Why Intelligent Office Lighting?
Big data and smart technology are intersecting everywhere - from a wristband that tracks your health or an app that lets you remotely control your home. But how can these functions translate to an office environment? Can the building where we work be as smart as our phones and computers?
Lighting accounts for one of the largest portions of energy consumption in a commercial environment - and yet light systems are often overlooked given their physical placement. But in a new era dedicated to the development of economically sustainable solutions - these systems present a great opportunity. How can we harness the power of data to fuel our energy needs? An intelligent lighting system, coupled with sensors and software, can not only provide unprecedented efficiency and utility - but has the unique position to offer a personalized experience to those it surrounds.
We believe openness leads to inventiveness and usefulness.
We also believe that it’s impossible for any organization to have all the best ideas, and we strive to collaborate with experts and entrepreneurs everywhere who share our passion to solve some of the world’s most pressing issues.
We’re initiating a fundamental shift in the way we do business - this is what we’ll stand for in our open collaboration efforts and how we will operate.
