How building controls are changing and where the market is going and some of the key factors determining the changing direction of the buildings control industry. They include IoT in packaged equipment, end-user dashboards, remote management, the need for data cybersecurity, and competitive costing. Outdated software applications that are complicated to configure will lose out to newer “next generation software” able to offer end users and those who install and commission systems a simpler and easier way to interact and manage buildings. The adoption of data standardization will enable the various building systems to become more easily integrated than has been possible previously.
