How Intelligent Lighting Is Ushering In The Internet Of Buildings

21.12.2015 | TechCrunch | www.techcrunch.com

The LED revolution is over. To no one’s surprise, LEDs have won. Solid-state lighting is changing how we light the world, successfully displacing traditional illumination sources across every part of the global lighting market. Over the next few years, billions of sockets will be in play.

It all starts with the LEDs themselves. As low-voltage semiconductor devices, they have always had a natural affinity for digital control. Unlike the inherently analog and high-voltage light sources of the past, LEDs and micro controllers play well together.

The bundle of components required to make a light fixture capable of sensing its environment, acting on that information and sharing it with others has dropped in price - even more precipitously than have the LED devices themselves.

Finally, the ubiquity of lighting across our private and public spaces makes it the perfect vehicle to bring intelligence into the built environment. In every building and public space, lights occupy prime real estate, with both a perfect vantage point from which to observe people and objects beneath them and a reliable source of power.

These three factors - a secular shift from analog to digital, an explosion of low-cost supporting technologies and a ubiquitous install base that facilitates rapid deployment - have combined to launch the era of intelligent lifting.
