    What makes a lighting system connected?  

    Connected luminaires

    Connected luminaires


    Luminaires are uniquely identified and seamlessly integrated into the IT network in a building or city, and share information about their status and operations.

    Connected spaces

    Connected spaces

    Outfitted with integrated sensors, each luminaire becomes a point of intelligence that can share information on occupancy, activity patterns, changes in temperature or humidity, and daylight levels.
    Connected people

    Connected people


    By integrating wireless communications into the lighting system, you can deliver location-based services and in-context information via mobile apps to people in illuminated spaces.


    Connected lighting gives you greater customer insight, lets you deliver superior customer experience, creates personalized workspaces, and adds a layer of intelligence to the environment which responds and adapts to people’s preferences and needs.

    Connected software

    Connected software

    With our sophisticated lighting management software, operators of spaces can monitor and manage the lighting system in real time.


    You can store, visualize, and analyze historical information about luminaire performance.


    One such system used for public outdoor spaces is CityTouch.
