-air workspaces with optimal climate comfort for employees. This technology also helps facilities monitor building access and security, track and measure air quality, and manage a host of environmental parameters critical in fending off COVID-19 outbreaks, such as room ventilation.
Merging OT with Modern IoT Building Controls
To understand what’s possible with building control technology, view our on-demand webinar with KMC Controls and Arrow Electronics. Learn how to bring a wide-scale approach to your smart building strategy and deliver cloud-based building solutions to your customers that tap into the power of IoT and artificial intelligence.
Speakers in the webinar include:Tim Vogel, Director of IoT, at KMC Controls, and Sam Oliver, Business Development Manager, US Edge Computing & IoT, at Arrow Electronics.
Vogel provides an overview of KMC Commander™, an open, IoT platform designed to help solution integrators solve immediate needs for building control while providing a long-term solution for an IoT strategy. He also discusses one of the biggest challenges in building automation: how to connect legacy OT building systems and modern IoT controls.
