Lighting specialist Signify and Honeywell has entered into a strategic alliance to deploy integrated, smart lighting solutions for commercial buildings.

The collaboration integrates Signify’s Interact connected lighting system and software, and its UV-C disinfection lighting, with Honeywell Building Management Systems and the Honeywell Forge enterprise performance management platform.

Signify’s lighting solutions will complement Honeywell’s Healthy Buildings air quality solutions beginning in early 2021, and can be controlled, measured and monitored via the Healthy Buildings dashboard to understand air and surface cleaning compliance and metrics.

In laboratory testing, Signify’s UV-C light sources reduced SARS-CoV-2 virus infectivity on a surface to below detectable levels in as few as 9 seconds.

Signify’s connected LED lighting system Interact Office can save up to 70% of the energy used for lighting and deploying advanced building controls and sensing, like those from Honeywell, can save up to 30% in facility energy costs.

Commenting on the development, Vimal Kapur, president and CEO, Honeywell Building Technologies, said “increasingly we see lighting systems playing a critical role in buildings to improve occupant comfort, wellbeing and productivity as well as to help meet energy savings goals. We anticipate this trend will continue to grow.”

“Our collaboration with Signify will allow us to enable our customers to implement integrated lighting solutions that help improve the occupant experience with customizable, personal lighting options that can be integrated into our Honeywell Forge and Building Management Systems platforms,” Kapur added.

“There are known benefits of how lighting can improve occupant experience and wellbeing,” said Harsh Chitale, leader of Signify’s Digital Solutions Division.

Chitale further said that “many of our customers expect our solutions to deliver value beyond the scope of lighting. We look forward to capitalizing on this collaboration with Honeywell to jointly develop products and systems that provide greater value to our customers. We aim to deliver end-user benefits to building occupants, such as increased wellbeing and productivity, while providing channel partners with products that are easier to commission and maintain.”
