Last week, on the rainy day of October 27, 2016, the BACnet Users Group met in Andover, MA at Schneider Electric's office. One of the speakers drove for four hours in rain and even snow to attend the meeting - that's what we call dedication! There were people from all over New England - from Plymouth, Boston, New Hampshire, North Shore, West Massachusetts...
What is the BACnet Users Group? The purpose of the BACnet Users Group is to bring together the local BACnet user community on a quarterly basis to share tips and techniques, pains and joys, regarding the use of BACnet products and technologies. The users' group features BACnet experts from Cimetrics, Siemens, Schneider Electric and many others.
This meeting was especially useful for the end users who have BACnet systems, such as facility managers and building managers. Members of the Group possess much practical knowledge about BACnet which can be of use in managing these systems.
This was the biggest meeting so far - we are growing!! We had great presentations from the president of BACnet International, Andy McMillan, with a live demo of "The BACnet Institute and its associated educational content and its forums",
and from Larry Stangel - Automation Specialist at Siemens Building Technologies about "BACnet integration challenges with real life examples from the job sites".
Thank you BACnet International for the great food and beverages!!
We plan the next meeting in March/April in some new and exciting location. Stay tuned - subscribe to our newsletter or to the User Group forum to be sure you are notified!
