Become IoT ready with connected fixtures

Today, smart lighting and connected fixtures is on every luminaire manufacturers agenda and a quick time-to-market solution to become “IoT ready” is crucial in order to retain or create your competitive advantage. But how do you get smart and rid yourself of  connectivity panic?

 

10 years ago we discussed how and when the LED was going to be used and adopted by the market and many of us were surprised how fast the LED revolution happened. The revolution we see now is within connected fixtures and not only is smart lighting a strong trend for achieving sustainable buildings and energy efficient cities, but today, luminaires in general are expected to be able to do more than just turn on and off.  But the most pressing question regards how fast these new features can be implemented.

 

The LED revolution happened fast and this coming lighting revolution will progress even more rapidly – there is no time to waste. A quick time-to-market solution, to have your luminaires become IoT ready, is crucial in order to retain or create your competitive advantage. But how do you add value to your fixtures and have them become IoT ready now, without having the in-house capabilities and knowledge it takes to develop your own reliable radio communication solution? The answer to this problem is one of the “ready-made” products for easy integration on the market. But the fact is that an IoT implementation is a big change and it requires future possibilities and business development needs to be weighed in in the decision making. So how do you combine rapid time to market and the option to do future developments?

 

With Lumenradio’s AirGlow, your fixtures will be IoT ready in a matter of minutes. But the main gain, which separates AirGlow from other wireless lighting controls, is that AirGlow has unique scaling abilities; it allows for light control of individual rooms but also the possibility to scale and allow for building wide control – all using the same product. This means that you can have your fixtures IoT ready in an instant, and still keep the options open for future developments and expand your offer further on – enabling even more ways to save energy and creating a better tomorrow.

 

Compared to other solutions, in almost every case, you have to choose between either a ready-made product for light control of individual rooms or an operating system for building wide control. With AirGlow you don’t have to choose – you get both options!  

 

Want to know more about this unique scalability and how AirGlow with minimum effort gives you maximum possibilities? Stay tuned for next blogpost or visit us at Lux Live (booth K11) to see AirGlow in real life and stop by for a “Coffee and connectivity” chat.

New additions to the Lumen team

Nerds will rule the earth | This year LumenRadio celebrates 10 years, and it’s only fitting that our staff is growing as the company ages – with 10 new employees, nonetheless.

 

Since the beginning of this year, our team of talents has grown with 10 new members and one new office in Germany. We’ve expanded in all corners of the company; from sales and marketing to research and development, with the latter experiencing the biggest growth. As we always aim to improve our offer and development of our technology, it’s of high importance to have a big and strong team working in research and development.

Working on new patents and innovations, along with applying these to our customers needs requires many dedicated co-workers and we are happy that our R&D staff has grown with many new talents. says Michael Karlsson, R&D Manager.

 

There is more to come

The expansion is not over, the LumenRadio team will keep on growing and welcoming new members around the world.

Michael continues: It could be interesting to start up an office abroad, solely for development. The technology industry is moving forward in a rapid pace and so must we if we want to continue to be front-runners in the field

 

The LumenRadio team looks forward to a productive and innovative time to come with our new curious and passionate members. As one of our colleagues once said; Nerds will rule the earth!
