Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) recently formed the Smart Commercial Building project. The project is dedicated to connecting building automation devices on managed networks and intends to leverage and extend the existing protocols in building IoT.
One of the first project initiatives defines how the OCF core framework can be used to transport BACnet models. A new OCF white paper, “BACnet Gateway & OCF,” explains how OCF devices, especially sensors, can be used in a deployed BACnet system. This can be achieved by adding an OCF client to a BACnet gateway. Those interested in learning details about the integration of OCF with a BACnet gateway can read the free white paper today, which contains translation rules from OCF resources to BACnet objects.
