BSRIA launch smart technology topic guide
In January 2016, BSRIA launched a new, free topic guide to ‘smart technology’ providing an introduction to key aspects of the subject, with concise and factual information helping to explain recent technological trends.
The term ‘smart’ is increasingly applied to a very wide range of systems and applications, with smart homes and buildings beginning to make use of the many devices that can be integrated into the Internet of Things.
The report looks at recent developments for smart homes and commercial buildings, with simple diagrams to help explain how the integration of various devices works. It also provides guidance on the standard open protocols for intelligent buildings.
Author of the guide, Jeremy Towler, BSRIA’s Senior Manager – Energy and Smart Technologies, said: “With so many new products incorporating sophisticated hard and software appearing in the market and with the majority of people now toting a smartphone, it is not surprising that IoT is forecast to grow at a phenomenal pace. It promises to deliver a plethora of new applications and benefits. This topic guide lays out some of the most important developments in smart technology and is designed to help the reader navigate this rapidly evolving area.”
