Lighting in the Internet of Things (IoT)
A new era for Lighting
Lighting is set to be a cornerstone for the Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure. Together with our partners we are exploring the combination of lighting and IoT. With the “Internet of Light” we will create new, improved experiences and services in commercial, building, and city spaces.
Creating Living Spaces
Lighting is everywhere, connected, and digital. We believe that by creating an open and secure ecosystem of IP-connected lighting and devices we can enable the people experience of the future; delivering new services for users and managers of the spaces we visit in our daily lives.
We are developing proof of concept projects with an ecosystem of partners and customers to explore this new era of lighting together.
Highlight: Life Cycle Tower ONE, Dornbirn, Austria
Enhancing an existing lighting system to unlock information about building usage
A collaborative effort between Bosch Software Innovations, Dassault Systèmes, ModCam, Rhomberg Bau, and Zumtobel Group.
The modern Life Cycle Tower owned by Rhomberg Group, and equipped with a state-of-the-art Zumtobel lighting solution including a smart Zumtobel controls system, aims at the highest standards of sustainability and user comfort.
Through additional sensors and integration of the Bosch IoT suite, a user interface was developed that provides real time insights into the building’s status and technical health. Areas covered are for example energy usage and savings per luminaire, per floor or for the entire building as well as visualisations of presence data and use of office spaces. A heatmap shows occupancy in a space to help optimise usage efficiency. The system also gives insight relating to operating hours and the usage history of the lighting system to improve the maintenance process. A maintenance history shows anomalous events in the system such as spikes, drops, devices being offline, intermittent issues.

Our Partnership Ecosystem
We believe the true value of the Internet of Lighting is only unlocked with partners in-and-outside of the lighting industry. As a partner we are committed to operate openly and create customer-centric solutions with the highest standards of data privacy & security.
