AbstractPower over Ethernet has become an increasingly popular technique to power connected devices particularly in an office setting. To take advantage of this trend, this project created a smart lighting system that utilizes Power over Ethernet to provide energy to LED lighting nodes. Each of the lighting nodes can be controlled over Bluetooth using a smartphone app and has integrated smart lighting features, such as motion detection. In addition, each lighting node provides 310 lumens of light at its maximum setting which is equivalent to a 40W incandescent bulb or 5W CFL; however, only 3.696W of power are consumed by the design, making it more efficient than lights that are currently on the market.
