Integrators, Replace Electricians With PoE Lighting

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Aug 19, 2016

Electricians often steal security business, causing problems for themselves, users and security integrators.

Now, an emerging technology could flip things by allowing integrators to install lights, with the end result looking just like conventional systems.

Are these products a novelty, or do they represent real advancement in lighting technology? In this note, we analyze PoE Illumination's potential impact in the integration market, looking at:

  • LED power consumption and PoE math
  • Management benefits
  • Licensing benefits
  • Commercial options
  • Upcoming PoE standard
  • Market upside for integrators
