Philips wants to lead LED lighting

 Philips Lighting is seeing a bright future in India, where it aims to develop the nation’s charge in the LED (light-emitting diode) lighting space, and become the frontrunner.

With an overall lighting market size of Rs 10,020 crore in India, LED lighting holds the share of Rs 2,270 crore. While LED lighting is gradually becoming commonplace, especially in urban areas, Philips is initiating technological enhancements. “LEDs have changed the face of the lighting industry in India. With technological advancements, lighting has now become digitally connected. The Internet of Things (IoT) is prevalent in the lighting industry as well, and LED Lighting, which can be easily customised to suit the moods and requirements of customers, has led to the emergence of connected lighting,” Philips Lighting India (PLIC) Marketing Head Sumit Joshi told Deccan Herald.

“Sensors, wireless networks, and LED lighting, all come together to be managed as a whole lighting solution, at the touch of a handheld device, and the intelligent lighting system can incorporate sensors to provide anonymous occupancy and climate data for more efficient facilities management and energy savings. It can also gather data on how space is being used,” Joshi said.

Joshi said the company will expand its range of personal wireless lighting systems for homes, which can be controlled from a smartphone or a tablet. “The company has launched the world’s first complete Power over Ethernet connected lighting system for offices that gives workers smartphone-based control of their office lighting, and building managers new insights into building usage,” Joshi claimed.

Besides, Philips has rolled out CityTouch — a remote lighting management system —  that allows streetlights to be instantly connected to a remote lighting management system.
