Greater adoption of light emitting diodes and integration of information and communication technologies (ICT) is transforming lighting into the Internet-of-Things (IoT) era. In this paper, we outline the role IoT lighting can play in a connected building eco-system. We present a generic IoT lighting system architecture, and explain how lighting systems can serve as a provider of both lighting and non-lighting data. A system control and data web services model is then proposed through which a third-party can access lighting system data. We finally provide examples of new applications and services enabled with IoT lighting data.
