Combining all smart building appliances to create one seamless smart building. Whether it be for smart homes or larger scale solutions a lot of applications controlling lights, presence detectors, temperature sensors, heating, smart locks, etc. need to be integrated. Is the “one-app” approach the best solution? We look at the options of delivering API’s from one vendor to the other creating a lot of transparency. This might feel scary since competitors can also see and use this.
If on the other hand, you deliver a solution that “gets better with” instead of “works with/friends with”, you are ahead of your competitors. Your product cannot be missed any more in the integrated solution delivering the best possible experience in smart building solutions.
