Intelligent lighting management and digital services via networked luminaires

Luminaires equipped with sensors provide valuable information that can not only be used to implement new business models such as Pay Per Use, but also provide digital value-added services for end customers.


The times in which luminaires only provide light are over in the age of digitization. The Internet of Things enables conventional LED luminaires to do more than just the classic functions. As part of concepts such as smart building, the lighting infrastructure is also networked and thus “smart”. Such a project enables TRILUX to offer additional digital services to its customers based on its intelligent lighting systems. In close cooperation with the luminaire manufacturer, com2m has developed an IoT cloud solution for future-oriented digital services. This makes TRILUX GmbH & Co. KG in Arnsberg in the Sauerland region a pioneer and driver of digitization in its industry segment.

The highlights of the project

Predictive maintenance and digital energy monitoring

The central IoT solution permanently records and evaluates data on the networked luminaires. This enables predictive maintenance and intelligent light management.

Development of new business models

The available data enables TRILUX to build new business models. In this way, full-service and pay-per-use offers could be created that build on the data and the associated permanent monitoring of the condition of a lighting infrastructure as a basis.

Expansion of the portfolio with digital services

Due to the growing digitalization, Trilux is creating new, paid services outside the pure lighting segment. These include, for example, services in the field of indoor navigation, room booking services or the automated checking of emergency lighting.
