Electrical and electronic trades, together with the home and building automation sector, play a key role in the installation and operation of intelligent networks in buildings. As a result, you will find electrical and electronic solutions at Light + Building, in the context of other trades, such as lighting and home and building automation. And through this unique combination, the industry will be presenting a range of integrative products and services that make a crucial contribution to exploiting the potential for energy savings in buildings.
Building automation also has a role to play because of the way it brings together all the technical trades: the increasing use of networks and the digitalisation of electrical installations enhance the quality of life both in the workplace and in the home. At Light + Building, the industry will be showcasing solutions and technologies that aim as much at reducing energy consumption and meeting modern security requirements as they do at permitting individual design opportunities and a high degree of comfort and convenience.
One particular area of focus in 2018 is security technology. Thus, the product groups relating to home and building automation and electrically controlled security technology will be combined for the first time at Light + Building 2018. With leading suppliers from the security technology and building automation segments, the Intersec Forum and the current special exhibition ‘Secure! – Connected Security in Buildings’, Hall 9.1 will form the centre for integrated building services technology.
