Automatically Smart

Lots of focus on the term “Smart Buildings” and what that might mean.
 
Albert Einstein gives us good advice;

“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”

He goes on “creativity is intelligence having fun” & “imagination is more import than knowledge”

And my personal favourite “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”

We need to think differently.

Our contributing editor Jim Sinopoli states;  The “Defining a Smart Building” topic will probably end up being five to six articles; I’m trying to put some details around the abstraction of a smart building.

Yikes five to six articles around the abstraction?  This means defining “Smart Building” is huge or is a true smart building an automatic interaction with all we know?

Allan McHale a regular contributor states;  IT CAN BE ACHIEVED BY INTERFACING SMART BUILDINGS WITH THE PRESENT “SMART GRID” AND PROVIDE DEMAND RESPONSE AND DISTRIBUTED ENERGY CAPABILITY THROUGH A COMBINATION OF USING ADVANCED BUILDINGS ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (BEMS) AND ENTERPRISE ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (EEM)

As an industry we need to evolve smarter; so that we are “Automatically Smart”, and include whatever the definition of smart and our interaction with all that is smart includes.

Understanding the abstraction and major components of smart is our new mission and AutomatedBuildings.com is committed to helping you understand it well enough that you can explain smart building  simply….. with Albert’s help we will all think differently...... “smarter”

As always this new issue is a nest of great articles, columns, reviews, new products, interviews and of course the steady stream of news depicting our rapidly evolution and journey to
“Automatically Smart”.
