Smart Lighting: creating your experience was never so easy


    June 1, 2022


    Gone are the days of just switching a light on and off. Today’s smart bulbs and luminaires are opening up a whole new range of features and applications. As our devices become ever more integrated and connected, even our lamps are getting smarter with built-in connectivity and processing power.


    And it is not just the bulbs that are getting smart.


    New LED luminaire concepts are coming to the market with unique and fun smart features. Consumers are also increasingly looking for these features in the products they purchase; from colour changing to auto dimming, and more. Here are a few examples of the smart features that can be built into smart lighting using the EnabLED portfolio of technologies and patents.

    Flexible Mapping of Audio to Light


    Why stop at a single colour when you can have more. Our innovations provide an immersive experience by modulating room lighting with your selected audio using flexible mapping technology. Great for that disco party, whether in your living room or at the local nightclub. Numerous lighting effects are possible based on changes in the characteristics of the audio. The EnabLED portfolio provides these technologies to bring your products to the forefront of smart lighting.

    Colour Matching 


    Want the light in your room to match a certain colour of choice? Simply hold an item of the desired colour up to the light sensor built into the bulb or luminaire, and it can recognise and display that exact colour. For businesses and organisations, having your storefront lights match your brand colour has never been easier. For retailers: imagine having attractive colour displaying options for products without any need for complicated user interaction or expert knowledge in colour mixing theory.

    Daylight Harvesting


    Dimmable LEDs have been around for years, but these bulbs still needed someone to manually adjust the light level, even if only on their mobile phone. Adding a light sensor and controller to the bulb or luminaire, allows the lamp to automatically adjust to the ambient lighting level. If the sun comes out, it can automatically dim or even switch off and vice versa when it gets dark. This can further reduce the already low power consumption of LEDs, potentially saving significant amounts of energy, especially in large offices or other workplaces.  Auto dimming is another of the many smart compatible technologies available in the EnabLED portfolio to enhance the user experience and drive sales of your smart LED-based products.


    These are just a few possibilities offered by smart lighting solutions. There are many more and having access to all the technologies in the EnabLED program makes it easy to add these functionalities to existing lamps and luminaires. With the smart lighting market expected to grow to over USD 30 billion by 2025, getting on board now is a smart move for any LED-based brand owner.
