Marking its one-year anniversary, the IoT-Ready AllianceTM introduces its first specification, The IoT-Ready™ Interface Specification V1.0. The Specification defines a socket that allows any type of Internet of Things (IoT) sensor or control module to connect seamlessly to a luminaire or other building system. The standard is network-protocol independent, which enables IoT-Ready™-compliant products to utilise any networking protocol, either wired or wireless and is suitable for all LED lighting and building control networks. 

Enlighted CEO Joe Costello said, "The Interface Specification is a very important first step by the IoT-Ready Alliance to make the installation of IoT technology in luminaires easy today, and in the future. We are announcing our 5thgeneration sensor at Lightfair International and it will be IoT-Ready Interface Specification compliant. We are also committed to ensuring all future sensors meet IoT-Ready standards. We look forward to collaborating with the member companies to develop new technologies to speed the adoption of LED lighting and enable smarter buildings."

Key Benefits of Adopting the IoT-ReadyTM Standard

  • Specifies all interface elements: mechanical, electrical and software
  • Provides a complete family of interoperable solutions to Smart Building IoT interface problems
  • Allows in-field retrofit, replacements and upgrades without disassembly
  • Specification is developed under a Royalty-free license
  • Works with any network protocol including Thread, BLE, ZigBee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, IP/Ethernet etc.
  • Is backwards compatible with legacy lighting controls
  • Can be implemented with traditional lighting controls until IoT is needed
  • Provides a low-cost option to future-proof luminaires or other system components in buildings
  • Suitable for a range of applications, from simple low-cost lighting control to high-end IoT sensing
