Company’s software-driven, automated life-safety platform is an industry-first

Boston, August 31, 2016 – Digital Lumens, the market leader in intelligent LED lighting and sensor-based smart building applications, announced today that its LightRules Emergency Management Solution has received the 2016 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award from IoT Evolution Magazine and IoT Evolution World, the leading magazine and website covering all things smart and connected.

While many traditional emergency lighting systems require time consuming and expensive manual testing, which creates the risk of missed system failures, Digital Lumens’ LightRules Emergency Management Solution enables automated life-safety testing and reporting. Users can schedule automated monthly and annual tests, monitor system performance, and document the health and status of the emergency lighting system to ensure code-compliant lighting and employee safety, and create simplified, easily-accessible records, all without interrupting operations.

“We are honored that our software-based business solution has been recognized by Crossfire Media and TMC,” said Kaynam Hedayat, VP of Marketing and Product Management at Digital Lumens. “LightRules software is constantly evolving and expanding to meet the needs of customers across the world, and our Emergency Management System is yet another way our users can apply intelligent lighting and the IoT to make their facilities safer and more efficient. With that, they’re able to free up valuable resources from highly manual tasks, avoid expensive downtime, and create a more productive environment.”

“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution Product of Year Award reflect the diverse range of innovation driving the machine to machine market today. It is my honor to congratulate Digital Lumens for their innovative work and superior contribution to the rapidly evolving IoT industry,” said Carl Ford, CEO of Crossfire Media, a co-publisher of IoT Evolution. The winners of the 2016 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award will be published in the next issue of IoT Evolution magazine.

In addition to the Emergency Management System, the company’s innovative LightRules lighting control and business intelligence platform also support a variety of other smart building applications, and offer lighting and energy control, task automation, and operational visibility through facility-wide energy and occupancy snapshots, tables, and trends. Robust, user-friendly dashboards report real-time energy cost savings, and customizable energy and occupancy trend indicators monitor facility performance and inform energy usage forecasts. Reporting and sharing functions allow users to validate cost savings and energy usage, and apply a wealth of occupancy and asset management information to the benefit of their organization’s bottom line.
