Innovative trends in LED lighting control

The controlling of LED lighting has evolved from simple switches to sophisticated systems that can manage multiple aspects of lighting. This world is constantly evolving and the latest trends allow companies and organisations to optimise lighting for improved efficiency, personalisation and sustainability.

By participating in this innovative movement, professional spaces can be transformed into well-lit and pleasant environments that contribute to both people's well-being and environmentally conscious goals.

With the emergence of smart technologies and sustainability goals, several trends are transforming the way LED lighting is controlled.

  1. Integrated lighting systems: LED lighting is increasingly being integrated with other building automation systems (BMS), such as HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) and security systems. This enables building managers to seamlessly integrate lighting into the overall management of the building.
  2. Wireless MESh networks are becoming increasingly common for controlling LED lighting and connecting LED luminaires. They offer extensive coverage, self-organisation and self-healing capability, enabling efficient management of large lighting installations. These systems can not only help save energy and reduce costs, but also improve the overall lighting experience and functionality.
  3. Wireless Communication Protocols: are designed to control and monitor LED lighting remotely. Examples include Zigbee, Bluetooth LE (Low Energy), Z-Wave and Thread. These protocols enable users to control lighting systems from their smartphone, tablet or other smart devices.
  4. Cloud-based platforms (Cloud-based Control) allow administrators to adjust and monitor lighting remotely via internet connections.
  5. Human Centric Light takes people's circadian rhythms into account and adjusts the colour temperature and brightness of LED lighting to improve well-being, productivity and sleep quality. Adjustments can be made manually or controlled automatically based on the time of day.
  6. Daylight sensors measure the amount of natural light in a room and automatically adjust LED lighting for an optimal balance between natural and artificial light.
  7. Internet of Things (IoT): LED lighting is increasingly being integrated into the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem. This allows lighting systems to be linked to sensors, smart control systems and networks, enabling dynamic adjustments based on environmental factors such as movement, human presence, daylight levels and temperature. LED lighting can be monitored and managed remotely. This enables proactive maintenance and increases energy consumption efficiency.
  8. Li-Fi (Light Fidelity): Li-Fi is an innovative technology that can transmit data via visible light. This allows LED lighting to be used not only for illumination, but also for wireless data transmission in environments where radio waves can cause interference. Li-Fi has potential for applications such as indoor navigation, high-performance communication and data exchange.
  9. With Power over Ethernet (PoE), both data and power are sent over a single Ethernet cable. This makes it possible to control and monitor LED luminaires over the network.
  10. Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI): AI technologies are used to optimise and predict lighting systems. AI can identify patterns in lighting use and automatically make adjustments to maximise efficiency and comfort.
