Connected Living Embodied by Smart Lighting at Autumn Lighting Fair

An independent survey conducted in April during the Hong Kong International Lighting Fair (Spring Edition) this year showed 89% of respondents considered the outlook for smart lighting to be promising. Particularly, smart lighting systems that are designed for home automation, of all the applications, were expected to have the greatest growth potential in the coming two years.HKTDC 2 400

This notable trend has been fuelled by the rise of IoT(Internet of Things)-enabled lighting fixtures and connected technology that helps connect various lighting and home devices at a single platform to create a truly “connected living”. In response to this burgeoning business area, the “Smart Home Gallery” has been expanded and upgraded to become the zone of “Connected Living Smart Home” at Autumn Lighting Fair this year. Embracing and embodying futuristic living with smart lighting applications, this newly evolved zone will feature the latest smart home lighting products from such renowned global brands as Tuya, Tmall Genie AI Union Partner Jingxun Software and Bright Power Semiconductor, Strategic Partner of Baidu Intelligent Cloud-Broadlink, Opple, Panasonic and Philips.

The reputed Hall of Aurora, where creativity meets with high performance, is set to return to see the crème de la crème of the lighting world, as exemplified in the latest designs of such top global lighting brands as BJB, MEGAMAN, , Samsung, LEDUS, and WIZ. Also coming back is the Residential Lighting zone, which will gather worldwide functional and decorative domestic lighting products for a lighting glamour extravaganza.

The LED Lighting zone, which houses products that drive most of the innovations in the lighting industry, will continue to exhibit some of the most exciting and hottest LED lighting products on the market; whereas the Smart Lighting & Solutions zone will display the latest smart lighting designs, software, management systems and control panels.
