The company has now received seven patents for its innovations and has additional applications pending.
“At Digital Lumens, our goal has always been a world where all lights are intelligent – driving radical energy efficiency and creating a platform for distributed building intelligence,” said Brian Chemel, co-author of the patents and CTO of Digital Lumens. “We are pleased that the U.S. Patent Office continues to recognize the innovations we have brought to market with our intelligent fixtures and LightRules™ management platform, and we remain committed to realizing this vision of a world full of smart lights.”
