Utilizing a Powered Gateway...
Digital Control and Highly Efficient LED Illumination...
Today’s lighting requires the ability to switch from a building’s AC power to sources of alternate energy. LightZero’s digital technology not only meets emergency egress lighting requirements but allows switching to numerous sources of back-up power with selectable levels of illumination. This adds features essential for sustainability, net zero construction, and specialized applications.
Controlling a home, office or building’s lighting from the “Cloud” is becoming a necessity, so why would a contemporary lighting technology not include voice control? LightZero has chosen Amazon Alexa as our first voice control interface.
DC powered lighting is lighting’s future and plays a vital role in sustaining our environment. There is no lighting technology on the planet that is more energy efficient or, when compared to AC powered lighting, has as small of a carbon footprint as LightZero.
LightZero not only provides energy monitoring and lighting control from the “Cloud”, but is controllable using BACnet, KNX, DMX, DALI and 0-10 VDC controls. An open architecture allowing industry standard control increases LightZero’s capability for use in an unlimited number of lighting applications.
Our PoEzero technology provides a lighting system that is less expensive, easier to install and provides a significant reduction in a building’s carbon footprint when compared to installations using heavy gauge wire, metal conduit and J-boxes. Category Cable is the wiring method of choice for lighting; using two pair of the eight Cat-6 conductors for every 100 watts of Class-2 power to provide a total of 200 watts of LED illumination at 48 or 56 VDC on a single Cat-6 cable.
LightZero’s PoEzero technology removes PoE nodes and drivers from fixtures, reduces heat in the occupied space, provides efficient centralized AC to DC power conversion and lighting control, delivers 240 Lumens per watt from 100,000 hour LM 80 rated LEDs, removes heavy gauge copper wire, metal conduit and J-boxes from installations and the system provides virtually unlimited lighting control. LightZero reduces the cost for installed lighting and the ongoing operational and maintenance costs.
An increasing number of architects, designers and facility managers utilize research-driven design, recognizing that the illumination of a space can have a measurable influence on the well-being of its occupants. LightZero employs applications and LEDs specifically designed for safe human exposure, allowing the effect of lighting on an individual’s circadian rhythm, health and well-being to be controlled and improved.
LightZero’s use of Class-2 DC power to fixtures and controls (inherently safe per NEC) provides lighting that cannot cause a fire or electrocution. This not only provides a safer environment for the occupant but can add value and reduced insurance costs.
Our Modular Digital Architecture utilizes a Digital Powered Gateway to remotely power and control LED fixtures over Cat-6 Cable. Our PoEzero technology eliminates heavy gauge copper wire, metal conduit and J-boxes from lighting installations, reduces installation costs by over 75%, reduces the carbon footprint of a building’s lighting by more than 80%, decreases HVAC heat load from lighting by at least 12%, removes AC drivers and PoE nodes from fixtures, eliminates RF and EM radiation from the occupied space and the possibility of fire or electrocution from a building’s lighting system.
LightZero’s technology creates a DC micro-grid for lighting that uses an advanced digital technology that accepts both cutting-edge and traditional lighting controls. The technology can integrate directly with Building Management Systems (BACnet, KNX, DMX, DALI, etc.) and can automatically switch to alternate energy sources such as solar, wind or battery stored power. Our technology provides the smallest carbon footprint of any installed lighting system on the planet, is based on sustainability from design through end-of-life, provides LEED points and is a major contributor to net-zero construction.
Digital Powered Gateways, cloud-based energy monitoring, centralized Amazon Alexa voice control and revolutionary USB-C & DC power wall modules create a system designed for the future.
