An additional 35% energy savings thanks to the integration of LED lighting at ID Logistics


LED lighting has a very high energy saving potential, but to realise this potential it is not enough to simply replace conventional luminaires with LEDs. They also need to be integrated into a control system that automates the operation of the whole installation.

ID Logistics, a company in the logistics industry, learned this when it decided to integrate LED lighting into its control system with the help of experts from Signify (formerly Philips Lighting).

The investment reduced lighting energy consumption by an average of 35%.

Not just LEDs: How does IoT save energy?

Most business owners are aware that replacing outdated lighting with LEDs guarantees energy savings. However, there is less awareness of intelligent management systems that automatically adjust lighting parameters to current conditions and prevent energy waste.

Aware of this, ID Logistics, for whom innovation is one of the pillars of their long-term strategy, approached Signify to create an optimisation plan for their current (approximately 2-year-old) LED warehouse lighting in Krajków.

Both ID Logistics and Signify wanted the lighting management system to use the existing electrical installation as much as possible, resulting in additional savings and significantly reducing potential waste. Another aim was to integrate with the existing network of industrial push-buttons distributed throughout the hall, so that the lighting could be controlled not only via an app or a new touch panel, but also via the existing solution.

After integrating the lighting into the Philips Dynalite system, the way the warehouse operates has changed significantly. The Philips Dynalite system monitors conditions in the warehouse by analysing data collected by sensors installed in the luminaires.

There are two types of sensors in the ID Logistics warehouse in Krajków:

  • Daylight sensors measure the intensity of light entering the interior through skylights and adjust the intensity of artificial lighting accordingly. These sensors are mainly located in open areas where storage, manual work and loading take place.
  • Motion detectors automatically activate the lighting when an employee or forklift is in the vicinity. They are installed in the warehouse aisles.

All data is collected in the Philips Dynalite system application, where it is automatically visualised for later analysis. The system also receives information about the technical condition of the luminaires and the amount of energy they consume. As a result, any irregularities can be detected at a very early stage and rectified immediately.

This integration not only optimises energy consumption, but also improves operational efficiency by ensuring that lighting is used effectively and maintained proactively, ultimately contributing to a more productive working environment in the warehouse.

The full benefits of using a lighting control system include:

  • Reduced energy consumption and costs: Implementing an LED lighting control system can reduce electricity consumption by up to 30%. In the case of ID Logistics Krajków, the average reduction was 35%.
  • Flexibility: The Philips Dynalite system allows the visualisation and modification of defined zones and their lighting parameters via remote applications and an intuitive touch panel installed at the entrance to the hall. This adaptability ensures that the lighting can be adapted to the current layout of the hall and the nature of the tasks being performed.
  • Improved safety and comfort for workers: The integrated lighting solution automatically provides better visibility and lighting levels to help workers safely navigate the warehouse. This reduces the risk of accidents and injuries, and improves employee well-being.
  • Reduced maintenance and service costs: The system enables remote monitoring of the technical condition of individual luminaires, allowing quick and accurate responses to any malfunctions or problems, thereby reducing maintenance costs.
  • Achieving ESG goals: A well-designed controlled lighting solution in a warehouse can help achieve ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) objectives across all three dimensions by reducing energy consumption, CO2 emissions and waste, improving employee safety and well-being, reducing operating costs and ensuring resilience to change. This helps to improve the company’s financial stability and reputation.

These benefits highlight the strategic importance of integrating advanced lighting control systems such as Philips Dynalite in optimising operational efficiency, sustainability and the overall working environment in industrial environments.

In summary, integrating existing LED lighting with a well-designed control system provides additional savings and protects the company from the effects of the energy crisis and rising electricity costs. It also reduces the company’s carbon footprint and improves working conditions in the warehouse.

Employees don’t have to worry about the lighting, as the Philips Dynalite system ensures that the settings are always optimal, allowing them to focus on their core tasks and increase their efficiency. This integration not only contributes to significant energy and cost savings, but also promotes a more sustainable and productive working environment.
