Computer scientists were looking for upgrading everyday appliances and objects by connecting them to the internet in the early 1970s and 1980s. The very first appliance that was connected to the internet was the Coke vending machine at Carnegie Mellon University. After that, a huge transformation can be noticed in the domain of the Internet of Things (IoT). Now, it is becoming all-pervasive in all sectors.
IoT lighting has revolutionized and every day an innovation takes place where new players become a part of the change. As a result, our perspective regarding lighting workspaces, homes, warehouses, and cities has also changed. Smart lighting fixtures by Wipro Lighting have played a major role in transforming the idea of illuminating commercial spaces.
Few pointers to highlight how the Internet of Things based smart lighting has modified the workplaces are listed below.
Workspaces turn into data gold-mine
The Internet of Things based lighting systems not only saves a huge amount of money for companies but also acts as a data mine. The elevation in the lighting system has made workspaces a treasury of data. By using this range of lighting fixtures, businesses can easily generate information and inputs that can work for a long time in space optimization and control.
Taking the lighting industry by a storm
IoT is transforming the way of interacting and connecting with the world, but there are few industries that are using this innovation with full potential like the lighting industry. Instead of just increasing the uptake of the lighting industry among other industries, IoT is opening the locks of novel functionalities and adding new dimensions to this domain.
With the involvement of IoT in lighting, professionals can use the required data anytime anywhere in the workspace. Moreover, with the inception of Li-Fi technology, Internet of Things based smart office lighting solutions can become a more secure and faster channel to provide high-speed internet using light.
Create a progressive workspace along with saving resources
Employee well-being and retention are the two sides of the same story. Internet of Things based Lighting improves productivity and imparts an enhancive experience at the workplace by providing the access to personalise a lighting plan based on one’s preferences.
Furthermore, data collected from the space optimisation tool can be utilized to determine the information and activity patterns that can be used to make correct decisions related to workplace design. The output of all the efforts and thoughtfulness is a highly efficient, productive and optimally used workplace.
The Internet of Things based technologies is constantly evolving and adding newer points of innovation, learning, and extending our reach to provide convenient solutions for our day to day problems.
In 2018, Wipro Lighting introduced the Internet of Lighting (IoL)® category of smart and connected lighting solutions. With this technology, we are revolutionarily designing the workspaces to deliver user-centric experiences. From human-centric lighting to Li-Fi and the Power over Ethernet based-technology solutions, you can explore numerous products from this category to uplift your workplace working pattern.
