CNS’s post “Cracks in the Cloud” regarding cloud based Building Management Systems (BMS) and smart, Internet of Things (IoT) lighting controls, along with the fundamental issues surrounding them, has been adapted and accepted into the Knowledge Library of the International Facility Management Association (IFMA.)
IFMA is the world’s largest and most widely recognised international association for facility management professionals, supporting over 24,000 members in 104 countries.
Mike Welch, Managing Director of CNS, says: “I am proud to see our knowledge on cloud based BMS and smart IoT lighting has been accepted into the IFMA Knowledge Library. Our work can now be reached by those looking into best practise in lighting control solutions, and will demonstrate that cloud based solutions create more questions than answers, particularly around ownership, security and autonomy.
“The report will also demonstrate that systems such as elitedali, for example, are the ideal solution for building owners and managers. The elitedali technology allows smart lighting controls to be seamlessly converged into the building’s existing Niagara BMS, and has been created with the Internet of Things in mind. The use of this convergent, interoperable smart lighting control solution provides the user with confidence, autonomy and certainty over their lighting control system and its data.”
