12 Week Project Finished in 15 Days Using ILLUMRA

ILLUMRA products were used in an “unprecedented industry move” as part of a 10,000 sq. ft. office build-out in Boston, MA. The project was named “15 days”, because it was completed in that short amount of time. It was sponsored by Commodore Builders, Leggat McCall Properties, and Audrey O’Hagen Architects, who issued the following press release about the project.

ILLUMRA products were selected as the flexible lighting control system in the build-out blitz. During Day 12, the ILLUMRA wireless switching system was quickly and easily installed, saving money in both labor and materials.

ILLUMRA’s flexibility allows the office space to change without getting in the way. In fact, ILLUMRA systems can grow and change as needs in the space evolve. For example, the light switches can be moved to new locations in a matter of minutes. New switches can be added. Existing switches can be assigned to control different light fixtures. Temperature, motion, and light sensors can control the lights, shades and/or HVAC system. Because they never require batteries to operate, ILLUMRA switches are literally maintenance-free. “ILLUMRA wireless control products are changing the way architects, specifiers, interior designers, lighting designers, and builders approach projects. Workspace personalization and office reconfiguration become more practical and affordable, and last-minute changes to wall configurations are no longer a cause for project delays,” says Jan Finlinson, Vice President of ILLUMRA.

ILLUMRA products provide ongoing savings because they can intelligently save energy through the use of wireless sensors. ILLUMRA products are also compatible with a wide variety of commonly available wired sensors from almost any manufacturer.

ILLUMRA products also qualify buildings in which they are used for LEED credits. In 1998 the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System was developed. Green buildings are healthier, more environmentally responsible, more energy efficient, and more profitable to operate. ILLUMRA products helped the “15 day” project to achieve a GOLD rating in the LEED Green Building Rating System.

ILLUMRA is the largest supplier in North America, of self-powered, battery-free, wireless lighting control and energy management systems and is member of the EnOcean Alliance. All ILLUMRA products operate using the EnOcean protocol, the de facto standard for energy-harvesting wireless controls. The technology allows energy harvesting ILLUMRA transmitters to operate indefinitely without the use of batteries. The motion of a switch actuation, light on a solar cell, or other ambient energy in the environment provide power to ILLUMRA transmitters, providing zero-maintenance wireless devices. The ILLUMRA product line includes multiple products which operate in the uncrowded 315 MHz band offering greater transmission range than other wireless technologies and minimal competitive traffic.
