Smart lighting partnership to offer real-time data for building intelligence

October 19, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Providing what it claims to be the world’s first ‘Full-Stack’ operating platform that connects lighting manufacturers to the Internet of Things (IoT), Gooee (St. Petersburg, FL) has partnered with PointGrab (Hod HaSharon, Israel), a provider of intelligent edge-analytics, to deliver energy savings by capturing real-time intelligence of a building’s environment.

The partnership will enable Gooee to connect CogniPoint, PointGrab’s deep-learning based sensor, into its lighting ecosystem and stream the data collected through the cloud. Using advanced deep learning neural networks, CogniPoint provides data on the presence, number and position of occupants in an area, delivering actionable analytics to optimise a building’s operations, space management, energy savings and business intelligence.

This approach to building automation will provide real-time intelligence and control, creating ‘true’ smart buildings that are highly efficient and improve the occupant’s experience.

Simon Coombes, CTO and co-founder of Gooee, says: “Alongside our IoT sensor, the PointGrab sensing platform will generate a rich dataset that we expect will lead to several energy saving opportunities and the optimization of smart buildings.”

Itamar Roth, Chief Business Officer of PointGrab, adds: “Due to the increased demand for more intelligent and more efficient buildings following the rapid adoption of IoT, smart sensors are essential to today’s building automation capabilities. Integrating our technology into Gooee’s ecosystem expands our market reach and enables customers to access the complete joint solution.”
