Smart Buildings 101 with Chris Beaty

GoTo Meeting, Link provided upon registration and payment

Tuesday, September 8th; presentation starts at 12:00 p.m.

What makes a smart building smart? Over the past decade, our industry has created a new language of how we talk about buildings. Terms like: low voltage systems, integration, internet of things, connected, big data, algorithms, and a host of others get thrown around all the time, but the definitions of these concepts is up to interpretation based on who you are talking to at the time. This presentation will give an overview of the state of the industry when it comes to “smart buildings,” what some of the goals of being “smart” are, different approaches to solving those goals, and respective challenges. Hopefully by the end of the presentation, we’ll all kind of know what each other is talking about when we say we want a “smart building.”


Chris Beaty is an Account Executive for the Connected Technologies division of Johnson Controls, focused on low voltage systems integration. In his role he leads pursuit teams and client interactions for large multi-million dollar projects that have diverse technology needs and desired outcomes. He holds Bachelor’s of Science and Master’s of Architectural Engineering degrees from the University of Nebraska and is currently enrolled in the Master of Business Administration program at Creighton University. He has been involved in numerous healthcare projects that involve integrations and planning for over 30 low voltage systems and has served on a product development team for a BAS and HL7 integration platform for OR room optimization. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in the State of Nebraska and has been published in the Journal of Architectural Engineering.
