Connected Offices through VLC

 

Connected lighting is part of the Internet of Things (IoT) trend. By building on the digital nature of LED technology, connected lighting brings illumination and IT together. With the help of PoE technology not only power and data can be delivered for the luminaire over a standard Ethernet cable but it also allows the lighting system to be merged with the IT system. Moreover, Philips PoE (power over ethernet) enabled luminaires also incorporate Visible Light Communication (VLC) technology wherein the PoE luminaires continuously transmit their IP address at higher frequency which in turn can be detected by a smartphone app allowing app based controllability and personalization of lights. 

 

In addition to illuminating office spaces with high quality and energy efficient LED lighting, connected lighting with POE can inform owners of maintenance requests, occupancy trends, temperature control, and more creating offices that are more efficient, sustainable, and responsive.


In addition to illuminating the office with high quality and energy efficient LED lighting, Connected Lighting uses the omnipresent nature of lighting infrastructure to gather information about how a space is being used, and to provide information and services to the people using it.

How it works

 

• In a connected lighting system, every luminaire is directly connected to and uniquely identified within a building's IT network, allowing system managers to monitor, manage, and maintain individual light points via lighting management software. 

 

• With integrated sensors, connected luminaires become points of intelligence that share data on occupancy, activity patterns, and changes in temperature, humidity, and daylight levels.

 

• With wireless communications, connected luminaires can deliver location-based services and in-context information to people in illuminated spaces via mobile devices and apps.

4 ways connected lighting uses data to deliver value beyond illumination

connected graph

Connected software: Data for real-time monitoring and historical reporting

 

With real time occupancy data and trends over time, facility managers can schedule for and entire floor shutdown during off-peak times or reschedule any maintenance activities if there is a last minute change in space occupancy.
