Lumenergi extends building lighting control solution for seamless scalability
Date Announced: 02 May 2012
-- Single Product Solution for Building Lighting Control Now Feasible from a Single Room to a Complete Building
NEWARK, CA –- Lumenergi® (the “Company”), a leading provider of network-controlled lighting energy management solutions, has extended its product line in a way that fundamentally changes how commercial facilities will manage lighting energy.
The Company’s new Room Solution brings Lumenergi’s intelligent lighting control network down to small spaces, enabling a highly customizable system that integrates most lamp types and existing building infrastructure with local dimming and control. Customers starting with the Room Solution now have the flexibility to extend their lighting control system beyond a small space to an entire building with total investment protection. While preserving lighting infrastructure, the Room Solution offers up to 50% energy savings for smaller spaces without the need for external power to any components, centralized control software or networked servers.
Lumenergi will introduce its new Room Solution alongside its Area and Building Solution configurations at LIGHTFAIR® International at the Las Vegas Convention Center from May 9-11, 2012, booth #2246. LIGHTFAIR is the largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference.
“As many commercial renovations start one room or area at a time, the Room Solution fundamentally changes the game for facilities managers needing simple and flexible lighting control to start saving energy quickly,” said Susie Minton, Vice President of Marketing for Lumenergi.
“Our customers want to meet code and reduce energy consumption but are dealing with a mixture of existing lamp types and wiring configurations that introduce complexity. As needs expand, building owners also want to ensure that investments made today provide an infrastructure to build for tomorrow. With our new Room Solution, customers can integrate old and new at their own pace and approach lighting energy management without unnecessary complexity, disruption or waste.”
Lumenergi is also introducing a new Intelligent Sensor, capable of both occupancy and photo sensing in a single device. The Sensor's occupancy capability is utilized in the integrated Room Solution when combined with a wall Control Switch providing local dimming and automatic pre-set scene control. Easily operated by any building occupant, the Room Solution can be customized by avid users who want to personalize their lighting scenes. The new Room Solution provides a plug and play DALI and 0-10V control for most light sources, including LFLs, CFLs, LEDs, and Halogens. Standard features include occupancy sensing, programmed time-out and courtesy flash signaling control of all zones. All of these capabilities can be enabled without the need for servers, PCs, control software or external power to the components, making it one of the most agile lighting control products available. The Room Solution is also easy to install and integrates with existing or new lighting infrastructure by just click-connecting the system elements. With powerful scene functionality in a convenient, intuitive and cost effective product, facilities can scale up to multiple rooms, areas or a complete building when and where customers want to meet energy efficiency goals.
“Lumenergi’s integrated lighting control solutions enable building owners and operators to act with insight,” said Barry Weinbaum, President and CEO of Lumenergi. “We give lighting control back to our customers, whether it’s the ability to customize tuning of a building’s lighting operation, or optimize central control in a particular building, area or zone via reports that pinpoint energy waste and enable corrective action. Without requiring unnecessary technology or building operation disruptions, Lumenergi’s powerful solution set allows customers to achieve their savings, their way.”
