Cree, a lading LED company, has introduced a self-programming wireless lighting control system that reduced lighting energy consumption up to 70%!
With that 70% energy use reduction, a representative of Cree told CleanTechnica that this wireless lighting control system comes to “nearly half the cost of traditional lighting controls systems.”
“Commercial lighting customers have resisted installing traditional lighting controls because of excess cost and complexity, and the majority of those who have installed controls stop using them as intended after the first year because they’re difficult to maintain,” said Norbert Hiller, executive vice president, lighting. “Cree SmartCast™Technology eliminates these barriers to adoption and delivers the enormous benefit of significantly greater energy cost savings, allowing customers to finally realize the promise of lighting controls.”
“Featuring Cree’s innovative OneButton™ Setup, luminaires enabled with SmartCast™ Technology create their own secure network, learn about their environment and form groups to maximize savings, all with the push of a single button,” the Cree news release noted. “SmartCast Technology eliminates additional design time, wires and set up time often associated with controls systems to provide the simplest controls system available.”
Cree SmartCast Technology is currently available in the US and Canada.
