It's interesting that at least 80 percent of all new homes, commercial buildings and infrastructure incorporate one aspect of smart technology such as smart lighting, HVAC controls or security.
However, implementing smart technology into buildings can have its challenges. Presently, building users and owners, who thought such equipment would solve all their problems, can be faced with data overload. Coupled with uncertainty about which solutions to use, complex decisions need to be made so that an ROI over time can be achieved within business constraints.
With smart building solutions having a higher initial cost, how can those seeking to invest ensure that they will not only install a best in class solution, but also get the most out of any technology that they already have?
