One of the challenges to building automation is the multitude of non-interoperable communications protocols that have evolved over the years. Buildings have several islands of automation. Bridging the islands of different automation without losing the considerable investment in each specialized control network is the main focus in this solution.

In the Buildings space, connecting to the data in various systems has always been difficult and complicated; controlling those systems was even harder. The number of proprietary gateways, layers of complicated technology, and disparate programming languages has made it impossible to effectively collect and analyze data or control the various systems in the building without monstrous, bloated building automation applications.

Energy costs continue to increase globally, driven by the depletion of fossil fuels, geopolitical instability and disruptions in the global supply chain. At the same time, organizations are constantly thriving to reduce overheads and minimize the cost of the operations. Current challenges include lack of instrumentation to get the energy consumption details and lack of tools to visualize and analyze the energy consumption patterns. This hinders stakeholders from taking any meaningful action to optimize energy consumption and reduce the overall energy cost.GOALS• Develop an ‘energy command center’ that is able to provide visibility into energy consumption across the campus• Provide various tools to compare, predict and analyze energy consumption and performance• Provide IT governance with the help of alerts, notification, workflows, ticketing and augmented reality tools to facilitate the operations

Augury -
Augury is redefining the predictive maintenance industry by bringing its proprietary algorithms, smart sensing device and mobile diagnostics tool to new markets, starting with diagnosing HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) systems within commercial buildings. They are building the mechanical diagnostics platform of the IoT.
Switch Automation -
Switch Automation is a leading provider of automation and smart building solutions for commercial buildings, property portfolios, apartments and homes. We were the first in the industry to launch an entirely cloud-based, on-demand Intelligent Building Platform featuring a comprehensive range of green building automation, data aggregation and analytics services.We understand that being truly green means understanding exactly how, when and where your building or property portfolio uses resources like energy and water, knowing when equipment fails to operate properly in real time, and proactively addressing issues that arise...and we know that getting such detailed information can be difficult. Switch makes it easy with real time energy and operational data monitoring, analytics and control for every room or device, to the hour, minute and second of the day. You can use this data to pinpoint exactly how to tune your building or portfolio to run at its most efficient.Switch's web-based Intelligent Building Platform enables all users to get real value out of their property data – from property developers who assess the performance of their buildings, to property managers responsible for tuning buildings to satisfy regulatory and tenant requirements. It also helps building owners seeking the most efficient building operations to minimise utility and maintenance costs, lower total cost of ownership and report on their operational performance, greenhouse gas emissions and green building ratings. Our technology integrates a wide range of sensors, field controllers and edge devices, such as smart meters, building management systems and renewable power sources, and provides local environmental information from weather stations and RSS feeds to put your building operations data into context.

Until now, commercial buildings have traditionally been controlled and monitored by monolithic, domain-specific systems. But now, the IoT has arrived in commercial buildings, and it is rapidly disrupting the space. Integration of standards-based wireless networks in low-cost sensors and controllers are providing building owners with much more granular data.Powerful software platforms built on standard IT environments permit powerful analytics and visualizations to drive energy efficiency, comfort, and interactivity with the occupants. New applications merge digital identity with digital credentials, leverage facial recognition and video analytics in cameras at the edge, and aggregate space occupancy and utilization data from multiple streams, to make buildings more responsive and lower the carbon footprint. At this event, we will discuss our perspectives on IoT and how it will transform commercial buildings.
