Eaton and Enlighted Team Up to Deliver Connected Lighting for Buildings

By Ken Briodagh March 02, 2017

Power management company Eaton has announced a collaboration with Internet of Things (IoT) company Enlighted to accelerate the deployment of advanced sensory networks in commercial and industrial buildings. By integrating Enlighted’s hardware, software, services and broader capabilities with Eaton’s LED lighting and controls portfolio, the two companies aim to dramatically increase the adoption of connected lighting solutions by providing simplified solutions that are readily deployable, according to the statement.

“This is a transformational moment for the lighting industry as the worlds of IoT and lighting are coming together to lay the foundation for brilliant buildings through connected lighting,” said Kraig Kasler, president, Lighting Division, Eaton. “Lighting systems customers are demanding sophisticated controls to optimize their energy costs while looking to give their buildings advanced IoT-based sensory systems. These systems yield profound 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 a highly 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).

“Commercial real estate is the largest asset class on the planet. 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,” said Joe Costello, CEO, Enlighted. “The best way today to lay the foundation for brilliant buildings is by giving a building a sensory system. This is most efficiently achieved through connected lighting, created by combining advanced IoT capabilities with leading lighting manufacturers. We are excited about working on this huge 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 world class value-added applications, its value-added reseller (VAR) network, supporting fixture partners and additional partnerships in smart building technologies.
