Osram and FSG Announce Collaborative Partnership for Smart Building IoT Solutions

WILMINGTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Osram,
a global high-tech lighting company, and Facility Solutions Group (
FSG),
a leader in building technology system design, integration, installation
and managed services, are joining forces to
offer turnkey smart building IoT solutions to the commercial, industrial
and retail industries. As part of the collaborative partnership, FSG
will offer the Encelium® Light Management System and fixture-integrated
sensors, controls and components by Osram to end customers including
national accounts. Smart building IoT solutions leverage networked
lighting systems as the technology infrastructure for smart lighting and
applications beyond illumination that improve operational efficiencies,
building sustainability profiles, occupant comfort and the bottom line.
The strategic collaboration with FSG further demonstrates Osram’s
commitment to a growing ecosystem that is embracing the digitalization
of commercial space that creates smarter buildings.

Fixture-integrated sensors and control modules by Osram, including the
new SensiLUM
wireless integrated sensor, are available through ONiX
specification-ready OEM partners and serve as ideal data nodes on a
smart lighting network such as the Encelium® Extend Light Management
System (LMS). Lighting and environmental data is collected from these
nodes and stored on Osram’s new cloud platform, Lightelligence™. This
granular data about the space is then accessed by third-party analytics
software developer partners offering SaaS for smart building
applications. Initially, turnkey solutions from FSG will combine the
Encelium light management system with a lighting package that includes
fixture-integrated components by Osram, as well as lighting system
installation and managing services. Beyond this initial collaboration,
the companies plan to extend their combined efforts to include other
solutions that further enable smart building applications and workplace
enhancements.

“There are immense business opportunities for companies that take
advantage of digitalization and the latest smart building IoT
applications. However, many facility managers and business owners find

infrastructure options daunting, and prefer the support of a

Systems group, Americas Region. “Our collaboration with FSG will help us
provide even more value to customers seeking a complete solution,
particularly national and multi-location accounts. FSG has over 33
locations and more than 2,000 employees, and they have the lighting,
controls and building system expertise that Osram seeks in a
collaborative partner.”

“FSG is very excited to be working in partnership with Osram to offer
advanced lighting and smart building IoT solutions for commercial,
industrial and retail buildings,” said Joe Hill, VP of Solutions, FSG
Smart Buildings. “ENCELIUM Light Management System solutions are
