Article “IoT Lifelight”

Internet of Things (IoT) disaster lighting, which induces escape by changing the color of the lighting in buildings in case of disasters such as fire and earthquake, is drawing attention. It is expected to provide information on where disasters occurred in buildings through text messages, enabling more efficient response than the existing evacuation process.


IoT disaster lighting service is a service that turns all LED lights into the red when emergency power is turned on in buildings and provides disaster information to people in buildings through text messages.


The light, which has been turned to red, is expected to provide greater alarm than the current disaster evacuation process, helping secure golden time. In most buildings, fire alarms were given off in the event of a disaster or the information was provided through human development, which made it difficult to detect the occurrence of a disaster quickly, leading to the loss of golden time. The service receives phone numbers of those who use the building in advance and sends text messages to the location of the disaster, encouraging faster evacuation.


Advanced ERS, which was established in 2014, made its products using technology that is patented by applying Bluetooth, a wireless communication technology, to industrial LEDs. It only takes 2 seconds to change the color of entire LED lights of a 100-story building with this technology. Recently, advanced ERS registered its products with the General Services Administration and is preparing to deliver them first.



The above is an article about IoT Lifelight that was developed in Korea.

In addition, IoT can be used at disaster sites in a variety of ways.


The above picture is ‘ Detecting Forest Fires using Wireless Sensor Networks ‘ developed by ‘ libelium’. Below is an overview of the technologies involved.

DIMAP-FactorLink, which under the name of SISVIA Vigilancia y Seguimiento Ambiental jointly commercialize projects for the environmental protection, have developed and integrated a forest fires detection system using the products of Libelium. The covered area is about 210 hectares in the North Spain region, comprising the Communities of Asturias and Galicia. The aim was to provide to different organizations of an environmental monitoring infrastructure, with a capability to have alert management and to deliver early warning alarms.

I think we can create the following environment enough. This is because we have the technical skills to use Ethernet, WiFi, LoRa, and Cat.M1.

The photos below are the sensor boards used to implement the above applications.



  • Temperature
  • Relative humidity
  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2)



  • Carbon monoxide (CO)
  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
  • Molecular Oxygen (O2)
  • Methane (CH4)
  • Molecular Hydrogen (H2)
  • Ammonia (NH3)
  • Isobutane (C4H10)
  • Ethanol (CH3CH2OH)
  • Toluene (C6H5CH3)
  • Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S)
  • Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
  • Atmospheric pressure

Next, you can monitor that information on the server like the photos below.
