While smart buildings have been traditionally associated with technology such as building automation or IoT, the focus is now shifting from technology to user experience. We’ve identified seven attributes: Personalize, Find, Optimize, Communicate, Conserve, Control and Secure. Putting the user experience at the centre of the design process and using technology as a “means to an end, not the end itself” will enable the industry to deliver buildings that are fit for purpose. The IoT is central to this process, as increasingly, buildings will be driven by data. Using the data available through IoT allows more informed decision-making related to facility operations and the use of the building by its occupants.
