Webcast: IoT and Smart Buildings: The New Construct

Date: Wednesday, September 20, 11:00 AM ET

Real estate developers, owners and tenants are rethinking the office building experience.  Not only are buildings becoming increasingly efficient in in-door energy management and operations, they are also beginning to interact with the people who work within the walls, and with the out of doors environment. This type of sentient building design is making use of increased connectivity to and in buildings, as well as the use of sensors and IoT applications. This webcast will discuss communications and connectivity infrastructure that is being deployed in and to current real estate developments; what building owners, operators and tenants expect; the impact smart community development is having on smart buildings; and sample smart building IoT applications.
