This year we were fortunate enough to send 6 members of the team to help introduce SBT Alliance & meet with some of our initial partners to look at new products, talk about some new services in the works & have a few strategic discussions about how we can help each other with some projects quickly filling our pipeline. In attendance were (left to right):

First up on our partner tour was Avi-on Labs. Avi-on’s vision for Simple Bluetooth® Controls was born from the perfect mix of software expertise, engineering ability, passion for energy efficiency and experience in lighting and building controls. Never stopping, the vibrant Avi-on ecosystem is growing with new products and partners, providing easy to use solutions to commercial, residential, architectural and outdoor lighting markets.
Our next stop was CURRENT (a General Electric company). With businesses beginning to transition to LED lighting, there are millions of commercial and industrial buildings in the United States which creates A LOT of opportunity for energy efficient technologies. More than just cost-savings, connected lighting has the potential to unleash additional productivity and revenue outcomes, and to prepare organizations for the future of smart building technology.
Then it was off to ENLIGHTED (a Siemens company). Enlighted’s mission is to help our customers reach long-range sustainability goals while saving money and increasing efficiency. With our first-in-class sensor and analytics platform, we provide smart energy solutions for commercial environments, saving customers up to 90% in energy costs while improving the comfort of workspaces and the efficiency of the people who work in them.
From there, we had the opportunity to speak with Robert Lee from Signify before appearing with him during a panel discussion on Thursday. Signify is the new company name of Philips Lighting. We are the world leader in lighting and provide our customers with high-quality, energy-efficient lighting products, systems and services. We turn light sources into points of data to connect more devices, places and people through light, contributing to a safer, more productive and smarter world.
