Have you wondered about how the Internet of Things [IoT] is changing the way we build? If so, you may be interested in reading this post. You may immediately think of wearables or intelligent buildings, which is a good start. However, if you really delve into all the ways IoT touches your daily work practices, you may be surprised. This BuildingTech Insider post covers just some of the many ways IoT is transforming the way we build.
Today’s building systems are dynamic. They functionally integrate to minimize energy consumption, decrease water usage, increase indoor air quality, reduce operational costs, and minimize environmental impact. Buildings are being designed to deliver services to make occupants more productive (e.g. lighting, comfortable climate, indoor air quality, physical security, sanitation, etc.) at the lowest cost over it’s lifetime. There's a lot to love about their intelligence.
