Dutch lighting company Signify, formerly known as Philips Lighting, is currently holding an exhibition in Jakarta to showcase for the first time in Indonesia its latest lighting technology, Interact IoT (Internet of Things).
The exhibition, called “City of Light”, is being held at Senayan City in Jakarta and runs until Jan. 13, 2019.
Rami Hajjar, the country leader of Signify operations in Indonesia, said in Jakarta on Monday that the Interact IoT lighting technology enabled its professional customers to unlock the full potential of connected lighting for the IoT.
Interact puts sensors and chips into lights and lighting infrastructure to detect information such as room occupancy, road traffic and air quality. It connects this information through wired and wireless communication networks to a cloud computing system that provides analysis such as how to better use space inside a commercial building and how to improve the flow of cars on a highway.
Hajjar said the exhibition allowed visitors to see how Interact IoT worked and how the lighting system could improve the way people lived and worked toward a better world. “The Interact IoT platform transforms the lighting system from individual points of illumination into integrated points of data,” Rami said at the launch of the Interact IoT platform.
Signify has already installed 29 million connected light points worldwide and plans for every new LED product it produces to be connectable by 2020.
Signify, which changed its name from Philips Lighting in May 2017, has been in Indonesia for more than 120 years. (das/bbn)
