Associated Member of the Connected Lighting Alliance (CLA)

In Sep­tem­ber 2015 Selux became an asso­ci­ated member of the Con­nected Light­ing Alliance.

The CLA was founded in 2012 by lead­ing com­pa­nies in the light­ing indus­try with the goal of pro­mot­ing the global intro­duc­tion and devel­op­ment of wire­less light­ing solu­tions using open stan­dards. As a non-profit-organ­i­sa­tion and an open consor¬tium, the Alliance analy­ses market require­ments for pro­fes­sional light­ing appli­ca­tions and iden­ti­fies stan­dard­i­s­a­tion organ­i­sa­tions for col­lab­o­ra­tion pur­poses.

As a com­pany that responds quickly to changes in tech­nol­ogy and the mar­kets, Selux wishes to be closely involved with tech­nol­ogy changes and the devel­op­ment of global stan­dards. Being a member of the Con­nected Light­ing Alliance will offer Selux the chance to do this. For years now, three trends have defined our life and work: dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion, dema­te­ri­al­i­sa­tion and net­work­ing. Mar­kets are increas­ingly con­verg­ing and tech­nolo­gies merg­ing,” explains Selux Tech­ni­cal Direc­tor Jürgen Hess. The best exam­ples of this, in his view, are Apple and Google. Their tech­nolo­gies have already seen off many prod­ucts made by con­ven­tional man­u­fac­tur­ers and will con­tinue to do so. Our wish is to antic­i­pate this devel­op­ment by build­ing inno­v­a­tive prod­ucts that are con­form to global stan­dards so we can offer our cus­tomers addi­tional func­tion­al­i­ties that go beyond the scope of stan­dard light­ing tasks.”

The knowl­edge we gain shall be the basis for pro¬duct devel­op­ments and strate­gic com­pany ma¬nagement. As a CLA member, Selux will be at the fore­front of dig­i­tal­iza­tion in the light­ing indus­try.
