Technology has developed so far that LED lighting can replace any former way of lighting. Many would think about esthetics, such as LED-strips behind an edge as an alternative for atmospheric lighting, but there is more.
When I developed this concept, I came up with many other things that are not only esthetic, but also contribute to a practical and safer home. Designs such as a door handle that shows wether if it's locked or not. Sensing turn-on lights for when you come home or go to the bathroom at night. Heat indication for shower heads, water taps, and cooking equipment. Some of these things are yet existing products and some of them need to be developed, but altogether, it could be a marketable package. A complete LED home makeover could be made possible with PlentyLED. Combined with domotics it would be even better.
This concept won an award for the best idea for 'Lang Zult U Wonen'. An initiative, run by the province Overijssel, NL. Lang Zult U Wonen advises in adjusting your home to make it safer, comfortable and grow old in.
