Smart Lighting System Rises at Toronto Skyscraper with IP Addressable LEDs

Toronto tower
The EY Tower would presumably be one of the world’s tallest Internet-controlled skyscrapers. And it’s not even Power over Ethernet. The owners of a 42-floor skyscraper under construction in Toronto are outfitting it top-to-bottom with an Internet-based building automation network that tenants can tap into for intelligent lighting controls, provided they make their individual LED lights IP addressable. The development illustrates that yet another force — the real estate industry — is getting behind lighting’s move into the world of the Internet. Like other smart lighting systems, it would presumably let building occupants turn lights on and off via computers and gadgets, which they could also use to brighten or dim. Some systems also provide the capability to change colors and light temperature, and some include sensors that help control other building functions such as heating and physical security, and that collect data on occupancy that facilities managers use to make more efficient use of space. http://www.ledsmagazine.com
