Lutron Launches New Lighting Control and Energy Management Platform, Making Control of Multiple Buildings on Multiple Sites Easier
Entire campuses. Anywhere in the world. One intuitive interface. The new Enterprise Vue platform gives facilities managers more control than ever through Lutron’s Quantum system
Lutron Electronics, leader in lighting controls and shading solutions, is demonstrating its commitment to making smarter buildings at the Light + Building trade show (stand 4.1 – C61) in Frankfurt, where it is exhibiting a number of innovations that promise to bring significant benefits to customers. At this year’s show, the company unveils Enterprise Vue, its new lighting and shading control and management platform for corporate and university campuses. Enterprise Vue gives facilities managers real-time control of multiple buildings – whether they are all on one campus or scattered around the world – using Lutron’s Quantum control system.
At Light + Building, Lutron is also showcasing its other innovations in lighting, blinds and temperature control solutions for commercial, hospitality and residential applications, including Energi Savr Node – the world’s first DALI-2 certified lighting control product; the new Pico four-button RF wireless control for easy retrofittable scene control; and its tunable white applications where the colour of light can be changed from warm white to cool, independently of brightness, using two separate personal controls, a graphical user interface, or automatically over time.
“At Lutron, we believe that people are more productive, comfortable, secure and happy when they are working, studying or living in the right environment,” said David Ribbons, Senior Sales Director for Europe and Africa at Lutron Electronics. “Our innovations at this year’s Light + Building, such as our Enterprise Vue platform for corporate and university campuses, and Energi Savr Node, the world’s first DALI-2 certified lighting control product, underscore our commitment to creating the right environment for any smart building application with Lutron’s intuitive and intelligent technologies,” Ribbons added.
Quantum is Lutron’s flagship lighting control and energy management system for commercial buildings, providing total light management by tying together the most complete line of lighting controls, motorised window blinds, digital ballasts, LED drivers and sensors under one software umbrella. Quantum is ideal for new-build or retrofit applications and can easily scale from a single area to an entire building.
And now Quantum is more powerful than ever. Lutron’s new Enterprise Vue software platform leverages the IoT to deliver intuitive and immediately actionable multi-building management dashboards, allowing facilities managers to see, interpret and act on data for multiple buildings that use Quantum systems, at an enterprise level. The dashboards cover energy usage, alerts and space utilisation. Facilities managers can easily navigate through buildings with an extremely user-friendly visual interface and upload their own custom maps and images to personalise their navigation.
Lutron’s Dave Ribbons said: “Any enterprise or educational body that has multiple buildings equipped with Quantum systems, and wants to manage them and view building-level data from a single interface, will benefit from Enterprise Vue – from a local college with two buildings located in the same area, to large corporate accounts with a myriad of buildings around the world operating 24/7.”
Because lighting is not a one-size-fits-all solution, personalised lighting environments are essential to facilities managers and occupants of high-performance buildings. Flexible, centralised control ensures you can deliver the right lighting environment you need inside each space. Control solutions can be tailored based on the way each space is used and occupants’ individual preferences. Typical examples include simple occupancy control in corridors, staircases and storage areas, fully adjustable lighting control in meeting rooms and conference areas, shading solutions to maximise views while minimising glare and heat gain, and personal control for office spaces and study cubicles.
