  Luminaires Into Networked, Sensor-Equipped Fixtures

   Initial Partner Plexus to Provide Design and Manufacturing Expertise to
              Further Build Out Light Sensory Networks Worldwide

Business Wire

PHILADELPHIA -- April 23, 2013

Sensity Systems, the pioneer of Light Sensory Networks, today outlined its
Lighting Manufacturer Partner (LMP) program where partners will be able to
integrate Sensity’s NetSense platform into other LED outdoor or warehouse
luminaires. Teaming with electronics manufacturing services company Plexus
(NASDAQ: PLXS), companies that join Sensity’s program will be able to design
and install Sensity’s NetSense technology into their own fixtures, enabling a
Light Sensory Network (LSN) to be created and used by their customers.

“Demand for smart, networked objects that can provide valuable information
about a certain location is growing. Light owners are already seeing the value
of adding these capabilities to their luminaires during the conversion
process,” said Hugh Martin, chairman and CEO of Sensity Systems. “With our
lighting manufacturer partner program, lighting companies will be able to
quickly and easily adapt their product line to offer this technology and
ensure their customers can use this technology, regardless of their choice of
fixture style.”

As a part of today’s news, Plexus Corp., The Product Realization Company, has
teamed with Sensity as its first electronics manufacturing services (EMS)
partner to help make the LMP program a reality. Plexus is the industry leader
in servicing mid-to-low volume, higher complexity customer programs. With
their unique Product Realization Value Stream services model and skilled
workforce, Plexus tailors innovative engineering and manufacturing solutions
to meet stringent customer demands.

“The next stage of technological evolution will center on enabling the world
around us to gather and analyze data in real time—and then use that data to
improve how we work, live and play,” said Dean Foate, chairman, president and
CEO of Plexus. “Sensity has created the technology to make this a reality.
With their NetSense platform and our commitment to customer service excellence
and experience with complex product realization solutions, lighting companies
will be able to take advantage of this trend and quickly get value-added
fixtures to market.”

“Companies have struggled with how to deploy sensor networks cost-effectively;
with our NetSense platform, LSNs are now a viable option for any
organization,” added Ron Goodall, vice president of manufacturing and
operations at Sensity. “Our components are ‘Made in America’ certified, so our
partners can be assured they are getting high quality sensors that will work
in most LED fixtures. Light owners will now be able to take advantage of an
LSN without changing to a different lighting style.”

A Light Sensory Network

An LSN is a digital sensor network that takes advantage of LED lighting
conversions to improve energy efficiency and transform light owners’
luminaires into strategic assets. With Sensity’s NetSense platform, LED
luminaires become sensor-equipped, solid-state, smart devices capable of
capturing and transmitting sensory big data from the surrounding environment.
There is a wide variety of areas where an LSN can be useful, from public
safety and weather monitoring, to parking management and retail analytics.
