The Philips connected lighting system at Waterpark Place integrates seamlessly with Cisco’s Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) IT architecture.
The connected luminaires are a portal to data, energy savings, sustainability, and personal comfort. They merge with the building’s IT network and are uniquely identified by IP address, allowing them to be individually monitored, managed, and controlled.
Each light point sends and receives data, allowing managers to track occupancy patterns, changes in temperature, and more while employees can personalise the lighting in their workspaces. Overall, the system offers maximum visibility and better control, and allows Cisco to reduce energy consumption in their office spaces.
With an expected annual energy savings of 177,000 kWh and an annual cost savings of $45,000, the system is set to provide payback within 3 years. The building has been recognised as the most innovative workplace by CoreNet, an event that awards and recognises real estate practices. Waterpark Place is just a glimpse into the kinds of office environments Philips and Cisco will bring to professional buildings around the world.
