A Little BACnet History



Hear About the History of BACnet From Those Who Were There



Mike Newman and Steve Bushby hosted a wonderful session on "A BACnet Retrospective from People Who Were There" at the BACnet International Testing Symposium in September 2018.


If you'd like to hear the history of BACnet in their own words you can access the video here. 


A Tribute to Mike Newman


Mike Newman, widely recognized as the founding father of the BACnet protocol (ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 135), passed away on March 4, 2020 at his home in Ithaca, NY.


Mike's vision and tenacious effort to standardize a data communication protocol for building automation will never be forgotten. His legacy will live on through the BACnet community and through the world-wide application of the BACnet standard.


You can also see a short tribute  to Mike from the other BACnet committee chairs, past and present. 


Mike's absence will be keenly felt in the BACnet community.
