   Large commercial facilities often employ a BMS (Building Management System) to centrally manage systems such as lighting, HVAC, elevators and even security. Although manufacturing facilities are generally large buildings with similar systems, less than 30% of them utilize a BMS to centrally manage them. The lack of adoption in this space is primarily driven by the average age of the buildings, tight operating margins and the unique coupling of the manufacturing facility to the manufacturing process. We will discuss these challenges and how a wireless BMS particularly defined for the manufacturing facility can overcome them.

  Daniel Barnes is the Director of Product Management for Synapse’s Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) vertical.  Under his leadership, Synapse develops cutting edge IoT solutions that enable today’s manufacturing facilities to leverage innovative enhancements which increase operational efficiencies, resulting in reduction of energy consumption and waste.  These futuristic IIoT applications provide sustainability, compliance, and data insights to an industry that is facing a trifecta of challenges, such as overseas competition, a shrinking labor pool, and rising material costs.  Daniel’s management of Synapse’s IIoT vertical is revolutionizing how today’s factories and commercial facilities view smart lighting controls beyond a binary application by delving deeper into Energy Management Systems.   

His speaking experience includes presenting IIoT topics at events such as World Energy Engineering Congress, the Wireless Telecommunications Symposium, and International Association of Lighting Management Companies Seminar.

Daniel has served in a host of senior leadership roles, leading and managing several cross-functional projects which affected hardware and software development, process improvement initiatives, and much more.  His educational background includes a BoEE from Auburn University and a MS in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology.
