- Smart Connected Buildings
Ed Richards, Director Emerging Technolgy Group Smart +Connected Buildings, Cisco Systems
This presentation will provide an overview of what "Smart Connected Buildings" are and their benefits to the occupants as well as the building owners and facilities managers. It will also cover the technology that provides the intelligence to interconnect and enable building systems such as heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC), lighting, electrical, security over the IP network to build the smart and sustainable buildings of the future. This technology provides campuses with new ways of measuring, monitoring and managing their buildings in real time as well as how energy is used based on policies that make sense. It will also cover how using this approach provides for intelligent energy monitoring and management by integrating with the utility SmartGrid.
