LG Electronics and Autani Join Forces on Wireless Smart Lighting Solution

By Ken Briodagh May 09, 2017

Leveraging their complementary capabilities, LG Electronics USA and Autani have joined forces and announced a new ecosystem designed to transform the way building operators and owners are running their facilities and optimizing energy management. LG’s LED Fixtures with ZigBee HA wireless controls are now certified to work on Autani's EnergyCenter software platform out of the box, which will help create a comprehensive wireless network for smart buildings that can be managed and monitored based on real-time information. 

With this platform, LG and Autani are responding to challenges in the industry and offering clarity in a complicated arena. Building managers are under tremendous pressure to reduce energy costs and report results. Benchmark data, long unavailable, is increasingly used to compare operating cost characteristics of diverse buildings, while effective management of energy without compromising occupant comfort and functionality requires a digital transformation that is seamless and easy.

“Efficiency, sustainability and innovation are at the forefront of each business decision at LG. We wanted to accelerate and optimize smart controls for our clients, which is why we chose to integrate Autani's EnergyCenter with LG's LED Lighting fixtures,” said Sean Lafferty, head of LED lighting business in the U.S., LG. “LG and Autani's solution allows our customers to maximize their controls investment by integrating more intelligent building controls and LED lighting that can be managed and maintained on one seamless wireless network for maximum convenience.”

LG will be reselling the full line of Autani control equipment, including a special LG ZigBee version of Autani's Manager Appliance. With this unique resale approach, LG is the only lighting manufacturer that can provide a full suite of lighting and energy management system controls to customers in a one-stop shop.

“Combining Autani's best-in-class IoT solutions with LG's innovative LED Lighting fixtures creates a comprehensive platform that gives customers the exact technology they need for any situation, as well as faster payback on their investment,” said Jim Seabury, CEO, Autani's parent company Enterprise Solutions. “The system's flexibility sets the stage for a single solution that manages all energy consumption in a building and provides immediate ROI to our customers through energy savings.”
