Boston, Mass., April 29, 2010 – Digital Lumens, the developer of the industry’s first Intelligent Lighting System™, today announced has been included in the list of “Cool Vendors” in the Cool Vendors in Sustainability, 2010 report by Gartner, Inc.
According to the report, “The intelligence of IT will be at the heart of many sustainable solutions…. Every organization should consider lighting an opportunity for improved energy efficiency…. “
“We are thrilled to be included in Gartner’s sustainability report – and that our Intelligent Lighting System has been so well received,” said Tom Pincince, President and CEO, Digital Lumens. “The lighting industry is in the midst of a dramatic shift as the intersection of LEDs, networking and software creates greater efficiency while giving customers new capabilities that are simply not possible with ‘dumb’ fixtures alone. We will continue to develop the smart solutions that help our customers reduce energy use and save costs.”
In March, Digital Lumens announced the industry’s first Intelligent Lighting Solution that integrates LEDs, networking and software to reduce its customers’ lighting-related energy costs by up to 90 percent. Designed for large industrial facilities, the system includes best-of-breed, LED-based fixtures, each with on-board computing, sensing and built-in intelligence. The fixtures form a Smart Light Grid or “lighting network” with system-wide intelligence and integrated controls that deliver energy-efficiency results that far surpass the results achievable with single standalone fixtures.
