Thinking about location services for your building?

Let lighting & BMS lead the way.

We believe the reason that Acuity Brands is the only lighting and BMS company named in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Indoor Location Services, Global is:

  • ROI and RODI: Our lighting and BMS systems provide an ROI from energy savings that can fund the digital technology hardware.

  • Interoperability: Our hardware and software is interoperable with other lighting and digital vendors.

  • Scalability: We have proven the scalability of our solutions beyond proof of concept not only in retail, but aviation, warehouse, airports and commercial office facilities.

  • Security: We established our own security framework for connected, integrated and unified systems that is applied to how we develop, deploy and manage our solutions. We also partner with organizations like Microsoft who provide a secure cloud.

Evolve your space from a cost center to a strategic asset.

Location services can create digital spaces in retail, healthcare, aviation, retail, warehouse, and other facilities and buildings.

These components of an indoor location service solution may include*:

  • Hardware: Beacons, sensors and supplemental beacons, tags, gateways, fixed readers, cameras, Wi-Fi access points and other components collect location data.

  • Software: Location engines collect data from the hardware components and provide a publicly available northbound API to communicate X-Y coordinates. Location engine services may be located on-premises or in the cloud.

  • Management applications: These applications monitor and provide the status of all hardware components required for the solution.

Here are some common usage scenarios:

1. Application of static/fixed beacons across an indoor space, building or facility

2. Creation of zones using beacons for mobile assets

3. Real-time location of mobile/fixed assets

4. People tracking

5. Critical asset tracking
