How will the future of the lighting industry under the Internet develop?
What is the future of smart world? Baidu CEO Li Yanhong said that in the future all manufacturing industries belong to the artificial intelligence industry, or the Internet of Things industry. All products must be able to be networked, and they must be able to pass data back to the cloud. These technologies must be analyzed through artificial intelligence technology to bring tangible value to consumers. Indeed, these are not imaginations and have gradually become reality. With the continuous development of technologies such as mobile internet, Internet of Things, big data and cloud computing, the lighting industry is constantly changing. In addition to lighting, light has more possibilities, just like the advertising language of Philips Lighting. Light, beyond sight." The Internet era has brought opportunities to lighting companies, and it has also brought enormous challenges. New competitors are constantly pouring in, the industry competition pattern has changed, and where is the future industry? In the 2017 Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition Forum, the leader from the industry The company gave the answer. Huawei: Embracing the Internet of Things, Accelerating the Lighting Revolution Dr. Zhou Wei, chief technology officer of Huawei's network product line, proposed at the forum that global lighting consumes 19% of electricity, which puts tremendous pressure on energy. Only by embracing the Internet of Things can the lighting revolution be accelerated. Huawei has built a set of urban lighting solutions, and has developed multi-layer intelligent lighting control, which can achieve energy saving of more than 80%. Through visual management and active maintenance, it can reduce maintenance costs by 90%. The streetlight is used as the carrier to build an open smart city platform, and the full coverage of sensor monitoring is realized through the sensor interconnection. At the same time, Huawei's open laboratories have been built around the world in Suzhou, Munich, London, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Paris to establish an agile IoT ecosystem and promote industrial digital transformation. Philips Lighting: Let light exceed what you see As an advocate of smart connected lighting, how does Philips Lighting do? Shen Xiaohui, General Manager of the Marketing Department of Philips Lighting Greater China, described the vision of Philips Lighting's next decade in the forum: The first is to have the right light, through the light effect, Dynamic, interactive, and responsive, the light is more in line with the characteristics of the city; the second is the combination of intelligent interconnection and information technology to create new possibilities; the third is to promote new applications and integrate the lighting system into the technological ecosystem of urban management. In the 2030 concept of Philips Lighting, 100 super cities will be born in the world, intelligent connected lighting can support a variety of municipal services, city navigation based on status services, robots and drones can achieve lighting navigation, urban space transformation Smart home devices are fully interconnected for vertical farms, vertical farms that rely on light to reduce water and pesticide dependence. Op Lighting: Creating new value Qi Xiaoming, director and deputy general manager and chief technology officer of Op Lighting, put forward the thinking of the new value of lighting in the post-LED era at the forum. He believes that the lighting industry has changed from performance-price-price-to-value creation. Op has been thinking about how to bring a better lighting experience to consumers, and puts into technological innovation to integrate cutting-edge technology concepts into products. For the future development of Op, Qi Xiaoming proposed three aspects: The first is that the digital revolution has arrived. With the advancement of smart homes, smart buildings and smart cities, the global smart market competition will undergo a major transformation. The Internet of Things market has a huge market prospect. This is the main field that Opto will build in the future. . The second is to pay more attention to lighting design and create value through design. Comfortable lighting needs people-oriented, not only light efficiency and cost, but also direct expression of vision, physiology and emotion. It is necessary to consider the various elements of lighting. The third is product innovation. In the future, it will be the entry of the strong, the competition of the pattern, the competition of technology and talents, all of which require core innovation and micro-innovation.
In the second half of 2017, where should LED lighting companies go?
The lighting industry will develop in the direction of intensification and branding In the first half of this year, in terms of channels, Haier's small butler's intelligent lighting continued to strengthen the construction of offline storefronts, opened more than 200 new outlets, and established storefront support through “products, construction, marketing, training” and other aspects. In terms of products, in terms of products, Xiao Guanjia adheres to the strategy of “no interaction and no product”. Through continuous interaction with users, iteratively upgrades the version 2.0 of intelligent lighting to achieve multi-lamp linkage and provide users with better lighting solutions. At present, in the home appliance industry, “Internet of Things” has become the mainstream trend. Intelligent lighting will become an important “smart connector” for home appliance Internet of Things. In the future, smart lighting will create a smart home life scene with smart appliances. Therefore, I believe that smart lighting will be the future development trend. At present, intelligent lighting has problems such as inconsistent industry standards and unclear intelligent positioning. Real intelligent lighting is not simply using mobile phones to remotely control this form, but “light moving with people”, without complicated operations, lighting will be based on life scenes. Automatic dimming. For the “2016 Top 100 List” released recently, I believe that the quality and scale of the short-listed companies have increased significantly, and the LED lighting industry is still in a period of rapid rise. Through the “Top 100 List”, we can see that the lighting industry is moving towards a user-centered brand and intelligent direction. In the future, the lighting industry will certainly develop in the direction of intensification and branding, just like the home appliance industry. Through the “Top 100 List”, we can also see that the overall development trend of the LED lighting industry is improving, and in the next few years, many enterprises will expand into a “geometric level”.
Downlights and spotlights, what is the difference between the two?
When it comes to downlights and spotlights, these are the top leaders in the lighting design of modern home improvement, especially spotlights, which are often seen in museums, exhibition halls and other places. For beginners, their similarities are easily confused. What is the difference between the two? If the light looks from the outside, it is really difficult to distinguish the difference between the two, first of all have to start from their respective characteristics. Downlight In commercial lighting and home lighting, it provides mainly functional, basic lighting that is uniform, comfortable and soft. When lighting, consider the spacing of the lamps, the illumination and uniformity of the ground, and the matching of the lamps themselves with the ceiling. It is more suitable for local medium-intensity lighting and auxiliary lighting, such as dining tables and bars. Spotlight Often used for accent lighting, to illuminate objects that are to be highlighted. For example, goods, decorative paintings, handicrafts, etc., can produce clean, clear spots, highlighting objects to enhance the effect. The general spotlight volume is smaller than the downlight. In addition, the two lights can be distinguished by use, beam, source and characteristics. General lighting vs accent lighting Downlight: The light is soft and comfortable. It is generally used for general lighting or auxiliary lighting. It can form floodlight in a certain space and evenly illuminate the entire space. Spotlight: Manufacture of atmosphere lights, generally used for accent lighting or decorative lighting. Focusing on the illuminated objects, such as TV walls, hanging pictures, showcases, etc., through small angles of glare, can better represent the color and texture of objects. Enhance the beauty and enhance the contrast between space and darkness. For lamps of the same power, the larger the beam angle, the smaller the center intensity and the softer the spot. Conversely, the smaller the beam angle, the greater the central intensity, and the harder the resulting spot. Unadjustable vs adjustable The direction of the light source of the downlight is generally not adjustable and can only be fixed in one direction, which can evenly illuminate the entire space. The direction of the light source of the spotlight is generally variable, and the illumination angle can be freely adjusted according to the demand, with emphasis on illumination and highlighting the local part.
Intelligent lighting enters high-speed development, industrial and commercial is the largest application scenario
In the past few years, smart lighting has been “small and thundering” and has not really spread. By 2017, this situation has undergone a significant change, and intelligent lighting is no longer "not warm" and enters a stage of rapid development. According to the latest data from the LED Research Center (LEDinside), the global smart lighting market in 2017 is close to US$4.6 billion, with a year-on-year growth rate of 95% and is expected to reach US$13.4 billion in 2020. In recent years, with the maturity of technology, product maturity and related concepts, smart lighting applications have become increasingly rich, covering commercial/industrial lighting, outdoor lighting, residential lighting and public lighting.
