In 2016, total global energy came from 80% of fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, and petroleum). The main fossil fuel being used is natural gas (32%), coal (30%), and petroleum (1%). Processing all three forms have numerous damaging environmental impacts, such as air and water pollution, soil contamination, etc. 6% of greenhouse emissions in the world derive from energy used for lighting. Globally, 19% of electricity use is for commercial and residential lighting. With new smart lighting, residential energy use will decline by more than 50% in the range of 1,000 kW hours per household per year from 2012 to 2040. A typical lamp using a traditional light bulb consumes 60 watts of power, and a compact fluorescent lamp emits the same amount of light while using only 13 watts. [1,2]
However, smart lighting using light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs consumes only 10 watts to give off the same amount of light. Besides conserving energy, smart lighting systems enabled with the Internet of things (IoT) technology can save people money by allowing them to remotely control their lighting, which lowers their energy use and saves them money. According to a report, new lighting technologies can reduce lighting energy by up to 75%. Also, by using LED lights, which are more energy-efficient and last up to 10 years, smart home lighting systems lower energy bills over time. 
Smart Lighting Systems Technology
To design a smart lighting system, several products need to be purchased and installed. The first step is to install smart bulbs or wall plugins. The next step is to install smart sensors and integrate them with the technology used for the bulbs or plugins with an operating system. The related app needs to be downloaded to a smart device to operate the system. Below are more details about the technology that’s needed for setting up a new smart lighting system:
Syrma: India’s Green Manufacturer
Our team cares about protecting our natural environment and resources. Over the years, we’ve designed and manufactured many eco-friendly products, such as energy-saving lighting systems. For example, we recently built smart lights for a company that allows consumers to operate their lights, such as turning them off remotely or dimming them, via a mobile app. We also worked with another company to build IoT lighting products for smart cities, which can be used for other applications, like traffic monitoring.
We’re excited to be manufacturing eco-friendly products, as well as for being certified as a Green-Rated Supplier on sustainability by one of our primary clients, a leading international electronics corporation ranking among the Forbes Global 500. Several of our other clients have been likewise impressed with our strong environmental record, indicating that they want to do more when it comes to helping preserve our environment while we still can.
Backed by 40 Years of Expertise
We contribute our 40 years of design and manufacturing expertise spanning multiple diverse markets. We look forward to discussing how we can deliver world-class products for OEMs across the globe. We understand our home Indian market, familiar with its vast regulatory and selling environments. We foster growth opportunities within India through our strong technology incubation ecosystem. We also assist global OEMs in entering the Indian market by leveraging the local supply chain and favorable operating environments for cost reductions.
Our flagship Chennai location opened in 2006 and lies within a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) for electronics manufacturing, offering economic incentives for imports and exports. This primary facility is within 90 minutes of the Chennai seaport and 20 minutes to the international airport. Additional road and rail connectivity links to the rest of India and beyond and infrastructure advantages with faster import and export clearances. We also have labor force flexibility, both technical and manual, to scale to demand rapidly.
