Smart building control and management system maker Daintree Networks, Los Altos, Calif., has formed an affiliate partnership with UC Davis' California Lighting Technology Center (CLTC) with the goal of advancing lighting controls. Daintree and CLTC will collaborate on efforts to raise awareness about the benefits of networked lighting controls.
The company said its partnership with CLTC will demonstrate how open standards-based communications and controls can simplify the integration process for commercial buildings to meet California's building energy efficiency goals.
“The adoption of lighting control technology is the first step to creating smart buildings, which goes beyond lighting and includes thermostats, electrical plugs, etc.,” said Daintree Networks CEO Danny Yu, in a release. “Daintree is providing the ControlScope wireless networked, open standards-based energy management and monitoring solution for lighting control. This will allow the CLTC to demonstrate the ease of system integration and illustrate energy efficiency gains through intelligent data analytics. We look forward to collaborating with the CLTC team to advance awareness of technology that helps California, and the rest of the world, to simply and effectively comply with as well as exceed regional energy regulations.”
Daintree's ControlScope is an open standards-driven control, monitoring, and optimization solution for building operators. Daintree's Enterprise Internet of Things, or E-IoT approach to controls uses sensors to also monitor other conditions such as air quality, humidity, building security and more that comprise the networked ecosystem of an organization.
CLTC is a not-for-profit research, development and demonstration facility dedicated to accelerating the development and commercialization of next-generation, energy-efficient lighting and daylighting technologies.
