Connected Lighting

The IoT is the next industrial revolution and is expanding at a rapid pace. But quantity brings complexity. As a specialist for innovative lighting components and systems, Tridonic is convinced that connected, smart lighting will play a decisive role in the Internet of Things. Due to the dense granularity of luminaires and sensors, lighting can form the wireless or wired backbone within a building, connect all smart devices easily, and even be part of the IT infrastructure itself. For instance, it can support easier commissioning and installation, use of wireless controls and is fully scalable.
