A couple weeks ago, Enerliance got to attend the first annual Haystack Connect conference. We went because we support the goals of Project Haystack – and because we saw it as an opportunity to connect with other companies who are moving the building controls and intelligence industry forward.
The conference was great on a number of levels, but the most exciting part for us was getting to spend time with the community of innovators. The people who are helping to build the intelligent buildings of tomorrow.
System integrators we met at the conference, with companies like Engenuity and Long Building Intelligence, are doing a great job of staying on top of a rapidly evolving industry and integrating software like LOBOS into the complex systems that run large buildings.
We also met a couple controls at distributors who are going above and beyond. Eric Stromquist, the CEO and Co Owner of Stromquist & Co. and Ken Smyers, a Sales Engineer at Smyers Co., provided excellent coverage of Haystack on their blog, ControlTrends.org. In fact, their ControlTrends is quickly becoming one of the industry’s best sources of news and information.
We’d also like to take a minute to thank the conference’s organizers. Marc Petock from Lynxspring and John Petze from SkyFoundry are both longtime friends of Enerliance, and thought leaders in the industry. Thanks to both of you for being the driving force behind Haystack Connect 2013. We’re excited to see where the industry goes between now and Haystack Connect 2014.
