Pudong Software Park adopts smart lighting based on IoT

Smart lights help cut energy consumption by 70 percent

The Pudong Software Park in Zhangjiang today adopted smart lights based on Internet of Things technology — the first batch of smart lighting  for commercial use in the city.

The NB-IoT (narrow band-Internet of Things) lights, featuring new material, network connection and intelligent control system, helps to reduce energy consumption by 70 percent and saves about 130,000 yuan (US$20,000) for each light annually, compared with traditional lights, said the park operator.

The smart lights will be connected to the park’s camera monitoring, parking, elevator and other systems to improve efficiency and make the park a more intelligent industrial park.

The IoT refers to devices and even buildings that are networked with the Internet.

China’s IoT market is set to grow an average 13.3 percent a year to US$361 billion by 2020.
