But in recent years, the entire lighting industry is also undergoing earth-shaking changes.

As we all know, in the field of lighting, foreign-funded enterprises have been playing a monopoly role. Once, Philips, OSRAM, GE and hi years four giants once monopolized the global lighting industry 70% of the market. However, with the arrival of the LED era and the rise of China’s lighting industry, they have started internal integration, stripping Boli business, establish a new strategic direction.

“The future of lighting must be intelligent interconnection.Then after two years of efforts, in the context of the entire Internet of things, the intelligent interconnection helps our company from a single product sales company, sells light, sells lighting, and services to the system The overall provider of the transition. “Wang Yun said.

Therefore, Philips learned Kodak, Sony and other international giants of the lessons, wisely chose to survive and upgrade the transformation of the road.

Philips lighting business has been divided into four blocks: First, the light source, that is usually referred to the traditional lighting and Led high bay low light fixtures ; Second, lighting; Third, the sensor and software systems, with the development of digital technology, Philips has formed a “light source + Sensor + software “system; four is to extend the service, including information and life cycle planning arrangements.

It is understood that millet intelligent hardware team in 1 to 2 days to ordinary household electrical appliances through the millet intelligent module to achieve intelligent, install the millet wireless module, the traditional electronic products can access millet intelligent home ecosystem, with millet The hardware interconnection on the ecological chain.

In addition, Philips Lighting and the United States, Cisco, Apple and other companies have also cross-border cooperation, and another Hue development port open, many developers have developed for Philips Philips more than 200 applications. Philips lighting with an open attitude to deal with this huge market, hand a number of enterprises.

“Lighting is no longer just a simple pursuit of improving energy efficiency or energy conservation.Intelligent interconnection is the future of all industries.Poltage is a very important part of intelligent interconnection, Philips is working with Apple, millet and other different partners together To achieve the energy field of intelligent interconnection of the future. “Wang Yun told reporters.

He believes that the lighting environment has undergone tremendous changes, not just a single lighting can no longer become a powerful industry within the enterprise changes, more is the big data, “Internet +” boom of the external changes, these make lighting no longer Confined to a single lighting frame, but the need to form a large data characteristics of the lighting products.

In this regard, Wang Yun that the era of great data survival of the fittest, the world has quietly entered the era of large data, it is not only a big economic environment, but also profoundly changed the traditional appearance of lighting. Enterprises only with innovative ideas and actions, take the initiative to embrace the era of large data in order to capture the value from the data to win the future.

“When every lamp on the ceiling has an IP address, the light has precise positioning and navigation capabilities, and its accuracy can reach centimeters, far more than we are currently using WiFi and Bluetooth positioning system. For example, Shanghai, People’s Square has 19 subway exports, Xujiahui has 20 subway exports, people come out often is halo, do not know the direction.If the installation of the lights on the ceiling to navigate out of a correct access to the direction of its convenience Is everyone needs. “Wang Yun told reporters.

At present, Philips Lighting in Shanghai, the world’s second largest research and development base, the base not only for China’s product design to provide support, but also excellent products and services to the world. At the same time, Philips Lighting is also building a leading global LED production and application base in Chengdu.

“With the maturity of LED technology, Philips Lighting is selling products from selling the concept of service to change, we actively adapt to the development of the lighting industry, the new normal, and constantly adjust the development strategy, transformation into a high value-added service providers.” Wang Yun Say so.
