by Brianna Crandall — August 28, 2019 — Douglas Lighting Controls, a member of the Panasonic family of companies, recently announced the launch of its newest energy management platform, CheckLight. The new cloud-based technology pairs seamlessly with Douglas centralized, distributed and wireless lighting control systems.
CheckLight has the ability to report through its own dashboard or share data through APIs compatible with building management systems (BMSs). The application allows secure global access to facility lighting allowing the user to adjust lights and lighting system settings from any location.
This tool is useful for monitoring energy usage and optimizing cost based on consumption. CheckLight is OPEN ADR ready and can execute any automated demand response command.
Rob Mahaffey, general manager of Douglas Lighting Controls, remarked:
At Douglas, we are consistently focused on improvements that impact our clients’ bottom line by enhancing and maximizing product efficiency. CheckLight offers the most advanced technology designed to simplify monitoring and managing energy output from any location, at any time, allowing our clients to remain connected and able to control efficiency while on-the-go.
The new technology offered by CheckLight allows users to benchmark their portfolio of buildings, uncover energy conservation opportunities, create new energy conservation strategies, analyze growing inefficiencies in lighting loads, and seamlessly share data with other building management software for in-depth comparative analysis.
CheckLight can report area, floor, building, or portfolio of buildings data. The platform sends out alerts when the system is not operating correctly.
Douglas is upgrading its Bluetooth Wireless System, Dialog Centralized Controller and Dialog Room Controller to be compatible with CheckLight.
