Seeing the Light with Connected Emergency Luminaires

The sensors also can identify the location of the hazard so other lights are activated to direct occupants in the opposite direction, toward safety. At the same time, the sensors can provide information about room occupancy and building traffic; information that can be shared with first responders sent to deal with the emergency. The controlling console can be managed remotely via a web browser or even be transferred to an emergency response team.

Integrating next generation sensors within a retrofitted emergency lighting ecosystem is just one way of creating a smart emergency response system that improves building safety, while enhancing smart building automation.

Indeed, thanks to the latest advancements in connected emergency luminaires, emergency lighting – once just another building system that had to be tested and managed – now has the potential to become the foundation for building control and analytics, ushering a new era of building automation.
