1. Introduction

Smart building technologies are rapidly emerging, bringing unprecedented changes to building management, efficiency and comfort. In enabling this change, BACnet/IP distributed IO modules play a key role. This article will introduce the basic concepts of BLIIoT BACnet/IP Distributed Ethernet IO Module BL207 and their key applications in smart buildings.

2. BACnet/IP distributed IO module

What is BACnet/IP?

BACnet (Building Automation and Control Networks) is a communication protocol standard for smart building automation. It allows devices of different brands and types to communicate with each other, enabling device interoperability. BACnet/IP is the implementation of the BACnet protocol on the IP network, allowing devices to communicate through standard Ethernet, making it more flexible and convenient.
