Most connected lighting platforms in the Lighting 2.0 model consist of ‘add-ons’ to existing lighting systems thereby negating the benefits of fit for purpose design and the reliability, control and design options that can be achieved through integration.
Xicato believes that integrating communications, control, sensors, software and a light source into a single module will enable a ‘community’ of lights in and across spaces that can share information and inputs to respond to end user desires, environmental issues and can execute business rules to enhance commerce.
The union of software and hardware in a single package provides the greatest design freedom both aesthetically and from a system perspective.
XIM is Xicato’s Intelligent Module integrates communications, controls, sensors, software and a light source into one powerful light engine. Bringing the critical electronics together makes the system more reliable, easier to integrate and provides a foundation for exploring new business models based on lighting.
