Emergency lighting management system leverages IoT technology for safer buildings and lower maintenance costs

ABB presents a new cloud-based smart emergency lighting management system for connected buildings, Nexus®Pro. The system uses IoT technology to reduce maintenance costs and ensures peace of mind year-round for high traffic areas like hospitals, universities, commercial and industrial buildings.

“Emergency lighting is essential to every public building. Functioning lighting is not only required by the National Electrical Code but also enhances public safety during an emergency,” said David Blier, Business Manager for the North American emergency lighting division at ABB Electrification. “Using NexusPro can help building owners and managers easily maintain, test and manage these units to comply with code and regulation right from their smart device.”

The Nexus®Pro system features an iOS app that allows set up, maintenance, and full control of the entire emergency lighting installation. The self-maintaining, smart emergency lighting system uses cutting-edge IoT technology to run self-diagnostics 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. This app provides building owners and facility managers an automatic alert if an exit or emergency light fails a monthly report. It also informs the user which emergency light needs to be repaired and the part numbers that need to be replaced.

In addition, authorized personnel can access the data held on the emergency lighting system. This data can be emailed, shared and stored to provide a permanent record of the health of an emergency lighting system.
