Episode 235: ControlTalk NOW — Smart Buildings PodCast for week ending August 13, 2017 features two insightful interviews with Marc Petock, Lynxspring’s Chief Communications Officer & Vice President, Marketing, and Aaron Gorka, Innovation Manager for ANT Technologies. Check out ACI’s European Smart Homes 2017; ControlTrends Discovers Monnit Wireless Sensors at Realcomm|IBcon 2017; Belimo’s Correcting Low Delta T Webinar: Internet of Things (IoT); Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2017; The Dark Web Goes Corporate; NIST Cybersecurity for IoT Program; and Therese Sullivan: Appreciating How Metadata Makes Artificial Intelligence Possible.
Internet of Things (IoT) Cybersecurity Improvement Act of 2017 Introduced by Senators Mark Warner, Cory Gardner, Ron Wyden, and Steve Daines. On August 1, 2017, the U.S. Government took a significant “lead by example” step forward in the battle of Internet of Things (IoT) security. Chief among the vendor commitments — that must be made to the U.S.Government: That their IoT devices are patchable; that the devices don’t contain known vulnerabilities; and that the devices don’t contain hard-coded passwords.
ACI’s European Smart Homes 2017 will be taking place in London, UK, on 25th & 26th of October 2017.Join European Smart Homes 2017 conference on 25th & 26th October in London, UK and hear John Hutchins’ presentation entitled “Smart Homes and Utility Customer Experience – exploring the link between smart homes, connected devices and better customer experience for utility customers.”
The Dark Web Goes Corporate, by Josh Fruhlinger, CSO. By Josh Fruhlinger, CSO. The “dark web” is a phrase strikes an ominous tone, conveying an impression of a marketplace where anything is for sale: hacking tools, weapons, drugs, child pornography, even freelance assassination services. And according to experts we spoke to, all of that’s still true. But something has changed in the way the dark web does business. If there was a time when venturing online to buy these illegal items was like taking your life in your hands in a dark alley, today the experience in quite different.
ControlTrends Discovers Monnit Wireless Sensors at Realcomm|IBcon 2017. 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. Monnit remote monitoring systems can be setup in just a few minutes and our intuitive interface makes managing your system a snap, and Mommit’s optimized RF communications platform provides superior wireless range for covering large areas.
Ken’s Calendar: Belimo’s Correcting Low Delta T Webinar, Wednesday, August 23 at 1:00 PM EDT. Chilled water provided from a utility plant is commonly used in a building’s HVAC system in lieu of installing chillers. This results in lower return water temperatures which decreases the efficiency of the entire chilled water system resulting in the condition known as “Low ∆T Syndrome.” In this webinar we will review the design of a district chilled water system and discuss a study of a building where “Low ∆T Syndrome” was corrected at the point of water to air heat transfer.
NIST Cybersecurity for IoT Program (20.8 Billion Connected Devices in Use by 2020). Though each of us, in our own way and at our speed, has willingly or unwillingly, become more acclimated and accepted the rapid proliferation of IoT devices connecting us to the data bases in the clouds, it is still a challenge to fully comprehend the impact this hatching reality will have on our personal lives and professional careers — and we probably should know a lot more. Among the many sources of valuable insight and guidance available to ControlTrends Community, the NIST’s Cybersecurity for the Internet of Things is certainly one of the best.
Therese Sullivan: Appreciating How Metadata Makes Artificial Intelligence Possible. Therese Sullivan, editor of BuildingContext.me, and our ControlTrends’ eyes and ears from Silicon Valley, takes us on a data journey that begins at the ethereal origins of Artificial Intelligence (Dartmouth, 1956) and delivers us to metadata and Project Haystack — introducing some of the label makers in between.
ControlTalk NOW’s first interview is with industry veteran Marc Petock, Lynxspring‘s Chief Communications Officer & Vice President, Marketing. Marc first updates the ControlTrends Community on the 2017 Lynxspring Exchange, which is open to everybody. This will be the best Exchange ever.
