Businesses and organizations are in constant pursuit of effective technology solutions to address their strategic, tactical, and operational effectiveness. As such, many organizations have become increasingly interested in exploring the use of intelligent systems, such as smart lighting solutions, to address this opportunity within the built environment. The convergence of the physical and virtual domains, such that physical devices that occupy the built environment now exist in a virtual, digital environment, is referred to as the internet of things (IoT).
The purpose of this document is to serve as a design guide and to provide lighting professionals with the necessary information to consider and evaluate potential connected lighting and IoT solutions and applications. While the body of work represented within this text is meant to explore the most common and emerging commercial connected lighting solutions from the perspective of the lighting professional, the rapid pace of change within the lighting industry and available differentiation among partners and/or suppliers will likely require readers to conduct more-specific or supplemental research for a given application.
