Abstract: This paper summarizes the authors' work of deploying Internet of Things (IoT) to build a reliable, cost effective and versatile energy management system for small- and medium-sized commercial buildings. This paper addresses critical issues related to the choices and evaluation of embedded systems and software optimization to enable the deployment on a low-cost single board computer, and experience of integrating IoT devices to enable smart building operation. It then discusses three demonstration projects located in Virginia and summarizes deployment experience.
