Focal Point LLC and Osram are working together to deliver smart lighting solutions for commercial spaces. Integrating the Osram Connected Lighting Module (CLM) into a range of Focal Point luminaires as part of its Connected Solutions program allows the monitoring and modulating of light, maximizing occupant comfort and optimizing energy costs.
“Built on common values of social and environmental responsibility, our synergy has allowed us to develop lighting solutions that create more operating efficiencies in commercial buildings, combating rising electricity costs and contributing to our environment. Our Connected Solutions program also includes several other whole building lighting control systems,” says Mike Thornton, chief marketing officer for Focal Point LLC.
The use of an Osram CLM enables each luminaire to be independently controlled and configured, communicating wirelessly with Osram ENCELIUM, ENCELIUM EDGE, Daintree Network and other control systems using the ZigBee HA communication protocol. Embedding a CLM into Focal Point luminaires creates a seamless integration of lighting and controls, adding value beyond illumination and energy savings. The selection of integrated architectural troffers, recessed linear and suspended luminaires help achieve spaces that connect people to their environment. As Focal Point expands its product offering, it plans to integrate Osram CLM to allow for whole building lighting management.
The synergy between lighting and the IoT is transforming industries such as real estate and healthcare, creating intelligent building solutions that deliver valuable information. The value of these systems reaches more than specifiers, contractors and building occupants. It empowers building owners and managers to increase efficiencies, optimize performance and deliver comfortable environments.
