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

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.”
