Daintree Networks, Inc, provider of wireless lighting controls solution, and Philips announced an agreement to develop advanced lighting controls products for commercial buildings through the use of open standards such as ZigBee®. This move will help customers avoid vendor lock-in and ensure that their lighting systems are interoperable today and well into the future. Building owners and managers would be given access to a full complement of ZigBee-based products, as well as best-of-breed technologies from the industry leader in LED lighting and the leader in commercial and industrial networked wireless controls. Through this agreement, Philips will work with Daintree Networks to ensure that company products can integrate with Daintree’s software and controllers to create an expanded line of networked, wireless controls solutions.
Every sensor, switch and light fixture becomes part of a large-scale wireless communications network, with bi-directional messaging. With systems that are easy to design and flexible enough to be adapted as the needs of a space change, building owners will be able to adopt full lighting solutions with confidence.
