Our ControlTrends interview with KMC’s VP of Business Development, Scott Taylor, at the vendor show at the 2018 Realcomm|IBcon Conference was a great opportunity to hear the latest from KMC Controls, who offers one of the industry’s most comprehensive array of options that allow contractors to use the right-sized and right-priced software tool, namely, the KMC Commander, for small to mid-sized buildings. And, as Scott says, “Our industry is evolving and we are seeing innovations where contractors are leasing connectivity (in lieu of traditional service contracts) that embed the contractor with their customers, while generating recurring revenue.”
Congratulations to a Summit well done! Richard Newberry, Tim Vogel, and team KMC Controls delivered another three-part agenda of product and technical training, motivation and industry insight, and networking and entertainment in a compressed and energized two days of Genius Summit at Chicago’s luxurious Langham Hotel. The best news yet, is that KMC Controls is ready to share the majority of the breakout sessions that were filmed. They will be available in the coming weeks… stay tuned!
Catch all the excitement as the global ControlTrends Community crowns the 2016 Light Commercial Controls Solution of of the Year Award winner. In this case, it will take two crowns as both KMC Controls and Proton Optergy get recognized for their outstanding solutions.
Award winning KMC Controls is proud to be a partner with Dell as the building automation industry leaps into the 21st century. The introduction of IoT to building automation systems is changing the way that occupants interact with their environment, their level of comfort, and the efficiency of buildings. Go ahead, we don’t mind if you call us building geniuses.
KMC Commander is a complete IoT platform for building automation that forms an end-to-end solution, from sensors and controllers (edge devices) to cloud-based remote management applications. Remote visualization and control are enabled via a cloud-hosted, mobile application based architecture with secure data access. The solution features embedded processing and security technology from Intel®, engineering and design collaboration with Dell OEM, and tagging and visualization software framework from J2 Innovations.
What do Dell and Intel have in common? Among other things they both are partners with KMC and the New Commander Smart Buildings Control System that is designed to win the “Race to the Small Space.” The Race to the Small Space is a term Kenny and I coined to describe the building automation control solutions, that companies, like KMC, are designing to provide affordable energy management and controls solutions for the over 5 million buildings in the United States that do not have energy management control systems. KMC’s Richard Newberry walks us through the KMC solutions that make buildings smarter and building automation control systems more affordable.
Will the KMC Commander be a Smart Buildings Controls Game Changer?
To find out the answer to this question, our Rob Allen, chats with KMC’s Richard Newberry at the KMC Controls 2015 Business Conference. Richard is the Chairman and advisor to the KMC Board of Directors.
Listening to Richard speak, it is no wonder KMC Controls is known for their innovative Building Automation and Smart Buildings Controls.
Every great company has a great mission. Ricard explains that KMC’s mission is to “provide innovative, intuitive building automation and Smart Buildings Controls solutions from responsive and supportive people.”
Richard tells Rob how the KMC Commander was developed and about the unique partnership with KMC, Dell and Intel.
It is a major contender in what Ken Smyers and I call the “Race to The Small Space.”
Richard explains it is the only open building automation and Smart Buildings control system that is “open, secure, and scaleable.”
From what we can see,in addition to meeting KMC mission requirements, the KMC Commander should be a Smart Building Controls game changer.
