ActiveAhead Predictive lighting


Predictive Lighting

ActiveAhead is a new kind of system. It doesn’t need to be programmed — it learns by itself from the first day. And it shares what it knows with its units directly. Predicting where light’s needed next. Saving energy, effort and cost.

Excellent for Renovation

ActiveAhead devices use the smart algorithm to learn how the space is used. They use these learnings to give the right lighting at the right time, in the right places. This means people will always have lights where they need them as they move through a space.

ActiveAhead is able to do this because it’s constantly learning. It also works straight out of the box.

Simple installation

Luminaires fitted with ActiveAhead are easy to install. Just put the luminaires in place and switch on. No wiring. No programming. No configuration. Customisation and grouping is possible, but not necessary, using the ActiveAhead mobile app.

Smart energy savings

Compared to a simple switched luminaire, ActiveAhead offers substantial energy savings. As well as predicting when and where to put the lights on, it also dims them down in a smart way based on the actual space usage.
