Redefining the Boundaries of Lighting

"Expanding the boundaries of lightingTM" is not just a tagline for Acuity Brands, but a vision of how we see the lighting industry. Since we embarked upon our journey as an organization, growth driven by the evolution of technology has played a pivotal role, guiding us as we move into the future. This impacts our roadmaps for our products and solutions as well as our strategic decisions taken in order to enhance our product offerings or technological services via acquisition to meet the growing needs of our customers.

Acquiring LocusLabs, a leading indoor mapping and location platform, plays a key role to further transform our indoor location services offering. LocusLabs has the platform and tools that enable airline, airport and smart workplace applications to deploy location-aware technologies. These technologies are increasingly needed to help people find their way, to assist operators in management of their critical assets and to provide them with additional digital tools for managing the human experience in spaces.

The combination of LocusLabs technology with the Atrius® IoT platform from Acuity Brands will provide venues with an indoor positioning system that can be rapidly deployed and easily maintained, enabling visitor and employee wayfinding, asset tracking and business analytics. As an organization, we are excited to demonstrate to our customers how the LocusLabs solution enhanced with our Atrius services can transform navigating indoor experiences.

In their Magic Quadrant published January 28, 2019, Gartner recognized Acuity Brands as a Visionary in the 2019 Magic Quadrant for Indoor Locations Services, Global. Get the report here or read an article highlighting the capabilities of the solution.
