RAB Lighting today introduced Lightcloud, a commercial wireless lighting control system and service fully developed and supported by RAB. Designed from the ground up to be the most intuitive, advanced and secure networked control system on the market, Lightcloud removes the barriers to implementing lighting controls, delivering energy
efficiency and savings. System design and configuration is uncomplicated, installing the components is straightforward for any licensed electrician, and end users can operate everything from the convenience of a smartphone, tablet or computer.
"Lightcloud is a compelling combination of software and hardware engineering that changes the lighting control landscape," said Ross Barna, CEO of RAB Lighting. "For years, businesses have been struggling to save money and control their lighting with systems that have been expensive, hard to install, complicated to commission, and difficult to use due to proprietary and complicated control panels. Lightcloud changes all that. It's so accessible that any licensed electrican can quickly install a very affordable system that is controllable from a mobile device using easily understood, quality software."
RAB makes rolling out your lighting control system easy and pain-free by providing full phone-based and agent-assisted configuration support. The whiteglove service delivers an outstanding customer experience, and the lighting control experts at RAB are always just a phone call away if additional help is ever needed. This means no callbacks for contractors and no hassles for end users.
"Lightcloud represents an incredible technical achievement, and, even more importantly, a unique opportunity for our customers to slash energy costs like never before," said Larry Gordon, Chief Revenue Officer for RAB. "We are the first and only company able to offer customers state-of-the art, cloud-based lighting solutions including fixtures and controls. We've leapfrogged much larger industry players."
Lightcloud can cut energy costs from lighting by up to 68%, and with today's government incentives, the system can pay for itself in as little as six months. Lightcloud uses energy measuring, tracking and reporting to help you identify and implement new ways to save.
Lightcloud offers programmable schedules, daylight harvesting, dimming capabilities, occupancy/vacancy sensing, and support for demand response, enabling the ultimate in flexibility without complexity.
In addition, the Lightcloud service comes with a variety of best-in-class concierge services including unlimited tech/user support and commissioning, RAB lighting design services, utility rebate assistance and user management. The system is backed by an unlimited warranty on all hardware for the life of the service agreement.
"Cisco predicts the global Internet of Things market will be $14.4T by 2022*, and Lightcloud plays right into this," continued Mr. Barna. "Businesses want the best technologies, best design, and best business practices to save money and provide better operations."
RAB's world-class team of industrial designers and engineers developed each Lightcloud component to work seamlessly and harmoniously with the extensive RAB line of high performance lighting fixtures, offering customers a complete solution backed by the industry's best warranty and taking the complexity and uncertainty out of lighting controls.
