Overview

Luminaires with advanced functionality, LiFi and human-centric lighting systems are the future of Smart Lighting.
Do you have the technology expertise to keep up with the speed of light?

Lighting systems are typically proprietary networks supporting multiple devices. Although there are many communication protocols used within the industry, there is no universally accepted standard protocol.
Softdel’s experience in developing Building Management Systems and technology expertise in multiple communication protocols enable the company to design solutions that integrate lighting with third party systems using Application Programming Interfaces (API) and IoT Gateways.
The end goal of smart lighting is energy optimization and cost saving. Softdel helps OEMs and building management companies achieve this using specialized lighting management and control tools and applications.

IoT Solutions

Softdel’s solutions in lighting include connectivity harnessing the power of IoT to introduce automation and off-site control or increase efficiency. In the lighting industry, this translates to occupancy sensors, daylight harvesting and power monitoring, all working towards the end goal of optimizing energy consumption.

Connectivity Protocols

Connectivity of lighting end-points is critical to centralized control. While wireless (WiFi) communication is widely prevalent, LiFi (Light Fidelity) is the communication evolution of the future. Softdel solutions and products help OEMs enhance connectivity through:

  • Readily deployable, royalty free stacks
  • Stack integration with OEM applications
  • Standard protocol implementation (BACnet, Modbus, etc.)
  • Custom protocol development and maintenance
  • Native IoT connectivity protocols support for MQTT, Thread, CoAP
  • BACnet and Wireless connectivity products that eliminate the need for expensive, time-consuming field tests

Gateway Design & Development

Lighting networks are generally proprietary networks, with little standardization. Communication among disparate products running on different network protocols is a major challenge. The solution to this is a gateway; a device or software module that understands multiple protocols and enables seamless communication. Softdel’s expertise in multiple connectivity protocols makes it an excellent gateway solutions partner.
