Power management company Eaton has announced a collaboration with Enlighted to accelerate the deployment of sensory networks in commercial and industrial buildings. By integrating Enlighted’s hardware, software, services and broader capabilities with Eaton’s lighting-emitting diode (LED) lighting and controls portfolio, the two companies aim to increase the adoption of connected lighting solutions by providing solutions that are readily deployable. There is synergy between the lighting industry and the IoT industry, and connected lighting is an economical path to deploying IoT in commercial buildings.
“This is a moment for the lighting industry as the worlds of IoT and lighting are coming together to lay the foundation for buildings through connected lighting,” says Kraig Kasler, president, Eaton’s Lighting Division. “Lighting systems customers are demanding controls to optimize their energy costs while looking to give their buildings IoT-based sensory systems. These systems yield insight into a building’s operations, changing the way building owners and operators manage their assets and business processes.”
With Enlighted’s technology directly integrated into Eaton’s portfolio, including products with the company’s advanced WaveStream LED technology, the LumaWatt Pro Connected Lighting System powered by Enlighted is designed to deliver an advanced connected lighting solution. Enterprise customers can take advantage of the advanced IoT capabilities to acquire actionable, granular data on lighting energy use and performance, space utilization, asset tracking, HVAC and more. In addition to the LumaWatt Pro line expansion, the collaboration will allow data from Eaton’s lighting controls systems to be connected to Enlighted’s IoT applications, such as spacE (space utilization) and airE (HVAC optimization).
“The foundation for the next generation smart buildings, what we like to call brilliant buildings, is the connections made through a building’s sensory network,” says Joe Costello, chief executive officer, Enlighted. “The best way today to lay the foundation for brilliant buildings is by giving a building a sensory system. This is achieved through connected lighting, created by combining IoT capabilities with lighting manufacturers. We are excited about working on this opportunity with Eaton.”
In addition to expanding Eaton’s LumaWatt Pro, powered by Enlighted solution set, Eaton will lead the sales and support efforts of Enlighted’s solutions through the North American agent representative network and expand its own lighting systems portfolio with products integrating Enlighted’s application technology. Enlighted will continue to develop end customer demand for its applications, its reseller (VAR) network, supporting fixture partners and additional partnerships in smart building technologies.
Eaton and Enlighted’s combined lighting and controls portfolio is listed on the Design Lights Consortium’s (DLC) Network Lighting Controls Qualified Products List (QPL). The QPL is an industry resource to help understand, evaluate and compare Networked Lighting Control Systems for commercial and industrial projects. The QPL also identifies systems eligible for financial incentives and rebates from utilities and energy efficiency programs across North America.
