View Smart Glass and the Smart Building Cloud transform buildings into responsive environments that continuously adjust to meet human needs for natural light, connection to nature, fresh air, and comfortable temperatures while improving energy efficiency and increasing profits for building owners and their tenants. Today, View’s products deployed across offices, apartments, life science facilities, schools, hospitals, airports, and hotels.

By automating the discovery, extraction, and normalization of data from building systems, sensors, devices, and vendor APIs, Mapped simplifies the integration process down to a single, standardized API. Mapped breaks enterprise data silos to empower building owners, operators, and service providers to unlock the value of their data and drive transformative business outcomes.
