The corporate space is the bread-and-butter area for
most CE pros. With many offices still empty as more
businesses move to WFH or hybrid setups, that vertical
market has been somewhat lean due to COVID-19.

Environmental Lights: Driverless Downlights Transform Commercial Projects
Low-voltage lighting is transforming
resimercial projects faster
than ever. It is easy to install and
provides highly dependable lighting
for commercial and residential
spaces. The two primary areas of
opportunity are downlighting and
accent lighting.
Low-voltage downlighting is
enabling integrators to " own
the ceiling " and expand their share of projects. Driverless
LED fixtures provide dependable, high-quality, configurable
light, with a remotely located driver. Drivers are
rack-mounted up to 400 feet from the lights and easily
managed in one location. Eliminating the driver from each
fixture eliminates the No. 1 source of heat and enables
LEDs to run cooler. Less heat in the fixture equals greater
longevity for the lights. Using driverless low-voltage fixtures
in auditoriums and houses of worship means replacing
burned out pendants high in ceilings becomes a rarity.
Low-voltage downlights also utilize less electricity than
standard fixtures while providing multiple color options like
tunable white and RGB.
The REVI system from Environmental Lights is a great
example of a driverless downlighting solution. It features
programmable, RDM-enabled power supplies and a variety
of pendants and recessed fixtures. REVI facilitates easy
installations, remote power management, and simple
integration into control systems. Environmental Lights also
offers lighting design services to configure lighting and
help win projects.
Low-voltage accent lighting provides another opportunity
for resimercial projects. Accent lighting brings the " wow
factor. " It transforms restaurants and hospitality spaces,
and sets properties apart. Applications range from toe-kick
lighting to ceiling cove lighting. A good lighting manufacturer
will help specify the right high-quality products and
then customize them to ensure simple installation and easy
integration into control systems. -Michael Krupinsky,
Vice President of Marketing, Environmental Lights
