The ultimate Internet of Things (IoT) Smart Building dream is having an abundance of devices and sensors deployed across a building, interacting with one another to proactively and analytically respond to various events, needs, and desires. The device and sensor markets are ripe with products to fulfill our every IoT dream: Want to use your phone to dim the conference room lights? – check! Want your office temperature activated to a certain degree when you drive into the building garage? – check! Want your order at the lobby coffee shop ready 30 minutes after leaving the house? – check! We have entered an age of technology in which nearly everything we want is – literally – at our fingertips. However, for all devices and sensors to work together in harmony to bring our dreams to reality, required protocols and protocol integration must be fully understood.
