Acuity Brands' Jesse Collier to Speak at RealComm, Showcasing De-Risking Smart Building Tech Deployments

ATLANTA, JUNE 12, 2023 – Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) announced today that Jesse Collier, Senior Product Manager at Acuity Brands, will be speaking at RealComm 2023, the premier industry event focused on automated business solutions and state-of-the-art enterprise technologies for the commercial and corporate real estate industry.

Collier will be participating in the panel discussion titled "Test for Success: De-Risking Smart Building Tech Deployments" on Wednesday, June 14 at 5 PM PST. This panel will discuss the pitfalls of an unstructured approach to deploying new technology and highlight the importance of investing time to evaluate and understand customer use cases to ensure successful system implementations.

With a decade of experience at Acuity Brands, Collier has held various roles, including Product Management, Design and Application Engineering, and Technical Support. Throughout his career, he has been involved in all phases of product implementation, design, development, and management, with a specialization in network infrastructure and wireless systems.

Collier's expertise extends to the nLight® Lighting Controls brand, where he serves as a product management point of contact for cybersecurity matters. He played a pivotal role in the launch of Acuity Brands' groundbreaking end-to-end remote connectivity project, which integrates hardware, software, and a secure cloud portal. This innovation enables lighting control professionals to provide same-day service to customers through cellular SIMs, revolutionizing the industry's responsiveness.

Additionally, Collier was instrumental in the development of nLight’s Autonomous Bridging Technology (ABT), a firmware enhancement for the nLight product portfolio. ABT not only quadrupled the effective range of the company's wireless controls offerings, but also increased product reliability while significantly reducing the cost of networked deployments through decreased reliance on gateway hardware.

RealComm will take place June 14-15, 2023, in Las Vegas, NV. To learn more about the event and Collier's panel discussion, please visit the site.
