Power management company Eaton today announced a collaboration with
Internet of Things (IoT) leader Enlighted to accelerate the deployment
of advanced sensory networks in commercial and industrial buildings. By
integrating Enlighted's hardware, software, services and broader
capabilities with Eaton's lighting-emitting diode (LED) lighting and
controls portfolio, the two companies aim to dramatically increase the
adoption of connected lighting solutions by providing simplified
solutions that are readily deployable. There is strong synergy between
the lighting industry and the IoT industry, and connected lighting is
one of the fastest and most economical paths to deploying IoT in

"This is a transformational moment for the lighting industry as the
worlds of IoT and lighting are coming together to lay the foundation for
brilliant buildings through connected lighting," said Kraig Kasler,
president, Eaton's Lighting Division. "Lighting systems customers are
demanding sophisticated controls to optimize their energy costs while
looking to give their buildings advanced IoT-based sensory systems.
These systems yield profound insight into a building's operations,
changing the way building owners and operators manage their assets and
With Enlighted's technology directly integrated into Eaton's portfolio,
including products with the company's advanced WaveStream™
LED technology, the LumaWatt Pro Connected Lighting System powered by
Enlighted is designed to deliver a highly advanced connected
lighting solution. Enterprise customers can take advantage of the
advanced IoT capabilities to acquire actionable, granular data on
lighting energy use and performance, space utilization, asset tracking,
HVAC and more. In addition to the LumaWatt Pro line expansion, the
collaboration will allow data from Eaton's lighting controls systems to
be connected to Enlighted's IoT applications, such as spacE (space
utilization) and airE (HVAC optimization).
"Commercial real estate is the largest asset class on the planet. The
foundation for the next generation smart buildings, what we like to call
brilliant buildings, is the connections made through a building's
sensory network," said Joe Costello, chief executive officer, Enlighted.
"The est way today to lay the foundation for brilliant buildings is by
giving a building a sensory system. This is most efficiently achieved
through connected lighting, created by combining advanced IoT
capabilities with leading lighting manufacturers. We are excited about
working on this huge opportunity with Eaton."
In addition to expanding Eaton's LumaWatt Pro, powered by Enlighted
solution set, Eaton will lead the sales and support efforts of
Enlighted's solutions through the North American agent representative
network and expand its own lighting systems portfolio with products
integrating Enlighted's application technology. Enlighted will continue
to develop end customer demand for its world class value-added
applications, its value-added reseller (VAR) network, supporting fixture
partners and additional partnerships in smart building technologies.
Eaton and Enlighted's combined lighting and controls portfolio is listed
on the Design Lights Consortium's (DLC) Network Lighting Controls
Qualified Products List (QPL). The QPL is a new industry resource to
understand, evaluate and compare Networked Lighting Control Systems for
commercial and industrial projects. The QPL also identifies systems
eligible for new financial incentives and rebates from utilities and
energy efficiency programs across North America.
