Osram, a global high-tech lighting company, is teaming up with Rifiniti, a leader in workplace analytics software, to offer smart building IoT solutions to the commercial real estate industry that improve operational efficiencies, occupant comfort and the bottom line. The solutions guide major real estate decisions such as capacity planning and conference room rationalization and combine rich data based on the smart lighting technology infrastructure by Osram with powerful workplace analytics software by Rifiniti. As part of the partnership, Osram will offer Rifiniti Optimo software as a solution (SaaS) to Encelium Extend light management system end customers.
Osram sensors, including the new SensiLUM wireless sensor embedded in luminaires, serve as ideal data nodes on a smart lighting network such as the Encelium Extend Light Management System (LMS) by Osram. Lighting and environmental data is collected from these nodes and stored on Osrams new cloud platform, Lightelligence„¢ and accessed via an API by third-party analytics software developers offering SaaS for smart building applications beyond lighting. Rifiniti offers Optimo workplace analytics software solutions including capacity planning and conference room rationalization that enable businesses to optimize commercial office space and boost efficiency while providing employees with flexible, modern workplaces.
