Lutron Acquires Limelight

January 21, 2019

Lutron Electronics has acquired Limelight, a wireless lighting control solution for outdoor and industrial facilities that provides remote control and management, saves energy, and enhances facility safety. With the simplicity of its wireless fixture-level control architecture, it also helps ensure code compliance and streamlines the specification and design process. 

Lutron’s product line has historically focused on interior controls and automated shading solutions. “The purchase of Limelight is the logical next step in the relationship between Lutron and TwistHDM,” says Scott Hanna, Senior Vice President. “Limelight by Lutron was a terrific opportunity to deliver a simplified outdoor lighting solution that was part of a portfolio of indoor and outdoor smart building controls.”

Limelight was developed in 2008 by Twisthink, a strategic innovation firm. Acquiring Limelight offers the potential for an even wider range of IoT solutions, says Hanna. “With this new capability, we look forward to what we can do to fulfill our number one principle: take care of our customers with superior goods and services.” 

Limelight by Lutron integrates data seamlessly into Lutron’s existing data and management platform, Enterprise Vue. That software, which offers a variety of metrics and alerts, enables a facility’s interior and exterior lighting to be controlled from one dashboard and allows Lutron to provide a solution for multi-building projects and campuses looking to control lighting indoors and out. 

“With the construction industry increasingly turning to smart building IoT solutions, the addition of Limelight to Lutron’s brand portfolio gives Lutron a formidable range of lighting control options,” says Bob Niemiec, Managing Partner at Twisthink and TwistHDM. Limelight’s universal wireless modules are capable of working with any LED fixture, factory or field installed. The controls leverage occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, event scheduling, and zoning to use energy only when, where and to what degree is needed, resulting in an energy savings of at least 50%. Limelight also decreases maintenance costs with email alert notifications, fault detection, and remote monitoring.
