Siemens and Enlighted have partnered with Zumtobel Group to advance the adoption of smart building technologies worldwide.

  • Siemens and Enlighted announce ecosystem partnership with Zumtobel Group, a global lighting solutions provider
  • Enlighted’s state-of-the-art smart sensor technology to be integrated into Zumtobel Group’s premium lighting products, for an attractive IoT lighting bundle for customers
  • Advantages of the partnership include: effective prefabricated solutions, efficient wireless deployment, smart adaptable technology, and enhanced insights

Siemens and Enlighted, a leading property technology company owned by Siemens, announce a strategic partnership with Zumtobel Group, a global lighting solutions provider, to advance the adoption of smart building technologies including intelligent IoT lighting, setting new standards for efficiency and sustainability in building operations worldwide.

At the core of the partnership lies the technical integration of Enlighted’s industry-leading smart sensors into Zumtobel Group’s lighting portfolio, both under Zumtobel and Thorn brands. The result is a comprehensive suite of IoT smart lighting solutions designed to elevate occupant well-being and facilitate sustainable, energy-efficient building operations. The partnership will have a special focus on commercial buildings, higher education, and smart hospitals.  

“Bringing together two leaders of smart lighting technology creates an opportunity to innovate and accelerate the delivery of advanced IoT solutions to our customers,” said Alfred Felder, CEO of Zumtobel Group. “The combination of these brands will elevate the smart building market and expand what is possible in terms of functionality, efficiency, and user experience.”

The partnership aims to allow faster access to technology solutions and services that can help to decarbonize buildings, elevate the occupant experience and ensure cost-efficient operations, through the strengths of both companies’ portfolios. Prefabricated bundles featuring Zumtobel Group fixtures and Enlighted specialized sensors for new construction and retrofits will optimize delivery processes and simplify orders. Access to Enlighted’s wireless network design will ensure swift deployment, eliminating the need for complex wiring and ensuring precise installations. Finally, intelligent lighting configurations, coupled with smart IoT data collection and analysis, will enable a real time location system (RTLS) which tracks the location and movement of assets and badges in buildings for advanced operational decision making. The Enlighted portfolio is part of the Siemens Xcelerator Marketplace, an open digital business platform to accelerate digital transformation.

The partnership will also allow Siemens to strengthen its solutions and services offerings to customers, supporting their energy reduction, decarbonization and sustainability goals through end-to-end programs.

“With valuable insights and analytics, smart lighting solutions can enable more intelligent decision-making, and drive sustainable innovation to transform interactions with the built environment,” said Dave Hopping, CEO, Solutions and Services, Siemens Smart Infrastructure. “With the shared vision of this partnership, we are dedicated to providing solutions which prioritize occupant wellbeing and pave the way for significant energy savings and IoT data solutions.”

Providing access to best-in-class building data captured from Enlighted’s smart IoT sensors, empowers decision makers to optimize operations, prioritize energy efficiency, and create spaces that are more comfortable, sustainable, and future-ready for occupants.
