      Putting The Smart In Smart Buildings With Bluetooth Mesh

      Bluetooth mesh is a new Bluetooth technology which allows secure networks of thousands of devices to be formed and one of the primary applications that Bluetooth mesh was created for is the truly smart, connected building. It was designed from the outset with reliability, security and scalability as key goals and with the ability to meet the sophisticated and technically challenging engineering requirements of the smart building and smart industry.

      A Journey from “Simple” Home to “SMART” Home

      A showcase of the paradigm shift from simple (home) living standards towards an effective and efficient smarter home living. Technological evolutions have always brought newer opportunities and threats, but with recent technology add-on’s such as the Internet of Things (smart home, smart city), Artificial Intelligence, etc. they all have provided a completely new and richer playground, that promises and delivers long lasting ‘human and society’ benefits that no one ever could have imagine before. The present living motto has been more suited to entering an era that is ‘Be Smarter – Act Smarter – Live Smarter’. In the seminar, we unleash unique use-case and newly defined business models in the Smart home arena. We will visualise how the Smart home technology improves our day-to-day living experience and at the same time brings certain challenges that need quick and clean answers.
