Tech Focus: Signify Lighting the Fast Lane to IoT

Friday, September 10th, 2021

IoT – or the Internet of Things – has been the buzzword for a while now and businesses are constantly on the lookout for ways to fast track their IoT adoptions and rollouts.

I spoke with Jitender Khurana to find out how a traditional lighting network can be harnessed to rapidly transform a dumb building into a smart IoT-enabled environment.

I asked Jitender the key to Signify’s competitive advantage in helping its customers embrace IoT.

Three simple words: “Lighting is ubiquitous,” says Jitender, head honcho for Singapore and Emerging Markets at Signify.

Lighting is ubiquitous,” says Jitender Khurana, head honcho for Singapore and Emerging Markets at Signify.

But how does that give Signify a leg up in helping businesses embrace IoT more quickly and easily?

Well, the most tedious aspect of rolling out an IoT implementation is typically the deployment of IoT sensors and the network connecting these sensors back to the IoT platform.

Laying the network for both power supply and data tends to be both costly and time-consuming.

For Signify – that network is simply the lighting network that forms the basic infrastructure of any building or facility.

As far as the world leader in lighting is concerned, “Where there’s light(ing), there can be an IoT sensor integrated into the luminaire”.
