Controlco’s Chip Cummings tells the ControlTrends Community about the KODARO’s packaged analytics for contractors, which is coupled with the TOSIBOX for an encrypted secure network, and OPTIGO, for speed of light data processing and integrity, and the Dell Edge Gateway with ported Niagara 4.

The man, the myth, the legend, Ken Smyers caught up with a Smart Building Controls Legend, and a soon to be legend at the 2018 Niagara Summit. Hear what Alper Üzmezler, BASSG Managing Partner and CTO of Anka Labs and Brian Frank, Founder and President of SkyFoundry had to say about the 2018 Niagara Summit and smart building control trends.
Following the dazzling electronic imagery of the Niagara blue spread of connected data through a city landscape on three-screen wide presentation, Tridium’s Jim Bland, CEO and President, took the wand from the cyber maestro of the screen and handed it, figuratively, to the expectant audience of over 1000 global Niagara Community members — challenging them that NOW — is the time to really think outside the box, Disney example provided. The possibility of failure should no longer restrain the efforts to achieve the spectacular possibilities and payoffs of innovation. Borrowing from his own unique experiences with some of the most innovative minds on the planet, Jim shared his insights on how the Niagara team is re-igniting the spirit of innovation that started Tridium — and how the near 700,000 instances of Niagara, already connecting over 75,000,000 devices, is just the tip of the trillion dollar IoT iceberg.
Kevin Smith, Tridium’s CTO (and author of seven books) was next to take the stage, bringing the Niagara Community up-to-speed with Tridium’s mobile-first, people focused strategies and the flexible mechanisms available to scale Niagara from the edge to the cloud. Tridium’s pending release of N4.6, Edge 10.0, and Bulk Deploy will allow the Niagara Community even greater rates of acceleration and opportunities.
Breakouts were well attended and the Smart Buildings 3.0 by Jim Young, Co-founder and CEO of Realcomm, and Master Systems Integrator, The Systems Integrator of Tomorrow, hosted by Scott Cochrane, President and CEO of Cochrane Supply and Engineering, were to standing room only audiences.
Special thanks to Tridium’s Ed Merwin, Director, Vykon Automation Energy Security, for helping us summarize an amazing start to perhaps the best Niagara Summit yet!
The Niagara Summit 2018, held New Orleans Hyatt Regency, began under very festive and favorable conditions inside the Champions Square — as the world’s top Niagara Systems Integrators, Systems Distributors, OEMs, 3rd Party Solutions providers, and End Users — all gathered for the gala event. Also held earlier in the day, were the Niagara 4 Training Session and Developer Boot Camp. The masquerade masks were provided compliments of Cochrane Supply, who hosted a Masquerade Ball celebration later in the evening. More Niagara Summit 2018 information and video coverage to follow.
