One of the really cool things about covering shows like Realcomm|IBcon is that we quite often get first looks at new vendors and technologies. Although wireless sensors are not new to Smart Buildings, Monnit’s approach and product offering are. Check this video out to see why.
So many systems, so many cables, so many wires, it get’s so complicated so fast.

Someone once asked American gangster and bank robber, John Dillinger, why he robbed banks and his answer was “because that is where the money is.” Using that same logic, it makes sense that Smart Building Control Pros go to RealComm|IBcon.

How is Tridium adapting and particapating in the IOT and Smart Building Controls Renaissance? Watch this conversation and see what the future holds for Tridium.
We talk a lot about how quickly things are changing in the world of building automation and smart building controls. In the Smart Buildings Controls Renaissance, the big question we are all asking is how to survive and thrive in these new realities. We have looked at this from the perspectives of systems integrators, consulting engineers, and owners. But what about the proverbial middleman, the distributor?
We had the good fortune to catch up with Brian Turner, who has taken his company ControlCo, a successful, well established controls distributor, and reinvented and reorganized the company as a way to embrace the new realities of the Smart Buildings Controls Renaissance.
Hear what Brian has done and get his thoughts on how to avoid some of the pitfalls inherent in trying to make a building smarter. Great job Brian!
Somethings are great in theory but are disastrous in reality. Bringing all your building systems under one front end, or “single pane of glass,” is one of those things that sounds great, but does it really work? What are the pitfalls? The unintended consequences? The benefits?
In this video John Guardiola,from Bedrock, and Jason Houck, Hepta Systems, answer these questions and offer perspectives and advice that are priceless. John, the vice president of Engineering and Sustainability, walks us through why Bedrock made the decision to bring all their disparate building operating systems under one platform, how they chose to work with Hepta Systems, and the benefits and savings that have been realized from this move.
ControlTrends Awards “Young Gun,” and Master Systems Integrator extraordinaire, Jason Houck, from Hepta Systems, talks about the challenges and best practices needed to complete and exceed expectations on a project of this size and scope. Jason even offers suggestions on the best way for owners to qualify a master systems integrator for smart buildings controls projects of this type.
Great job guys!
Ken and I, the ControlTrends Guys, normally the interviewers, had the table turned on us — as we became the interviewees, at the 2017 RealComm|IBcon in San Diego. Jerry asked us some challenging questions that allowed us the opportunity to highlight the ControlTrends Community, review the hot button trends in our industry and how they relate to the RealComm|IBcom Community, as well as talk about some of the great people, solution providers, MSIs, and vendors leading the way in the Building Automation industry. Hear the questions, and our answers, and let us know how we did on the other side of the interview experience.
