ABB and Philips join forces in commercial building automation

 ABB and Philips announced a collaboration to simplify the integration of connected lighting systems and building device control for commercial buildings. Combining Philips’ wealth of expertise in LED lighting systems with ABB’s knowledge of building automation will benefit systems integrators, commercial building owners, facility managers and the people who work in these buildings.
Philips connected lighting system will interface seamlessly with ABB`s automation software to offer the ability to control a commercial environment including lighting, blinds, building access and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC). The introduction of the solution from ABB and Philips will make it much simpler to reconfigure spaces. In a hotel, this could mean altering the lighting scene after combining several separate rooms into a large meeting room, just through one click. Or in a shopping complex, a building manager can simply reconfigure the access, HVAC and lighting when a single unit is split into smaller ones.
Eric Rondolat, CEO, Philips Lighting, said, “Philips’ LED lighting combined with controls can deliver up to 80 per cent energy savings compared to conventional lighting, while providing high-quality light for a comfortable, more productive work environment.”
Tarak Mehta, Head – Low Voltage Products division, ABB, added, “The future is the ability to reconfigure spaces at the touch of a button, while reducing energy consumption. ABB and Philips will work together to offer a simple, scalable solution to streamline the introduction of this technology in commercial buildings.’’
