Cooper Lighting Solutions and Vizzia Technologies Leverage Smart Spaces IoT Solutions in the Healthcare Industry
Vizzia Technologies is the first Trellix-certified partner to harness Cooper Lighting Solutions’ RTLS platform to enable advanced healthcare use cases
PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. (November 12, 2020) – Cooper Lighting Solutions and Vizzia Technologies are pleased to announce that the Vizzia platform has been fully integrated with Trellix Locate, Cooper Lighting Solutions’ indoor positioning solution. Together, the systems maximize asset utilization, optimize processes and space utilization, reduce overall energy consumption and provide new safety and security capabilities that are in line with today’s healthcare needs.
By incorporating smart sensors into the luminaires, Cooper Lighting Solutions is able to provide an indoor location solution at a cost that is 30% lower than traditional Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLS) as proven at several facilities. The solution is composed of Cooper Lighting’s WaveLinx enabled luminaires, a smart lighting system offering with integrated BLE sensors, the Trellix Locate RTLS platform and Vizzia Technologies’ healthcare IoT platform.
Trellix Locate processes the aggregated data collected from WaveLinx-enabled luminaires and delivers location data to third-party platforms such as Vizzia.
“The ease at which Trellix integrates with systems such as Vizzia Technologies helps healthcare staff leverage RTLS to improve operational efficiency through effective asset management, patient and workflow optimization, infection prevention and other use cases,” said Eric Jerger, vice president and general manager of Indoor Business at Cooper Lighting Solutions. “Healthcare facilities are able to use the savings generated through their luminaire retrofits, including utility companies’ incentives and credits, to finance their RTLS system. Using their new state-of-the-art real-time location system, facilities can optimize their operations and provide new safety and security capabilities that are in line with today’s social distancing guidelines.”
By embedding its smart sensors into the luminaires, Cooper Lighting Solutions has created a revolutionary IoT sensory data network that provides much more functionality and value than standalone RTLS or lighting control systems.
“Cooper’s innovative IoT sensory system ‘Trellix’ is uniquely positioned to empower smart hospitals,” said Andrew L. Halasz, CEO of Vizzia Technologies. “We are excited to collaborate with Cooper Lighting Solutions to leverage our extensive experience as the combined solution will significantly help the healthcare industry to reduce costs, streamline processes and improve patient care.”
