  • LumaWatt Pro Connected Lighting System powered by Enlighted allows enterprise customers to take advantage of the system’s advanced LED lighting technologies and wireless sensing capabilities to acquire actionable, granular data on lighting energy performance, space utilization, real time location services and building system integration. The simplified system delivers a highly advanced Internet of Things (IoT) solution to gain operational efficiencies that go beyond lighting. This connected lighting and sensor solution for indoor and outdoor spaces is ideal for large commercial offices, industrial/manufacturing spaces, retail stores and healthcare facilities.
  • ConnectWorks Connected Lighting System powered by CIMCON, which provides cities, utilities, departments of transportation and universities with simple, easy-to-manage, interactive solutions for outdoor street, roadway and utility lighting applications. End-users gain the ability to monitor and control their lighting infrastructure in real-time, while creating a scalable wireless ecosystem that can integrate with other smart grid platforms and key city services. The system provides asset management and real-time fixture status including automated fault detection and notifications for efficient maintenance.

Eaton’s low-voltage solutions for connected buildings include:

  • Distributed Low Voltage Power (DLVP) system that blends the benefits of both AC and DC power distribution, reducing installation labor by up to 40 percent and total installed cost of an LED lighting and controls project by up to 20 percent, while providing a completely flexible and electrically efficient solution. The system is designed for applications with repeated and matching configurations, such as schools, private and open offices, conference rooms, corridors/halls and stairwells.
  • A collaboration with Cisco and its Digital Ceiling Framework, the Power over Ethernet (PoE) Connected System powered by Cisco is an enterprise system that passes power and data over one cable, harmonizing building control systems. The system is ideal for a new building or major building-wide renovation including those wanting a high-tech campus and building-level analytics, such as data centers, large scale offices, educational and healthcare environments.

Eaton’s solutions for connected homes include:

  • Eaton’s Halo RL56 Wireless LED Downlight, which provides the lifestyle that modern technology can offer to home buyers and owners. The complete light-emitting diode Baffle-Trim Module installs in 5-inch and 6-inch aperture recessed downlights and when paired with a Zigbee-based system, the product provides smooth continuous dimming, white tuning from 2700 Kelvin (K) to 5000K, scheduling, grouping, geo-fencing, automations and remote access. The downlight works with both the Wink and Samsung SmartThings platforms, as well as Alexa via these platforms.
  • Eaton’s MS180BT Bluetooth-enabled motion sensor allows users to control outdoor security lighting from the convenience of a smart device. Adjust motion sensitivity and duration settings, photocell sensitivity, or control a fixture manually without touching a light switch. This motion sensor comes with a free app for iOS and Android devices and is compatible with any LED or incandescent fixture utilizing standard ½-inch threading.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
