You’ve heard it all before – the future of building systems is no longer static. Customers expect building data, automation, and technology. And, with global revenue for building automation systems expected to increase 4.5% compounded annually over the next 10 years, there is immense opportunity to deliver greater connectivity and intelligence to the existing built environment. So, where do you start?

A strong smart building foundation starts with 4 key areas: connectivity, cybersecurity, serviceability, and resilience. Addressing these through building controls and automation is the key to creating spaces that prioritize performance and energy efficiency without sacrificing occupant comfort.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss how engineers and contractors can get started, and the resources available to help you through every step – from design to installation, operation, and beyond.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Explore market trends driving customer demands and technological changes.
  • Learn how connectivity begins with equipment while integration flexibility accommodates the use of existing technologies from design through install.
  • Understand how and when to involve IT while addressing cybersecurity, IP, and integration needs to ensure seamless implementation.
  • Learn about new technology and tools available to help design and install a smart system.
