Lighting controls company Lutron has announced its “…acquisition of the Limelight wireless outdoor lighting control system created by Michigan-based, strategic innovation firm Twisthink and its partner company, TwistHDM.”

As the press release states, “Limelight is a wireless lighting control solution for outdoor and industrial facilities that provides remote control and management, saves energy, and enhances facility safety. With the simplicity of its wireless fixture-level control architecture, it also helps ensure code compliance and streamlines the specification and design process.”

This past May, the two companies launched Limelight by Lutron, which enabled Lutron to add an exterior lighting controls system to its established portfolio of interior controls and automated shading solutions. “The purchase of Limelight is the logical next step in the relationship between Lutron and TwistHDM," said Scott Hanna, Senior Vice President, Lutron in a prepared statement. Limelight by Lutron was a terrific opportunity to deliver a simplified outdoor lighting solution that was part of a portfolio of indoor and outdoor smart building controls. Acquiring Limelight offers the potential for an even wider range of IoT solutions. With this new capability, we look forward to what we can do to fulfill our Number One principle: Take care of our customers with superior goods and services.”

The Limelight by Lutron platform enables control of interior and exterior lighting from a single dashboard, making it particularly appealing for multi-building facilities and campuses. “Our Twisthink team created Limelight in 2008 as part of a goal to produce the smartest outdoor lighting control system in the world,” said Bob Niemiec, Managing Partner at Twisthink and TwistHDM. “Establishing an alliance with Lutron, known for its long and innovative history, succeeded beyond our expectations. Limelight will be a key part in creating lighting solutions that serve the public, save energy, and support our customers’ aspirations.”
