Beyond Buildings and “Rurality”

i. The background for my new newsletter/podcast series that should come out in June if all goes well — Beyond Buildings.
  • There is a lot to be said about the Covid-response and differences to Sweden and the US, but I don’t want to get into politics. Personally, I dislike the stance Sweden took/did not take, sacrificing the lives of the people who built this country, but some other aspects have been… Okay.
  • Buildings will become more proactive, predictive, and possibly also prescriptive once the data-impact loop has settled in where people understand what the data is telling them, and are able to take action on it.
  • When talking about touch-less interfaces, that can also mean voice, which is rather simple to do. I’ve been talking to some specialist companies in the field, Talkamatic, which states, “Dialogue first, user firstest.” Could/should be an alternative to other mechanical approaches.
  • I also recently got in touch with some people responsible for FM in hospitals as well as tech vendors providing digital twin connectivity through and through not only making the building smarter, but also predicting, preventing, and reducing the number of lives lost, through a holistic view of what’s going on. Post-COVID compliancy will be at the forefront in most areas, I assume, but not really Sweden. Here, no one really cares.
  • What is digital maturity now — what is the “now situation in general” of a building?
  • People are trying to throw tech at problems they don’t know enough about.
  • What is it that they want to achieve?
  • How far should we take it?
  • What are the first steps?
  • How to avoid vendor lock-in?
  • How do we integrate the thermal, the IoT, the HVAC/BMS, classic IT/OT/IoT conversion with sensors, etc.?
  • What does it mean for us as a company in our field _____?
  • If wireless, what to choose?
