Overview

The growth of smart lighting is primarily driven by the growing need for energy efficiency, increasing support by government and awareness among building owners. Traditional lighting controls consume approximately 40% energy. Gartner predicts that smart lighting has the potential to reduce energy costs by 90 percent.

SoftDEL has been helping global lighting OEMs across the key phases of lighting solution development. We understand trends, challenges, and technology possibilities across commercial building lighting, industrial lighting, stage lighting. This has helped us provide unique value propositions to our customers. Some of our key service offerings include hardware and software engineering, IoT and connectivity protocols, application development, and testing.

The Challenge

The urge to save energy and advancements in technology are reshaping the world of lighting. This evolution is driving the demand for smart lighting control solutions.

Smart lighting technology needs advanced components like relays, occupancy sensors, controllers, actuators, transmitters, receivers, lighting control components, connectivity technologies (wired and wireless), and smart, intelligent applications.
