“This 1000W HID replacement lamp fills an important void in the market for our industrial, warehouse and outdoor lighting customers,” said Alan Boose, Senior Product Manager for LED Lamps at Current by GE. “Customers are excited about the simplicity of installation, consistent light distribution, and most importantly, long-term dramatic savings.”

Lighting Controls

Current by GE also recently announced two new lighting controls products that it has now made commercially available. Daintree* One offers a standalone lighting control solution for applications needing minimal light such as closets, storage rooms, and restrooms.

Daintree EZ Connect provides a room-based wireless solution for use in commercial buildings, schools, and hospitals. EZ Connect lets a group of neighboring fixtures communicate without the requiring a separate gateway. Both products use embedded wireless occupancy and daylight sensors and can be set up, commissioned, and controlled via a mobile app.

Current by GE designed Daintree One and EZ to easily upgrade to Daintree Enterprise solutions to enable customers to build their own smart building solutions from an open API or choose an app from Current’s broad ecosystem of technology partners.
