Luminaires as an infrastructure platform
Regiolux is not only a specialist for intelligent lighting solutions but also handles Advanced Services. This means that the specialists from Regiolux take care of the planning and implementation of the wishes of customers who want to make use of new and innovative technical possibilities. Regiolux has proven that it is also a capable partner for complex requirements that go beyond the simple use of light and luminaires, be these location based services such as indoor navigation or proximity marketing, wired or wireless lighting control, Human Centric Lighting (HCL) or monitoring and remote maintenance, right through to the Internet of Things (IoT).
Luminaires are an ideal infrastructure platform for Advanced Services since additional intelligent components can be integrated. These make use of the power supply of the luminaires and their even and unimpeded distribution in the building. Specialists from Regiolux take care of the implementation of the desired solution with the corresponding partners. Planners who have been commissioned by their clients to implement a system for Indoor navigation, for example, can contact Regiolux directly. The overall conditions are then clarified jointly and a concept is drawn up with a partner. In this case, Regiolux integrates a beacon infrastructure into the luminaires and commissions them together with the partner company. In all of the Advanced Services, the customer has the big advantage that Regiolux can offer the best and most cost-effective system because it is not dependent on any particular manufacturer.
Location Based Services: Indoor navigation means that the user is guided from A to B by means of an app. Since the technology is based on beacons and does not depend on GPS, precise navigation within building complexes is also possible. While on the way to his favourite store, the customer is provided with additional information on what could be of interest for him or her. The routes can also be drawn and shown cumulatively as a heat map on a map so that visitor flows can be analysed, for example. In proximity marketing, the user receives relevant content by means of an app or a product offer directly on his phone - regardless of his position in a shop or mall. With tracking and asset tracking, the aim is simply to locate persons or objects with the aid of a beacon infrastructure.
Human Centric Lighting (HCL) is the very top end of lighting control. This "feel-good light" that adapts itself to the daily biorhythms of the person requires special controllers and devices that can fulfil this task. Of course, the luminaires also have to be equipped with the corresponding Tunable White technology.
Light scene controllers implement lighting scenes matched to the persons and create lighting scenes for certain activities. Both the correct luminous intensity and the appropriate light colour should be perfectly matched and capable of being called up at the press of a button or automated.
Wireless, radio-based lighting control systems (Smart Mesh) are the trend of the future. The individual devices communicate with one another through a corresponding wireless protocol; the system can be configured and then commissioned or operated with a tablet or smart phone. All kinds of wireless technology are used depending on the requirements with respect to the range, networking with other building services or d for reasons arising from the application.
However, modern lighting control systems do not necessarily have to be operated by wireless. Current wired systems are extremely powerful and can offer a degree of functional security that may not be able to be guaranteed by wireless systems under certain circumstances. However, all of these are digital, and most can be programmed or parametrised with a PC or a laptop, Bus technologies such as DALI or networking via Ethernet are implemented reliably and allow rapid response times and flawless operation.
Monitoring, remote maintenance and the Internet of Things (IoT): Lighting controls systems that can be networked and programmed permit functions that go well beyond the norm. System data for monitoring can be collected and evaluated by coupling to clouds and ensures trouble-free system operation by preventive means. A remote access option can avoid costly service call-outs. The Internet of Things (IoT) makes of all this possible, entirely within the meaning of Industry 4.0 for lighting systems as well.
