Smart, connected lighting with integrated or associated sensors and controls can lower energycosts, but require lower costs of controls with easier configuration tools. Key enablers are software, services and interoperability which changes the way products are developed and sold. In stead of a transactional sale of a product, services like software updtes, security, license management, quality control on connected devices, network provisioning and data management need to be developed. These are massive challenges for the industry, but also a huge opportunity to add value.
