Alongside 1300+ Philips Maxos Fusion luminaires, Signify installed Interact Industry: a connected lighting system that — complete with software applications — helps the team to manage lighting and operations throughout the warehouse.
Thanks to smart lighting, Pilkington Automotive can use gathered data to distribute the workload evenly. For example, they can now observe exactly which areas receive the most frequent use. They can access this data through an easy-to-use, intuitive dashboard, providing insights into lighting usage and even allowing Pilkington Automotive to optimize lighting operations remotely.
Alongside improving operations, Interact Industry enables the warehouse to increase its energy efficiency. The system is configured so that lights are only switched on when really necessary in consideration of all legal requirements and the safety of Pilkington’s employees. This can be achieved by adapting the lighting to demand, using daylight harvesting and presence sensors. This means as well as saving up to 50% of energy, compared to sites where conventional lighting is used, the carbon footprint at Pilkington Automotive can be reduced by 290 tonnes of CO² each year too.
