Product Line Now Includes LightRules Keypad for Additional Control Options
Boston, MA, October 15, 2013 – Digital Lumens, the leader in intelligent LED lighting systems, today announced the ability to monitor non-lighting loads via LightRules® Power. The company also announced LightRules Keypad, a wall-mounted lighting management panel, and a new version of LightRules software, version 2.7.
LightRules Power measures and monitors energy usage on any piece of equipment or system, and leverages the intelligent lighting network within a facility to integrate power consumption data from a variety of systems into LightRules energy reports. Using easy-to-install power-monitoring hardware, LightRules Power gathers real-time power and energy data from other circuits and systems. This gives facility managers a single, integrated view of energy use and cost by system, enabling them to make better decisions about resource optimization and utilization.
“The extension of LightRules to monitor systems beyond lighting has been a core element of our vision since the beginning,” said Brian Chemel, CTO and Co-founder of Digital Lumens. “Energy consumption is a strategic lens through which to view and manage operations, and LightRules is the facility-wide network for many of our customers, making it the logical place to add these capabilities.”
“LightRules is a powerful platform for strategically managing energy use, and with a network already in place, adding the ability to monitor other systems and machinery is a simple and efficient way to gain further insight into our systems,” said Frank Tavares, GPE, Atlas Box and Crating. “For example, with better understanding of equipment utilization rates, we can easily forecast our energy use, as well as our capacity to expand our business.” Atlas Box and Crating, working with Digital Lumens’ partner, Groom Energy, has deployed the Digital Lumens Intelligent LED Lighting System, including LightRules, in multiple facilities.
LightRules Keypad is a wall-mounted device that provides additional convenience and safety benefits for Digital Lumens customers, allowing facility managers to update lighting settings across an entire Digital Lumens intelligent lighting network using up to eight unique lighting ‘profiles.’ It can also be used to issue an ‘all-on’ command for emergency lighting needs. Keypad uses a Power-over-Ethernet (POE) connection for easy installation across a range of commercial and industrial facilities.
LightRules Power and LightRules Keypad require LightRules 2.7, all of which are available today.
