Smart, Intelligent, IoT Ready, connected are all the lighting buzz words going around and everyone has a little different spin. This talk will explore the topic of “Smart” lighting. It will take a look at the different wireless protocols, discuss the idea of decentralized control, content delivery and share some case studies where smart lighting has been implemented. Interoperability continues to be the goal but many systems remain closed. This talk will explore where interoperability is happening and how it is being done.
