Connected Lighting Catalyzes Intelligent Building Transformation

The growth of the intelligent buildings market reflects alignment between technology innovation and customer expectations. Increasingly cost-effective devices and subscription software analytics offer building owners and managers new insights into the economic, energy, environmental, and experience impacts of their facility operations. Although intelligent building technologies are mature, many customers struggle to differentiate among options available in the market and to define an investment strategy that employs their existing technologies and delivers the greatest value.

Under the umbrella of the intelligent building is a large range of offerings from integrated automation and controls that optimize system performance with enhanced analytics to standalone software suites that use data from existing technology or data streams. Although the shifting intelligent buildings landscape can provide new opportunities for market players, it has created challenges for stakeholders, including vendors.
