Carbyon’s first two carbon removal installations will help clean the Québec skies
Smarter and more efficient light control makes buildings, greenhouses, and warehouses save on energy costs and reduce their carbon footprint. Cosmicnode covered them: they developed a data-driven IoT platform allowing farmers and building managers to operate lighting remotely.
We featured Cosmicnode in a previous Start-up of the Day series episode. Since then, the company has expanded its business and introduced Infinity, its new platform for remote light controlling, also suited for building control. Vinay Hiremath, one of the company’s co-founders, takes us through his company’s latest developments.
“Cosmicnode has had a fantastic year. We further developed our solutions, started new partnerships, and launched into the US market. We are incredibly proud that our Multi-radio Wireless Mesh platform was named a LEDs Magazine 2023 BrightStar Awards winner. Our wireless lighting solution enables Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), lighting manufacturers, and installers to easily integrate reliable and robust wireless technology into their product ecosystem.
This recognition is a testament to our incredible team’s hard work, dedication, and exceptional talent. Receiving the LED Magazine’s BrightStar Award highlights our commitment to excellence and innovation in the Horticulture Lighting Control Industry. It is a significant milestone in our journey, showcasing our position as a front-runner in the industry and a trusted partner for our valued customers.”
“The Infinity IoT platform is an enterprise-level multi-tenant and multi-site cloud-connected lighting management system. Infinity offers advanced lighting control and monitoring solutions for large-scale lighting installations. Infinity turns every light point into a digital data point to provide value-added services on top of lighting infrastructure, providing ease of data management and allowing clients to control and monitor Cosmicnode-powered lights and other IoT devices.
Building insights can facilitate the better management and optimization of space in the building, eliminating inefficiencies. Using IoT-enabled smart systems makes operating efficiency and significant energy savings easy to achieve by automating settings such as luminaires, temperature, and air quality based on occupancy. With IoT data analytics, businesses have real-time access to the conditions and performances of the building infrastructure systems. Businesses can optimize and streamline their operations by allowing users to remotely check the performance, connectivity, and security of devices.”
“In just three years, we have already made good on our aim to provide horticulture automation for a more sustainable future. We deployed our first wireless mesh control system in the horticulture industry in the summer of 2020 in the Netherlands. Since then, we have successfully deployed more than 150,000 wireless nodes in greenhouses and buildings globally. We will continue to grow and develop, utilizing our solutions for a smart and sustainable future.”
