IoT System Architectures of BMS, LMS & BIM
As work package leader and author of the first public OpenAIS research report “D1.1 Selected Scenarios and Use Cases” John last year talked about the detail behind the headlines of the stakeholder research of this project partly sponsored by the H2020 funding program: Easy Life; Increased Building Value; Building Wide Ecosystem.
As work continues towards a real life pilot installation the teams are now resolving practical issues. ‘Where is the automation logic defined?” “What software is in charge?” “Where is the software running and where is the data held or moved to?” “What is this CO2 sensor doing in my luminaire?”
Looking today at what could be done by a BMS or LMS or both emphasizes the choices and opportunities for innovators that will be allowed by the OpenAIS architecture. Technical and business models could be reinvented. Getting this right can expand the controlled lighting market and be a great benefit to suppliers and consumers. The report touches upon the worlds of BMS, LMS and the emergence of BIM. IoT will impact how things are done and how they are sold. What can we infer from this to be ready for business in the future?
