For new construction and retrofits alike, connected lighting is now a given. It is necessary to meet code, but connected lighting does more than meet code. It opens the door to bring smart sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure into a building because most of this advanced technology is installed through light fixtures. Current technology enables end-users to install the IoT infrastructure now, and unlock the benefits of IoT whenever the time is right. It is critical to ask the smart building questions and weigh the pros and cons during new construction or a lighting retrofit since lighting isn’t typically upgraded for another two decades. Discover the benefits of considering IoT technology during a renovation or new build, what types of technology are on the market, the return on investment of IoT and the pitfalls of waiting.
