Abstract

Presents the background to open protocols, which the IT industry sees as the solution to integrating the different control systems in buildings or campuses. Discusses various initiatives in progress, and concludes that the expenditure on overlaying standards on existing obsolete devices and systems is likely to be wasted if radical solutions are developed that separate the solution from the interests of suppliers.
