Osram Smart Light Explores Lighting Options

With Lightify, Osram for the first time presents a lighting system at Light+Building 2014 that enables users to exploit a wide range of lighting possibilities using an app on a smartphone or tablet. Lightify simply integrates into existing WLAN networks, and users are able to set a wide diversity of light atmospheres. "Connected light is yet another important step for us towards the digital light era. With Lightify we have transformed an idea into an innovation that contains almost everything that light is able to do today" said Peter Laier, Osram's Chief Technology Officer and executive board member responsible for the company's general illumination business. Lightify will be available from the start of the coming lighting season in Germany and other European markets.

Lightify enables living rooms and workrooms as well as balconies and gardens to be bathed in a wide variety of light atmospheres using a smartphone or tablet. The scenes can be freely configured and also controlled while on the move. In addition, the app also provides programmed light scenes such as a realistic sunrise for example, and selection can also be based on photos. Lightify is not only able to design rooms in light differently each day, the light itself can also be useful for the sense of well-being. The right scene helps people to get out of bed better in the morning and to sleep more easily in the evening.

On vacation trips, users at home can flexibly create dynamic light profiles before or while away using the absence mode, which can offer greater protection from burglars when compared to standard time clocks.

Lightify can be simply integrated into the existing WLAN network and Lightify components interconnect automatically. The complete Lightify range of LED lamps and luminaires can be controlled independent of the location, whether this is for corridors or living rooms, terraces and gardens or professional lighting in offices. Osram with its Lightify system is following an integrative approach and provides corresponding products from a single source. Installed lighting systems and products from other manufacturers that support the common ZigBee Light Link standard or Home Automation standard can also be simply integrated into the system. In addition, the lightify system offers an interface for the so called DALI standard. DALI is widely used in professional applications in Europe.

Lightify should be available from the coming light season onwards in a version for end consumers and a second version for professional users, and the starter kit for end customers consists of the gateway and a lamp. The app is free and available from various app stores.

Osram is showing at Light+Building in Hall 2 (“Alte Festhalle”) and looks forward to your visit.
