Where the combination of these two technologies will take us in the outdoor domain is very exciting indeed.
Holland, MI (PRWEB) January 24, 2012
TwistHDM, the parking industry’s leader in wireless lighting controls, today announced the exclusive alliance of their LimeLight control technology integrated with Philips Outdoor LED luminaires.
“After evaluating numerous tier one LED manufacturers, our team found the Philips reputation as the leader in luminaire technology, coupled with the direction of their overall LED portfolio, to be extremely attractive,” says Lee Eilers, President of TwistHDM. “Parking garage owners and operators will now benefit from the latest enhancements of LED luminaires in combination with wireless controls, which catapults both technologies to an extreme level of performance.”
LimeLight’s control system will manage the Philips luminaires through its Zigbee-based wireless control technology. The LimeLight radio, consisting of a 0-10V variable driver, automatically adjusts each luminaire’s light output based on the amount of natural light during the day, while leveraging motion sensing functionality in the evening hours. “The ability to perfectly calibrate the facility throughout the 24-hour cycle is the true power of the system,” says Pat Burel, Director of Technical Services at TwistHDM. “In balance with the substantial energy savings, the safety of the parking patron is also a key driver in the development of the algorithms. Our ability to ignite an entire floor or flat lot area to full light output with clear line-of-sight visibility is a key feature of the system.” The system is fully web-enabled, providing all grouping, scheduling, energy reporting, and immediate email notifications of any outlier activity.
“We are very excited to align with TwistHDM and their LimeLight technology as a key enhancement to Philips LED solutions,” says Chuck Havers, General Manager of Philips Outdoor Products. “The combination of intelligent lighting control with high performance LED technology provides our customers with a total solid-state solution that encompasses energy conservation, customer specific lighting environments, and long-term sustainable solutions. When you think about the performance capabilities of our LED technology, coupled with LimeLight’s ability to lower energy costs by an additional 50% or more, the economics and payback are a powerful value proposition.”
LimeLight has enjoyed rapid success since its launch in early 2009, serving a broad range of clientele in the university, municipal, corporate, and private-owner markets. “The functionality of LimeLight today is just the first round of value that the technology will bring to the Philips portfolio of LED luminaires,” says Eilers. “Where the combination of these two technologies will take us in the outdoor domain is very exciting indeed.”
