It’s no secret that technology is advancing at an incredible rate, with Green Building and Smart buildings becoming more of a reality. In some ways, the pandemic slowed us down, but in other ways, it propelled us ahead affecting every aspect of our lives. We are now in a place where economic recovery will be slow and budgets will continue to remain low, but the demand for IoT technology will continue to increase – so how do we design for today’s budgetary restraints and still lay the groundwork to deploy future technology easily down the road.
In this presentation, we will look at what technology we might expect to see in the next 3-5 years and look at what we have in our tool belt now that will form the basis of that future tech. With a little planning, we can pave the way for seamless future expansion.
