Date Announced: 26 Jun 2009 BELLEVUE, WA –- Lagotek Corporation, a developer of residential and commercial building automation systems, today announced an agreement with Advanced Control Technologies (ACT), a leader in developing wired and wireless residential and commercial control products.Under the agreement, Lagotek will integrate ACT’s StandAlone and controlLED LED tubes into Lagotek’s new Building Intelligence System (BIS), designed to manage commercial lighting, HVAC, and motorized window coverings for maximum energy efficiency, with an emphasis on providing highly efficient and durable LED lighting control to small and medium sized commercial applications.“It has long been accepted that LED lighting will one day be the new standard for commercial and residential lighting because of its great efficiencies and long life,” said Eugene Luskin, CEO, Lagotek. “LEDs are 60% more efficient than fluorescent tubes and they last at least five times longer. ACT’s approach is to provide an easy retrofit model which fits perfectly into Lagotek’s wireless system design. We have not seen a more efficient lighting product that is ready for market.”“This partnership helps both companies create awareness for the benefits of LED lighting,” said Gary Colip, CEO, ACT. “Our StandAlone and controlLED Lites are a direct replacement for existing fluorescent tubes and provide a very friendly and attractive light source in addition to reducing heat (LEDs do not use the heat generating ballasts needed with from fluorescent lights). With Lagotek, we will be able to include dimming controls that further reduce energy consumption and make daylight harvesting and other multi-system advantages possible by combining motorized window coverings, lighting and climate control.”About LagotekFounded in 2005, Lagotek Corporation develops, markets, and supports residential and commercial building automation systems based upon patent pending, and company-owned intellectual property.
