Exploring Smart Lighting

Smart lighting: enabling the IoT

 

In a new report 'Market Guide for Smart Lighting', leading industry analyst Gartner finds that smart lighting can serve as an enabling infrastructure for Internet of Things capabilities that go far beyond lighting and energy savings. When creating a digital platform for smart buildings, connected LED lighting is key.

Because the smart lighting industry is rapidly evolving, IT leaders must select a smart lighting approach that can grow with them as they expand their digital ecosystems. Success depends on the collaboration of many stakeholders, including property owners, corporate real estate professionals, employees and policymakers. In Gartner’s analysis, only a few vertically integrated lighting companies can deliver a complete, fully integrated smart lighting solution today. These companies offer strategies that promise to lead the industry in connected systems and ensure future growth. Gartner forecast that smart lighting will be designed into 70% of commercial buildings by 2020.
