Future Trend Talks is a seminar series organised during the upcoming trade show, Integrate, on Wednesday 27 August 2014


1. ‘KNX and the Smart City’

Joost Demarest, Chief Technical Officer of the Belgium-based KNX Association, will share his experience, technical expertise and vision for the future of smart buildings at the Future Trend Talks.

Future Trend Talks is a seminar series organised during the upcoming trade show, Integrate, on Wednesday 27 August 2014.

As KNX are the creators of Europe’s most recognised standard of intelligent building protocol, this keynote session will reveal how the Australian building industry can achieve a ‘Smart City’; a KNX City model where building automation (the simultaneous control of lighting, heating/cooling, security and household appliances etc.), industrial control systems and city infrastructure systems all work together as one.

In his keynote KNX and the Smart City, Demarest will explain the reasons why KNX, in-line with the International Energy Performance Regulations, has launched the KNX City concept which establishes the basis to achieve future Smart Cities based on its technology.

What: KNX and the Smart City
When: 27 August 2014 from 10.30am to 11.30am

2. Smart Building Facades – A New View by Anders Hall

(Anders Hall is the International Affairs Manager of Somfy)

For many years the façade of a building has been seen as an element designed to block the outside world from entering the internal environment. Designers are now beginning to understand that the façade can be used intelligently to facilitate the controlled movement of energy, greatly reducing the operating costs of the building and improving occupant comfort.

Using a recent study and global best practice projects, this seminar will demonstrate how the façade and automated dynamic solar shading can be incorporated into fully converged smart buildings of any size.

World Class Technologies in Australian Smart Buildings – a panel discussion with Anders Hall (International Affairs Manager from Somfy), Peter Garrett (Managing Director of mySmartCTI) and Joost Demarest (Chief Technical Officer at KNX).

This panel discussion will examine the challenges of delivering the perfect smart building and give delegates practical insights into ways buildings can be designed to seamlessly integrate global smart technologies into Australian buildings.
