Company recognized for outstanding innovation

Cavet's LumiSmart ILC

We are thrilled Cavet Technologies has received this recognition from important Canadian institution.

Cavet Technologies Inc. today announced it is a winner of the 2010 Innovations@Work Awards. Cavet Technologies was recognized for its innovation of LumiSmart ILC, an intelligent lighting controller and the company’s flagship product.

The awards, presented by Rogers and PROFIT Magazine, celebrate the ideas that move Canada forward. Open to Canadian companies with up to 20 employees, the awards recognize small businesses for their outstanding innovation. The 2010 program marks the 4th annual Innovations@Work Awards.

"We are thrilled Cavet Technologies has received this recognition from important Canadian institution," said Albert Behr, President and CEO for Cavet Technologies. “While we are proud to produce a product in Canada that serves the world, it is an honour to receive such acknowledgement from our home territory.”

LumiSmart ILC is the first of a new class of Smart Grid-enabled lighting controllers that provide microprocessor-driven adaptive control of lighting circuits to reduce power consumption while providing an instant 30 per cent or more power reduction without replacing any existing lamps, ballasts or fixtures. LumiSmart ILC also helps reduce carbon emissions by actively reducing energy consumption at the source, and therefore minimizes strain on the electrical grid. This decrease in carbon footprint results in a reduction in greenhouses gases released into the atmosphere.
