    Why Smart Buildings?

     

    Companies must embrace the digital disruption to stay relevant, profitable and attract talent. 

    So what does this mean for the real estate world?

     

    Internet of Things (IoT) is the central tenet of smart buildings where devices collect and share data about themselves, their users, their environments, and the other devices with which they connect. This data provides insights allowing businesses to maximize energy savings, optimize space and improve employee wellbeing and productivity.

    Groundbreaking collaboration


    The Philips intelligent connected lighting system at The Edge is the world’s first fully-realized system of its kind. Watch the video or download the case study.

    What is the role of lighting in a smart building?

     

    The digital nature of LED technology brings illumination and IT together, allowing lighting systems to participate in the Internet of Things. Philips connected lighting systems uses Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology into the IoT – an ideal way to support efficiencies across a smart building according to the 3-30-300 Principle.

     

    The 3-30-300SM Principle developed by real estate company Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), compares the relative amounts of money that organizations typically spend on utilities, rent, and payroll. If a business spends $3 per square foot per year for utilities, it spends $30 for rent and $300 for payroll.

    How connected lighting works

    PoE_product_sensor
    Low voltage power is transmitted over existing Ethernet cables to operate the luminaires, while high volumes of data are sent and collected. Integrating a Philips connected lighting system using Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology into the IoT is an ideal way to meet sustainability goals and realize financing savings from space optimization and employee productivity.
