    Components of a wireless Interact Office system


    Interact Office systems can host sensors to collect data about the illuminated environment: motion, light levels, occupancy, people counting, temperature, humidity, air quality, and more. Positioning and density of sensors depends on ceiling height, configuration of space, and other factors.

    Standard networking architecture

    Wireless gateways, deployed within a company’s standard IT infrastructure, communicate with connected devices via Zigbee. The system uses a bridge to connect with the Interact IoT platform in the cloud. Interact software applications offer Web-based system management, operations, and control.

    Wireless communications

    Compatible connected devices use wireless communications, based on the Zigbee 3.0 open standard, to participate in a mesh network. The networks is self-healing, so the system continues to operate even if an individual device fails.

    Open APIs

    Open, secure APIs accessible through the Web-based Interact Developer Portal allow system integrators and application developers to extend Interact with new capabilities, and to integrate Interact data and commands with other connected systems.

    Connected devices

    Interact Office works with a wide range of connected luminaires, lamps, and sensors from Philips and other participating brands.
