The LED Shall Set You Free

Large apertures and clunky metal boxes are so twentieth century. Super-compact, efficient and highly directional, LED luminaires open up sleek, new, form factors and innovative, architecturally integrated lighting strategies. After a long decade of evolution, LEDs now drive the design of lighting fixtures. But what we've gained in broader design possibilities - even under tight energy codes - we may have lost in interoperability.

THE ERROR IN THE CURRENT SMART LIGHTING BUSINESS MODEL
It was after a dinner conversation at a recent Internet of Things (IoT) consortium meeting that I started thinking more about the industry's current business model and how IoT market innovators can commercialize emerging opportunities.

The smart lighting market is differentiated from other IoT markets by the strong relationship it creates between hardware and software. Consumers are accustomed to buying and determining value based on tangible things. Contrastingly, smart lighting is highly valuable, yet intangible because it is rooted in intricate software that makes a "dumb" bulb "smart". The software offers automation and intelligence which is then displayed through corresponding hardware.
