by Brianna Crandall — August 24, 2016 — Enlighted, a provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for commercial buildings, has been listed on the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Advanced Lighting Controls (ALC) Qualified Products List as one of only two networked lighting controls products currently recognized. It is the only product on the list that meets DLC Specifications in all configurations, says Enlighted.
Founded in 1996, the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) is dedicated to accelerating the adoption of high-performing, energy efficient commercial lighting solutions. The DLC’s Qualified Products List (QPL) defines high performance through specific technical requirements and is used as a resource by experts throughout the commercial lighting industry. Specifically, the DLC has developed a new specification for Advanced Lighting Controls (ALC) that will be used by utilities nationally for incentives.
Last week Enlighted CEO Joe Costello addressed the DLC at its annual stakeholder meeting, exploring the future of lighting and its value as the key to unlocking the Internet of Things (IoT), with the ability to enable asset tracking, space utilization and heating / ventilation / air-conditioning (HVAC) optimization. Costello said:
Recognition from the DesignLights Consortium on its ALC Qualified Product List is not only an honor, but helps further demonstrate how systems like Enlighted’s are leading the way in the realm of IoT. We envision a marketplace where all LED lighting will be installed with ALC, enabling lighting control to go beyond just energy savings — to truly unlocking the IoT.
Enlighted’s IoT solutions create smart buildings through new and existing lighting systems by establishing a network of smart sensors that gather data in real time on light, heat, occupancy, security, and asset location. The data is analyzed via apps and interface with building systems to optimize the environment — leading to enhanced comfort, reduced cost and ultimate efficiency.
