Enlighted Wins 2019 Sapphire Award for 5th Generation IoT Sensor


The Sapphire Awards, hosted by LEDs Magazine, acknowledge innovative companies and individuals in the LED-based solid-state lighting (SSL) industry.

Sunnyvale, Calif. – March 13, 2019 – Enlighted, the leading provider of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for commercial buildings and healthcare facilities, was recognized for its continuing commitment to advancing the lighting industry at the 2019 LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards ceremony.

Celebrating innovation in the industry, the ceremony took place during the Strategies in Light conference and Enlighted’s 5th generation IoT sensor was selected as the winner in the Smart and Connected SSL Enabling Technologies category. Enlighted has won the last two years in a row, in three separate categories, along with being named a finalist in 2017.

In 2018, Enlighted’s CTO and co-founder Tanuj Mohan was awarded the Illumineer of the Year award, and Enlighted won the SSL Smart Lighting Project award for a public school system installation in Cheshire, Connecticut.

The LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards program features exciting product developments across 19 technology categories that represent the entire LED and solid-state lighting (SSL) supply chain. Winners were selected by an independent panel of 21 judges chosen from industry and consultancy roles and are based on a product’s or solution’s innovation, ease of use, efficiency, reliability, and contribution to profitability.

“We are honored to have the Enlighted 5th generation sensor win this year’s Sapphire Award for Smart and Connected SSL Enabling Technologies,” Mark Milligan, vice president of marketing at Enlighted. This sensor provides customers the most advanced smart building technology in the industry today, and a powerful upgrade path for the building as IoT technology continues to rapidly advance.”
