Zurich – The recently developed lamps from the CleanTech start-up LEDcity are able to communicate with each other. They detect when and where artificial lighting is required. In the future, they will also be able to autonomously order replacements and support security staff.



The Zurich-based CleanTech start-up LEDcity has further developed its smart lighting solutions with its new lamp by the name of Halbautonom+. The integrated light sensors allow the light intensity to be continuously adapted to requirements in the immediate area. This is made possible by the integration of a radar and light sensor as well as a radio module in each individual lamp. In this way, the lamps can communicate with each other, the start-up writes in a press release. According to information from the company itself, its system uses up to 90 percent less energy.

An app can be used to configure this lighting system, which has been optimized with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI). “The integration of the battery-free and wireless light switch in the lighting network enables us to switch between lighting scenarios and to override and dim the automatically suggested lighting level”, comments Samuel Stroppel from the Dübendorf-based facility service provider gammaRenax, before adding: “This expands the potential application areas in classrooms enormously”. Since November 2020, the conference rooms of the LEDcity customer have been lit by the Halbautonom+ lamp solution.

The start-up, which is headquartered in Technopark Zurich, is working on the further development of a fully automated solution, that would no longer require initial configuration, LEDcity explains in the press release. In the future, using the data they collect, these lamps will, for example, be able to autonomously order replacements when a lamp becomes faulty and even provide support to security staff.
