From security to occupancy sensing to data-driven monitoring, LED lighting technologies make buildings and workplaces better, more efficient—smarter.
Utilizing a network of fixture-integrated sensors with top-level software, LED lighting systems collect, then analyze an all-inclusive list of metrics about their indoor and outdoor environments, revealing previously unseen operational cost savings, security insights and ROI.
The promise of a better-managed infrastructure through big data, the Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) gives facility managers and operators unprecedented control of their infrastructure, optimizing much-needed changes in real-time.
The way businesses across all industries operate is changing fast—and getting brighter.
Lighting fixtures with mounted sensors monitor how many occupants journey through a certain area or intersection, collecting data simultaneously. Decisionmakers can use this information to plan future infrastructure investments and improvements—then use it to evaluate the before-and-after impacts of the project.
Cameras are another common smart building application. Some facilities install cameras for security purposes. Others use cameras for optimization purposes.
The demand for connectivity continues to grow to record-high levels as mobile phone usage and the popularity of other wireless devices increases. Light fixtures, including lampposts, are a popular way to mount platforms for wireless spots.
Air quality monitoring
Atmospheric changes and airborne pollutants can be effectively tracked via a network of sensors on lighting fixtures, which helps predict air quality incidents and better protects occupants and visitors.
