Laguna Hills, California – April 07, 2022: Lumos Controls, the smart lighting control ecosystem from WiSilica is now Open Automated Demand Response 2.0B (OpenADR 2.0B) compliant. It is the industry best standards for automated demand response that offers building owners an opportunity to optimize energy consumption and make building operations sustainable.  

Demand response helps building owners benefit from larger energy savings and improved energy efficiency by reducing or shifting their electricity usage during peak hours with time-based rates or other financial incentives. It is a mandatory requirement for energy efficiency standards such as ASHRAE, Title 24, etc. With Open ADR, the building owners and operators can comply with these requirements with ease.

“Energy efficient lighting is one of the key factors that drives Lumos Controls, and demand response is a critical milestone in our mission. We chose OpenADR as our best pick as it adopts a non-proprietary open standard that allows easy communication between the electricity providers and customers”, said Vivek Pramod Senior Vice President & GM – Smart Controls. “This Low-cost automation allows consumers to use less expensive power and also benefits utilities, system operators, and society at large, “he added.
