Daintree Networks is partnering with UC Davis’ California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) with the goal of advancing lighting controls.
Daintree and CLTC will demonstrate how open standards communications and controls can simplify the integration process for commercial buildings to meet California’s building energy efficiency goals.
Daintree says the adoption of lighting control technology is the first step to creating smart buildings, which goes beyond lighting and includes thermostats, electrical plugs, etc.
Daintree’s ControlScope wireless networked, open standards-based energy management and monitoring for lighting control will allow the CLTC to demonstrate system integration and illustrate energy efficiency gains through intelligent data analytics.
CLTC is a not-for-profit research, development and demonstration facility dedicated to accelerating the development and commercialization of next-generation, energy-efficient lighting and daylighting technologies.
The California Energy Commission’s 2013 Building Energy Efficiency Standards make adaptive lighting the new standard in California, says CLTC.
