Smart lighting company Juganu has launched a network technology-powered connected lighting system called “The Foam.” The Foam was designed to make retail locations “smart” by providing retailers with suggestions to improve operations, and creating more personalized shopping experiences for their customers.
The Foam connects directly into pre-existing light fixtures at any retail space, including shopping centers, department stores or groceries. The system uses smart sensors and cameras to offer actionable operations insights, such as proposals to align store layout with customer purchasing trends, queue management for optimized checkout and ongoing employee performance analysis. Specific applications include:
- Collection of real-time store traffic data, ongoing product organization and layout analysis and topline energy efficiency;
- Enhanced safety through 24/7 disinfection with continually deployed UVA and UVC light and employee health verification;
- Personalized customer journeys including the ability to locate in-store products from devices; and
- Remote access to a scalable SaaS platform that can be customized to business needs.
