Our vision is to be the leading IoT solutions provider for the Building Internet of Things (BIoT) industry and first choice provider for emergency and commercial lighting products.


To develop IoT solutions that digitally transform the property investment and building management industry.

Mission Statement

To produce high quality LED emergency lighting which can be leveraged to cost-effectively provide building owners and operators with the technology and the IoT network to create smarter, cleaner, safer and more sustainable buildings.

Who We Are

WBS Technology has been operating in Australia since January 2011 as a provider of quality energy efficient LED emergency lighting and exit signs.

As a leading Australian manufacturer, all our products are designed and developed in-house by our Research and Development engineers.  WBS products are stringently tested to ensure reliability and longevity.

We pride ourselves on supplying the market with affordable, quality products backed with a warranty that is double the industry standard.  In our pursuit of excellence, we also continually strive to challenge ourselves by developing the next generation of emergency lighting solutions.

Core Values

Research and Development

Through extensive research combined with years of industry knowledge and expertise as an emergency lighting manufacturer, the WBS team has developed new technologies designed to transform the building management industry.

Our ongoing commitment to research will see an exciting range of network functions emerging over the coming months.

ARC Linkage Project, Australian Research Council

Project Title: Lightweight security framework for Low-Power Wide-Area Network (LPWAN).

This project aims to design and implement a lightweight security framework for Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWAN).

Smart cities are estimated to have a worldwide market value of US$1.5 trillion by 2020, and LPWAN will provide connectivity to 90% of low bandwidth for smart city applications such as smart metres and smart buildings. Many of these applications are deployed in mission-critical infrastructure such as airports, train stations, hospitals and government buildings, which have strong security requirements.

Before the ubiquitous deployment of such new technology, a strong security framework needs to be developed and implemented.  This will ensure that the economic and social impacts of malicious attacks on an LPWAN will be minimised

2018 - ACS Digital Disruptors Award

ACS (Australian Computer Society) is the largest professional body in Australia representing the ICT sector.  WBS Technology was awarded the Gold Disruptor award for Service Transformation for the Digital Consumer.

A Service Transformation project is a project that uses innovative ways to change how an organisation provides their services to the consumer. Our award application identified the Process Improvement, Change Implementation and Management Techniques used. The project provides a better digitally based experience for the customer with measurable controls and outputs.
