"With the new feature sets available in Lumewave by Echelon CMS, contractors will realize reduced installation and set up of complex control sequences of operations, while administrators will enjoy easier interfaces for ongoing operation and maintenance."

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Echelon Corporation (NASDAQ:ELON), a leading independent control networking company for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), announced today version 5.0 of its Lumewave by Echelon CMS (central management system) software that will further simplify installation, and improve the overall control and operation of general lighting systems, specifically in parking structures, as mandated by recent building energy codes: California Title 24-2013 and ASHRAE 90.1-2010. Parking garages alone account for about 15 percent of a building’s total lighting energy consumption, according to the National Renewable Energy Labs (NREL, 2012), that can now be improved using an intelligent networked lighting control system, such as Lumewave by Echelon smart lighting platform.

“As one of the more complex commercial buildings to light for occupant safety and security, parking garages require multiple lighting strategies that must be implemented, followed by constant control and management of the settings,” said Sohrab Modi, Vice President and CTO of Echelon Corp. “With the new feature sets available in Lumewave by Echelon CMS, contractors will realize reduced installation and set up of complex control sequences of operations, while administrators will enjoy easier interfaces for ongoing operation and maintenance.”
