Digitalization, intelligent lighting systems, IoT, data streams, and smart programs are buzzwords everybody is talking about. However, what does digitalization mean in practical terms? Where and how do we apply digitalization, and how does it benefit our customers? Below, we present five examples from our extensive experience to shed light on these questions.

Moving light 

naturally smart

The networking of luminaires and digital control results in intelligent lighting systems that prioritize the needs of users and the environment alike. A good example is the high-speed cycle path between Stuttgart and Böblingen/Sindelfingen, stretching approximately eight kilometers through a forest. Here, we have installed an insect and environmentally friendly solution that minimizes artificial light at night. Through radio-connected luminaires forming an intelligent network, we have set up a smart "tracking light" function. The idea is simple: as cyclists enter the sensor detection range, they are guided safely through the forest by a light corridor. When there is no cycling traffic, the lighting automatically switches off after a brief period, creating a win-win situation for the environment and the budget. 

Digital Services 

harnessing the power of data

Within a lighting network, vast amounts of data are generated every second, from the luminaires’ operating data to the sensors’ control commands. Digital services like „Light Monitoring“ or "Energy Monitoring" leverage this data for increased efficiency, transparency, and sustainability. We have implemented several projects for the Raben Group in Poland using our E-Line Next LED continuous-row LED system, LiveLink Premium lighting management system and the "Light Monitoring" digital cloud service. The operating data of each light point is analyzed in real-time, and clever analysis functions make it possible to identify potential optimizations and implement features such as predictive maintenance.

Generating added value 

transparency at Kuehne + Nagel

Data from the lighting network can also be strategically used beyond the realm of lighting to increase transparency and safety. At the Kühne + Nagel site in Obergeorgswerder, 7.5 km of sensor-controlled E-Line Next LED strip lighting provides excellent and efficient light. A smart bonus is the capability to display the switching frequency of sensors in the cloud as a graphical frequency distribution on a building plan. This simple "heat map" provides valuable insights into the use of the areas and helps to identify and eliminate hotspots and danger zones.

LiveLink ONE 

How lighting management software works

Efficiently and securely implementing the installation and commissioning of a lighting network while preserving the freedom for individual configuration is now simplified with our innovative LiveLink ONE® app. It identifies networked luminaires, push-buttons, and sensors, providing a functional basic configuration without compromising individual customization options. The app, available since August 2023, ensures that functionality remains intact even during adaptations for specific projects. Furthermore, in February and March 2024, the software's capabilities will be expanded through two releases, introducing features for creating building structures and importing building plans in DXF format.


our digital heart

TRILUX ONE is our digital platform for communication and collaboration with customers and partners. Users can access all relevant product data and all communications with TRILUX via their account. They can plan projects collaboratively, process orders and complaints, and use smart tools, videos, background information and much more. The response from the market has been positive, with over 12,000 people registered since the launch. We are continuously working on new functions and services for even greater user convenience. Starting in spring 2024, users will be able to start the LiveLink ONE light management app directly via their TRILUX ONE account, enabling quick and easy firmware updates.
