Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) introduces the SmartCast Intelligence Platform™, the first intuitive lighting system to leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) to deliver smart building solutions through a combination of hardware, software and services. The breakthrough platform combines Cree's industry leading SmartCast® Power over Ethernet (PoE) LED lighting network with the company’s innovative analytics software to transform lighting and sensor data into actionable insights. The integrated solution provides immediate energy and space utilization recommendations that lower maintenance costs to improve productivity.
“LED technology is the standard for lighting installations and the Cree SmartCast Intelligence Platform™ solution demonstrates our ability to harness the power of this technology to go beyond illumination and energy savings to make buildings and the people in them more efficient and productive,” said Daniel Castillo, Cree president, lighting. “The platform combines intelligent LED lighting fixtures, integrated sensors, and our new software analytics tool, SmartCast Advisor™, to deliver on the promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) and improve the spaces in which we work and live.”
SmartCast Advisor™, the first analytics application available on the SmartCast Intelligence Platform, monitors buildings via the SmartCast PoE lighting network, which is currently installed in a number of large customer sites. The application collects data and drives insights immediately upon installation. With the SmartCast Advisor application, building operators can repurpose underutilized space to optimize the productivity within their buildings.
“The SmartCast Advisor™ application is the next step in Cree’s commitment to accelerating the adoption of advanced lighting controls and creating an open building intelligence platform that’s future-ready and easy to use,” continued Castillo. “The application is the first of its kind to extract the value of big data from a lighting network, and is in keeping with Cree’s commitment to a better light experience.”
Cree’s PoE Lighting network is available on the SmartCast Intelligence Platform today. The SmartCast Advisor software application is now available in a limited release.
