Focal Point and Osram Team Up to Deliver Smart Building Solutions for Commercial Spaces
Chicago, IL February 5, 2018
Focal Point, LLC and Osram are working together to deliver smarter lighting solutions for commercial spaces. Integrating Osram’s Connected Lighting Module (CLM) into a broad range of Focal Point luminaires as part of its Connected Solutions program allows the monitoring and modulating of light, maximizing occupants’ comfort and optimizing energy costs.
“Built on common values of social and environmental responsibility, our synergy has allowed us to develop lighting solutions that create greater operating efficiencies in commercial buildings, combating rising electricity costs and positively contributing to our environment. Our Connected Solutions program also includes several other leading whole building lighting control systems,” said Mike Thornton, Chief Marketing Officer for Focal Point, LLC.
The use of an Osram CLM enables each luminaire to be independently controlled and configured, communicating wirelessly with Osram’s ENCELIUM®, ENCELIUM EDGE™, Daintree Network® and other control systems using the ZigBee® HA communication protocol. Embedding a CLM into Focal Point luminaires creates a seamless integration of lighting and controls, adding value beyond illumination and energy savings. The vast selection of integrated architectural troffers, recessed linear and suspended luminaires help achieve beautiful, harmonious spaces that connect people to their environment. As Focal Point expands its product offering, it plans to integrate Osram’s CLM to allow for whole building lighting management.
The synergy between lighting and the IoT is transforming industries such as real estate and healthcare, creating intelligent building solutions that deliver valuable information. The value of these systems reaches more than specifiers, contractors and building occupants. It empowers building owners and managers to increase efficiencies, optimize performance and deliver more comfortable environments.
