Until recently, even the tallest office towers and hotel complexes basically just consisted of an assortment of building blocks. But today architects need to manage complexity as demand for intelligent buildings that require new integrated planning methods and smart computer solutions instead of old-fashioned drawing boards grows. Many of them are already taking IoT to a more macro scale with the “Building Internet of Things”.
Sensors typically transform physical values into electric signals.

In the process, they will transform and revolutionize entire industries and business models – and that’s just for starters!
