“This upgrade demonstrates that Redwood Systems continues to innovate in ways that bring tangible benefits for our customers,” said Dave Leonard, CEO of Redwood Systems. “Facility managers now have never-before-available control and data at the per fixture level as well as capabilities that easily monitor and enhance the building environment.”

Redwood Systems, a leader in networked LED lighting controls and building intelligence, today announced an enhanced version of its software that brings several unique sensing and alerting features enabling unparalleled energy savings and insight into building performance.

Redwood’s upgrade, available today, delivers new, advanced capabilities, including:

  • One-Click Daylight Harvesting: Unlike traditional lighting controls, Redwood enables a simple, one-click approach to enable daylighting for entire sections of a building. By providing sensors and controls at each individual fixture, Redwood can maximize energy savings as outside light increases while keeping internal light levels constant so as not to disturb occupants.
  • “Follow Me” Mode: Maximizes energy savings in spaces that require minimal light when unoccupied such as hallways, storage, staircases and data centers to stay at low levels of lighting when unoccupied and then gracefully brighten and dim as people approach and pass by.
  • Multi-Sensor Occupancy Detection: Existing control solutions can trigger unintended light activation in a nearby empty office or conference room when someone passes by in a hallway. Redwood’s extensive sensor network can more accurately determine if motion is simply a passerby or an actual room occupant requiring light activation.
  • Programmable Alerts: Customers can now receive alerts when temperatures exceed a programmable threshold that may affect sensitive equipment (e.g. data center servers) or when there is unauthorized or unexpected motion in any part of the building. These alerts can be delivered in the Redwood Manager dashboard or sent via email.

With the industry’s only power and control platform delivered over networking infrastructure, Redwood Systems provides its customers with the most efficient lighting solutions.

“Redwood's network-based approach to lighting is impressive,” said Ken Sapp, Vice President, Linc EnergyHub at The Linc Group, a Division of ABM Industries. “By turning lighting into a fully digital, web-based platform, Redwood raises control and energy savings capabilities to a new level. And with this upgrade tracking real-time motion, energy, and temperature conditions, Redwood raises the possibilities on how data can be used to continuously improve how buildings are operated and utilized”.

“This upgrade demonstrates that Redwood Systems continues to innovate in ways that bring tangible benefits for our customers,” said Dave Leonard, CEO of Redwood Systems. “Facility managers now have never-before-available control and data at the per fixture level as well as capabilities that easily monitor and enhance the building environment.”
