NEW for East Coast! IoT & Smart Lighting Forum

IoT Smart Lighting Forum Image

The IoT (Internet of Things) is a concept sweeping many facets of life but what really is the Internet of Things?  Smart Lighting is usually defined as the use of IoT to achieve energy efficiency and maintenance.  Simply put, Forbes magazine defines the IoT as, ”the concept of basically connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet (and/or to each other).”

So for lighting, this essentially means connecting luminaires and control systems to the Internet, and by default to one another and potentially other building systems.  But what does that mean for lighting and what are its implications?  This forum strives to address both the potential and challenges of IoT and whether Smart Lighting truly extends beyond using connectivity for energy efficiency and maintenance.
