Retail Chain Claire’s Slashes Energy Bill by Controlling Smart Lights Over Standard Cable

Serving another reminder that IoT lighting does not have to entail cutting edge wireless systems or fancy new Ethernet cabling, fashion and accessories retail chain Claire’s has slashed energy consumption in a section of a warehouse by connecting new LED lights to data-based controls via existing standard electrical wires. The warehouse in Birmingham, England has deployed powerline communication (PLC) technology from Chepstow, Wales-based enModus to reduce electricity use by 96% compared to the previous lights. The savings come not just from the new batten-style LED luminaires but also from enModus’ intelligent system called Wattwave, which monitors and controls individual lights from a central hub, all through conventional power cables supporting an Internet of Things (IoT) connection to lights in the ceiling ranging in height from around 9–46 ft. The UK’s LED By Vision provided the lights. https://www.ledsmagazine.com/
