Intelligent Lighting: Realising Responsive, Smart Illumination
Intelligent lighting: realising responsive, smart illumination By Dr. Harry Zervos, Technology Analyst The concept of intelligent lighting has drastically changed in recent years, moving away from applications relating to stage lighting and non-stationary illumination in order to encompass sustainability in energy consumption, through the ability to wirelessly control on/off and dimming/brightening functions according to sensory input from the environment of operation. Whether incorporated as part of building automation or integrated in civil infrastructure in the wider idea of a smarter city, it involves utilization of wireless sensor, connectivity and energy harvesting technologies, allowing for more sustainable practices. Spearheaded by applications such as wireless switches for light controls by companies like EnOcean, it is now growing into something much larger and much more pervasive.
Integrated lighting solutions for your home

Aside from the well documented activities of EnOcean in the space of building automation, complete solutions are also coming from collaborations between other companies. For example, NXP, utilizing its proprietary Green Chip technology, is working with GreenWave Reality, a global innovator in smart home services, who has developed a connected lighting platform that enables consumers to control their lighting within the home via remote control, smartphone applications or in-home sensors that detect changes in motion or lighting conditions, all without requiring any rewiring of the home.
