Japanese manufacturer Net LED Technology Corporation has released the first cloud-based Wi-Fi lighting system. The 40-W light allows users to dim lights and wattage from a computer, smartphone (iPhone app), or RFID device.
The costs of the lighting setup runs 60,000 yen ($781 USD) for the primary server, which supports up to 100 lights; 19,800 yen ($257 USD) for the main tube; and 14,000 yen ($182 USD) for secondary lights.
According to Net LED, the installation of 200 lights will save the average company over 200,000 yen ($2,500 USD) annually, which reflects a decrease in power consumption over standard non-dimming LEDs by half.
