EasyIO’s World Event Presentation Highlights: (ControlTrends gives special thanks to Anja Nilsen, from Bergen, Norway, for helping out with the photography and videography!)

realmadridGuido van Erp: Welcome and review of Agenda. Anyone who has coordinated a world-wide meeting on this scope can appreciate the prodigious preparations and successful delivery of dinners and golfing. The VIP executive business center inside of Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, Real Madrid’s Soccer Stadium, was enough, but the tour of the locker room, walking the pitch, and sitting on the players’ bench, and the lighter than air portrayal of Real Madrid’s prolific history was absolutely amazing. The crescendo Flamingo guitarist banquet was truly a befitting finale!

Easy IO’s Mike Marston: The most advanced open controller to date, the FG-32+ Mega Beast product launch is around the 4th quarter’s bend, and EasyIO’s new VAV initiatives with Belimo are prefaced with “shock and awe” warnings, because the next version of the FG-32+ with its Belimo driver will be able to discover all the Belimo DCA’s on your MP Bus network. You heard that right.

Easy IO’s Lim Hoon Chiat: Speaking as one of the industry’s most accomplished masters of technology (patents), EasyIO’s product road map opens the Linux side up for ambitious integrators, and there will be more memory, 3X faster processor speeds, and more drivers will be added to the existing tool sets. (C’mon… give everybody else a chance to catch up.)

Johan Schakenraad : CEO at EasyIO, Europe B.V: The Residential is the World’s first real BMS in a Box and Easy IO’s fast-track success in Europe — 103 partners in three years, has not been left to chance. Johan Schakenraad’s vast industry experience has traversed and converted many of the well-worn BMS integration paths with EasyIO and with his enormously talented team, Johan is looking anxiously across the waters.

Pedro Jorge, CTO at EasyIO Europe: EnOcean technology adds another fully developed technology to the EasyIO product offering. EnOcean opens up not only the Residential market, but the hospitality suite market as well. The days of intrusive installations are almost over — and the reductions to both the installation and operational costs are two of the most critical price drivers in an increasingly competitive market.

Barry Light, Fire and Ice, LLC: Special presentation on the EasyIO’s “Barry-App” for AON. The EasyIO FG-32 controller gave Barry, one of the leading experts on AON integration, HTML5, unceasing support through the critical path development phase, the additional memory and speed features he wanted, while eliminating the license issue and delayed support.

Sponsor Presentations:

telefonicaEmilio Martínez de la Fuente, Head of Smart Metering at Telefónica, the number one Spanish multinational corporation. Overview of Telefónica’s own green initiatives, and the massive project undertakings in Germany, Brazil, and especially the UK, where Telefónica was awarded the project that will smart meter 2/3’s of the homes in the UK.

BelimoBelimo’s Chris Jones and Tom Daenzer: First order of business was the opening of Belimo’s new 200,000 square feet production facility in Danbury, CT, facility, and the significance of the MP Bus story, that presents the realization — that every one of your Belimo DCA’s and Energy valves (which ALREADY have MP Bus embedded communications in them), means that when the integration moment is right, you’ll be able to add them to your network, using EasyIO’s FG-32+. As Belimo continues its partnerships, especially with EasyIO, it will continue to change the world of VAV’s and the best way to integrate buildings — conceptually, and one day, may include residential market.
