        Crestron Wins LFI Innovation Awards at LightFair  International 2018 Tradeshow

        Crestron SolarSync™ photosensor receives top honors at largest architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference in the world.

        Rockleigh, NJ – May 16th, 2018 – Crestron, a global leader in commercial lighting control technology, announced today it received two LFI Innovation Awards at LightFair International 2018, the largest architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference in the world. The new Crestron SolarSync daylight sensor with correlated color temperature (CCT) and a luminous intensity meter, was honored at the event by an independent panel of renowned lighting professionals.
        SolarSync was designed to analyze the color temperature of the ambient light and direct the indoor lighting to automatically match the detected color when mounted outdoors or in an area exposed to plenty of natural light. This innovative sensor can drive indoor lighting to match the color and intensity of the sunlight throughout the day, or create artistic lighting scenes that make midnight feel like a sunny afternoon. SolarSync also has manual mode or inclement weather dead band settings to maximize the best lighting effect at all times with no effort.

        “Crestron is extremely proud and honored to be recognized for our innovative commercial lighting solutions,” said Fred Bargetzi, Chief Technology Officer. “These awards are validation of the hard work and ingenuity of the hundreds of engineers and visionaries in our R&D labs. They share a passion and relentless commitment to push the boundaries of what’s possible and anticipate our customers’ needs.”
        The LFI Innovation Awards celebrate the ingenuity, creativity and resourcefulness of our industry’s manufacturers – their researchers, developers, scientists, and industrial designers. They all sit at the forefront of delivering integrated solutions to the market - on our journey to digital lighting systems.
