Terralux is announcing a new corporate identity and vision for intelligent buildings and connected lighting offerings. The company is now Sielo, a brand that represents cloud-based, connected building solutions to bring together power, light, and data in facilities. Sielo will continue to advance LED lighting offerings for retrofit and OEM markets, in conjunction with accelerating its LEDSENSE® IoT intelligence platform. Founded in Boulder, CO as Terralux, Sielo has been designing and manufacturing building intelligence and LED solutions since 2003.
“The needs of commercial buildings are evolving, and require technology that combines efficiency, productivity, and well-being,” said Sielo CEO Steve Hane. “Sielo’s connected building solution, LEDSENSE®, leverages existing infrastructure in a straightforward strategy to create more intelligent, efficient, and effective building management. Our goal is to help our customers find a practical route to making the commercial IoT work for them — a very real and valuable goal for our innovative technology platform.”
Sielo products and solutions have been implemented in building projects around the country, including university campuses, medical facilities, office buildings, municipal, multifamily, and retail.
“Our name is derived from the sky, inspired by connected lighting and the Internet of Things (IoT),” said Matthew Sallee, director of strategic Marketing at Sielo. “Our brand is uninterrupted connectivity between spaces and people, just as our LEDSENSE platform delivers intelligent sustainability to our clients through the cloud.”
LEDSENSE connects to most LED fixtures, controlling the widest variety of commercial spaces. The platform leverages existing systems to modernize and enable buildings — and those who manage them — to become more efficient.
With a summer 2017 software release, LEDSENSE® expands capabilities for both end-users and Sielo’s Certified LEDSENSE® Partner(CLP) network:
- The Radio Reveal Android application simplifies and speeds field commissioning.
- Smart thermostat capabilities expanded for both small and large commercial deployments.
- Expanded role-based user groups and access levels for end users and CLPs.
- UI improvements throughout, including new energy savings dashboard.
- Addition of multiple third-party EnOcean devices, including wireless sensors, switches, and energy monitors.
