Daintree Networks launches wireless lighting control solution at Lightfair

May 18, 2010
Date Announced: 18 May 2010 Daintree Networks, Inc., a leading provider of innovative wireless lighting control and energy management solutions, launched their Wireless Lighting Control Solution (WLCS) at Lightfair today. Daintree has created an architecture and solution that enables the broad adoption of powerful wireless mesh network systems in commercial buildings. The WLCS contains core intellectual property and proven methods designed to ensure system reliability and performance, together with automated commissioning tools that speed and simplify the wireless commissioning process. Daintree is clearing a path for lighting and control system providers, as well as control device manufacturers, to deliver on the wireless promise—dramatically lower installation and commissioning expenses as well as the freedom to scale these systems reliably. “Daintree is approaching the industry from a unique partnership perspective,” said Danny Yu, Daintree CEO. “Our expertise is in enabling wireless communications, and in simplifying the installation, commissioning and management of lighting controls and energy management applications. Those partners and customers who are experts in things like sensors, switches, ballasts, and lighting fixtures can use our solution to wirelessly enable their products and open exciting business opportunities. We work closely with them to help them bring robust wireless solutions to market quickly.” Daintree’s solution ensures interoperability through the use of the ZigBee® networking open standard. Open standards provide many benefits including lower cost components and interoperability with other standards-based building automation systems and components. “Interoperability is a key to our solution,” said Yu. “With the WLCS, Company A’s ballasts will be compatible with Company B’s switches and Company C’s sensors. This provides specifiers and end-users with the ultimate in choice and flexibility when it comes to selecting their wireless lighting control solution. It also allows manufacturers to enter the lucrative lighting control retrofit market without having to create a full suite of devices and controls.” Daintree will be performing demonstrations of the WLCS at Lightfair 2010 in Las Vegas (Booth 2631).
