Kii has announced it has teamed up with Yankon Lighting to launch next-gen IoT smart lighting solutions for homes and offices. The smart lighting products, which can be accessed through a smartphone, have adopted an SoC solution provided by MediaTek. These products will meet consumer demand for a more low cost, comfortable, convenient, energy-efficient lighting system.

The smart lighting system incorporates multi-request demand capabilities like high brightness settings that feature low power consumption and timing control options that can help save manpower and power consumption.

Featuring a long product life, maintenance-free, the system has excellent waterproof and heat dissipation characteristics to hold up under any temperature, environment or climate, as well as remote control operations to support pre-turn on lighting and ensure power consumption with a turn-off function when a user is not home/in the office. Scene setting for full customisation of colour adjustments and brightness settings for different lighting effects is also included.

Kii is focused on addressing the high-performance demands of innovation in the connected world with an end-to-end cloud platform optimised for the IoT. Kii will provide smart lighting app solutions for Yankon’s app, allowing users to intelligently control lighting equipment on both Android and iOS devices.

"We are excited to work with Yankon, one of the biggest LED device companies in the world,” said Masanari Arai, CEO, Kii. “With Yankon’s planned production of over 80m units per year, we expect to have Kii enable up to 20% of these devices and we will look to increase that number as smart lighting becomes increasingly popular.”

“As the leading IoT Cloud Service provider, Kii is expanding in the IoT industry,” said Dominique Tu, CEO, Kii China. “Our collaboration with Yankon for smart lighting highlights an important step forward in IoT industry development. We hope to show consumers Kii’s advanced IoT technology through the smart lighting system’s launch.”

“Our prior development and production experience accumulated in LED lighting, has allowed us to stake our claim in the smart lighting space,” said Yong Guan, General Manager, Yankon Lighting. “Through our partnership with Kii, we have achieved intelligent lighting control to meet the energy-saving and convenience features which today’s consumers demand, while simultaneously improving the added value of LED lighting products.”
