Connected lighting

Connected lighting offers several benefits and advantages:

  • Convenience People can control their lighting from anywhere, whether they’re at home, in the office, or in a hotel. This level of control allows for adjustments to reduce energy consumption, create specific atmospheres, or simply provide the desired amount of light.
  • Dimming without traditional cables Traditional dimming systems require a physical connection between the dimmer and the luminaire via a power cable. With connected lighting, this cable becomes redundant, allowing for more flexibility and innovation in control methods.
  • Wireless technology Wireless control eliminates the need for complex and costly installation procedures associated with traditional wired systems. This saves time, money, and effort during installation while also enabling freedom in positioning lighting fixtures.
  • Market trends The widespread adoption of wireless connected devices such as smartphones and tablets has changed how people control various devices, including lighting. This trend has led to the installation of wireless networks in residential and commercial buildings, paving the way for new functionalities and energy-saving opportunities.
  • LED technology The emergence of LED technology offers new possibilities for lighting functionality, which can be efficiently controlled using innovative methods enabled by connected lighting systems.
  • Versatility Wireless lighting controls allow users to perform various actions such as switching, dimming, changing colors, creating group settings, and more, providing a richer customer experience in a simple manner.
  • Interoperability Products in the lighting industry are increasingly becoming interoperable, meaning they can work together seamlessly. Standards like ZigBee Light Link, now integrated into the ZigBee 3.0 standard, facilitate this interoperability.
  • Market growth The connected lighting market is expected to grow rapidly due to advancements in single-chip wireless technology, which is becoming more mature and cost-effective, with prices approaching sub-$1 levels.
