Haystack London Videos

Here are the videos we made of all the talks given at the first Project Haystack Europe event held in London on 26th September at the British Library.

J2 Innovations sponsored the event which was great success, as there was a lot of good interaction with those who attended and a few volunteers to help with the standards definition effort that is ongoing as the scope of Project Haystack tagging extends to domains beyond building automation.

The talks explain why data modeling & tagging are essential for the future of smart buildings, and how Project Haystack has created an open-source standard for building services related data. The talks also cover the implications for the specification and design of BMS and other systems in smart buildings, how tagging can enable intelligent alarm management, the automation of control systems' configuration & commissioning, analytics, and the integration with BIM.
