    How Interact works

    Hardware + software + services = light and insight

    Think of an Interact system like a smart, responsive computer network that gives light.In general, an Interact connected lighting system consists of three main levels or layers: hardware installed in the illuminated space, software accessible via the cloud, and optional services from Signify.

    An Interact system uses both lighting hardware and networking hardware. In illuminated spaces, connected LED luminaires from Philips or Color Kinetics deliver light, while sensors of various kinds collect data from the illuminated environment. Bluetooth and Wi-Fi beacons offer wireless connectivity for lighting control via mobile devices. Behind the scenes, lighting controllers and standard networking devices afford connectivity and integration.

Collected data is stored in the cloud, along with analysis and visualization tools for turning data into insight.
