NuLEDs has created a system that revolutionizes the way lighting is used in buildings. We have developed the system (hardware, firmware, software) to utilize IEEE standardized Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) to power and control lights, and enable lighting as a service (LaaS). The system is also a platform for hosting sensors to gather building data of all sorts (occupancy, light levels, temperature, humidity, etc). NuLEDs' system converges power and control of lights (and potentially other building services) onto the safe, familiar, and standardized platform of Ethernet communication. The power and communication is via category cable (Cat5e, Cat6) making the connections extremely simple and inexpensive and eliminates the very expensive conduit and high-voltage electrical infrastructure used for traditional lighting systems. Further, NuLEDs system expands the IT network to all corners of a building allowing interaction with all services and users of the network.
