Philips Lighting (Netherlands) ranked first in the smart lighting market in 2017. Philips has been a leader in general lighting for a long time and has an extensive array of products that are used in residential, commercial, street lighting, and highway and tunnel lighting applications. Its extensive product portfolio including the lighting systems compatible with various connecting technologies, ranging from DALI, KNX, and BACnet to ZigBee and EnOcean, gives it a competitive edge over its competitors. Through its Philips Dynalite solutions range, Philips has been able to provide a one-switch solution for complete home automation, which includes intelligent control of lighting, HVAC, audio, and home entertainment systems through a single switch. Moreover, it has launched several products based on smart lighting technology and is regarded as an innovator in this domain. In April 2015, Philips Lighting launched a new technology to enable city authorities to retrofit existing LED street lights with its CityTouch connector node for the remote management of the existing lighting systems. CityTouch is a plug and play system that uses the cellular network to connect LED street lights offered by any manufacturer. Philips has been able to integrate its smart lighting technology with the current mobile and personal computing technology by launching a web-enabled LED light bulb named Hue, which can be controlled via a mobile app through smartphones and tablet PCs. In March 2016, Smartworld, a joint venture of Etisalat and Dubai South, collaborated with Philips Lighting and Cisco to create a smart, secure, and connected indoor space at its new headquarters in Dubai South.
