acuity brands inc (AYI) Key Developments

Acuity Brands, Inc. Introduces Series of Fully Integrated LED Lighting and Control Systems

Acuity Brands, Inc. introduced a series of fully integrated LED lighting and control systems. Complete lighting solutions, which utilize compatible luminaires and controls, are designed to work seamlessly as an integrated system making it simpler and more cost-effective to specify, install and commission lighting systems for various applications, including commercial office, parking garages, automotive parking lots, and industrial warehouses. Complete lighting solutions are easier to specify because the entire system comes from one manufacturer, Acuity Brands, which develops each solution to be complete and aligned with the application's specific needs. In addition, Acuity Brands offers A+ Certified where major components of a lighting system are designed, manufactured and tested for interoperability. As part of the certification, initial lumen output, color consistency and dimming levels are factory-calibrated and verified. Acuity Brands will have multiple complete lighting solutions on display at its booth at LIGHTFAIR(R) International at the Javits Convention Center in New York City from May 5th through the 7th, including: Commercial Office: A one stop shop solution for a back-to-front lighting system for a commercial office or similar configuration that includes controls to meet any level of sophistication the lighting project dictates. This innovative, integrated lighting and control solution for commercial office applications combines Lithonia Lighting(R) recessed LED Luminaires featuring eldoLED(R) technology, with award-winning nLight(R) control technology from Acuity Controls. Parking Garage: An Acuity Brands premiere parking garage complete lighting solution brings together high-quality luminaires with wireless controls to provide quality of light, enhanced sense of safety, energy savings and operational efficiency. This solution features the Lithonia Lighting PGX LED garage and WL LED stairwell luminaires networked with XPoint(TM) Wireless from Acuity Controls. Facility managers benefit from easy-operation with programmed zonal control. Different zones can be programmed to respond to movement, time and daylight levels so energy use is minimized when full illumination is not needed. Automotive Parking Lot: Optimizing the lighting on an auto dealership lot with an integrated LED lighting system can help save energy and cut operating costs by up to 75% compared to traditional parking lot lighting. Plus, the enhanced lighting performance and color consistency of a controlled LED lighting system creates crisp, consistent light on the car inventory. This complete lighting solution features the Lithonia Lighting D-Series family of outdoor luminaires paired with the ROAM(R) wireless control system to deliver greater flexibility with zone control, scheduling and full-range dimming control to create optimal lighting. Industrial Warehouse: LED high bay luminaires from Lithonia Lighting, networked with a choice of controls from Acuity Controls and enhanced with daylighting provided by Sunoptics(R) skylights and flexibility provided by RELOC(R) modular wiring, create a complete, integrated system for industrial warehouses. The resulting complete lighting solution reduces energy consumption by as much as 60% when compared to traditional warehouse lighting, and automatically delivers light only when it's needed to enhance energy savings and reduce maintenance without compromising safety. This solution is also flexible, allowing configuration of individual fixtures or lighting zones according to changes in schedules, time of day, seasons or special projects.

Acuity Brands, Inc. Introduces ByteLight Services for Retailers

Retailers eager to more effectively communicate with in-store shoppers can now use LED lighting to do so, as Acuity Brands, Inc. announced the commercial availability of its lighting-based ByteLight(TM) Services for indoor positioning. Lighting-based indoor positioning services take advantage of LED lighting as a vehicle for embedded technology that can assist in the delivery of digital content to shoppers at a retail location who opt into a retailer's loyalty app. These new services support a variety of applications that can boost customer loyalty and revenues for a retailer, while reducing operating expenses. Acuity Brands' new ByteLight Services are currently being piloted with several customers, including a large, national retailer. The ByteLight Services for indoor positioning have allowed the addition of Bluetooth(R) low energy (BLE) technology to the recently licensed capability of the Lumicast(TM) Visible Light Communication (VLC) technology from Qualcomm Atheros, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated. Mobile devices are vastly popular in-store shopping tools, as over 83% of shoppers are using them while in the store to compare prices, look for best offers, or even search for product ratings. ByteLight Services help make the mobile-enabled shopping experience even more tailored, by allowing the retailer to provide offers, product information and assistance into the hands of shoppers based upon their location. These benefits, along with a shopper's ability to be able to quickly navigate to all of the items on their list, can lead to a more satisfying customer experience. In addition to the potential for increased revenue and shopper loyalty, retailers can also benefit from operational savings by using the Services to obtain information that allows them to optimize staffing, efficiently replenish out-of-stock locations, and assess the impact of marketing and merchandising strategies.
