Philips PowerBalance LED lighting systems are highly flexible with many options for customization – for the building as a whole, but also on the level of individual users.

Philips PowerBalance LED is a digital technology at heart, which means that all office’s lights can be included in lighting-management software system. Through the scalable and secure Interact Office IoT platform, the lighting can be fine-tuned based on the time of day, room occupancy or available daylight. Users can even control the individual luminaires that light their desk or workspace, using a dedicated smartphone app. All of this helps to create truly green buildings worthy of BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method) or LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. It complies to all international office lighting norms, and more than halves energy costs compared to a conventional solution, while the light source has a longer lifetime. This results in significantly lower operational costs, ensuring a payback that suits the needs of the specification market.
