Crestron Joins EMerge Alliance™ Improving Commercial Interiors

ROCKLEIGH, New Jersey – Crestron has become a member of the EMerge Alliance to contribute its expertise in delivering fully integrated solutions that manage and control disparate building systems intelligently and efficiently. Creating a new standard for integrating commercial building infrastructures, power, controls and a wide variety of systems on a common platform is a key mission of EMerge. The development of this new commercial technology standard will also lay the groundwork for future innovations in energy-efficient and individually controllable devices, such as LED lighting.

Today’s workplace is dominated by fixed wiring, making upgrades and retrofits complicated and costly. The demand for more flexible power distribution and device control solutions has focused the Alliance on the adoption of low-voltage DC power, which simplifies the installation of lighting fixtures and other devices. A safer and more flexible solution than line-voltage AC, DC power is ideally suited for integration into the ceiling plane, enabling facility managers to arrange and rearrange lighting, sensors, actuators, and other devices without rewiring.

Through seamless integration of solar, wind and other new energy sources, and interior electrical loads such as lighting and controls, EMerge is committed to making commercial buildings more flexible, energy efficient and sustainable than ever before. As the global leader of low-voltage integrated systems, Crestron provides wired and wireless solutions for environmental and device control that will help make the EMerge vision a reality.

“The commercial marketplace continues to recognize the importance of going green, and it’s a process that requires sophisticated systems integration,? said Steve Samson, Director of Business Development, Crestron Electronics, Inc. “We are pleased to be part of an initiative that endorses integrated technologies that maximize opportunities to conserve energy and promote sustainability in commercial building interiors.?
