Daintree Networks, a provider of networked wireless controls for smart buildings, has teamed with LG Electronics to create an LED wireless control system. The companies worked to embed Daintree’s ControlScope wireless communication capability directly into LED drivers used in LG LED lighting fixtures.
Initial LG products with wireless drivers include LED troffer fixtures and retrofit kits. Daintree estimates that, with the LG-Daintree system, companies can expect to save up to 85 percent per fixture in equipment and labor for installing wireless communication. They also predict improved energy efficiency up to 90 percent.
Using wireless LED drivers eliminates the need for using a separate wireless adapter, which was required for granular wireless control of overhead troffers in commercial and industrial buildings.
Daintree’s wireless networking uses open standards for interoperability.
