Allow people to adjust lighting, color, and temperature in their buildings to suit their preferences. When you do, you can improve comfort, safety, and productivity by up to 15%. Combine building systems such as light, air, physical security, and more onto a single IP network for easy management. And reduce your energy costs by as much as 30%.
Merge lighting, air, physical security, and other networks onto a single IP network.
More than 50% energy savings over traditional methods helps lower total costs
Room temperature, and light color and intensity settings follow workers to their spaces.
Sensors help analyze traffic patterns, space utilization, and occupancy rate in real time.
RBC Waterpark Place III in Toronto converged all IP devices and building systems onto one network to reduce an array of capital and operating expenses.
"We regularly invest in new technology to reduce environmental impact. Remodeling our boardroom, executive wing, and atrium was a perfect opportunity to demonstrate the advantages of intelligent lighting. Ethernet cable is much easier and faster to deploy compared to electrical conduit. And we don’t need to call an electrician if we want to move a light."Paul Hofman, Vice President of Information Technology, Central Iowa Power Cooperative
Using a Cisco Catalyst switch, we connected lights and other building systems in our headquarters to monitor and manage them together. Workers can now personalize their environment with a smartphone app to improve their output. New LED technologies mimic natural light, which has been proven to improve employee performance.
Run your buildings with high service levels. At the same time, deliver cost savings and environmental benefits through reduced power consumption.
A Digital Ceiling combines innovations in smart IoT devices and sensors with Cisco PoE and Universal Power over Ethernet products. Our Catalyst switches deliver PoE+ and UPOE to connected endpoints.
Lighting enables the first wave of innovation by creating an initial layer of IP-connected (light) endpoints into the ceiling.
Our partners provide building automation technology, controls and equipment to integrate HVAC, communications, and security systems at the infrastructure level.
Enablers supply the essential parts you need to converge separate networks, such as cabling to support Power over Ethernet.
Our ISVs add value to your Digital Ceiling investment with innovative applications you can choose to deploy.
