Bringing IoT to historic Montreal

March 15, 2016 | By Doug Picklyk

The Notman House, a communal space in Montreal, QC that is dedicated to supporting the city’s startup business community, together with the City of Montreal and Distech Controls, has announced the launch of a series project entitled #HACKtheHOUSE. The project aims to leverage the strength of the local innovation community to transform Notman’s heritage, downtown Montreal location into an Internet of Things (IOT) building. Participants in this sustainable building innovation include Google for Entrepreneurs, reelyActive, MySeat, EcoHack, mnubo, Lab Zed, Ubios, DASHBOX, TUBA, Periodic, and more.

“This project started when the Notman House team was looking for a way to create a more personalized experience for our residents and visitors, while also highlighting the incredible talent emerging in the Montreal ecosystem,” said Noah Redler, director of the Notman House campus.

The #HACKtheHOUSE series will consist of four weekend events that aim to transform Notman House into a showcase for technological solutions. The first event took place the weekend of March 11 to 13, and the second event is scheduled for the weekend of June 11 to 13. The third and fourth events will take place in September and November, however the dates have not yet been announced. A final presentation in December will showcase all that the #HACKtheHOUSE series has accomplished throughout the year.
