Crestron Electronics, a world renowned firm in the field of commercial lighting solutions as well as home automation, have in the past week announced that they were awarded two prestigious LFI Innovation Awards at LightFair International 2018.
LightFair International is the world’s largest architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference, and the LFI Innovation Awards are designed to recognise and honour the ingenuity, creativity and resourcefulness of manufacturers within the lighting industry.
It was Crestron’s new SolarSync daylight sensor with correlated colour temperature (CCT) and a luminous intensity meter, which accounted for the firm’s two awards. Those awards came in the ‘Technical Innovation’ and the ‘Controls: Components, Sensors, Interfaces and Software’ categories, and were the result of the deliberations of an independent panel of renowned lighting professionals.
Crestron’s SolarSync daylight sensor has been designed by the company to analyse the colour temperature of ambient light and direct indoor lighting to automatically match the detected colour when mounted outdoors or in an area exposed to plenty of natural light.
According to Crestron’s Chief Technology Officer, Fred Bargetzi, the two LFI Innovation Awards represent an endorsement of the hard work that went into developing the innovation solution:
‘Crestron is extremely proud and honoured [sic] to be recognized [sic] for our innovative commercial lighting solutions…These awards are validation of the hard work and ingenuity of the hundreds of engineers and visionaries in our R&D labs.’
