Somfy and Osram Partner to Advance Light Management to Better Integrate Natural and Artificial Light

Somfy Systems announced partnership with Osram to improve natural and artificial light management in building environments.

The combination of Osram Encelium and Somfy Digital Network® (SDN) creates a centralized interface for facility managers and streamlines the light management process. This unified control experience makes it simple to maximize the combination of natural and artificial light.

“Somfy is proud to partner with Osram to simplify lighting management,” said David Parrett, Lighting and Partnerships Business Development Manager for Somfy North America. “Introducing one system for both automated shading and lighting management creates smarter buildings.”

In the past, automated shading and lighting management systems were deployed separately. This led to a confusing user experience, hindered efficiency and was difficult to maintain. Lighting and shading required separate programming, separate maintenance and even separate wall stations. With the Somfy and Osram partnership, these two essential building functions are now joined together in one system.

Now, lighting and shades can both be controlled from one unified wall station or touchscreen. This centralized control is easy to install and simple to use. A single dashboard allows users to manage and configure their lights and shades for seamless scheduling. Now building managers can schedule around office hours, holiday schedules, and even astronomical events like sunrise and sunset. Consolidated control saves time for facility managers and improves energy efficiency for projects of all sizes.
