Global E-Commerce Experts (GEE) were looking to use smart technology within lighting to better understand how their new warehouse was operating. By analyzing illuminance data in real-time, they sought to unlock the insights needed to drive down energy costs wherever and whenever possible.
To achieve their client’s objectives, Aurora Lighting proposed a combination of LEDs with integrated Casambi nodes for wireless connectivity. With this smart lighting solution, GEE could not only gain analytical intelligence for energy saving but take action too.
With the Casambi app, they can independently implement adjustable lighting – such as daylighting – conforming to localized needs and enabling energy saving through optimized use of light throughout the warehouse. Based on Bluetooth Low Energy – the most popular and reliable low-power radio technology found in all modern smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches today – changes can be made at the touch of a button (to which Andy, the CEO, can attest!).
From the orchestration of isolated lighting scenes and luminaire groupings, they can also use the app to build up a multiple-site network if required. And by getting connected, it becomes possible to expand beyond a single application – lighting control – to other exercises such as motion detection and indoor positioning services.
Aurora Lighting also mentioned that their offer of 0% Finance was available for the project to commence without upfront costs. This suited GEE’s overall plan and allowed them to spend the CAPEX on other business investments.
Aurora Lighting proposed their Kayon Ultra LED Highbays, which come with high rack aisle optics with integrated PIR’s and Casambi technology.
