GE Current’s networked wireless lighting controls earn DesignLights Consortium qualification

Daintree Networked brand controls connect with other building systems including HVAC, fans, water heaters, and refrigeration units.

Daintree Networked wireless lighting controls from GE Current are now Qualified Networked Lighting Controls Products recognized by the DesignLights Consortium (DLC).

When Current announced this recognition, the company’s chief technology officer Tom Boyle explained, “The DLC provides an impartial assessment of the industry’s highest-performing products to boost consumer trust, so you know you’re getting the technology solutions that save the most energy. We’re pleased that Daintree Networked Wireless Controls are now listed as a verified device for enabling connected buildings, which can help to meet energy- and carbon-reduction goals, as well as a potential for building optimization and functionality.”

The company further stated that this product set “provides the infrastructure for feature-rich control of LED lighting and connects with other building management systems such as HVAC, plug load control, fans, water heaters, air compressors and refrigeration units. This gives building managers the ability to easily schedule, monitor, report, and resolve energy performance issues using the Daintree Controls Software web app.”

Boyle continued, “DLC has rigorous requirements for listing, so architects and designers can be confident in their product selections when building or updating structures. This allows them to keep pace with all the change in commercial lighting and deliver solutions that are truly efficient.”

The DLC’s mission is “to achieve energy optimization by enabling controllability with a focus on quality, people, and the environment,” the non-profit organization says. The DLC maintains three Qualified Products Lists (QLPs) for energy-efficient lighting technology: solid-state lighting, horticulture lighting, and networked lighting controls. Lighting designers, contractors, specifiers, and other professionals consult these QLPs daily.
