Authored by James Dice from Nexus Labs and published in July 2022, this report delves into the challenges of integrating disparate technologies and standalone systems across rooms, floors, and buildings. The report suggests an integration approach through a horizontal architecture comprising distinct layers: device, network, independent data (housing a data model), and application (with a user-friendly app). Despite the clear solution proposed, the author acknowledges the ongoing complexity of this transformation process.
