Lumenergi, a premier provider of energy efficient networked lighting systems, continues to help building managers reduce energy use via a new collaboration with WattStopper, a leading manufacturer of energy-efficient lighting controls.

The major benefit of Lumenergi's open and interoperable dimmable lighting ballasts and control systems is that building managers have the flexibility to mix and match best-in-class technologies to optimize efficiency, cost, comfort and aesthetics, as well as achieve a new level of user experience - all while reducing energy consumption and saving money.

"Lumenergi's versatile lighting technology seamlessly integrates with our control devices, combining the benefits of each company's products," said Jerry Mix, CEO of WattStopper. "Lumenergi's smooth dimming and advanced control capability, combined with our occupancy sensors and daylighting control devices, provide our customers the right level of light only when and where it is needed. Working with Lumenergi helps us offer our customers yet another way of putting a stop to energy waste.

Lumenergi's lighting systems are one of the essential components in sustainable, intelligent buildings, as they offer two-way communications capable of gathering energy usage data minute-by-minute and lamp-by-lamp. Energy savings are monitored and reported in real-time. Building owners and operators can receive email alerts about occurrences such as failed lamps or unusual energy usage, enabling them to reduce maintenance operating costs.

"Lighting solutions in the age of intelligent buildings need to be open solutions. Our solutions eliminate compatibility issues, and simplify design, specification and installation processes," said Michael D'Amour, CEO of Lumenergi. "We believe WattStopper controls are excellent devices and look forward to working together to provide customers with exceptional energy savings."

Lumenergi's patented and interoperable dimming ballasts support multiple voltage inputs, lamp types and configurations, and open standard protocols such as DALI as well as 0-10V with a single part number. Lighting fixture OEMs can build standard light fixtures controllable by a Lumenergi's LMCS Control System or controls from other fine vendors.
