Digital transformation of a building requires devices to talk to each other, be interoperable, capable of self-diagnosis, and be able to always stay connected. These features enable innovation and use cases that immensely benefit not only the occupants but also real estate owners, system integrators, and service contractors.
Organizations have been in a relentless pursuit to refine their strategies and contribute to the next generation of smart buildings. Their application of existing technology for this very purpose formed interesting use cases, but they did not innovate further due to closed systems. Moreover, the building automation industry struggled to adopt existing technologies and had to rely on the legacy systems, standards, and processes that delayed the innovation.
The scenario changed with the introduction of open standard BACnet (Building Automation Control Network).
