Sylvania launches new generation of Sylsmart connected building

Building owners and operators have appreciated the aesthetic benefits of lighting control and its potential for saving energy. However, take-up has been hindered by retrofit difficulties which made investment necessary, a surge of occupant discomfort affecting productivity, and further integration issues when building management systems were planned without equipment. However, as the latest generation of SylSmart connected building from Sylvania addresses these challenges and offers lighting control for new-build and retrofit applications that truly delivers on the promise of a ‘smart’ lighting solution.

At a time when the world is beset by challenges, new working practices which are emerging demand companies adapt to a new normal. Considering this, new lighting products must demonstrate their energy saving credentials. SylSmart Connected Building stands out in both counts.

Pierre Taing, Director Smart & Beyond Lighting for Sylvania explains: “The new generation of SylSmart Connected Building is our most advanced smart lighting solution for professional in-office applications, and offers significant benefits through its feature-rich design, maximising both occupant comfort and energy efficiency. The use of Qualified Bluetooth mesh matches perfectly with Sylvania’s ambitions to provide a sustainable and secure ecosystem to support buildings becoming smarter and setting the foundation of an exciting future for smart lighting.”

SylSmart Connected Building is a smart lighting solution for retrofit within indoor commercial applications. Its simplicity of design, ease of use and clear payback make it the ideal choice for stakeholders including building owners, facilities, and energy managers, as well as installers.

SylSmart Connected Building has no central controller, operating in a decentralised way, avoiding a local problem causes a complete system shutdown.

The new generation of SylSmart Connected Building uses Qualified Bluetooth mesh and smart sensors within Sylvania luminaires. This solution is ideally suited for control, monitoring, and automation systems where tens, hundreds, or thousands of devices need to communicate with one another reliably and securely. Sylvania is working on this initiative with Technology Partner Silvair, a leading contributor to the development of the Bluetooth mesh standard.

Retrofit of SylSmart Connected Building luminaires is simple – no additional wiring is required just a simple swap-out. Traditional luminaires can be easily replaced with highly efficient, controlled, SylSmart-enabled fixture. Each luminaire contains a motion sensor providing precise control and optimum comfort to occupants. The SylSmart Connected Building system also provides maximum flexibility if the layout and demands of the office space is changed. Digital floor plans and configurations can be created off-site via a web-based platform. On-site implementation is accelerated with an intuitive mobile app, minimising disruption, and ensuring the security and reliability of the system. This easy to use app also supports regular on-going maintenance with no in-depth training required.
