  • Patent number: 10635057
    Abstract: A building automation system generates occupancy information for occupants of spaces of a building (e.g. quantity, identity and/or location of the occupants) based on occupancy sensors in the spaces. The occupancy sensors capture speech sounds originating from one or more occupants of the spaces and/or ultrasonic emissions originating from one or more user devices of the occupants are via microphone arrays. Audio data based on the captured sound is then generated. Position information for the sources of the sound is determined based on the audio data, and the audio data is enhanced based on the position information via a beamforming process. Occupancy information for the spaces is generated based on the audio data. Environmental conditions of the spaces are controlled based on the presence, absence, position, orientation, distribution and/or preferences of the occupants in the space.

  • Publication number: 20200064796
    Abstract: A distributed transaction ledger (e.g. a blockchain) is used to track and validate changes in a building management system such as a building automation system, access control system, or security/surveillance system. The building management system 100 includes a series of distributed devices connected to a peer-to-peer validation network. The distributed devices generate transaction information during normal operation and broadcast the transaction information to the validation network. The validation network maintains a distributed transaction ledger for the building management system, for example, by validating the transaction information and distributing the transaction information across the validation network according to consensus criteria to be stored locally in multiple instances by nodes of the validation network, which can be dedicated computing devices and/or validator distributed devices.

  • Publication number: 20200064790
    Abstract: An event automation system controls building management systems (e.g. building automation, access control, and/or security systems of a building) for scheduled events. An occupancy module generates occupancy information for event spaces where events are scheduled via occupancy sensors installed at the event spaces. A building automation module instructs distributed devices of the building management systems to control the environmental settings of the event spaces based on the occupancy information and stored space, attendee, and schedule information. The event automation system also facilitates scheduling the events at event spaces of the building based on configuration information from an event organizer (e.g. invited attendees, start and end times, and activities to be performed at the event), required automation features for the event, location information and exercise preferences for the invited attendees, and/or aggregated usage information for the event spaces.

  • Publication number: 20200064792
    Abstract: A distributed event engine for controlling distributed devices of a building management system executes as discrete event processes on distributed devices with sufficient computing power and availability. The distributed devices communicate via a peer-to-peer network and a distributed ledger (e.g. blockchain). An event engine configuration module assigns the event processes to the distributed devices based on device and capability information published to the distributed ledger. An edge device scoring process executing on the distributed devices executing the event processes determines which other distributed devices to control based on which devices are compatible with local event processes and/or electrically and geographically close, resulting in decreased latency, vulnerability to hacking and corruption of data.

  • Publication number: 20200066072
    Abstract: A distributed transaction ledger (e.g. blockchain) is used to control access through access points in an access control system. During normal operation, access control devices (e.g. system controllers and door controllers) generate and broadcast transaction information to a validation network. The validation network maintains a distributed transaction ledger for the access control system, for example, by validating and distributing the transaction information across the validation network according to predetermined consensus criteria. The devices perform access control functions based on transaction information retrieved from the transaction ledger. Door controllers receive identification information from user devices (e.g. identification badges, mobile computing devices) and send the identification information to the validation network. A predetermined number of responding nodes generate verification information based on authorization information in the transaction ledger.

  • Publication number: 20200068351
    Abstract: A student tracking system deploys distributed sensors throughout a school building. The distributed sensors receive identification information broadcast by user devices carried by occupants of the school such as students, teachers and school administrators. The student tracking system tracks the location of the occupants within the building based on which sensors most recently detected the user devices. The system sends the location information for the occupants to tracking devices operated by tracking users such as school administrators, emergency responders and/or parents. The tracking devices also present to the parents image data captured by surveillance cameras depicting the students. Additionally, the distributed sensors detect the presence of unauthorized individuals within the school building by determining whether an individual detected via a proximity or motion detector corresponds to identification information for a registered user device received by the sensors.

  • Publication number: 20190086881
    Abstract: A service management system facilitates service on building management systems. A connected services system of a connected services system stores temperature information from temperature detectors of building management systems (including heat detectors of fire alarm systems and thermostats of building automation systems), which send sensor values to control panels, which, in turn, send the temperature information to the connected services system. A temperature detector evaluation module of the connected services system retrieves the temperature information from the connected services database, generates aggregate temperature information based on the temperature information and then determines which of the temperature detectors require service based on the aggregate temperature information, for example, by detecting outlier temperature information.

  • Publication number: 20190089703
    Abstract: A service management system facilitates and validates service on building management systems installed in a building with an access control system. A service workflow module receives device events from control panels of the building management systems and combines them with local service data from mobile computing devices of technicians performing the service, generating service events. A validation module receives the service events and retrieves access control events from an access control system controller of the access control system and determines whether they are coherent. The service workflow module also infers the location of the technician based on the access control events and sends service eligible devices to be displayed on the mobile computing devices of the technicians. In an alternative embodiment, device events from a building automation system such as a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system are further used to validate the service events.
