IoT Affects BACnet How?

  1. 1. April 12, 2018 IoT Affects BACnet How? Duffy O’Craven, Quinda Inc. SESSION: T3-56 ROOM: 256
  2. 2. IoT Affects BACnet How? • Make clear at the start where we're going. I'll be bringing you through BACnet's history of outlasting all comers.
  3. 3. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What's BACnet got going for it? BACnet's plus-column: • interoperability • open • enduring • self-discoverable • not central configured
  4. 4. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What's IoT got going for it? The Internet of Things, I have to admit, is one of BACnet's better comers.
  5. 5. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What's IoT got going for it? IoT is so trendy, one definition is “everything that is good.”
  6. 6. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What's IoT got going against it? • Another definition of IoT is: “the world's most widely deployed Distributed Denial of Service bot-net.”
  7. 7. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What's makes IoT and BACnet different? IoT is almost exclusively wedded to wireless. BACnet is seeing almost no uptake for wireless.
  8. 8. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What's makes IoT and BACnet different? It is almost as though: one of them must not have gotten the memo.
  9. 9. IoT Affects BACnet How? • Where do IoT and BACnet overlap? IoT is good as a network of sensors. BACnet is good as a network of sensors.
  10. 10. IoT Affects BACnet How? Steam IQ (Peter Owens CEO) provides an IoT based ultrasonic steam trap monitor that installs easily. Steam is used to power cities (Paris and New York), run refineries, brew beer, sterilize instruments and heat colleges. Testing steam traps that regulate the flow of steam is labor- intensive, done manually once per year, and there are millions of steam traps in the United States. Very few are monitored due to cost.
  11. 11. IoT Affects BACnet How? • Where do IoT and BACnet overlap? IoT is good for collecting data to trend. BACnet is good for collecting data to trend.
  12. 12. IoT Affects BACnet How? Vata Verks (Alex Cheimets CEO) has developed a cheap and simple non-invasive water usage sensor which leverages fluctuating magnetic fields inside a building’s utility meters. The sensor installs without cutting pipes or spilling a drop. The sensor simply straps on, detects anomalies and leaks, tracks usage and costs, and analyzes and optimizes building performance.
  13. 13. IoT Affects BACnet How? Vata Verks is targeting an aggregate North American market valued at $2B and a distribution channel made up of 3rd party building service providers such as security, building automation, building analytics & optimization all in support of building owners, as well as other sectors. BACnet folks, that sound like familiar territory?
  14. 14. IoT Affects BACnet How? • Where do IoT and BACnet overlap? IoT is good at scheduling daily and weekly things. BACnet is good at scheduling daily and weekly things.
  15. 15. IoT Affects BACnet How? • Where do IoT and BACnet overlap? IoT is good for remote manual overrides. BACnet is good for remote manual overrides.
  16. 16. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What has IoT got that BACnet doesn't? • Onboarding a device at deployment is a piece of cake.
  17. 17. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What has IoT got that BACnet doesn't? • How come BACnet doesn't have similarly simple deployment?
  18. 18. IoT Affects BACnet How? • Whatever makes IoT great, BACnet can also have. Yes!
  19. 19. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What's makes IoT and BACnet different? Battery means no need to run service to that location. (but you'll want to put a sensor on that, to warn you when it needs maintenance.)
  20. 20. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What's makes IoT and BACnet different? Battery sensor – that's gonna run on a battery. (you'll want to put a sensor on that too, to warn you when it needs maintenance.)
  21. 21. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What's makes IoT and BACnet different? • Battery sensor takes from the energy budget; shortens the advertised battery life. • (everybody would rather hear you “say” that the battery lasts forever.)
  22. 22. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What's makes IoT and BACnet different? Why not just use a battery that lasts forever? • At least “say” that the battery lasts forever. What it's powering will become obsolete-- we live in a disposable economy.
  23. 23. IoT Affects BACnet How? • Why not just capitulate to IoT instead of competing? If a Smart lamp has a 25 yr LED bulb, but its crypto is cracked in the first five years, does the owner throw it out?
  24. 24. IoT Affects BACnet How? • Why not just capitulate to IoT instead of fighting against it? “Security is the new expiring filament.” - Rodney Hess
  25. 25. IoT Affects BACnet How? • Why not just capitulate to IoT instead of fighting against it? “If a device cannot be upgraded, when it is five years old, for the greater good, it should self- destruct.”
  26. 26. IoT Affects BACnet How? • Why not just capitulate to IoT instead of fighting against it? “If a device can be upgraded, then whoever has the crypto key for upgrade, owns it.”
  27. 27. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What makes IoT great, isn't anything that BACnet can't also have. If you pair winning applications and logistics with connectivity, you win.
  28. 28. IoT Affects BACnet How? • What IoT has, that BACnet ain't got, it'll get. “If we we had some ham, we could have ham and eggs, if we had some eggs." paraphrasing Groucho Marx.
