Common Purpose: Secure Communication in Smart Buildings


BACnet Plugfest ensures smooth integration on construction sites



Dortmund, April 12th, 2018. – Owners and operators of distributed properties rely on networked systems. Most tenders require interoperability between devices from different manufacturers. To ensure this, 60 BACnet developers and technicians will meet from May 16-18 at the 12th European BACnet Plugfest in Luedenscheid, Germany


"Good interoperability is only possible when engineers from different manufacturers approach each other and solve problems together," says Peter Schönenberger, Head of Marketing and Product Management at Sauter AG, the host of the previous Plugfest. This year's host is lighting planner and training provider DIAL.


Three days developers from all over Europe and other parts of the world are optimizing the BACnet communication of their devices. The secure data transfer is practiced in pairing sessions, round tables and short presentations – so that the commissioning of the building technology runs smoothly on the construction sites.
