Signify, world leader in lighting, and Honeywell a global leader in connected buildings, announced a strategic alliance to deploy integrated lighting solutions for commercial buildings. Together, the companies aim to improve the occupant experience, focusing on productivity and well-being and to reduce energy consumption.

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. The combined offerings will manage energy consumption while factoring in occupancy along with air quality indicators such as temperature and humidity. 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.

Signify offers additional elements to improve productivity and wellbeing. These elements include human-centric lighting, and UV-C disinfection lighting. UV-C breaks down the DNA or RNA of micro-organisms, including viruses and bacteria, rendering them harmless. 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.

Additionally, building owners and operators will be able to better manage lighting systems and energy efficiency with smart LED lighting systems. Lighting represents 17% of all electricity used in US commercial buildings according to the Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey, making it the largest end use of electricity in buildings.

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

“Increasingly, we see lighting systems playing a critical role in buildings to improve occupant comfort, well-being and productivity as well as to help meet energy-savings goals. We anticipate that this trend will continue to grow,” said Vimal Kapur, President and CEO, Honeywell Building Technologies. “Our collaboration with Signify will allow us to enable our customers to help improve the occupant experience with customizable lighting solutions that can be integrated into our Honeywell Forge and Building Management Systems platforms.”

Many of our customers expect our solutions to deliver value beyond illumination. We look forward to collaborating with Honeywell and jointly developing products and systems that not only deliver end-user benefits, such as increased well-being and productivity, but are also easy to commission and maintain.”
