Acuity Brands Acquires Indoor Location Software Company

April 20, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

Acuity Brands acquired the patent portfolio and all other intellectual property rights of ByteLight, a provider of indoor location software for LED lighting.

Acuity Brands says the combination of ByteLight’s indoor positioning technology with Acuity Brands’ communication-enabled drivers and LED lighting platforms provides retailers with a method of delivering digital content to shoppers and associates within a retail store.

ByteLight uses Visible Light Communication (VLC) and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technologies in combination with smart-phone apps and cloud services to transform LED lighting into indoor location waypoints that provide shoppers with indoor navigation and also allows retailers to communicate targeted digital content to a shopper’s smartphone.
