Conversations around IoT and the connected home usually begin with talk of platforms, protocols, and the latest new gadget to hit the market. But what about homeowners that aren’t early technology adopters? Why should the mass market care? This talk will explore some of the benefits of connected lighting in a residential setting, and how it can coexist within the overall connected home. Connected lighting plays a critical role in many aspects of our lives; whether it be during our wakeup or bedtime routine, times when we want to concentrate and work, or even have a little fun. Additionally, these capabilities can tie into other connected home experiences and events. Safety, security, and lifestyle are all areas that benefit from, or depend on, connected lighting. These experiences are all very relevant, real, and able to be accomplished today.
