Acuity Brands Lighting and Silver Spring Networks have agreed to develop an intelligent lighting platform together to help utilities, cities, and large campus operators to upgrade aging lighting infrastructure and establish a path to additional smart city applications and services.
The first step of the relationship will see the two companies jointly develop a networked street light control solution that integrates Silver Spring’s standards-based Gen5 IPv6 networking platform and Streetlight.Vision smart city management software with Acuity Controls’ DTL DLL Elite intelligent photocontrols so that operators can monitor and control networked streetlights.
“This joint development effort brings the strengths of two market leaders together. We are delighted to collaborate with Silver Spring to add to our portfolio of technology to deliver proven, smart lighting control and networking to large-scale lighting operators. We anticipate that these solutions will enable our customers to leverage their smart lighting canopy to easily and cost-effectively deploy additional smart city applications over time,” said Audwin Cash, Vice President of Acuity Controls.
Silver Spring Networks has delivered more than 21.5 million critical infrastructure devices worldwide, including selection for nearly 500,000 street lights in what is believed to be the world’s largest smart street lights program in Miami and South Florida. Silver Spring also connects critical infrastructure in iconic global cities such as Chicago, Copenhagen, Glasgow, Melbourne, Mexico City, Paris, San Francisco, Sao Paulo, Singapore, and Washington, D.C., among others.
