CANDI and Intel join efforts for Smart Building Management

The Intel Building Management Platform (BMP) has been launched with CANDI PowerTools software at its heart. Intel BMP makes it far simpler and more cost-effective to take advantage of new smart building technologies. The need for easy connectivity across all of these protocols is why Intel chose CANDI PowerTools software. CANDI PowerTools is being built into low-cost, quick-to-install Intel IoT commercial gateways. These CANDI-enabled gateways are the backbone of Intel’s BMP. For the first time, they allow high-value data from building systems to be accessed with minimal cost and effort. CANDI’s device and data management software bridges popular new IoT protocols and APIs—as well as legacy protocols and standards—including BACnet, Modbus, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, ZigBee, INSTEON and others.
