Christine Boles, Director of Intel’s Internet of Things Group, shares her vision of a smart and connected future where systems and objects around us seamlessly predict and respond to consumer needs.
In October, Intel announced the general availability of the Intel Building Management Platform (Intel BMP), originally announced at IBCon in June. Intel BMP, integrated with CANDI PowerTools, is designed to help small and medium sized buildings become smart and connected with the help of Intel partners like CANDI, Advantech and Microsoft.
Intel BMP provides a foundational platform to connect disparate building equipment and devices to cloud-based services and applications by retrofitting legacy systems with sensors, allowing them to avoid a costly “rip and replace” approach. Once building systems are brought online, Intel BMP provides a secure way to deliver real-time data to cloud-based building management interfaces like Lucid BuildingOS®, offering actionable data insights that can reduce operating costs and increase building efficiency.
With the capability to connect key building assets including HVAC systems, lighting controls and electrical meters, building managers can reach the ambitious sustainability goals driving smart building and smart city development.
