Digital Lumens’ systems make buildings intelligent, collecting data that can help companies be more productive, use space more efficiently, manage energy costs and gain insight into business operations across the entire enterprise. Its open API allows the company’s LightRules software platform to seamlessly integrate with third-party building management systems and provides access to an array of real-time sensor data and controls—including occupancy, temperature and energy use—from solutions such as Schneider Electric’s SmartStruxure solution.
As part of the partnership, Schneider Electric will add support for Digital Lumens’ sensors and software to its SmartStruxure offering, using the stream of data that LightRules generates to optimize and improve other building subsystems like HVAC, security, energy management and life safety.
“Our Silicon Valley Innovation Center was created to work more closely with startups, like Digital Lumens, to identify and develop energy management innovations through IoT technologies that add new value for customers using Schneider Electric’s solution portfolio,” said Paul Campbell, Vice President, Innovation, Schneider Electric.
“By working together to leverage connected technologies, we can tap into new capabilities that provide our customers with enhanced energy management and automation solutions that improve efficiency, sustainability, reliability and safety.”
