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.</p> 8/19/2016 9:48:56 AM http://www.naylornetwork.com/lmk-nwl/articles/index-v4.asp?aid=395564&amp;issueID=55304 Case Study Showcase: Altos del Hipodr&oacute;mo Neighborhood Home Automation In Madrid, Spain http://www.lonmark.org/connection/case_studies/documents/ISDE%20Case%20Study.pdf <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.naylornetwork.com/lmk-nwl/newsletter.asp?issueID=55304>August 2016</a> -- <em></em></strong><br />One of the most ambitious residential projects in Spain is the Altos del Hip&oacute;dromo neighborhood, in which all 48 homes and private social club are automated, monitored, and centrally and remotely controlled.

Our portfolio ranges from high-tech applications based on semiconductor technology, such as infrared or laser lighting, to smart and connected lighting solutions in buildings and cities. An area of competence for OSRAM is 'intelligent outdoor lighting'. Road lighting cannot only be switched on and off. Dimming enables illuminance levels to be adapted to current viewing requirements. A higher level of safety can therefore be attained with greater economic efficiency and functionality. Electricity, voltage, power consumption, lamp life and failures, as well as grid irregularities; are measurable and can help municipalities, utility companies, motorway and tunnel operators maximize the efficiency of their installation and minimize maintenance costs. OSRAM Street Light Control (SLC) is the innovative light management system for demand-oriented control and monitoring of up to thousands of individual outdoor luminaires. Street Light Control easily reduces the power consumption, CO2 emissions and light pollution; optimizing maintenance planning. The central element is the SLC software, where the user can view the entire street lighting system.</p> 6/14/2016 7:16:58 PM http://www.lonmark.org/membership/directory/member_info?CompanyID=2991 LonMark Certification Training and Testing Offered Online, Anywhere http://www.lonmark.org/training <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.naylornetwork.com/lmk-nwl/newsletter.asp?issueID=48041>June 2016</a> -- <em></em></strong><br />LonMark International has launched a new LonMark Certification Training and Testing suite that now provides the industry with a more accessible and global program.

LonMark Cono Sur: South America's Emerging Market South America is emerging as a leader in energy efficiency programs with Argentina taking a leadership role. LonMark Cono Sur, our LonMark Affiliate in South America, is working on implementing LonWorks solutions in order to comply with a series of new policies to improve energy efficiency including: controlling the distribution of power to generation fields as well as electricity consumption by residents. Several US manufacturers who provide open protocol technologies used for smart cities, smart grids and Building Management Systems are looking to expand their focus to the South American market. These companies have joint venture agreements in place with local counterparts, which are also financed by government programs to develop open and interoperable control systems. This will provide local companies an opportunity to manufacture and export their products while taking advantage of a skilled local work force and opportunities for investment incentives. Most of these contracts will start up later this year, but there is a search for small and medium size regional companies with capabilities to work with open control systems either in software or in hardware. This is a huge opportunity for LonMark Cono Sur to implement LonMark technology for energy efficient programs across South America. Currently LonMark Cono Sur and LonMark International are investing in the LonMark Certified Professional program in Spanish with both training and proficiency credentialing. There are already over 100 LonMark Certified Professionals in Latin America, Mexico, and the Caribbean covering Argentina, Aruba, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Dominican, Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Skilled installers, designers, and integrators are a key focus over the next few years for LonMark Cono Sur. There are aggressive programs in development to entice suppliers of open control networking solutions to venture into this market. LonMark Cono Sur can help interested companies gain a foothold in this emerging market. If you are a member of LonMark and have an interest in expanding in this region please contact the chairman of LonMark Cono Sur for more information: Hern&aacute;n Fagnilli hfagnilli@lonmark.la.</p> 4/15/2016 9:19:45 AM https://www.lonmark.la/en/ LonMark International Magazine: Now Available for Download http://www.lonmark.org/news_events/Magazine/LonMark%20Magazine%20January%202016.pdf <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.naylornetwork.com/lmk-nwl/newsletter.asp?issueID=48039>April 2016</a> -- <em></em></strong><br />The LonMark Magazine is the official publication of LonMark International, aimed at a variety of readers, including specifiers and planners, architects, developers, systems and network integrators, researchers and end-users.

This Smart Lighting Control System project involved the modernization of the 1,150 lamps and replacement of 850 lighting poles and wiring on the 35 streets of Tychy. The project, known as SOWA, is an energy-efficient street lighting program, which was supported by grants and loans by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFEP&WM). Tychy is the only city in this voivodeship (Silesia) that qualified for this project.</p> 2/17/2016 1:26:00 PM http://www.lonmark.org/connection/case_studies/documents/Tychy Case Study_v3.pdf The New and Powerful LOYTEC L-IP Routers http://www.loytec.com <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.naylornetwork.com/lmk-nwl/newsletter.asp?issueID=48037>February 2016</a> -- <em></em></strong><br />The well-known L-IP routers have been revamped and come out in new, even more powerful models with a "C": The LIP-3ECTC and LIP-33ECTC (one and two FT ports) and the LIP-1ECTC (TP/XF-1250). They provide all the standard features, including the built-in configuration server, enhanced communications test, backup/restore, remote LPA protocol analyzer, and support for DHCP and extended NAT. The new LCD display with jog-dial makes device setup easier. The two Ethernet ports can be operated in switch mode and allow a daisy-chain installation, which reduces cabling effort. Project documentation can be stored and accessed directly on the Web interface. A Wireshark packet capture can analyze the IP network and with the LWLAN-800 adapter the L-IPs can even operate on the WLAN! The built-in firewall and Web interface for installation using HTTPS make the L-IPs secure devices. By configuring separate IP networks on the two Ethernet ports, the building&rsquo;s CEA-852 network on the LAN can be entirely isolated from the configuration interface on the WAN. This makes security hardening a simple task. For perfect integration into building management software such as the LWEB-900 by LOYTEC, the new L-IPs offer an embedded OPC UA server with full-featured certificate authentication. This server exposes important operational parameters as OPC tags. For enhanced maintainability by IT departments, the L-IPs also provide the same data through an integrated SNMP server.</p> 2/17/2016 1:29:43 PM http://www.loytec.com LonMark International Magazine: Now Available for Download http://www.lonmark.org/news_events/Magazine/LonMark%20Magazine%20January%202016.pdf <p><strong style="font-size:10px;"><a href=http://www.naylornetwork.com/lmk-nwl/newsletter.asp?issueID=48037>February 2016</a> -- <em></em></strong><br />The LonMark Magazine is the official publication of LonMark International, aimed at a variety of readers, including specifiers and planners, architects, developers, systems and network integrators, researchers and end-users.

The LonMark International booth will highlight the only open and interoperable Smart Streetlight solution on the market. It will showcase outdoor light point controllers from eight different LonMark-certified vendors, all connected to the same powerline network, managed by a single Central Management Software platform from Streetlight.Vision. The following LonMark member companies will be co-exhibiting: Adic, Amko, Apanet, Citylone, Devtech M2M, Echelon, Flashnet, Streetlight.Vision and Vossloh Schwabe. This unique demonstration of interoperability will show how to reduce costs, while enhancing outdoor lighting services in a city by controlling each outdoor lighting asset with light point controllers, networked together on an open communication platform. Light point controllers tested and certified by LonMark International are interoperable, giving the ability to purchase light point controllers from multiple suppliers and mixing them in the field. Unlike other standards that try to unify proprietary systems in single Central Management Software, the open, standard-based approach from LonMark enables to mix devices from multiple suppliers on standardized field networks, the best solution for cities that cannot afford to continue purchasing proprietary control systems.

CEA is looking for participants for collaboration. Together work is in process to develop an interoperability lexicon establishing device descriptors, or as LonMark calls them "profiles" to help foster greater vendor interoperability. Building the lexicon is the first step toward the development of a standard for XML device descriptions. CEA is seeking input from LonMark&rsquo;s members to build upon the CEA 709.6 (LonMark Profiles, SNVTs, SCPTs, Enum Types, SPID) standard to create a lexicon for home automation interoperability. For those of you who have tried to create a smart home or develop an app with devices with multiple vendors, networks and protocols, you know how difficult it is. If all the devices come from a single vendor they probably work well together. If all the devices use the same protocol they may be interoperable as long as the manufacturer hasn&rsquo;t added a feature that was not already standardized by the protocol developers. Unfortunately, most consumers buy individual products or systems and only later try to tie them together to create a smart home. That&rsquo;s a challenge even for a professional installer and nearly impossible for the average consumer.
