Lack of cooperation among standard-setting bodies is a source of restraint for the IoT in Building and Automation.

For IoT and existing smart building technologies to operate together, there needs to be a lot of collaboration between standard organizations, enterprises, city governments, and other stakeholders. This cooperation in the development of smart cities is critical to understanding the full potential of these technologies. Property and tenant management, as well as facility management, each has its own set of needs and operating systems. Because these systems are not often built to integrate with other systems, obtaining information from building systems can be problematic.

As a result of IoT-enabled devices, there has been an increase in privacy and security concerns which is restraining the market growth

Smart technology is currently being integrated into the designs and operations of many buildings. Tenants and landlords benefit greatly from the deployment of technology such as IoT and sensors. However, building security is jeopardized by the introduction of these technologies. Most IoT devices and sensors have insecure security, use non-standard communication protocols, and run on old, unpatched software, exposing smart buildings to a variety of security flaws. Hackers always look for technological flaws to access a network and steal important data or take control of a facility. Cybercriminals, for example, hack into Business Activity Statement to disable passenger elevators, obtain access to security feeds from closed-circuit televisions (CCTVs), and cause power outages. Any smart building could be vulnerable to a well-planned cyber-attack involving widely available IoT devices and sensors, which could expose critical data storage, servers, and employee and customer information, all of which could be exploited for evil reasons. As a result, the growing privacy and security issues associated with the deployment of IoT-enabled devices are limiting the growth of the IoT in Building and Automation market.
