Is Connected Lighting About To Become Much Simpler?

Connected lighting is an exciting innovation that gives you a new level of control over the lighting in a space but it’s currently complicated and expensive to integrate. However, this may change thanks to a new app-controlled, Bluetooh LE lighting system that consists of a seemingly simple lightbulb and captive touch light switch.  

“Once installed you can set up lighting schedules, control bulb brightness, reposition a light switch in your home, or add customizable lighting to a previously unlit area.”

While this approach to controlled lighting isn’t new, the price of this innovation has hit a new low, which may give the mass market an opportunity to try connected lighting in their homes and workspaces.

Do you think this new, inexpensive form of connected lighting will make a big impact in the lighting industry? Are you eager to incorporate connected lighting into your home or office?

    This sounds (or should I say looks) like an exciting new technology. I would love to have the capability to creatively customize my home’s lighting in all areas. I have seen some creative lights or lamps on sale online. Usually with these types of lights, you can program it to change colors every so often and you can even choose the colors from the color wheel which gives you millions of color options, rather than a limited amount of color swatches. But if the programming is as complex as this video suggests, the possibilities are intriguing to say the least.

    I am not real sure what connected lighting really is but it sounds great and if it can be improved or make an improvement to our energy usage etc. then that is a good thing and that is what we really want to do. I hope that this continues and you post some more about this because I am going to show it to my husband and he will start digging for more info.

    Speaking of connected lighting solutions, the company called, Thorn, attended the Belektro in Berlin, which is a trade fair for electrical engineering, electronics and lighting that took place for the 30th time this year. The Belektro took place from the 15th until the 17th October and welcomed more than 14 000 visitors. The exhibition is one of the largest trade fairs focusing on electronics and lighting in Germany. Imagine what a spectacle that must have been with all those creative concepts with lighting.

    There is no question about it, connected lighting solutions offer a world of possibilities to enhance the home. The creative options seem endless. This can bring a whole new perspective to the way you can choose to light your home. I can just imagine creating different light intensities for each room and even different colors. No longer do we have to settle for harshly lit dining rooms. We can adjust settings to give dining at night that warm, soft lit ambience we get in nice restaurants. Imagine hosting your significant other for dinner and customizing the lighting for your romantic dinner. It really is exciting to think about. All this light, however, comes at a cost; producing the electricity creates pollution from power plants and greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing energy needs from lighting even just by half could save billions of dollars and help wean us off our dependence on oil. Many now see light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, as the potential solution to the problem.
