Daintree Networks adds advanced power metering features to ControlScope platform

Date Announced: 19 Jan 2012

-- Integrated Solution Dramatically Reduces Costs of Energy Management for Commercial Buildings

Mountain View, Calif. –– Daintree Networks, Inc., the leading provider of intelligent wireless lighting controls for commercial buildings, today announced the addition of low-cost metering capabilities to its solution through the innovative new Pervasive Metering feature. Part of the company’s award-winning ControlScope™ wireless platform, Pervasive Metering enables customers to easily add standard Modbus® power meters to measure and visualize power usage, reducing the added cost of a dedicated power meter infrastructure.

“Commercial buildings are seeking integrated energy solutions that can provide value without duplicating costs, and Pervasive Metering meets this need,” said Danny Yu, CEO, Daintree Networks. “By taking advantage of our robust building-wide network, customers can now easily bring together lighting controls and advanced metering, leading to reduced costs and greater sustainability.”

Typical power meter solutions require a dedicated – and often costly – infrastructure to collect, collate, visualize and report on the energy data collected in individual meters. Now customers of Daintree’s ControlScope wireless lighting controls platform can connect power meters using the Modbus standard to Daintree’s Wireless Area Controllers (WACs) within the building. In addition to managing and controlling lighting, the WACs collect data from the meters, and send it to the ControlScope Manager online application for visualization and reporting. Cost-saving decisions then can be made based on more comprehensive data.

Pervasive Metering provides accurate energy measurement data for lighting usage as well as any other metered circuit. By utilizing a single infrastructure and software interface for both lighting controls and power meter data collection, the ControlScope solution dramatically reduces the cost of investing in energy management.
ControlScope is the industry’s first standards-based, wireless lighting controls solution, and uses intelligent software and wireless networking to automatically control lights and other energy loads. Installed across millions of square feet of commercial and industrial building space, ControlScope provides facilities with comprehensive energy management and smart grid tools while saving up to 70 percent of lighting energy costs.

The Pervasive Metering feature is available now with ControlScope version 2.2.
