The IoT platform is much like an app store, where users can individually and flexibly combine the necessary software components for the respective application. The EDEKA regional company Minden-Hannover is already using Lightelligence in a pilot installation as well.
Lightelligence is specially designed to meet the needs of the light and building market, delivers industry-specific components and operates with appropriate communications standards. The platform also systematically takes an ecosystem approach.
Lightelligence makes it possible to bring together smart control systems in buildings and enables sensors to exploit data multiple times. For instance, sensor-based logistics solutions can use a warehouse’s lighting infrastructure to record inventories, optimize warehouse usage and monitor the temperature and humidity of perishable goods. Motion detectors in office buildings can be used to manage meeting rooms more efficiently and optimally plan cleaning.
The EDEKA regional company Minden-Hannover is already using Lightelligence in one of its Berlin stores. A pilot installation with a link to Lightelligence was started in November. The installation includes a guest Wi-Fi for customers, indoor navigation, customer flow and conversion rate analysis and environmental sensors for temperature, humidity and CO2 levels in the ambient air.
