About this Course
The IES offers Educational Webinars throughout the year, purposefully spanning a broad range of topics and speaker expertise. Synergistic Buildings in the Era of IoT was a live webinar, now available as an archived webinar and CEU course.
Description: A technological introduction to the interconnected concept of synergistic systems through IoT connectivity within the built world. Attendees will gain a conversational understanding of the technological and market fundamentals required to design and implement a practical information based building solution. Careful analysis will be given to the associated advantages and tradeoffs of these style systems given the technology that exists in the marketplace currently, as well as what is emerging.
By the end of this course learners will be able to...
1. Define a Synergistic Building System and how it differs from building management systems, and individual control solutions (lighting, HVAC, security, etc.).
2. Discuss the practical definition of IoT in the built world, and the idea of a sensory network.
3. Define Hot Data, and explain how it relates to the idea of synergistic buildings, and plays into a building's ROI story.
4. Discuss the current market conditions surrounding the practical deployment of IoT technology within the lighting space.
