Crestron, a global leader in commercial lighting control technology, announced today it has received Architectural SSL magazine’s Product Innovation Award for its new, aptly-named SolarSync™ sensor (GLS-LCCT). Also honoured with two LFI Innovation Awards at LightFair® International 2018, SolarSync “brings the outside in” with correlated colour temperature (CCT) technology and a luminous intensity meter (lux) to measure the exact colour temperature and luminosity of ambient sunlight. A Crestron lighting control system then syncs the indoor lighting fixtures to the CCT and lux values recorded by the sensor, mirroring the natural daylight. Perfect for sensing daylight in all types of weather and climate, the IP67 rated housing contains built-in heating elements that prevent snow and ice from accumulating on the dome of the sensor, ensuring reliable operation year-round.

Circadian Lighting Applications
SolarSync revolutionises circadian lighting control. Traditional tunable white and circadian lighting solutions utilise astronomical time clock and manual user controls. Groundbreaking SolarSync technology incorporates the true atmospheric conditions such as climate and weather that dramatically impact the colour and intensity of sunlight. Because the CCT and lux values of ambient sunlight are measured at the building level, the Crestron lighting control system more accurately recreates outdoor conditions in the tunable lighting, delivering life-like lighting performance. Designed for applications in which physiological, psychological, or aesthetic improvement through circadian lighting is a priority, SolarSync is the only solution that accurately mirrors sunlight through tunable white lighting control.

Crestron Commercial Lighting Control

Crestron simplifies design, installation, and startup of commercial lighting control with the right products and systems to meet the needs of each space in a building. Everything is easily integrated for enterprise-wide monitoring, management, and control. Our process dramatically reduces the time required to complete each phase of a lighting control project while greatly improving efficiency and scalability.
