Cree has introduced SmartCast® Manager, software that addresses energy savings.

The LED-connected lighting intelligence platform has a OneButton™ Setup that commissions an entire building with a solitary stroke. There is visibility into real-time data analytics to identify advanced energy saving strategies.

Data can be used to track crowds in case of emergency, manage the usage of the HVAC system based on building capacity or offer personal control of lights to improve employee productivity, the company said.

“Cree's SmartCast® Manager enables IoT for buildings. It serves as the foundational software that can enable limitless possibilities and applications through better light, including emergency wayfinding and energy demand responsiveness,” said David Elien, Cree senior vice president, lighting.

SmartCast Manager's OneButton Setup uses visual light communication and intelligent algorithms to create logical occupancy and switch groups
