This IDC Market Glance provides a glance at the current makeup of the smart building market, illustrating the vendor landscape and depicting the market segments. A smart building's historical foundation has been based on the automatic centralized control of a building's HVAC, lighting, access control, security systems, and other interrelated systems through a building management system or building automation system.
Smart building technology has evolved, and in addition to providing energy savings a smart building can deliver several useful building services that make occupants productive (e.g., illumination, thermal comfort, air quality, physical security, sanitation) at the lowest cost and environmental impact over the building's life cycle. Smart buildings use information technology during operation to connect a variety of subsystems that typically operate independently, allowing these systems can share information to optimize total building performance. The proliferation of IoT has created a new generation of smart buildings that allows technologies and systems to be interconnected, responsive, and interactive with building operators and occupants to empower facility managers with new levels of visibility and actionable information.
