LonMark International has launched a new LonMark Certification Training and Testing suite that now provides the industry with a more accessible and global program. The program is fully online and self-paced, which offers students the new courses in building automation and the ability to study and prepare for the LonMark Certified Professional (LCP) test in the comfort of their office or home. Additional courses in LonWorks, Smart Cities, SmartGrid and others are in development. There is no longer a need to travel to a testing center making the program substantially more affordable and accessible.

The primary goal of the program is to create a proficiency standard helping to assure end users that they receive a solution that fits their exact installation and performance requirements.

The building automation and refresher classes are currently available in English and the LonMark Certified Professional test is available in English, German, and Spanish with Japanese in development.

The Continental Automated Buildings Association, through its Intelligent Buildings Council, has launched a collaborative research study entitled "Intelligent Buildings and the Impact of IoT".

The purpose of this research project is to examine the impact of the Internet of Things (IoT) as it relates to intelligent buildings. The proliferation of IoT deployed in buildings has caused a dramatic shift from "siloed" building systems to interconnected systems of devices and sensors that have the ability to collect and share data within and across buildings.

This scenario has created an opportunity to increase the efficiency, security, productivity, occupancy, comfort and profitability of buildings based on actionable data which can be analyzed remotely. The goal of this research therefore is to provide a comprehensive examination of all the major aspects of IoT related to buildings, including: the state of the market, trends, business opportunities, technical barriers and opportunities, future market direction, along with case studies and industry recommendations.

One of the most ambitious residential projects in Spain is the Altos del Hipódromo neighborhood, in which all 48 homes and private social club are automated, monitored, and centrally and remotely controlled. The client wanted to integrate all the various subsystems such as lighting, blinds, HVAC, heated doors, access control, intrusion and technical alarms in each of the homes and social club as well as street lighting that could be scheduled and controlled by sunlight intensity level. The ultimate goal is for the entire neighborhood to be connected to a central supervision station where the security personnel can manage all the home alarms and each home featured an intuitive HMI where users could watch and control all the subsystems of the house.

Smart Solutions enable cities to reduce their energy costs for street lighting by up to 80% and the maintenance costs by up to 50%. In addition, they help reduce CO2 emissions and "light pollution."

How these systems work, new concepts and technology around street lighting and a look forward at the future of street lighting are among the topics of the Smart Street Lighting Congress on November 3 in Aachen.

In an interesting mix of lectures and vendor sessions, experts will provide a broad overview of current and future-oriented system solutions, the current state of technology, and the most-discussed questions in the street lighting community. Vendors of smart street lighting solutions as well as energy experts of municipalities will talk about concepts, controls and secure communication of smart street lighting solutions.

The Congress, with an accompanying exhibition, will take place at the TEMA Pyramid in Aachen. There are still a few speaking slots and places available for sponsors, exhibitors and participants.
