May 21, 2013 8 AM PDT: Power of Profiles - Register Today!

This session will provide an overview of device-function profiling and discuss the importance of this concept in creating interoperable systems. The session will elaborate on the concept of tightly defined information sharing in a contextual framework that allows integrators to have full control over the customization of a system for their clients – using off-the-shelf devices from a variety of vendors. For the end user the benefits of interoperability are combined with the standardization of profiled functions for thermostats, air handlers, lights, elevators, smoke alarms, and more. Attendees will be shown how strong data typing and profiling produce the building blocks for open controls systems.
Speaker: Jeremy J. Roberts, LonMark Technical Director
