Ken Sinclair’s Automated Buildings September, 2017 Theme: “Getting There from Here,” The Shift of Thought and Action We Need to Make

In his omniscient September edition of, Ken Sinclair, summons us to accept and respond to the inevitable changes facing our industry, and to think young and differently, as in: People-powered, self-driving buildings, from the intelligent self-learning, self-acting edge!

Excerpts from Ken’s September editorial: “Our smart building automation industry needs to follow the auto industry in reinventing ourselves to look and think like the self-learning software companies we are morphing into. Who will become the new Building Data Architects and the virtual building software companies of our future?

How will we create value from our new found data and bring it back to the hive to discover new ways of providing comfort, health, satisfaction in our buildings?

One very positive part of our transformation is that the new feedstock of people assets “the new kids on the block” who are coming into our industry are creators and makers and very well understand IoT views plus the importance of open and standards. In addition, they dislike our propitiatory approaches and reside on the opposite side of transformation urging us to change our ways.
