Project Haystack Goes to Europe

Written by

As the IoT becomes more prevalent, data management is becoming more and more central to those responsible for the efficient and productive operation of building portfolios. There is so much data available from today's building systems and related applications, that the organization of such data is of critical importance. Project Haystack is the most widely used open standard that seeks to address this issue.

Project Haystack is excited to announce that the Connections Magazine Fall 2019 issue is now in development and is scheduled to be published in October 2019. Haystack Connections reports the news from the Project Haystack community around the world and provides updates on the development of working groups, new tagging models, reference implementations, complimentary applications, and use case stories from the community working together to make device data easier to use across applications of all types.

Haystack Connect 2019 a Resounding Success

Written by

The 4th biennial Haystack Connect conference, was another great success demonstrating the continued growth of the community and widespread adoption of the Haystack standard by manufacturers, developers and systems integrators large and small. Attended by Project Haystack community members and representatives from the smart building and IoT industry, 24 sponsors and exhibitors from around the world, the community forged ahead once again, addressing the evolving challenges of making data easier to use and interoperable across the built and IoT environments.

The event featured over 50 speakers from systems integrators, technology providers, OEMs, and building owners and operators to presentations focused on the technical side of Project Haystack and the Working Groups, and the public review of the new Haystack 4!

Haystack 4 Is Coming – What it Is and Why it Matters

Written by

Haystack 4 - A Brief Introduction

The understanding of the need for semantic modeling of device and equipment data has matured significantly in the last decade and the requirements and techniques for applying semantic modeling to equipment data are advancing rapidly. As we have learned, semantic modeling is critical for humans to work with and understand the ever-increasing amount of data coming from their systems, but the process of manually applying that semantic model is not scalable. We need our tools to simplify and automate how the semantic model is applied.

Haystack 4 builds on the 8 years of experience in applying Haystack across thousands of buildings worldwide, the input from practitioners in the community throughout that time, as well the collaborators that have participated in the activities of Haystack Working Group 551 over the past year. The way you configure tags today using Haystack will not change, but as you will see, the way the tags get modeled within Haystack systems will enable the tools you use to become smarter so you spend less time manually configuring tags and more time getting value out of the raw data coming from your IoT devices.

Extensive documentation will be available on this work and it will be a key focus of the Haystack Connect 2019 event, with a full day track dedicated to a detailed review of Haystack 4. Our goal with this document is to offer a high-level preview of the major advances that Haystack 4 brings to the challenge of semantic modelling of the devices and equipment systems that permeate the built environment.

And we are excited to reveal the full Haystack Connect 2019 Technical Program, presenters and topics. Haystack Connect is known for the quality of its technical program and this year will raise the bar even further. Quite simply, this is the place where the industry leaders on the use of device and equipment data gather to network and share in an open and collegial environment. Here are some highlights of the Technical Program:
