Echelon Expands Presence in Outdoor Lighting With Acquisition of Established Player, Lumewave
|By Business Wire

Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ:ELON), open-interoperable control networking
pioneer for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), announced that it
has acquired Lumewave Inc., a wireless outdoor lighting control system
provider with a strong track record selling its solution to U.S.
municipalities, universities, medical facilities and enterprises.
Echelon will sell the Lumewave products—which include individual
lighting controllers, gateways, and management and maintenance
software—and will incorporate Lumewave’s established sales channels in
North America into its existing channels worldwide. Terms of the
transaction were not disclosed.
“With this acquisition of Lumewave, Echelon is enriching our product
portfolio and sales channels in outdoor lighting control, for both city
street lighting and the compelling market for enterprise and commercial
outdoor lighting,” said Ron Sege, CEO and chairman, Echelon Corp.
“Lumewave’s products, combined with Echelon’s own, will give our
customers tremendous flexibility in controlling their outdoor lighting
assets. The expanded product offerings and sales coverage will enhance
Echelon’s revenue stream and allow us to better address the fast-growing
North American market.”
The outdoor lighting market—which encompasses streetlights as well as
lighting for parking areas, walkways and other outdoor spaces—is growing
significantly. According to the Northeast Group, the market for street
lights with smart controls is forecast to grow from less than 2 million
units today to more than 100 million units in the next 10 years. The
value of installed controls is expected to rise from less than $250
million to more than $10 billion by 2024, with 40 percent of that
investment expected in North America.
Echelon plus Lumewave expand options for outdoor lighting customers
“Echelon’s pioneering leadership in control networking technologies, and
its strong success in outdoor lighting markets outside the U.S., make
this an ideal match for our wireless outdoor lighting solutions,” said
Mark Keating, president of Lumewave. “Adding Lumewave’s proven radio
frequency (RF) solution and our established North American channels to
Echelon’s capabilities in wired control systems will enable more
customers to be served more quickly.”
Lumewave’s standards-based wireless solutions for outdoor lighting will
continue to be available through its established manufacturer’s rep
channel and will now also be sold through Echelon’s direct sales and
manufacturer reps and integrators in the U.S. The combined product
portfolio will target streetlighting and other outdoor lighting
installations, such as parking lots and structures, university and
corporate campuses, hospitals, large retailers such as shopping malls
and auto dealerships, parks and recreational facilities.
Lumewave has established a presence in a number of high-profile
locations in the U.S., including the University of California campuses
at Davis, Irvine and Santa Barbara; the California State University at
Fullerton; the city of San Francisco; and the VacaValley (Calif.)
Hospital. The benefits of Lumewave adaptive LED street and area lighting
solutions have been promoted by SPEED (State Partnership for Energy
Efficient Demonstrations), a program supported by the California Energy
Commission and managed through the California Institute for Energy and
Environment (CIEE). The cited benefits include saving energy, cutting
electricity and maintenance costs, and providing better-quality lighting
to enhance safety and aesthetics.
Lumewave provides innovative, standards-based wireless solutions for
control and monitoring of outdoor lighting. Its customers include cities
and municipalities responsible for outdoor lighting (roads, streets,
parks, etc.) as well as commercial entities (e.g., car dealerships, mall
operators) responsible for outdoor lighting, typically parking lots and
parking structures. Customers use Lumewave solutions to set lighting
dimming/on/off schedules, monitor light fixture operation and health,
and measure and control energy usage. Privately held Lumewave has its
headquarters in Sacramento, Calif. More information is available at www.lumewave.com.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years?
This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
