Our History

Our History

At SmartBT, a leading provider Building Automation Systems, things are always changing. That’s how we stay ahead of your needs and are able to exceed your expectations. Throughout our history one thing stands out — we’re getting even smarter. Let us explain.

Originally launched under the name CommBT, we made the strategic decision to change our name to SmartBT in 2010 to better represent our growing suite of building automation services. Over the years CommBT clients have thanked us for measurable results ranging from cost savings and happier tenants to energy efficiency and longer lifespan of equipment. It became clear that our services provide clients with a better – a smarter – way to do business.

Though we have changed our name, SmartBT continues to lead the building automation industry with the most efficient solution on the market. Through OPEN Protocol technologies, SmartBT provides one custom source, a central communication tool that integrates all systems in a way that improves efficiency, lowers your costs, and reduces your risks.

The SmartBT team of experts is comprised of leading management professionals and programmers that have successfully installed controls and building automation systems for decades. SmartBT is a factory authorized representative of Distech Controls and American Auto-Matrix, and recently won 2 awards at the Distech Controls Partner Conference. SmartBT has historically concentrated on the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia market, though is continuing to expand its service reach, and recently opened offices in Tampa, Florida and Orlando, Florida.
