Bring Simple, Connected Lighting Applications Home

Solutions for Connected Lighting 

From offices to the home, connected, energy-efficient LED lighting can generate energy savings and personalize work and living spaces. Take advantage of multiple wireless protocols including zigbee®, Thread, and Bluetooth® with SoCs and certified wireless stacks from Silicon Labs.

Webinar - Growing the IoT

In this webinar, we take a look at four areas driving IoT adoption and use smart connected lighting as the backdrop to discuss the factors driving growth.
