For Immediate Release: May 13, 2019
ROUND ROCK, Texas - Facility Solutions Group (FSG), a leader in building technology system design, integration, installation and managed services, and Osram, a global high-tech lighting company, are joining forces to offer turnkey smart building IoT solutions to the commercial, industrial and retail industries. As part of the collaborative partnership, FSG will offer Encelium® Light Management System and fixture-integrated sensors, controls and components by Osram to end customers including national accounts. Smart building IoT solutions leverage networked lighting systems as the technology infrastructure for smart lighting and applications beyond illumination that improve operational efficiencies, building sustainability profiles, occupant comfort and the bottom line. The strategic collaboration with FSG further demonstrates Osram’s commitment to a growing ecosystem that is embracing the digitalization of commercial space that creates smarter buildings.
Fixture-integrated sensors and control modules by Osram, including the new SensiLUM wireless integrated sensor, are available through ONiX specification-ready OEM partners and serve as ideal data nodes on a smart lighting network such as the Encelium® Extend Light Management System (LMS). Lighting and environmental data is collected from these nodes and stored on Osram’s new cloud platform, Lightelligence™. This granular data about the space is then accessed by third-party analytics software developer partners offering SaaS for smart building applications. Initially, turnkey solutions from FSG will combine the Encelium light management system with a lighting package that includes fixture-integrated components by Osram, as well as lighting system installation and managing services. Beyond this initial collaboration, the companies plan to extend their combined efforts to include other solutions that further enable smart building applications and workplace enhancements.
“These are immense business opportunities for companies that take advantage of digitalization and the latest smart building IoT applications. However, many facility managers and business owners find the process of identifying and weighing different infrastructure options daunting, and prefer the support of a knowledgeable and trusted partner,” said Tom Shottes, CEO Osram Digital Systems group, Americas Region. “Our collaboration with FSG will help us provide even more value to customers seeking a complete solution, particularly national and multi-location accounts. FSG has over 33 locations and more than 2,000 employees, and they have the lighting, controls and building system expertise that Osram seeks in a collaborative partner.”
“FSG is very excited to be working in partnership with Osram to offer advanced lighting and smart building IoT solutions for commercial, industrial and retail buildings,” said Joe Hill, VP of Solutions, FSG Smart Buildings. “Encelium Light Management System solutions are cutting-edge, and with Osram’s market reach through ONiX specification-ready OEM partners, we can create an optimal solution for each customer we work with.”
