The term “smart lightning” is widely known nowadays, though the history of the technology dates back to the late 90’s. The first solutions were quite primitive. About 20 years ago light timers connected to outdoor lamps started to be used to turn them on and off at certain times, and this solution might have been called “smart”. 5 years later, with the introduction of motion sensors, lighting systems became more complex and evolved. Half a decade later, motion sensors have combined with daylight sensors to switch the light on only when it is dark.
In Part 1, we covered the history of smart lighting technologies and key milestones in the industry. Today we are going to focus on the advantages of LED, which led to explosive growth in the smart lighting ecosystem, and also take a sneak peek into the future.
If you want to keep in touch with the newest trends in embedded systems, Nuremberg Embedded World is the right place for you. In order to heighten your expectations, we want to share our impressions on the latest event.

Every year we make our way to CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas for the annual consumer electronics exhibition. Imagine over 4,500 vendors presenting new ideas and technological developments spread across an entire week — it really does give a whole new meaning to the city of lights. CES presents a great opportunity to meet like-minded individuals in similar fields, or different, helping catch new ideas, contacts, and ideas – it’s wonderful here.
A bit of history — the creation of Zigbee standard required a lot of effort, time and knowledge to construct. Dotdot is an alias for ZCLIP, which stands for Zigbee Cluster Library (ZCL) over IP. It is about exposing ZCL functionality to the IP world, in contrast to classic Zigbee that is always isolated from IP networks and requires a Zigbee gateway to connect Zigbee mesh with the outer world. This would become a bridge between IoT and other networks. Different manufacturers have Zigbee Gateway solutions mostly for connectivity of Zigbee network with cloud.
Every year CES is the culmination of the latest and greatest in technology and invention. From TVs to cars, cellphones to virtual reality, industrial grade hardware to watches and players, everything is competing for consumer attention and it’s barely possible for a person to see everything displayed. CES 2016 was all about TVs, virtual reality and drones. 2017, while still following last year’s trend, moved towards the Smart Home, Smart Appliances, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). The entire IoT industry was there: starting from end-to-end solutions to wireless connectivity chips and platforms. This includes the well-positioned ZigBee Alliance booth, which included the products showcase powered by DSR with an impressive 105 products from 30+ companies for both Residential and Commercial markets.
Another CES has come and gone. The wheels have touched down, and you are likely back home. You and your team have refueled with a few well deserved, solid nights of sleep and it’s now time to reflect on what made CES 2016’ special. Let’s highlight one of the exciting moments; the ZigBee Alliance announcement of ZigBee 3.0.
Interoperability is a buzzword that we hear often when talking about wireless protocols, including ZigBee. Being an already trusted but still young standard, ZigBee itself can raise many questions when reading the official documentation. However, that is not the topic of this blog. With over a decade of experience in wireless communications software development and 7 years working closely with ZigBee, we have seen many cases where although the specification gives adequate description, developers invent their own bicycle. Our extensive experience integrating and working with a large number of sensors from different manufacturers provided us the valuable insight we are sharing in this blog.
DSR has been a regular attendee and a recent exhibitor at CES. Every year there is a little bit of a familiar and a lot of new.
