1. Convergence; what is it really good for and its market-disruptive impact?
- Enables choice of who delivers, who operates & maintains and with what.
- Offers more sustainable solutions that deliver:
Less installed equipment – Lower parasitic energy – Less negative environmental impact (fewer resources to make less and less to throw away at the end of life)
Buiding Services Research & Information Association (BSRIA) “Convergence – What is it good for?” presentation enumerates the benefits, read more click here.
2. End Client requirements; what are they really looking for and why?
- Real-time device level value data
- Health & wellness benefits, click here to read more
- Energy saving whilst addressing sustainability issues
3. The role of international open interoperable standards in smart building & lighting control?
They deliver highly vendor-independent solutions that:
- Enable greater choice in the supply of product and who installs, commissions and provides future operations and maintenance
- Increase choice of solutions and delivery channels.
- Therefore it delivers best of breed!
- Is every international and published communications standard offering intelligent device level interoperability? NO!
- To understand the difference between communication standards and interoperable communication standards (e.g. ZigBee IEEE 802.15.4, EnOcean ISO/IEC 14543-3-10 and DALI IEC 62386) there are 5 Key questions to ask to establish how interoperable is the offered solution.

4. Demand side management and security of supply;
- Base load generation and supply side issues resulting in emerging short to medium crisis in electrical supply
- For electrical load shedding, smart IoT lighting control is the best option at enabling this, with minimum impact on space output or the people operating within that space.
