“Power to the People, Power to the People, Ride on…..”
These lyrics are in a song written by the great John Lennon. If John had known our friend Ken Sinclair or attended his Connection Community Collaboratory, the lyrics would have been more like this:
“Power of the People, Power of the People, Ride on”
Everyday we see technology advancements in the Smart Building’s controls market, better controllers, better software and better analytics. Is there a correlation between how good a technology can be and the people that use it? This is just one of the questions that, the ever insightful, Ken Sinclair, poses to a group of Industry Experts at this year’s Connection Community Collaboratory, entitled “The Power of People, an Industry Discussion.”
ControlTrends captures this Event as Industry thought leaders discuss their views on productivity, occupant engagement, and comfort. If we only consider energy as the justification, then we are missing the bigger issue – the impact on the building environment and ultimately, people.
