The ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) era has arrived, and is changing the way we interact with art and exhibits ... and how art and exhibits react back. Lighting fixtures are at the center of this revolution. They are the tool that empowers museums and visitors alike. This breakthrough reimagines LEDs beyond a light source, analyzing the IoT requirements and applications. The museums’ cloud content can be programed to beacons inside lighting fixtures, then delivered directly to the museum goers’ devices via Bluetooth or Light ID for an unparalleled, interactive experience. IoT is the portal to connect a new generation of museum visitors.
