LED has become the new norm in the lighting sector. The use of LED lighting technology has extensively grown over the last few decades.
LED technology has become a mainstay in business buildings and spaces, industries, warehouses, schools, hospitals, residences, etc.
LEDs have grown this rapidly replacing other lighting technologies because of many benefits they offer:
a. LEDs are energy efficient,
b. Produce brighter illumination with less heat,
c. Last longer and reduce the cost of maintenance (just to name a few benefits).
There is still much more that can be accomplished with LED technology than providing just illumination in the future. Here, we will have a look at the future of LED lighting technology.

In the future, LED lighting will be more human-controlled or human-centric. With such lighting technology, people will be able to create the most effective lighting environment for them. Users will be able to control and monitor the LED lighting system in many different ways.
People can tune the colours for their LED lighting. Generally, the illumination of LED light is white, smooth and broad compared to other lighting technologies. The illumination of LED is more similar to the daylight from the sun.
The colour of light aligns with the human’s circadian rhythms. LED lighting contains more blue light which is also present in the sun than incandescent lighting. This blue light hinders the production of melatonin which is the hormone that causes sleep and produces an overall sensation of being woke.
On the other hand, LED lighting can also produce red light that allows the production of melatonin and induces a sense of sleepiness. So, the feature of tuning the colour of LED lighting can be beneficial and even more beneficial in places like hospitals. So, in the future, the colour tuning feature of LED lighting will be explored and utilized.
Another way to control the LED lighting is to control the dimming feature of LED light bulbs. The lighting technology would sense the ambient light present in the room and adjust the brightness of bulbs and fixtures based on the light already there in the room due to open windows and other sources.
Another human-controlled LED lighting technology is the occupancy-sensing capability. With the occupancy-sensing capability, LED lighting technology would be able to sense whether the room is empty or not.
The lights can be turned off if there is no occupancy to save energy. The brightness of the light can be adjusted based on the occupancy of the room. For occupancy-sensing capability, the motion or heat can be sensed.
So, such a feature would not only be helpful for users but also the environment.
This is the age of the internet and the number of devices connected to the Internet is increasing. In the future, it can be predicted that internet-enabled LED lighting will be more common.
Wireless switches are used in such lighting technology and there is no need for direct wiring the light switches to LED fixtures. In such a lighting system, LED bulbs are connected to a network and users can monitor and control them from the cloud using smartphones or other devices.
With internet-enabled LED lighting, the previously discussed human-controlled LED system will be more effective. The building and other facilities can be made smarter with many capabilities.
Internet-enabled smart LED lighting will allow users to control the schedules of the lighting remotely. This will in turn help to save energy by turning off the lights when they are not needed and enhance the security of the building when the user is away.
LiFi (Light Fidelity) technology can be expected to replace WiFi in the future because of its capability to transmit data faster than WiFi. LiFi is a wireless communication technology that uses LED light instead of radio waves for data transmission. The data transmission by LiFi is about 100 times faster than that by WiFi.
Li-Fi is the next step in LED technology and the LiFi-enabled LED lighting system would provide an alternate path for the connection of the Internet in business and residential areas. Also, the problems that can be posed by WiFi can be solved.
Not only LED, but the future of LED lighting technology is also brighter. LEDs have gained huge popularity and people will continue to switch to LED lighting due to their benefits.
More improvements and advancements can be expected in the future to ensure that LED lighting technology is beneficial in different aspects of human life.
If you use other traditional lighting technologies and haven’t switched to LED yet, then what are you waiting for? Switch to LED lighting technology as soon as possible and enjoy the benefits of LEDs.
If you want your lighting system to provide illumination when there is a disruption in the main power supply for work continuity, then you can use a quality emergency light conversion kit from Sanforce. Contact us for your emergency lighting needs.
