Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL), Helsinki

The construction of the new Building K for the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL) has been completed on Mannerheimintie, Helsinki. The new construction will house, among other things, the forensic autopsy functions and the laboratory of histology, forensic toxicology and forensic genetics as well as common facilities that serve the campus area. Exilight supplied the state-of-the-art EXIoT emergency lighting system for the site. The system utilises wireless communication between addressable luminaires, and the operation of the emergency lighting can be remotely monitored.

As the EXIoT system uses wireless communication, it is very flexible and easy to modify and implement gradually as the work progresses. It is not necessary to complete the entire system at once, and it is easy to add new luminaires to the system at a later stage. The system does not have a maximum number of luminaires; therefore, when adding new devices, there is no need to worry about group or luminaire limits as is the case with a conventional emergency lighting switchboard.
