Yesterday at LIGHTFAIR 2017 in Philadelphia, Enlighted was proud to participate in the launch of the IoT-Ready Alliance.

The IoT-Ready alliance comes at a critical juncture for the lighting industry. The LED lighting revolution is rapidly accelerating, yet most LED fixtures are still being shipped without IoT sensors installed. Because LED fixtures last decades, this creates enormous infrastructure lock-in risk for companies that adopt LED lighting that is not IoT-Ready.

It is estimated that 350 million LED lighting fixtures will ship worldwide this year including 140 million in the United States. Less than 5 percent of new LED fixtures are shipping with an IoT sensor. Upgrading to IoT after an LED fixture is installed is prohibitively expensive.

From Enlighted CEO Joe Costello:

“There is tremendous urgency to enable today’s shipping LED luminaires to be easily upgraded with IoT technology. Otherwise, these luminaires condemn buildings to be unintelligent for the entire lifecycle of those fixtures. Fifteen or more years is a long time before building owners have another chance to install smart sensors. With IoT-Ready™ fixtures, customers can install future-proof LED luminaires in their buildings.”
