Take control of LED lights with your phone

One of the advantages of LED lighting is the incredible versatility and controllability that comes with lights that are basically computer chips.

At Greenbuild 2014, Rick Leeds, manager of vertical markets for OSRAM Sylvania, demonstrated some of the latest innovations in LED lighting and controls.

The OSRAM booth showcased a diverse range of lighting solutions that blend innovation and energy savings, including:

OSRAM LIGHTIFY Smart Connected Lighting Ecosystem – LIGHTIFY brings the future of intelligent lighting into your home with light controlled by a mobile app. LIGHTIFY offers flexibility, color, excitement and emotion, all with low power consumption LED systems.

Traxon Cove Lighting – A sleek family of linear LED products that models efficient simplicity, the Traxon cove lighting portfolio is ideal for decorative or ambient lighting applications. The Traxon cove family of products offers highly energy and cost-efficient alternatives to cold cathode or linear fluorescent systems.

ENCELIUM Lighting Management Systems – ENCELIUM by OSRAM

is a scalable lighting control system that enables owners to elevate the cost effectiveness and occupant experience of their lighting spaces with just a click of the mouse. Featuring new wireless capabilities, ENCELIUM systems enable owners to manage their lighting in spaces where control wiring is difficult to install or maintain. This latest enhancement produces additional flexibility for owners to comply with local building codes, reduce their lighting energy consumption by as much as 75 percent, and qualify for several points toward LEED certification.

ULTRA PRO and ULTRA PRO HD PAR LED lamps – Available in PAR20, PAR30, PAR30LN and PAR38 configurations, these lamps provide superior beam characteristics compared to other LED lamps. Designed to match the smooth distribution and soft edges of halogen lamps, the high center beam candlepower can put the focus on important merchandise or artwork, while the edges of the beam blend gently to enhance the display. These high performance LED lamps are dimmable down to 5 percent and deliver up to 86 percent energy savings over the halogen lamps they replace.

ULTRA A19 Omnidirectional LED Lamps – Newly designed, energy-efficient LED replacements for 40 and 60-watt incandescent lamps, new ULTRA A19 LED lamps feature a unique light pipe for superior light distribution, achieving truly even, smooth illumination. Dimmable down to 10 percent, these lamps can be used in many applications where an omnidirectional, dimmable light source is needed, in both homes and businesses. They provide up to 85 percent energy savings, have a rated life of up to 25,000 hours (L70), and are available in 2700K and 5000K color temperatures.

ULTRA HE T8 LED lamps – Energy saving LED replacements for T8 fluorescent lamps, ULTRA HE T8 lamps combine innovative optical and mechanical design features to achieve a light distribution pattern that reduces lumen loss. The reduction in energy consumption offers a 35 percent energy savings over traditional fluorescent lamps.

SubstiTUBE IS T8 LED lamps – Engineered to operate on existing instant start electronic ballasts, these shatterproof T8 LED lamps contain no mercury, and provide instant light, uniform light distribution and energy savings up to 35 percent. Because the SubstiTUBE IS LED T8 lamp is not affected by switching cycles, occupancy or vacancy sensors can now be installed with the existing instant start ballasts for optimal energy savings. Due to their long 50,000 hour (L70) rated life, these lamps also reduce maintenance and lamp recycling costs.

ORIOS LED lamps – This new line of cost-effective, long-life LED lamps can help contractors ease budget-conscious clients and end-users with converting to LED lighting and enjoying long-term cost savings. With a rated life of up to 25,000 hours (L70), ORIOS LED lamps, which include A-line, MR16, BR, R and PAR lamp types, offer energy savings up to 88 percent in comparison to incandescent lamps.
