needs to be bigger, more connected, and frankly, a whole lot smarter.
Changing how the world thinks is a big job.
Smart technology is all around us. But what is smart? What was smart yesterday is ordinary today and downright disappointing tomorrow.
That’s why we’re not particularly interested in defining what smart is and isn’t—we’re much more concerned with changing how people think about smart.
We see smart evolving from being about things into a state that surrounds us, a platform that informs us, an intelligence that empowers us, and an ambience that transforms everything we touch and shines down on everyplace we go.
Over the last few decades we’ve gone from thinking that the computer is the computer, to understanding that the network is the computer. This was a massive shift in how people think about technology. Today, the network is all around us—billions of devices, transmitting endless data. Welcome to the Internet of Things. It surrounds us. It’s everywhere. It’s ambient.
Lunera Ambient Compute is the network platform of tomorrow. It provides every smart device that exists today—and ones we can’t even imagine in the future—a robust foundation for IoT connectivity and communications.
It also supports a limitless ecosystem of applications that can run in and between the cloud, at the edge and on the devices themselves.
And it will enable the context-aware and fully automated user experiences that will define the next era of computing.
Looks like a lightbulb, but it’s a revolution.
At first glance, the Lunera Smart T8 bulb is pretty unassuming. It looks like a standard LED bulb. It’s plug-and-play (no wiring). And, just like all energy-efficient LED lights, over time it even pays for itself.
But what you don’t see is the real story: leading-edge IoT software combined with networking, computing, control and sensor hardware.
This means that everywhere you have a lighting fixture (which is basically everywhere), you have a powerful networking and computing platform with the ability to enable things like context-based wayfinding, asset tracking, Wi-Fi monitoring, proximity messaging, space utilization and more.
THE APPLICATION ECOSYSTEM
The smartest marketplace around.
We’re not alone. The first wave of truly integrated third-party applications for our platform can be accessed from the Lunera Ambient Compute Marketplace.
Here are just a few of the featured applications:
Real-time location-based services that turn each lamp into a beacon capable of transmitting and receiving signals
IoT networking that enables connectivity of everything smart to realize the potential of the IoT within indoor settings
Energy management allows for a different user experience for each building occupant
“Every day we are presented with ‘innovative’ technologies that will improve our employees’ work experience and increase productivity. However, very rarely do we encounter a company like Lunera that has such a unique approach to change the way context-based applications are run in and between the cloud, further changing the way we all operate.”
