Redwood Systems’ Building-Performance Lighting Platform facilitates lower energy costs and higher-performing workplaces. Its platform powers and controls lights and a high-density sensor grid to provide both aggressive energy savings and granular monitoring of space utilization, temperature and power consumption. This award-winning approach uses patented networking technology and a low-voltage DC architecture for high reliability and scalability as well as low cost installation.
The Redwood Building-Performance Lighting Platform
The Redwood Systems Building-Performance Lighting Platform features the following hardware and software components:
The Redwood Engine provides centralized power, communications and control for up to 48 light fixtures. Multiple engines can be clustered together and connected to the corporate network for simplified management and control.
The Redwood Director is an appliance that provides a single, convenient interface for commissioning, managing, controlling and reporting on a large number of Redwood Engines.
The Redwood Manager is a Web-based interface that is used to commission, control and report on lighting power usage, occupancy data and environmental temperatures.
The Redwood Open Application Framework enables customers and partners to integrate complementary systems and applications using an Application Programming Interface (API) and BACnet/IP protocols.
The Redwood Gateways & Sensors work in unison to turn on, turn off and dim third-party fixtures, while monitoring light, temperature and motion. The data is transmitted back to the Redwood Engine via low-voltage cable.
The Redwood Wall Switches are intelligent, multi-scene or dimming switches that fit into any standard wall box and include embedded sensing capabilities.
