The university has made it their responsibility to be a wise steward of scarce resources by reducing the use of non-renewable resources and increasing energy efficiency. As part of the large CSU system, this responsibility also includes promoting continued economic and ecological viability in California.


The team chose to move forward with Enlighted’s platform because its advanced sensors provided several unique benefits to the university. The capabilities that were particularly interesting to the project team included:

  • Ease of implementation: Sensors communicate over a wireless network, enabling a relatively simple upgrade of CSUDH’s existing fixtures.
  • Cost effective solution: The sensor units could be easily installed, commissioned and serviced by the facilities management team at the University, making the solution affordable to implement and maintain going forward.
  • Highly intelligent sensors: Advanced sensors make control decisions locally at each fixture, adjusting light levels by sending information to the driver of the host fixture.
