wireless technology portfolio provides superior results compared to
competitive “one size fits all” wireless systems.
– April 22, 2013 – Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) will be
demonstrating its industry-leading portfolio of wireless lighting
controls at LIGHTFAIR® International 2013, April 23-25, in
Philadelphia. The booth will feature four distinct indoor and outdoor
wireless technologies, allowing attendees to learn first-hand about the
features and benefits of each technology and determine the best options
to meet their lighting control goals.
“Wireless networking technology can now provide control solutions to
achieve energy savings and improve quality of lighting in diverse
applications,” said Steve Lydecker, Acuity Brands Lighting Senior Vice
President of Technology. “Whether it is managing roadway lighting
assets for entire municipalities, enabling enhanced occupant
experiences in covered parking structures, optimizing industrial
lighting operation independent of circuiting, or allowing simple
classroom and office energy retrofits – wireless lighting control
systems are providing solutions across a wide range of challenging
Just as modern mobile devices require multiple wireless options based on distance and speed – 3G for connecting to distant cell towers, Wi-Fi for connecting to home and office networks or Bluetooth® for nearby connections – so too do lighting systems. A broad portfolio of wireless solutions is required to meet the needs of different applications.
“Our wireless technologies are impacting the way we manage and control
lighting in profound new ways,” said Lydecker. “For example, our ROAM®
streetlight monitoring system is critical to identifying street and
parking light outages. Through smart LED fixture retrofits in parking
garages and industrial applications, Adura® mesh technology allows
customers to achieve energy savings of up to 70 percent. Our nWiFi™
solution overlays on the existing computer network in office scenarios
for easy implementation, and it can be connected to mobile
applications so lights can be turned on or off remotely. And our RDT
technology allows for simple and cost-effective retrofit of classrooms
and private offices using battery operated sensors and energy
harvesting switches to provide control solutions without any wiring
The entire portfolio of wireless technology will be featured at
LIGHTFAIR® International in the Acuity Brands booth #801 from April 23
– 25, 2013. You can also visit www.acuitybrands.com/wireless to learn
