Acuity Brands Launches the ROAMview Lighting Control System, Extending the Company's ROAM Roadway Technology into Site and Area Lighting
Introducing the ROAMview™ lighting control system, an expansion of the Company's ROAM® suite of industry-leading wireless outdoor lighting monitoring and control systems. ROAMview features a pre-configured server and software package that can be easily deployed in smaller site, area or roadway applications such as car dealerships, shopping malls and campuses.
The ROAMview system allows property owners and small municipalities to efficiently operate and maintain their outdoor lighting by taking advantage of the optimal lighting performance, energy savings and reduced maintenance costs that the ROAM technology suite offers. With its pre-configured server and gateway, the ROAMview system simply connects to a user's existing computer network, enabling control and monitoring from any computer within the user's organization.
The intuitive, browser-based portal provides ease of control for grouping outdoor lighting fixtures, and easily applies customer-defined schedules for precise on/off and dimming. Events or holidays that require specific lighting patterns are conveniently accommodated in the ROAMview portal's simple drag-and-drop time-clock scheduling screen.
"With the addition of the ROAMview system to our product line, we can now offer all property owners a powerful suite of capabilities and features similar to those used by large municipalities," said Terry Utterback, Acuity Brands Lighting Vice President and ROAM Value Stream Leader. "Without trenching a single foot of wire, they can go from circuit-based control to individual fixture control. The system tracks and reports individual fixture performance, and reports outages so that they can be quickly addressed. It eliminates the need for night-time audits, the waste of day-burning lights and the elevated risks associated with lighting outages."
The ROAMview system is simple to install and commission. Wireless ROAM nodes are installed on each fixture, attaching to an industry-standard NEMA® twist-and-lock receptacle. As soon as the pre-configured server and gateway are energized, the system can begin to form its self-configuring, self-healing mesh network. It takes only a few hours to set up fixture groups and begin controlling lights.
