New lighting solutions based on Bluetooth Mesh networks can provide a new infrastructure for IoT applications. They enable integration and visualisation of different sensor data thus providing much deeper insight into building parameters. These solutions can be easily controlled and configured via mobile phones and tablets making them very intuitive to use. In addition, the possibility to use energy harvesting switches and sensors combines maintenance-free operation with free positioning and easy upgrades. With this, lighting is poised to take yet another technology leap forward.
