Wireless lighting control system will involve each lighting fixture being wireless enabled
The move to LED technology will require a redesign of a lighting fixture, says Stephen Page, VP of Engineerig at Cyan Technology in Cambridge. At this redesign stage, for a very small incremental cost it is also possible to add wireless control to a lighting fixture, making home automation much more feaible.
Production ready wireless modules, design-in guides, and reference design lighting interface boards make this a straight forward process. Each light will then become a node on an ISM band mesh network. This is used because it is robust (self-healing) and easy to deploy (self-forming).
