Enlighted Launches 5th-Generation IoT Sensor for Brilliant Buildings™

The new IoT-Ready™-compatible sensor is 10 times more powerful with twice the memory of the previous generation, and features tiered pricing options.

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--()--Enlighted, the leading provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for commercial buildings, continues to drive innovation with its 5th-generation smart sensor. Engineered with insight from installations in more than 200 million square feet of buildings that have collected 10’s of terabytes of data, it is the most powerful and smallest sensor Enlighted has developed. Featuring a 32-bit ARM® processor with enhanced processing and memory capacity, it 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 worlds of technology and building infrastructures move at vastly different speeds and with differing requirements”

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. We’ve created our 5th-generation sensor platform with unprecedented levels of power and upgradability to keep buildings brilliant even as the pace of IoT technology accelerates.”

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.

The sensor platform features a number of enhancements from the previous generation, including advanced lighting features like daylight groups, which support efficient daylight harvesting, and an astronomical clock, which creates advanced lighting schedules based on local sunrise and sunset.

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.

Enlighted’s 5th-generation sensor featuring multiple configurations is commercially available now. To learn more about Enlighted, visit www.enlightedinc.com. Additional information on the IoT-Ready™ Alliance can be found at www.iot-ready.org.
