Design & Innovation and cutting-edge work is happening on new products and new technologies. Our newly launched Internet of Lighting (IoL)® solutions for Smart & Connected indoor & outdoor lighting is our first step towards offering customers the best lighting solutions.
IoL® will deliver the following benefits for Smart Buildings: Power on Ethernet (PoE) leading to savings up to 65%; proactive maintenance, space optimization, ease of deployment because of single network cable, enhanced safety as no power wiring is used, and enhanced employee productivity and well-being by better control of light colour and intensity. LiFi will enable ease of data transfer through light waves, resulting in speeds up to 10 times higher than wifi speeds and higher security of data transfer, avoiding data breach.
With the emergence of IoT and Big Data, Smart and Connected digital lighting-based solutions are the way forward as they will bring in intelligence and functionality into lighting systems, enhance user experience, and deliver the desired outcomes for customers
