Daintree Networks and Philips have signed an agreement to develop advanced lighting controls products for commercial buildings through the use of open standards. According to them, customers will be ensured that their lighting systems are interoperable.

According to Daintree, the collaboration will generate a full complement of ZigBee-based products, as well as best-of-breed technologies from both companies. "Philips is committed to providing customers with leading technology solutions to manage their energy use and create more usable, occupant-friendly environments," said Raj Jayaraman, VP, Philips Lighting. "Working with Daintree Networks, we can create innovative software platforms that provide interoperable wireless networking, intelligent controls through industry standards and help drive this energy-saving technology."

Through this agreement, Philips will work with Daintree Networks to ensure that company products can integrate with Daintree's software and controllers to create an expanded line of networked, wireless controls solutions. Every sensor, switch and light fixture becomes part of a large-scale wireless communications network, with bi-directional messaging. With systems that are easy to design and flexible enough to be adapted as the needs of a space change, building owners will be able to adopt lighting solutions. The two companies have already been working closely, both on technical integration and joint customer projects.

"Our collaboration with Philips is proof positive of the power of intelligent, wireless lighting controls to save energy and improve lighting management," noted Danny Yu, CEO, Daintree Networks. "Together, Daintree and Philips can better meet the needs of commercial buildings for large-scale, networked lighting controls."
