LEDVANCE Showcasing SYLVANIA SMART+ Commercial Lighting Portfolio with Leviton at LIGHTFAIR 2018

SYLVANIA SMART+ LED Lamps and Luminaires Combine with Leviton Wireless Controls, Sensors and Mobile App for Simple Retrofit Solution

Wilmington, Mass. – At LIGHTFAIR® International (LFI®), LEDVANCE, the maker of SYLVANIA general lighting in the United States and Canada, is showcasing its SYLVANIA SMART+ Commercial Lighting portfolio in partnership with Leviton®, providing a perfect solution for upgrading any space easily with wireless controls to achieve energy and labor savings and a better occupant experience.  The customizable retrofit solution includes SYLVANIA SMART+ ZigBee® LED lamps and luminaires, Leviton Lumina RF wireless controls and sensors, and the user-friendly Leviton Neuron mobile app which enables commissioning a whole room in a few simple steps.  The system can help create a better user experience in offices, conference rooms, hospital/dentist offices, bars, restaurants, libraries and classrooms. 

With the customizable SYLVANIA SMART+ Commercial Lighting offering, contractors can wirelessly connect and control a wide assortment of SYLVANIA SMART+ ZigBee LED lamps and luminaires with Leviton switches and occupancy and daylight sensors.  Smart lighting options include dimming, RGBW and adjustable white ranging from 2700K - 6500K.  With the system, contractors can easily:

  • retrofit private offices for immediate energy savings and customized control,
  • create flexible lighting plans in open space environments that can adjust with the space as needs and requirements change,
  • configure scenes and occupancy modes in conference rooms to make meetings more productive,
  • enable lighting levels and color tuning control for educators in classrooms, and
  • create dynamic and colorful scenes in bars and restaurants.

“Up until now, wireless lighting control systems have been fairly complicated and unapproachable for the light commercial customer and can be complex to install and manage for the end customer.  Many customers don’t require advanced solutions that can link into other building automation systems like HVAC, fire, and security, along with the capability to manage satellite offices.  The hardware, installation and maintenance can easily cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and isn’t necessarily scalable for all applications,” said Aaron Ganick, Global Head of Smart Business, LEDVANCE.  “By working closely with our partner Leviton, the SYLVANIA SMART+ Commercial Lighting offering is an easy to install and use, flexible solution that can create new revenue options for contractors.  It can help them effortlessly grow their business to its potential, especially for retrofits and small-midsized businesses.  It can also meet the needs of customers that want the benefits of controls, whether in new construction or retrofit, without complexity and huge initial costs.”   


With this system, distributors can stock a few SKUs and offer customers a solution that includes the LED retrofit and dimming, multi-zone daylight harvesting, occupancy or vacancy sensing, scene control, and manual control.  For contractors, lamps can be installed without replacing existing ballasts, and both lamps and wireless controls can be installed without rewiring or additional wiring.  The Leviton Neuron App features Ladderless Commissioning™, which eases installation and configuration, and the system is easily expandable.  In addition, the easy product selection guarantees lamps and controls compatibility which addresses a key challenge for distributors and contractors by eliminating the guesswork of trying to determine which controls work with which lamps and also minimizes callbacks.  The system also enables easy energy code compliance, meeting lighting control requirements for IECC, ASHRAE 90.1 and Title 24.
