One of the world’s leading trade fairs for lighting and building services, Light + Building hosts technology innovators from around the globe, facilitating the promotion of intelligent and networked solutions, future-oriented technologies, and current design trends.
Just days into this year’s show, Bluetooth® technology has emerged as a major player and a key enabling innovation in integrating lighting and networked building services to fully exploit energy-savings potential in smart buildings. This year at Light + Building, attendees had an opportunity to get a first-hand look at how Bluetooth® technology is powering smart lighting and smart building services with many new Bluetooth mesh products recently released on the market.
“Bluetooth has emerged as…a key enabling technology in integrating lighting and networked building services.”
Light + Building is Blue
