In the age of digitalisation, the days when lighting fixtures used to do nothing but emit light are long gone. The Internet of Things allows conventional LED lighting fixtures to be used for more than just their traditional functions. In the scope of concepts such as smart buildings, lighting infrastructure is become networked and, therefore, “smart”. In future, such projects will allow TRILUX to offer customers additional services based on its intelligent lighting systems. com2m has developed an IoT cloud solution for trendsetting digital services in close cooperation with the lighting fixture manufacturer. That has allowed TRILUX GmbH & Co. KG, which is based in Arnsberg in the Sauerland region of Germany, to become a leading driver of digitalisation in its industry.
com2m has developed a cloud-based, holistic software solution for TRILUX based on its own IoT platform. It lets the lighting specialist offer its business customers forward-looking solutions. Specifically, it can be used to read, save and analyse the energy costs and performance of each individual light. Combining the lighting fixtures with TRILUX’s LiveLink light management system makes it possible to record and transfer that data in the cloud. TRILUX’s customers, including large-scale users of lighting in industrial production plants or hardware stores, benefit from digital services such as energy and light monitoring, which allow performance data to be managed centrally, and the optimisation of maintenance cycles.
