Blue Ridge Technologies® Expands Unified Lighting Control
Aperio® platform unifies advanced lighting applications with Building Automation Systems
Marietta, GA (June 3, 2013) – Most advanced lighting control systems available in the market today are proprietary and require gateways which inherently limit the Building Automation Systems (BAS) capabilities. Blue Ridge Technologies, the leading manufacturer of unified lighting control, announced the expansion of open and unified lighting control with the release of the Aperio® platform. The Aperio® platform enables more advanced lighting control applications (daylight harvesting, occupancy / vacancy detection, dimming, and presets) to become an integral part of the BAS without gateways.
“We know that building owners benefit from non-proprietary control systems, and we continue to advocate for open lighting control systems and tighter integration with the BAS,” said Steve Pachal, Director of Technology at Blue Ridge Technologies. “We design and develop open lighting control solutions that are easily unified with existing building infrastructure to lower costs and maximize energy savings and comfort.”
The Aperio® platform is the company’s seventh generation lighting controller, and it will be rolled out over the next several months to a nationwide network of over 100 dealers. The Aperio® platform will be featured in selected Blue Ridge Technologies products including; Relay Panels (RP), Retrofit Interiors (RI), Retrofit Kits (RK), and Zone Controllers (ZC).

About Unified Lighting Control
Unified Lighting Control completes the BAS, incorporating lighting and HVAC controls on the same network. This network consolidation eliminates surplus hardware required for stand-alone and gateway lighting control. As a result, installation and maintenance costs decrease while simple and complete building control increases energy savings. This approach provides more savings for less cost. When a complete Building Automation System (BAS) is required, Unified Lighting Control is the superior lighting control solution.
