Sunrise Technologies Announces New Internet Communications with its ZigBee Wireless Outdoor Lighting Control System for Remote Control of Parking Lot and Area Lighting

March 02, 2010 | 09:54 AM Eastern Standard Time

BOSTON (BUSINESS WIRE) — The Wi-OLC System includes a Base Station radio that connects to the Internet via a Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection and dusk-to-dawn twistlock Lighting Control Communication Modules (LCCM) outfitted with two-way radio communication. The Base Station sends user-programmed radio signals to the LCCMs to override normal dusk-to-dawn photocontrol operation. The modules are installed like NEMA twistlock controls and improve the efficiency of existing contactor controlled lights. The mesh system configures itself automatically at installation. Vance Spillman, Vice President and GM of FP OLC / Sunrise Technologies, says: “Outdoor lights can now be controlled from a central location, and with today’s smart phone technologies, the flexibility of the Wi-OLC System® is revolutionizing the way outdoor lighting is controlled. The Wi-OLC System® is a user-friendly Green Product that provides energy savings and sustainability.”

Individual or groups of fixtures can be programmed with 24-hour, seven-day and 365-day operation settings. Holiday, special events and seasonal operations are easily programmed. An “All On” feature makes checking lamp/fixture operation easy during daytime hours. Monthly energy savings produces a very fast payback.
