The Internet of Things that illuminates

If you think that nothing is simpler than lighting a light bulb, you have not come to terms with GreenWave Reality and its desire to illuminate us in a tech version. Whether they are fluorescent and energy-saving bulbs or LED lights it doesn't matter, the control will still be in the user's hands. Switching on, switching off, degree of brightness, (…)

If you think nothing is easier than turning on one light bulb, you have not come to terms with GreenWave Reality and his desire to illuminate us in a tech version. Whether they are fluorescent and energy-saving bulbs or LED lights it doesn't matter, the control will still be in the user's hands.

Power on, power off, degree of brightness, motion sensorsGreg Memo – ex Cisco and founder of the company – seems to have no doubts: technology allows all this. And not only that, every type of light bulb will become "dimmable", without electricians or additional cables for the home.

When? In a future already present.

Like? Just insert a small in each light chip which associates them with a IP address and actually makes them remotely controllable via any wireless network.

Working in partnership with partners such as NXP Semiconductors, GreenWave developed a series of chips and one intelligent lighting platform. In addition to research and development, Greg Memo has already started the production process, thanks to numerous partnerships with companies specializing in compact fluorescence and LEDs. The first specimens have already been officially presented.

The control platform accessible via the Internet in all its forms, mobile in the head. It not only manages lighting, but also able to read the gas and electricity consumption of the whole house (provided that the systems are based on smart meters), thus helping to monitor and possibly correct the use of daily electricity. A further step consistent with the underlying energy saving philosophy.

All this will cost, compact bulbs will cost no less than $ 20, making these lights not very competitive compared to the traditional fluorescent market, but certainly offering a interesting price / performance ratio compared to LEDs.

So if you are part of those who love the energy saving of light bulbs, but not as much the limited opportunity they offer to customize the atmosphere, a new experience ready to make the much talked-about Internet of Things real.

Starting from the beginning: from light.
