Get A Grip On Lighting: A Deep Dive Into the Matrix

When it comes to lighting and technology, the Get A Grip On Lighting guys invented the theory of “entering the Matrix,” referring to the ability of your lights to keep track of what you are doing and adjust to it. But, what if those lights contain a tiny camera or recording device? And what if those lights are spying on key American locations?

A new report by Bloomberg News found that tiny computer chips, smaller than a grain of rice, were implanted by Chinese manufacturers into the motherboards of computers at Apple, Amazon, and other major U.S. corporations. Chinese manufacturers also make many of the components to the LED lighting we stock and sell every day.

Greg Ehrich, LC is the former President of the National Association of Innovative Lighting Distributors (NAILD) and owner of Premier Lighting, a progressive lighting distributorship.

Michael Colligan is an entrepreneur and inventor. He’s a subject matter expert in commercial and industrial lighting supply, lighting retrofits, and finding recycling streams for hard-to-recycle waste.

In this episode, Colligan and Ehrich take a deep dive into “The Matrix,” a phrase they created, to look at why this is could be happening, what happens next, and what you need to know about how everything could have a tiny spying chip inside it.

The Get A Grip On Lighting podcast on lightED is sponsored by Keystone Technologies.
