One of the biggest lighting shows in the world is only two weeks away: Lightfair International 2016. The show is intended for attendees of all types: Architects, landscape designers, contractors, engineers, energy consultants, facility managers, public utility specialists, urban planners – you name it! Averaging 500 exhibitions, the conference showcases all aspects of lighting. Decorative and contemporary lighting will be a major draw, but control and operation will also have a major presence: Building integration, control devices, meters, and solar products, to name a few.
How does this relate to Internet of Things (IoT)? IoT has applications in every vertical, and lighting is certainly no exception; whether for the consumer or commercially. Two pillars of IoT are monitoring, remote control, both of which can make big difference for aesthetics and efficiency.
IoT and Lighting
We’re proud to announce our work on a connected lighting demo in conjunction with Avnet at this year’s Lightfair International. Together, we’ve built a demo that utilizes Avnet electrical components, Amazon Web Services (AWS/IoT plus other services), ThingLogix Foundry (our Device Management software), and the Amazon Echo. We’re confident that the Avnet/ThingLogix LFI demo will turn some heads in the lighting industry and we’re excited for the conversations to begin. If you’re in the San Diego area April 26-28, feel free to come see the IoT demo, which can be found at the Avnet booth, #2653.
It’s exciting to see creative IoT use cases emerge across so many industries. Fleet management and smart water-metering have been two classic examples of IoT in real life, but this month, attendees of LFI will witness a leading edge example with our Avnet partnership and the connected lighting demonstration.
If you would like to schedule a meeting to discuss connected lighting, any other use case, or implementing IoT solutions, please contact us! We would be happy to set it up.
