Illuminotronica 2016: LED Lighting, Smart Technologies and Customized Solutions to Achieve Wellbeing, Safety and Energy Savings

Milan, March 5 - Smart lighting, Li-Fi, OLED, Internet of Things, Solid State Lighting. All these words are related to innovation and new technologies which are changing - after the introduction of LEDs in lighting sector - our way of thinking light in different scenarios. Not to mention the high performance and lower costs that make LED a pervasive technology, with growth peaks in all applications.

New technologies and electronics for lighting applications (sensors, drivers, wireless devices, thermal management, etc.) represent the core of Illuminotronica 2016, a unique professional meeting in Italy dedicated to lighting in all its aspects.

Held from 6th to 8th October in Padua, Illuminotronica is a privileged point of view dedicated to all those who install, design or apply technologies, systems, products for smart lighting integrated with security and home automation systems. The event is promoted by Assodel (Italian Association of Electronics Clusters) and represents an important occasion of discussion between technicians and professionals, as well as an opportunity for updating on technological developments, market trends and new business opportunities.

First of all, the smart home

Our houses are subject to continuous changes, mostly related to the adoption of new technological devices and smart solutions that can cut energy consumption, optimize the control and management and improve the quality of our lives.

The smart home market is driven by different aspects, such as the European regulations on energy efficiency, the Italian tax recovery policies and the development of increasingly affordable and reliable technologies.

Illuminotronica 2016 especially focuses on smart home as the result of home automation, smart lighting and security integration, to meet people well-being and security needs.
