Retrolux and Lunera are partnering on smart lighting products. The press release, posted at Solid State Lighting Design, says that Retrolux’s integrated software solutions for the commercial lighting retrofit industry soon will be exclusively featured in Lunera’s smart LED products.
The release says that Lunera offers LED replacements for HID lamps and retrofit kits, linear fluorescent lamps and pin-based CFLs. It has integrated Internet of Things (IoT) functionality into LED lighting devices.
The IoT is a huge area of development in lighting technology. The IoT collects vast amounts of data that enables organizations to more efficiently and effectively manage and operate their facilities. It is especially important in the lighting landscape for two reasons. Since lighting is one of the big ticket items in energy spending, better control will enable significant savings. The other reason is tactical: Lights are everywhere in and around a facility. Co-locating the sensors with lights therefore is a natural.
