Project Haystack Connections Magazine: Fall 2020

haystackConnect_fall

The latest edition of Project Haystack's Connections Magazine is out! This is a must-read for anyone in the smart building, smart equipment and IoT industry. This eighth issue demonstrates how the Haystack Community has continued to further solidify the value brought by its widely adopted open-source methodology for semantic tagging in the built environment.


The Connections Magazine Fall 2020 issue consists of articles, conversations and updates from Project Haystack members and supporting companies. Here are a few highlights from us!

As there is a significant diversity of device types that need to be handled by such a micro-BAS solution, Project Haystack tagging used to define a template for each connected device, is essential to enable devices to self-describe themselves to configuration wizards which then enable rapid integration of multiple subsystems into a complete solution.

After an initial webcast with the working group, a specification and proposal document has been published online. Many contributors have already started using Hayson in their own products already!

The design goals of Hayson are...

A simple protocol that doesn’t require extra parsing/work to work with data.
