Good point DrQuine...unless the lighting is outdoor there will be little savings in dissipated power (only during summer) as you need to heat your room anyways...perhaps you gain something in LED reliability
While the need for light and energy conservation make sense in the far north, it is ironic that the place where the extra heat being generated might be a benefit (to heat the space) is where the vendor is minimizing heat production! I hope they find lots of buyers as well in warmer climates.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
