Cooper Lighting Solutions’ Trellix Locate Helps Create Safe and Healthy Spaces as Commercial Offices and Schools Look to Reopen

RTLS platform designed for the healthcare industry finds new ways to aid in the return of workers and students as the world adapts to a “new normal"

PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. – In a world that is using new measures to create safer spaces and slow the spread of germs, Cooper Lighting Solutions is helping customers solve these complex problems with Trellix Locate, a Real-Time Location System (RTLS) application that works within the Trellix Smart Spaces IoT Platform. With demonstrated performance in the healthcare field, Trellix Locate can be configured for the commercial office and education sectors as businesses and schools reopen.

Trellix Locate enables companies to use connected lighting for navigation and room occupancy management. For commercial office environments, office managers can better understand employee interactions, conference room use, desk space reservations and more, all while maintaining social distancing rules. Trellix Locate can also help to track conference room cleaning schedules to align with CDC guidelines and help contain the spread of viruses and infections.

As an educational institution solution, Trellix Locate can help track room use and student location to further help educators, students and visitors enforce social distancing rules while allowing facility and development planners to understand growing space needs. The application effectively monitors real-time occupancy data, allowing school officials to identify the most densely populated areas in the building and set occupancy limitations. Data collected in real-time can also identify any high-traffic areas that may need to be cleaned more frequently.

“We have an opportunity to make a difference in a world that is adjusting to a new normal. As the world begins to re-open, businesses and schools can use RTLS to quickly solve complex issues that they either didn’t face a few months ago or have escalated to a critical need in  light of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Kraig Kasler, president, Cooper Lighting Solutions, a business unit of Signify, the world’s leader in lighting. “After demonstrating its effectiveness in the healthcare sector, we are confident that Trellix Locate offers solutions for a number of other industries.”

Trellix Locate utilizes sensory data through Bluetooth®-powered tags, such as administrator ID badges, and interactive maps and tables with rich searching capabilities to allow users to quickly locate assets and people in real-time. Spaces and alarms can be configured to help administrators make informed decisions around space management to align with social distancing practices. By integrating all aspects of the platform, like the installation, materials and services, Trellix Locate is an all-in-one offering of lighting, control system and RTLS, providing customers with a 30% cost savings compared to competitors who may require multiple partners and fees for each aspect.

“With Trellix, Cooper Lighting Solutions provides businesses with an affordable, secure and smart system that goes beyond RTLS to achieve optimal management of spaces and assets,” said Kasler. “Trellix is solving today’s complex problems while also providing businesses with a connected solution that assures they’re well positioned for future needs.”
