The May 12 meeting of CABA’s Intelligent Buildings Council (IBC) will be open to guests, unlike typical IBC meetings, which are available to CABA members only. The 90-minute meeting, which begins at 12:00 noon EDT on May 12, will include a 30-minute presentation of data on the smart buildings market from Smart Buildings Technology’s chief editor Patrick McLaughlin.
Describing the market presentation, CABA explained, “Taken from fresh research into the North American smart buildings industry, this presentation will detail drivers of smart-system adoption, deterrents to adoption, the building systems most commonly equipped with intelligence, plans for future adoption, and more. The data incorporates responses from a cross-section of the professional ecosystem serving smart buildings. The presentation provides insights into the property types with the highest prevalence of smart systems, factors affecting the decision to invest in smart technologies, and capabilities that users expect to gain by incorporating smart systems.”
CABA’s IBC works to strengthen the large building automation industry through innovative technology-driven research projects. CABA established the IBC in 2001 to review opportunities, take strategic action, and monitor initiatives that relate to integrated systems and automation in the large building sector. The council’s projects promote the next generation of intelligent building technologies, and incorporate a holistic approach that optimizes building performance and savings.
