Brings Wireless Management and Data Analytics to Retail and Hospitality Applications
LAS VEGAS, NV, June 2, 2014 – Digital Lumens and Xicato today announced a strategic partnership to bring wireless intelligent solutions to professional indoor applications, drive adoption, and lower the cost of ownership of energy efficient, smart lighting.
By combining Xicato’s XIM Intelligent Modules that integrate driver, dimming and diagnostic electronics within the light source, and Digital Lumens’ Digital Light Agent (DLA) wireless sensing and control modules, luminaire manufacturers can now offer intelligent lighting via LightRules, Digital Lumens’ energy and intelligence software platform. The LightRules-based software system will wirelessly manage lighting and gather key data about the operating environment, while delivering Digital Lumens’ signature efficiency, flexibility and control. Digital Lumens will display the integration in booth #6518 at LightFair 2014 in Las Vegas, NV.
“Retail and hospitality segments offer a tremendous growth opportunity for smart lighting. The Xicato-Digital Lumens solution enables the lighting and facilities communities to improve operations and business with wireless intelligent solutions,” said Menko de Roos, CEO of Xicato. “Together we deliver smart lighting that improves efficiencies, lowers ownership costs and makes sense for the professional indoor lighting community.”
“We are delighted to partner with Xicato to accelerate the global adoption of intelligent lighting systems,” said Tom Pincince, President and CEO of Digital Lumens. “Our joint approach makes it quick, easy and cost-effective to connect the XIM to the DLA and LightRules, and provides new levels of value in any environment.”
Smart lighting will evolve quickly with the introduction of easier to use integrated approaches like those being introduced by Xicato and Digital Lumens. Data analytics and smart lighting applications will drive new business models for commerce and information and the Smart Lighting market will surpass $56B by 2020, according to MarketsandMarkets latest Smart Lighting report.
