Abstract

Recently occupancy-based lighting control has shown a great promise towards achieving better energy efficiency. Generally, traditional systems use additional sensors to detect user presence with higher precision to better the control algorithms. In this work, we show how a smartphone-based indoor localization can be utilized for this purpose without deploying additional sensors. Apart from automatic controlling of the lights, our system provides a sophisticated manual control, where each light unit can be controlled by just pointing the phone towards it. Based on our experiments, we show that up to 67% more energy saving is possible using our systems compared to traditional methods.
