Climate change is threatening not only our way of living, it is threatening our existence. It has already made a saddening amount of species on our planet extinct. Only arrogance could make us think we are any different from other animals if the planet turns against us – or if we turn the planet against ourselves.
After thousands of years of the sun and fire providing light for people, in the last 140 years we have experienced a revolution in lighting. In the beginning there was the incandescent lamp, it turned on, it turned off and it consumed a lot of power. Then came compact fluorescent energy saving lamps offering massive energy savings. Today, it is LED lighting that is at the forefront of lighting technology and the digitalisation it has enabled. Smart lighting is offering building owners and facility managers the platform to really understand how a building is used and provide the ideal platform for human-centric lighting and offering a WELL Building Standard compliant work environment.
As the follow up to our press release with Silicon Labs, in which we released concurrent Wirepas Mesh and Bluetooth multiprotocol , I started a blog series by writing about multiprotocol in general and benefits of using more than one protocol to create better products to tackle some of the challenges in the market that IoT is said to solve. In this second part, I will focus on what combining Wirepas Mesh and Bluetooth could solve, and how the concurrent multiprotocol can also benefit the device manufacturers, when they are looking to address these use cases.
