LED fixture manufacturer Amerlux, Fairfield, N.J., and Sensity Systems, Sunnyvale, Calif., the manufacturer of Light Sensory Networks (LSNs), have entered into a lighting manufacturer partnership. Amerlux will integrate Sensity’s NetSense technology with motion, photonic, energy, and temperature sensors into their exterior LED lighting solutions. This partnership will provide Amerlux customers worldwide with a lighting application platform that can generate valuable data to better understand and manage their physical environment for greater productivity, efficiency, and security.
Chuck Campagna, president and CEO of Amerlux, said in the press release, “As a result of partnering with Sensity, we are opening up an entirely new area in lighting applications and services for our company that goes far beyond lighting controls by offering an array of third-party applications on our SmartSite LSN products that will include video-based security and public safety, parking management, predictive maintenance and more.”
In the future, Amerlux customers with Sensity-enabled LED luminaires will be able to deploy these applications and services to enhance security by extending the security perimeter; provide advanced parking services for both drivers and parking operators; provide retail analytics with data gathered anywhere outdoor lights are placed; and monitor an enterprise or university campus for CO2 emissions, seismic activity, carbonmonoxide, pollutants, humidity or UV radiation.
