Sydney-based LED startup enLighten Australia has launched its wireless smartsense controls system for industrial LEDs.
The smartsense controls offer intelligent control over industrial and commercial back of house areas, such as undercover car park entrances, plant rooms and warehouses – parts of the market which have been left behind in the race for technological innovation and smart controls uptake.
Meanwhile, traditionally architecturally lit spaces, including building facades, commercial office fitouts, meeting rooms or residential houses, already benefit from smart lighting controls.
According to Steve Cahill, enLighten CEO and head of the R&D team, the company worked to minimise the cost and complexity of its technology.
The result is a controls solution that is “stand alone”, not requiring hard wiring. The smartsense controls system is also “set and forget”. A daylight sensor will automatically communicate with the light via a wireless signal, reducing setup complexity.
Smart controls reduce operating costs, improve building flexibility, extend product operating lifetime and deliver additional energy and maintenance savings. These result in a lower total cost of ownership.
According to Steve, the smartsense R&D process was driven by enLighten’s knowledge of the Australian Standards (AS1680), its extensive exposure to car park lighting which exposed high levels of non compliance for car park entry threshold lighting.
