“We are only within the first year of installation and we are seeing a significant reduction in power consumption compared to the previous lighting systems at our old facility,” said Bill Burke, chief information officer, Starkey Mortgage. “We are very happy with how the simplicity of the Redwood system allows us to control and customize the lighting while saving on energy costs.”

WR Starkey MortgageWith operational costs on the rise, organizations are looking for better ways to maximize building space and increase energy efficiency. WR Starkey Mortgage, LLP, a regional mortgage banker based in Texas, chose CommScope’s Redwood Systems™ to outfit its new headquarters with an intelligent lighting network solution that enables operational cost reductions and achieves sustainability goals.

“We are only within the first year of installation and we are seeing a significant reduction in power consumption compared to the previous lighting systems at our old facility,” said Bill Burke, chief information officer, Starkey Mortgage. “We are very happy with how the simplicity of the Redwood system allows us to control and customize the lighting while saving on energy costs.”

Thanks to the installation of Redwood lighting solutions and a high-efficiency HVAC system in its new headquarters, Starkey Mortgage received the 2013 Mortgage Technology Green Lender Award for using technology to promote sustainable business practices. The lighting solution only required 30 days to install and provided a way for the company to operate with a smaller environmental footprint while realizing a significant reduction in lighting costs when compared to their previous system.

CommScope’s Redwood solutions feature a unique combination of management software, sensor hardware and structured cabling designed to make facilities and IT operations more agile and efficient. A web-based management application controls LED light fixtures and sensors that track motion, temperature and light. These systems can also store the sensor data to give a more accurate depiction of how frequently an office environment is used.   

“Starkey Mortgage is a great example of how an organization can use the network to get more value out of the lighting system,” said Dave Leonard, senior vice president of Redwood Systems, CommScope. “They are not only seeing a great reduction in operating expenses, they are tailoring their work environment to better suit the needs of their employees and create activity notifications for better security.”
