In April, JLL’s Larry Lubeck attended LIGHTFAIR International in San Diego, the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference. At this event, industry-leading organizations presented the latest and greatest innovations in lighting. Below, Larry discusses where the lighting industry is going and calls out 3 important lighting trends that you need to know about.
There’s no doubt that technological advances are revolutionizing the lighting industry – and new, advanced products are continually being brought to the marketplace. The amount of information related to watts, lumens, sensors, wireless, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE), blue tooth, lamp construction, and other topics can be overwhelming to navigate, especially as the industry evolves at such a rapid pace.
So, what lighting trends do you need to be aware of as your organization navigates this new territory?
- Lighting systems, meet wireless. Web-enabled smart lighting systems offer a multitude of benefits – from offering advanced control over your lighting systems (in many cases, from a mobile device) to gathering valuable occupancy data that you can use to identify how and when spaces are utilized. The benefits don’t stop there, however – by offering your employees the opportunity to customize their work environment by setting their own lighting preferences, you’re also able to enhance and elevate the experiences that your employees have in your facilities each day.
