The Building Device Naming Standards Community Group has been launched:


Being able to efficiently collect, analyse and leverage data insights
from buildings is a catalyst for optimising building performance,
improving the use of resources and moving towards predictive maintenance
and buildings that can respond  to the climate emergency.

The lack of standardised naming and labelling for connected devices in
the built environment means we are failing to leverage the value of data
to allow interoperability, improve building efficiency and increase
occupant productivity. 

A naming and labelling standard (complementing other industry
initiatives) will simplify and drive consistency thus increasing value
by unlocking the application of technologies such as machine learning. 
The work of this community group will align with and complement other
initiatives in the industry such as BRICK, Haystack, Omniclass,
Uniclass, IFC etc. 

In scope for this work are:
 A simple specification for naming syntax 
 A register of building device names and labels
