Smart Buildings & the Internet of Things, a breakfast briefing on 5th March 2014, will address how recent advances in data gathering and analysis are opening up new possibilities in smart building technology and the ‘connected home’.
This is the first of two events focusing on Big Data and Cleantech within Cleantech Investor's ‘Smart Future’ series.
The Internet of Things - the connection of physical objects (through embedded sensors and actuators) via wired and wireless networks - is currently one of the biggest fields of innovation within information technology. The Internet of Things will have an impact at both the residential and commercial level. Residential applications will include the remote control of in-home appliances. For commercial buildings, a Building Management System (BMS) can learn and even anticipate the needs of a buildings’ occupants, including their preferences for light, temperature and other services, resulting in energy savings through targeted supply.
The US$3.2 billion acquisition of Nest Labs Inc. by Google in January 2014 highlights the keen investor and corporate interest in the role of data in the built environment. Google had been an investor in Nest, whose thermostats and smoke alarms are enabling the ‘connected home’, since 2011.
At this event, Cleantech Investor will bring together experts in sensor networks, product development and in-home applications to explore the future of smart buildings and assess the investment opportunities within the connected home and BMS spaces.
Join us on 5th March to discover what opportunities lie ahead.
Smart Buildings and the Internet of Things will be hosted by Smith & Williamson at its offices in Moorgate, in the City of London.
Cleantech Investor organises events on cleantech, renewable energy and related themes, both in the UK and Brazil.
