Autani’s SmartLet Wins LIGHTFAIR International Innovation Award
Columbia, MD – Autani Corporation’s SmartLet™ Wireless Outlet Controller has been selected as a winner of LIGHTFAIR International’s 2012 LFI Innovation Award. The SmartLet Outlet Controller switches 120VAC receptacles ON or OFF based upon occupancy, schedules, and demand response events, providing automatic receptacle control as required by ASHRAE 90.1 2010 Section 8.4.2. SmartLet is an integrated part of Autani’s LightCenter family of lighting and plug load controls.
“We are honored that SmartLet has been recognized as the most innovative controls product at the premier lighting show in the world,” said Walt Dowling, Director of Sales and Marketing. “This award solidifies Autani’s growing reputation as a leader in the building controls industry.”
SmartLet is wirelessly configured, scheduled, and controlled by an Autani Manager appliance running Autani’s LightCenter+ or PLUS software. Dynamic scheduling allows the user to define ON and OFF events for receptacles, as well as periods governed by occupancy rules. Timeouts to switch off loads in unoccupied spaces are easily set per schedule or event, and can vary throughout the day.
When used in conjunction with Autani’s EMC Software, SmartLet can be used to switch off power to computers, monitors, and accessories after networked Windows PCs have been gracefully shut down. SmartLet also features on‐board energy monitoring to measure and track power consumption of plug loads in real time, and its fail‐safe operation maintains local control of receptacles at all times.
