Next week, the J2 Innovations team, joined by John Petze from Sky Foundry, is headed to Frankfurt, Germany. As founding members, they will be representing Project Haystack alongside BACnet at the ISH 2019 show. Project Haystack is the open source initiative to streamline working with data from the Internet of Things.
Project Haystack standardizes semantic data models and web services with the goal of making it easier to unlock value from the vast quantity of data being generated by devices and systems that permeate our homes, buildings, factories, and cities. Applications include automation, control, energy, HVAC, lighting, and other environmental systems.
Like BACnet, Project Haystack fosters openness and interoperability in building automation related domains. The Haystack community is a very active community, comprised of a wide range of global and regional champions - from the building automation and IoT world.
J2 Innovations leverages Project Haystack tagging and data modeling extensively throughout all of our applications suite - from building automatically generated user experiences to dynamically linked control logic. FIN framework software comes with Haystack built right in, making it easier for partners and OEMs to create future products.
ISH is the world’s leading trade fair, focusing on the responsible management of water and energy in buildings. Over 2,500 exhibitors, including all market leaders from home and abroad, launch their latest products, technologies and solutions into the world market. It all takes place at Congress Center Messe Frankfurt March 11th-15th. Congress Center is the largest and most flexible congress venue, conveniently located in the heart of Frankfurt, Germany.
