Light beyond illumination


Last time, we showed you what connected lighting technology can do. This time, we showed you what life is like when light goes beyond illumination. At this year’s show, we demonstrated how connected lighting saves, automates, informs, and inspires. Office lighting that makes people more productive and spaces more flexible. Playful home lighting that you can personalize and control remotely. Street lighting that makes cities safer and more efficient. These are just some of the ways that we are transforming life, with light beyond illumination.

2016 Light + Building highlights

If you weren't able to make it to the show -- don't worry. We've rounded up the best highlights from this year's booth experience.

Whether in offices, shops, cities, or at home, our connected lighting systems add a layer of intelligence that transforms public and private spaces. Illumination becomes part of the Internet of Things, helping to make our increasingly connected environments more responsive to the preferences and needs of people and the planet. If you were unable to visit our booth, this is your chance to view video highlights of the booth, speakers, and much more.
