A large Asian company is preparing a building automation system based around standard IP technology. The system essentially consists of wireless sensor nodes that will do things like monitor temperature, motion, occupancy etc. Facilities managers can hook them into networks to automatically change thermostat settings or, later down the road, control lights in an effort to curb energy consumption in business.

Building automation for churches

Manufacturers of fire, security and communication equipment are probably involved.

Planning for Batimat 09

Looking for partners in the field of the building automation.

Focusing on Batimat 09 in Paris this year. Here are some Echelon building automation stories.

Unboxed - Crowdsourcing Works, When It’s Focused - "FEW concepts in business have been as popular and appealing in recent years as the emerging discipline of “open innovation.” It is variously described as crowdsourcing, the wisdom of crowds, collective intelligence and peer production — and these terms apply to a range of practices.

The overarching notion is that the Internet opens the door to a new world of democratic idea generation and collaborative production. Early triumphs like the Linux operating system and the Wikipedia Web encyclopedia are seen as harbingers.

In the new model, innovation is often portrayed as a numbers game. The more heads, the better — all weighing in, commenting, offering ideas. Collective knowledge prevails, as if a force of egalitarian inevitability.

But a look at recent cases and new research suggests that open-innovation models succeed only when carefully designed for a particular task and when the incentives are tailored to attract the …
