Interconnected lighting is bigger than you think

The Bluetooth device network enables automated centralized control of the building's basic systems, including HVAC (HVAC), security and lighting, saving energy, reducing operating costs and increasing the life of the building's core systems. Currently, connected lighting is the most popular in large-scale use cases.
In addition to intelligent lighting control, connected lighting can also support the automation of the entire building. The Bluetooth wireless lighting solution serves as a platform to further support the Landmark Solution (PoI), indoor navigation, asset tracking and intelligent buildings in buildings.
Martin Woolley, developer relations manager for EMEA, Bluetooth Technology Alliance, said: "The Bluetooth mesh network creates a distributed platform and dialog grid that can be applied to other wireless building services to create more possibilities. By using mesh networks and other connected devices Systems, buildings not only automatically control lighting, but also regulate temperature, track assets, save significant resources, and achieve environmental and economic benefits."
broadly used
Bluetooth mesh is rapidly becoming the wireless communication platform for many control systems, including lighting control solutions for the smart building and smart industrial markets. Leading companies such as Fulham and Silvair have begun to use LED mesh technology to achieve LED lighting control.
Russ Sharer, vice president of business development at Fulham, said: "Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have been weighing the best way to achieve intelligent lighting control, and our partnership with Silvair marks Fulham's new wireless lighting control. A key step. As the industry moves toward true smart lighting, support for Bluetooth meshes also marks the next logical direction for lighting communications."
More than just a lighting platform
“With the Bluetooth mesh network, the concept of active maintenance can be implemented to simple objects such as lighting sources,” says Silvair CEO Szymon Slupik. “Then, with the multi-service nature of Bluetooth wireless technology, these lights can support other services, smart. The value of these additional services provided by lighting is seven to ten times higher than the value of lighting control and energy saving itself."
The Bluetooth Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) monitors light, temperature, humidity, and occupancy to increase employee productivity, reduce building operating costs, and better meet equipment maintenance needs to reduce unplanned downtime.
The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam has replaced the original halogen lighting with a Bluetooth LED module. These lights are controlled by a Bluetooth switch that uses EnOcean energy harvesting technology to power a batteryless switch. In fact, the job was very simple. Two museum staff changed 100 lights in one night and did not interfere with the daily operation of the museum.
The Van Gogh Museum has a Bluetooth sensor that transmits data on occupancy, lux (illumination) levels, temperature and humidity. These sensors help the museum better preserve priceless artwork by controlling the environment. Lamps, sensors and gateways can be used as Bluetooth Beacons to support museums providing navigation services and landmark information based on the location of visitors within the library.
Retailers are the first adopters of the landmark (PoI) Beacon. One of the US retail giants, Target, replaced traditional ceiling lights with LED lights when renovating their stores. At the same time, Target installed a Bluetooth Beacon for positioning and navigation solutions in the fixtures, allowing customers to navigate through the store and find specific products. This is one of the largest indoor lighting-based indoor positioning solutions.
Will grow further in the future
Interconnected lighting is bigger than you think
In the next five years, "lighting as a platform" will increasingly be used in control, monitoring, and automation systems, opening the way for explosive growth in the deployment of Bluetooth device networks. ABI Research predicts that by 2022, Bluetooth automation, monitoring and control equipment will be shipped as part of the device network, with annual shipments exceeding 500 million. The Bluetooth device network will be controlled and monitored to the entire building automation for the entire Internet of Things (IoT). Support for smart facilities in the middle.
