Future of Lighting “


In most businesses today, Wi-Fi is as commonplace and arguably more vital to daily operations than running water. To many, it is synonymous with wireless technology. However, there are other wireless technologies with the power to revolutionise aspects of office life that are currently being under-valued by businesses. Wireless lighting controls are one example. For many organisations, the reliance on batteries to power wireless lighting controls has negatively impacted their willingness to adopt this type of technology on their premises. However, the advent of the EnOcean standard– which takes ambient energy, harvests it and converts it into a radio signal- has eliminated this problem. It means light switches can be entirely self powered without batteries or wiring. In the future, thanks to EnOcean, wireless lighting controls will be as ubiquitous as


its wired equivalent, while retaining its distinct advantages of cost efficiency, speed of installation and flexibility.

The future light will be much more comfortable. Colour temperatures might in some areas be brought down to a level of 3000K. Glare free lighting fixtures will become a request due to the high intensity of the LED’s. Energy consumption might become an issue in another way, so you will have to distinguish between functional/general lighting and comfort/atmosphere lighting. Dimming facilities will become important for setting the scene when it comes to the comfort and atmosphere parameters. Product design and the quality of lighting will be brought more in focus due to experiences people have got through the enforced use of energy saving light bulbs.

On a purely technological level, we are pushing toward


smaller, brighter and more efficient light sources, which means changes on two fronts. For instance, the use of LEDs arrays has become mainstream, but the single LED is rapidly evolving into high-power, high-intensity light source. As the power requirements for sources decrease, the opportunity to use them in non-traditional ways (as scenery, or in costumes with wireless control) is vastly increased. Look for battery- powered light sources to be used in exciting and new ways in the near future. This opens even more opportunity, and drives even more innovation in the entertainment market.
