Intelligent lighting system using wireless Zigbee, WiFi, GPRS and other Internet of Things and IT technology, to achieve a remote single light switch, dimming, detection and other control functions, opening up a new chapter of modern urban lighting “management of energy saving”. Intelligent lighting to its environmental protection and energy saving deep into the hearts of people, gradually accepted and recognized by the general public, however, people”s vision of a smart city to accelerate, intelligent lighting carries a heavy responsibility, will be pushed to a new level. Intelligent LED bulb lamp as the main force of intelligent lighting, it may be worthwhile to analyze its characteristics and the impact it brings to our lives in depth.
First, the current situation and future development of intelligent LED bulb lights
The revolutionary significance of smart LED bulbs
Smart LED bulb lamp is a new concept of LED dimming bulb lamp products produced by the collision of smart home and LED lighting. In the rapid development of LED products in the past few years, there is no doubt that the future of indoor lighting culture will be led by LED lighting design, and at the same time towards the embodiment of humane, energy-saving health and artistic personalization to the direction of development. And the ubiquitous Wifi (Internet) its interoperable and interactive features at any time and anywhere will certainly also affect the development of LED lighting products and changes. Intelligent bulb using embedded Internet of Things core technology, the interoperable core module embedded in the LED bulb, the interactive service software system implanted in the cell phone, into the life of living, relying on cloud technology service platform support, constitutes a handshake and link between indoor lighting and electronic devices, full of wisdom and social intelligent LED bulb system, has become a dark horse in the field of intelligent lighting and even LED lighting, it has It is not the traditional simple sense of the living room lighting, in the light of each person”s life at the same time, but also represents the unique attitude of each person”s life, which is bound to be the history of LED lighting development and the history of smart home development of a change that can not be ignored.
Smart LED bulb lamp energy-saving health and environmental protection
LED belongs to the cold light source, is considered the fourth generation of green light source, in a fundamental sense semiconductor lighting itself without any pollution to the environment, in the same brightness, LED bulb lamp power consumption is only 1/10 of ordinary incandescent lamps, fluorescent tubes 1/2, compared with incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps, power saving efficiency can reach more than 90%. LED bulbs replace 50% of the current traditional lighting, each year The electricity saved in China is equivalent to the sum of the power generated by a Three Gorges power station, and its energy-saving benefits are very considerable.
Defects of intelligent LED bulbs
Smart bulb lamp is the hottest kind of smart home product right now, and it is also the entry-level smart home product that many families will choose. The developer”s original intention is obvious: to use the cell phone to control the light switch, in addition to color mixing, and even with other products such as audio systems to achieve linked operation.
Integration of the Internet
Intelligent LED bulb lamp into the embedded Internet of Things communication module, can realize in a certain area of the Internet access, while the user will be connected to the smart phone and cloud services platform, so that users at any place at any time through the cell phone to view the home LED bulb lamp working status, including brightness, color temperature, and electrical parameters, but also through the smart phone or connected to the computer according to Another aspect for the installation of multiple groups of smart bulbs in the room, smart bulbs in normal operation can dynamically scan the other smart bulbs, and automatically achieve self-group network control, so that users can define their own lighting scenes of the room scene, the user can even use cell phones or digital cameras to take photos of the color Users can even set the colors from photos taken with their mobile phones or digital cameras to the intelligent lighting devices in the room, for example, to simulate the lighting environment at sunrise and sunset.
Smart LED bulb is a kind of personalized product that users can show their own preferences, and through the cloud platform and embedded IoT module, users can make their own power saving programs and color schemes, etc. released to microblogs, WeChat and other social platforms, in the sharing of their own programs at the same time can also be informed of other people”s programs, to achieve a certain degree of social interaction.
Environmental protection, harmony, green, energy saving is the leading direction of this century and even the future. The introduction of intelligent bulbs is like a key to open the door to deepen the relationship between humans and light, overturning the traditional understanding of human lighting, lighting the room is not the only function of lighting equipment, the user to achieve personalized program deployment, according to their own preferences set lighting changes, according to the context of adjusting the color temperature of the light, according to life and work set the stage of light changes in energy-saving programs, according to their own needs According to their own needs to call out their own health lighting system, so as to achieve and environmental protection, harmony, green, energy-saving world main theme of the convergence.
Second, the market direction of intelligent LED bulb lights and applications
The market direction of intelligent LED bulbs
Smart bulb era people can set their favorite scenario lighting effect according to their individual lighting needs (such as color, temperature, brightness and direction, etc.), convenient smart phones also provide a more humane intelligent control channels to create different indoor intelligent lighting effects. From then on, people can choose and control the light brightness, grayscale, color changes in different spaces and times according to their respective requirements, scenario situations, and different understanding of the environment and life, simulating a variety of light environments to guide and improve emotions, reflecting a more humane lighting environment, while interactive social sharing of electricity, scenario programs also fit the inner needs of human social, will certainly promote energy-saving light bulbs Intelligent pace.
Application of intelligent LED bulb lamp
Home environment: living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom
Office environment: computer room, conference room, smoking area, basement, office
Commercial entertainment: fast food stores, supermarkets, shopping malls, restaurants, cafes, steam rooms, tea houses
Public facilities: schools, hospitals, basements
Dependence on the “intelligence” of electronic devices
But developers overlooked the point that the rich feature selection of smart bulbs is completely dependent on cell phone and tablet applications. In other words, excluding the rich features, even the basic action of switching the lights need to be completed through the phone or tablet, a new problem arises: if your electronic device is in a dead state, you want to turn on the lights must first charge the phone; if your phone is not around, you want to turn on the lights, first find the phone.
The control scheme outside the cell phone tablet is not yet mature
Some developers may be aware of such a problem in the design process, in the development of a new generation of smart bulb lights at the same time also launched an additional intelligent wireless control panel. The original need is an ordinary switch panel, now replaced by a 10 times more expensive smart switch panel, in the already quite expensive smart bulb lights added a cost, so more consumers discouraged, which may also be one of the reasons why the current smart bulb lights did not go into the home on a large scale. Some people propose to add a sound control module in the smart bulb lamp, but the sensitivity of the sound control module and high damage rate, and the same not expensive, perhaps we need to look forward to a better solution.
Smart home products are just in a start-up phase, LED industry has developed rapidly in the past few years, but also did not develop a mandatory standard, smart bulb lights naturally no standards to speak of in all aspects. And most developers work individually, currently only consider the interconnection compatibility between their own products, or to their own products to establish an independent platform, which also causes some devices in the linkage will produce obstacles. For example, you buy A”s smart bulb, it may be a conflict with B”s smart speaker system. There is no unified platform and standard, which may be another reason why smart bulbs are not popular, but at the same time this also gives the wireless space for the development of smart bulbs. Maybe in a few years, when the smart home products mature, there will be big developers, operators can provide a unified linkage platform for everyone to use under a standard customized by the state, to solve this embarrassing situation today.
Obviously, people”s pursuit of “intelligence” is never-ending, but the current intelligent lighting products are not perfect. Although in a short time we can not expect to have AI, can think like humans and learning lighting products, but better control, more practical functions, effective linkage mechanism and higher security, are the manufacturers can work hard direction. In short, intelligent lighting products should not pursue empty, gimmicky “high”, only from the basic experience to gradually improve, and then provide a human-centered application form, will bring the real “intelligent experience”.
