Enlighted Unveils Fifth Generation Smart Sensor
Print Article Contributed by BSM Staff

SUNNYVALE, CA -- Enlighted, a provider of Internet of Things solutions for commercial buildings, has unveiled its fifth-generation smart sensor, its most powerful and smallest sensor yet.

Engineered with insight from installations in more than 200 million square feet of buildings that have collected of terabytes of data, it features a 32-bit ARM processor with enhanced processing and memory capacity and offers out of the box future-proofing with unparalleled levels of upgradability.

It is the first IoT-Ready Profile 1 compliant IoT sensor on the market.

The 5th-generation sensor is the only IoT sensor for commercial real estate that provides an upgrade path matching the cadence of building infrastructure upgrades. Through the powerful 32-bit ARM processor and its expanded memory, the sensor has the compute power required to handle years of feature and security advancements through automatic remote software upgrades. This allows building owners to unlock new capabilities as IoT technology and use cases advance.

The sensor is also the first smart building sensor to feature easy hardware upgradability in the field, so customers can remove and replace the sensor with a new one during the lighting fixture’s 15- to 20-year life cycle. Its small size enables it to be housed in a separate carrier sleeve, which allows toolless replacement without disturbing the light fixture or ceiling tiles.

“The worlds of technology and building infrastructures move at vastly different speeds and with differing requirements,” said Joe Costello, CEO at Enlighted. “In order to bridge these differences, it is essential that smart building technology is not only easy to adopt by the building community but offers flexible upgrade paths that ensure longevity for the building occupants.”

Enlighted’s powerful sensor is also available in multiple upgradable configurations. This makes it easy for customers to select the capabilities and cost that make sense for their current project – whether it is advanced lighting control, additional energy management features or a full suite of IoT applications – and add features through future software updates.

Enlighted IoT offers the full IoT data platform with apps for real time location services, building occupancy and usage analysis, along with support for third party apps and data. Enlighted Connected features a connected lighting solution with lighting profiles, energy measurement and occupancy information for HVAC control.

Working closely with the IoT-Ready Alliance and co-founding member Tridonic, the new sensor meets the IoT-Ready draft specification, which defines a standard communications interface between the sensor and driver for lighting control, driver status and energy consumption information, as well as mechanical sensor mounting specifications in luminaires.

Designed to change everything, Enlighted provides the world's most advanced digital sensor and analytics platform for smarter buildings
