Philips Introduces Innovative Smart Lighting Solutions in Indonesia

    Philips Illuminates Largest Convention Center in South East Asia

    October 7, 2015

    Jakarta, Indonesia  As the leader in the lighting industry, Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA) continues to bring to Indonesia new smart lighting solutions with innovative technology and features that improve people’s lives. 


    Philips Lighting has championed the transition to LED-based lighting during the past five years.  In that period, Philips has actively campaigned for the use of LED lighting to government, the private sector and household consumers in an effort to realize the clear benefits of energy efficiency and cost savings. 


    “Indonesia is of course a special market for Philips Lighting.  Starting 120 years ago with incandescent light bulbs, Philips continues to be the leader in lighting solutions by bringing the latest innovations in LED technology to indoor and outdoor spaces across the country,” said Chandra Vaidyanathan, Senior Vice President & Country Manager, Philips Lighting Indonesia. “We remain committed to improving people’s lives through innovative lighting solutions, and to make that happen, Philips has worked with many partners to bring innovations in LED lighting to the country.”


    Today, Philips Lighting exhibited its next level of LED lighting systems that incorporates digital technology to create smart lighting solutions.  These smart solutions move LED lighting beyond its proven energy-saving/cost-saving benefits and add new capabilities and applications. 


    For indoor spaces, Philips showcased its Scene Switch technology that enables one LED bulb to produce two shades of ambient light – white or yellow – with just one click.  


    The indoor lighting solution, Dynalite, can adjust the room’s lighting to meet specific functional needs.  Installed in a conference room, for example, Dynalite uses pre-set lighting scenarios to support presentations, social gatherings or exhibitions -- just by clicking the remote control.


    Philips has also introduced CityTouch, a digital lighting system that enables city administrators to operate, control and maintain street lighting via a laptop or computer connected to the internet. Using Philips LED luminaires, the city can potentially save up to 60% of its energy consumption. Philips also brought access to lighting for people who live in remote areas where electricity was not available by using solar-powered lighting systems.



    The Color Kinetic lighting series links LEDs to a wireless control system that enables color and brightness to be customized from a central monitor. This customization can improve energy efficiency while boosting safety as well as civic pride.  Since 2012, Philips has used Color Kinetic and other lighting systems to beautify landmarks and spaces in cities across the country:  including Monas in Jakarta, Tugu Pahlawan in Surabaya, Jembatan Ampera in Palembang, Ksatria Gatot Kaca in Bali, Serangan Umum Monument in Yogyakarta, Gedung Sate in Bandung, and Mandala Monument in Makassar.


    Recently, Philips completed a landmark project with Sinarmas Land to illuminate its monumental venue, Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE), the largest such commercial space in South East Asia. Within a total area of approximately 220,000 sqm (more than 30 standard football fields), Philips prepared and installed LED luminaires for the 20,000 lighting points needed to illuminate the interior and exterior spaces of the complex.


    “Philips has delivered a total lighting solution that enables us to manage the operational costs of the venue efficiently,” said Monik William, Deputy Group CEO of Sinarmas Land.


    To this, Chandra concluded, “This project was very gratifying for Philips because we were able to work with a leading developer and architectural team to contribute across the complete range of creative, technical and operational aspects to help make the venue a stunning experience while also being energy-efficient.”
