Internet of Things innovators shed insight on managing and enhancing energy, security and functionality of home and office at Las Vegas event

Norwalk, CT – April 27, 2016—TMC and Crossfire Media today announced new speakers have been added to the  IoT Evolution Connected Home & Building Conference being held July 11-14, 2016 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference covers all the ways the IoT will create the smart home and building of the future for both consumer and business applications. Facilities management sessions focus on ways that building owners and operators will use the IoT to automate office buildings and residential dwellings. Consumer sessions focus on security, smart devices, food management and more.

“We spend more time in buildings and homes than anywhere else, so it’s no wonder that so many IoT applications are developed to support our needs while at work, rest and when we need to manage the home remotely,” said Carl Ford, CEO, Crossfire Media, executive director of content for IoT Evolution Connected Home & Building Conference.  “If you own a home, manage a facility or have an impact on the community you will benefit from hearing and networking with the industry at Connected Home & Building.”
