Connected Architecture

A building becomes a learning ecosystem through connectivity – and can then continue to be operated in a profitable and sustainable way, taking users’ needs into account.

Value creation for a strong future

Connected architecture and digital applications and services allow building data to be measured and therefore to be improved. Buildings become learning ecosystems that are continually being tailored a little more closely to people’s requirements and sensory experiences, while also conserving resources. Thanks to our sophisticated knowledge of specific applications, our lighting solutions create real added value in every situation. This is light as a starting point for a better future.

Lighting solutions that deliver real added value for their specific area of application – whether in industry, offices, educational institutions, retail or museums: we contribute to optimising work processes, increasing building value, improving health and well-being and creating experiences through the interplay of light, architecture and the senses.

Smart not static

Connected architecture uses the lighting installation as the basis for smart building infrastructure. Luminaires are fitted with sensors that collect a variety of building and environmental data and precisely analyse demand. Aspects such as brightness, presence, temperature and air quality are measured. This data can be used to regulate environmental conditions, ensuring that energy is used efficiently and a pleasant atmosphere for users is created. Room quality is connected with all the senses – which has a direct effect on our quality of life.

Lighting management and buildings on the path to a learning ecosystem

If a sky scanner measures a high level of sunlight, a smart lighting management system will automatically lower the level of artificial light produced. A free-standing luminaire with sensors is close to the user and can instantaneously measure and optimise factors such as air quality or temperature.

What makes sense for the environment also makes economic sense: smart building technologies offer huge potential for saving on operating costs. Connectivity can go even further than that, however, and transform architecture into a learning ecosystem that continually improves as it adapts to ambitious sustainability goals and people’s requirements in each environmental condition.
