Offline Lighting Voice Controller — An Alternative to Voice Assistants

Offline Lighting Voice Controller — An Alternative to Voice Assistants

The historical evolution of light control by users started with a mechanical switch followed by potentiometer and dimming, touch panels and touch screens, gesture and movement detection control, and ending with voice. Voice control are mostly online speaker independent like Alexa, Google Home and Siri. But there are privacy and security concerns. Filip Michalski, Electronic Engineer, and Cezary Skotak, CEO, from Cezos describe a speaker independent offline voice controls system, explain the technology and discuss the pros and cons.

WHITE PAPER - Measuring Color Uniformity

WHITE PAPER - Measuring Color Uniformity

The color uniformity of light generated by LED luminaires plays a major role in many lighting applications. This makes it an important parameter to measure in both the R&D stage and during the quality assurance process. MKS Instruments has stayed abreast of this challenge by developing a new feature for its FluxGage photometrical system: the color uniformity measurement function. It allows quick evaluation of optical assemblies for color mixing and beam shaping. This whitepaper presents this novel feature of the system.
