With cheaper and smarter lights fast replacing incandescent bulbs and compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), smart connected lights will become one of the largest internet of things (IoT) devices in the next five to 10 years, said Harshvardhan Chitale, Vice Chairman and Managing Director, Philips Lighting India.

"The next generation of changes (in lighting) that people will adopt will be intelligent, smart lights, which are IoT devices. Lights in the next 5-10 years will become one of the largest IoT-driven devices," added Chitale.

"In terms of digital infrastructure, technology awareness and software progress to develop application which are India-specific, we have all of it. Hence what we have seen is when we introduced solutions in India, in each of the four-five verticals (homes, offices, street and retail chains, etc.), we have some very quick hits and there are many adopters who are lapping it up," Chitale added.
