Lutron Electronics demonstration fresh control abilities at the Light + Building show in Frankfurt. Being launched is a new concept called Enterprise Vue, a new lighting and shading control and management platform for corporate and university campuses.
Enterprise Vue is designed to give facilities managers real-time control of multiple buildings, whether they are all on one campus or scattered around the world using Lutron’s Quantum control system.
Lutron is also showcasing its other innovations in lighting, blinds and temperature control solutions for commercial, hospitality and residential applications, including Energi Savr Node, described as the world’s first DALI-2 certified lighting control product; the new Pico four-button RF wireless control for easy retrofittable scene control and its tunable white applications where the colour of light can be changed from warm white to cool, independently of brightness, using two separate personal controls, a graphical user interface, or automatically over time.
“At Lutron, we believe that people are more productive, comfortable, secure and happy when they are working, studying or living in the right environment,” says David Ribbons, senior sales director for Europe and Africa at Lutron Electronics. “Our innovations at this year’s Light + Building, such as our Enterprise Vue platform for corporate and university campuses, and Energi Savr Node, the world’s first DALI-2 certified lighting control product, underscore our commitment to creating the right environment for any smart building application with Lutron’s intuitive and intelligent technologies.”
Quantum is Lutron’s flagship lighting control and energy management system for commercial buildings, providing management by tying together a complete line of lighting controls, motorised window blinds, digital ballasts, LED drivers and sensors under one software umbrella. Lutron says Quantum is suitable for new-build or retrofit applications and can scale from a single area to a whole building.
The new Enterprise Vue software platform leverages the IoT to deliver intuitive and immediately actionable multi-building management dashboards, allowing facilities managers to see, interpret and act on data for multiple buildings that use Quantum systems, at an enterprise level.
The dashboards cover energy usage, alerts and space utilisation. Facilities managers can navigate through buildings with a user-friendly visual interface and upload their own custom maps and images to personalise their navigation.
Dave adds, “Any enterprise or educational body that has multiple buildings equipped with Quantum systems, and wants to manage them and view building-level data from a single interface, will benefit from Enterprise Vue – from a local college with two buildings located in the same area, to large corporate accounts with a myriad of buildings around the world operating 24/7.”
Control solutions can be tailored based on the way each space is used and occupants’ individual preferences. Typical examples include simple occupancy control in corridors, staircases and storage areas, fully adjustable lighting control in meeting rooms and conference areas, shading solutions to maximise views while minimising glare and heat gain, and personal control for office spaces and study cubicles.
