Digital transformation has been enabling smarter buildings for decades. Today, as you enter a building, the use of electricity, lighting, and WiFi are already taken for granted, but with an increasing demand for IoT devices, a lot more data can be collected to better understand how buildings are being used. Bluetooth® technology, with its large […]
With ceiling devices increasing in number there is a growing interest in the collection of data related to lighting, air quality, space utilization, and more. Quite often all those systems require their own control, limiting their adoption. Thanks to the collaboration between the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) and DiiA, intelligent luminaires can now be […]
Bluetooth® Mesh technology already has a strong position in commercial lighting. Especially when it comes to retrofits, it allows for greater energy efficiency, faster deployment, and a higher quality occupant experience. Can this technology be implemented in horticulture? What would be the impact on energy consumption, plant production, and operation costs? According to the Markets […]
