Contractors haven’t always been fans of connected lighting systems. One of the biggest reasons is that they’ve had previous experience with first-generation products that were expensive, difficult to install, and incredibly complex. In an industry largely driven by preexisting relationships, perceptions, and familiarity, new and advanced technology solutions sometimes face an uphill climb trying to overcome first impressions.
LEDVANCE set out to turn around contractors’ perceptions of connected lighting solutions once and for all. Their new LEDVANCE LINKTM Wireless Ecosystem is designed throughout to make networked lighting control quick, easy, and painless for both installers and end users. This article explores the features that make LEDVANCE LINKTM the ideal solution for contractors who want to offer their customers the convenience and energy efficiency of the latest lighting solutions without the hassle and cost of added wiring or complicated gateways.
