The Digitalisation of Lighting – Burden or Opportunity? How Qualified Bluetooth® Mesh is Changing the Role of Lighting in the Intelligent Building

Wednesday 12th October 15:15 - 16:00

  • The current general perception of intelligent lighting is that it is more a burden than an opportunity. To energy managers they are energy hungry items that must be tamed. To a facilities manager it is an infrastructure that is often neglected, difficult to manage, impossible to program and re-program and is expensive to maintain. To building owners they are depreciating assets with limited value beyond their primary function of delivering light.

The digitalisation of light and using technologies such as qualified Bluetooth mesh is challenging the paradigm of the role of lighting in the intelligent building and changing the perception of lighting from burden to tremendous opportunity. In this presentation, let us show you how qualified Bluetooth mesh enabled lighting can deliver rich, insightful data from all over your building and pave the road to a world of opportunity.
