Signify (formerly known as Philips Lighting), one of the global leaders in lighting launches its new IoT platform named ‘Interact’ in India. The new platform will bring new insights to help customers drive operational efficiencies and take more effective decisions. It will also support company’s strategy to deliver new data-enabled services as value expands from lighting products and systems to services.

First, we led the way in energy efficient LED lighting, then in connecting lighting to deliver operational benefits for our customers. Now that light points are smart enough to collect data on their performance and the environment around them, we are tapping into that intelligence.
