Formed in 2015, WiZ Connected is a French-Asian lighting software solutions company based in Hong Kong with an international team of highly skilled software, hardware, firmware and backend engineers. Its founders have been designing decorative luminaires and engineering technical lighting since 2004, producing more than 80 million lights as of now, including some of the very first LED bulbs and recessed downlights. WiZ is deployed in 25 countries across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.
Over 60 lighting vendors around the world are WiZifying hundreds of lighting fixtures. With these partners, the WiZ team is building the most relevant connected light ecosystem, benefiting both end users and enterprises.
WiZ is proud to announce that it has been acquired by Signify (formerly Philips Lighting), the world leader in lighting for professionals and consumers, and connected lights. WiZ Connected will continue to operate as an autonomous entity, selling its WiFi-based connected products under its own brand name and licensing its open platform technology to other electrical and lighting vendors via co-labelling.
“We are very pleased to join forces with the teams of WiZ Connected who have developed a great technology platform enabling us to address a larger customer base in the growing market of Wi-Fi-based lighting. It perfectly complements Signify’s existing offers and will help us to continue to deliver an experience rich in light and intuitive in use for our customers.”
