Lighting the way to the IoT
A new partnership agreement has been signed between Gooee, the creator of the ‘Full Stack’ IoT platform to ‘connect’ lighting manufacturers to the Internet of Things, and luxury lighting specialist, John Cullen Lighting. Gooee will also be exhibiting at this year's LuxLive 2015 exhibition being held at ExCel London on 18th-19th November.
The agreement will enable John Cullen to take advantage of a new trend towards intelligent lighting solutions and integrate the latest smart IoT technology into its range of luxury lighting products. The company aims to have its first jointly developed smart interior lighting products with ‘Gooee Inside’ as early as in the second half of 2016.
Peter van der Kolk, CEO of John Cullen Lighting commented, “We are excited to be one of Gooee’s launching partners. Our 35 years of in-house lighting design and product design experience, coupled with the cutting edge technology that Gooee is bringing to the table, enables us to start working on the joint development of ultra-smart lighting products for the particular applications that bring the most value for our customers.
“John Cullen Lighting will be able to create high value service propositions combined with our exclusive quality and energy efficient lighting products,” van der Kolk continued.
Focused on design, engineering and supply of hardware, software and data management components across the LED lighting value chain, Gooee provides sensing, control and communication components that integrate with an enterprise scale cloud platform.
Jan Kemeling, Gooee’s Chief Commercial Officer, claimed that Gooee is the first truly independent, openly accessible, interoperable solution for Lighting OEMs and is similarly excited by the agreement, “At Gooee, we are dedicated to developing and integrating truly innovative technologies that exceed the market’s expectations. That means creating high performance smart components and software solutions that present no surprises, no disappointments, no compromises.”
Kemeling added that not only will these ‘Gooee inside’ products be individually controllable, but they will also become ‘conscious’ of the environment in which they are deployed, “This creates far reaching possibilities for the monitoring of product performance and energy usage, and for interaction with other devices in (or outside of) the space such as air conditioners, heaters, smart phones of shoppers and more.”
