Philips Launches Wireless Smart Office Lighting Rather Than PoE to Reach the Masses

Philips Lighting today launched a wireless lighting-as-a-service (LaaS) initiative for commercial offices, hoping to convince building managers to implement smart Internet-connected lighting schemes that Philips has addressed to date with more expensive wired offerings based on Power over Ethernet (PoE) that appeals to a narrower audience. The new cloud-linked Philips InterAct Office system embeds sensors and ZigBee communication chips inside LED ceiling lights and luminaires, and reduces energy consumption by controlling lights more intelligently. Sensors such as motion detectors turn lights on, off, up, and down as needed, and users can wirelessly pre-program — or “commission” — groups of lights to respond in certain ways at certain times. They can also directly control lights wirelessly using ZigBee from phones or tablets. The smart lighting system allows remote, central management of floors or groups of buildings. http://www.ledsmagazine.com/
