The impact of IoT on smart lighting

10 years ago, building smart homes and automated buildings seemed like an unachievable dream. With time, however, this is becoming a reality. With the Internet of Things (IoT), it has become possible to automate various aspects of a building. The lighting system is an example of the many aspects.
Various companies have started developing remote controlled lighting systems. Gooee, a leading Smart Lighting manufacturer, has been in the forefront when it comes to fully designing ad implementing such systems. The industry has succeeded in developing web applications that enable one to remotely control a smart lighting system.
Such systems are convenient and will surely take the market by storm when fully implemented. The efficiency of a smart lighting system cannot be matched. Consider a situation where one has to monitor over 300 lighting bulbs in an organization, and ensure that they are switched off whenever they aren’t being used. It becomes tiresome to do this manually as one will have to walk around checking each bulb. With remote control, it is possible for one to monitor every bulb using a smartphone or any other smart gadget. This makes it possible to switch various bulbs on or off as one pleases. Smart lighting also enables the inclusion of sensors in the system. Sensors work to detect motion or heat patterns and therefore, controlling the lighting. Practically, the lights are supposed to turn on if the sensor detects motion in the room, and turn off whenever one leaves the room. This saves on electricity efficiently.
