DIM-10-150 Intelligent Lighting Control Receives Elite
Internet of Things Industry Award

Huntsville, Alabama (January 15, 2014) – Synapse Wireless, a leader in developing proven, scalable connectivity solutions based on their award-winning SNAP® wireless mesh technology, announced today that its DIM-10-150 intelligent wireless lighting control has received a 2014 M2M Evolution IoT Excellence Award presented by TMC and Crossfire Media.

The 2014 M2M Evolution IoT Excellence Award honors innovative products that support the availability of information being deduced, inferred and directly gathered from sensors, systems and anything else that is supporting better business and personal decisions.

Machine to machine (M2M), otherwise known as the Internet of Things (IoT), is the next revolution in information technology fuelled as component parts of computers (wireless chips, sensors, memory, storage, CPU) continue to get smaller and cheaper, and as Internet connectivity prices drop and coverage grows. It is increasingly possible to build connected computers into devices or ‘things,’ such as light fixtures, medical devices, patient bracelets, combustion engines, kitchen equipment, merchandise racks, electric meters or solar panels, transforming the way companies approach new business solutions. Synapse’s innovative SNAP® IoT operating system provides a unique approach to these markets, setting Synapse apart from its technology competitors, with proven solutions across multiple verticals including intelligent lighting, solar monitoring, foodservice, healthcare and retail.

The M2M IoT Excellence Award recognizes Synapse’s DIM-10-150, which is an intelligent wireless lighting solution providing remote control and monitoring via a wireless mesh network of connected, smart node devices. These devices collect and report data about energy use real-time, which can be used by the customer to make informed decisions and proactively address critical issues. In addition, the solution provides dimming and true on/off functionality while supporting a wide range of input voltages. Synapse is the only IoT technology company that provides smart lighting solutions for both indoor and outdoor environments, making it possible for businesses to rely on Synapse for a variety of lighting needs.

“Our wireless lighting solutions offer powerful new ways to provide intelligence, streamline operations, and enable more control for new and existing lighting systems. From faster and easier commissioning to automated response to preset conditions, Synapse gives building owners, agents, specifiers, and manufacturers innovative new ways to drive system efficiency through automation and data-driven decision making,” says General Manager of Synapse’ Lighting Division, Kathryn Caspar. “We are honored to receive this award and look forward to the continued development of solutions that will transform the lighting industry for years to come.”

“It is my pleasure to recognize the Synapse DIM-10-150 with a M2M Evolution IoT Excellence Award for its excellence in innovation.” said Carl Ford, CEO & Community Developer, Crossfire Media. “Synapse is a proven leader and true pioneer within the M2M & IoT industry; I look forward to seeing Synapse’s future successes.”

The winners of the 2014 M2M Evolution IoT Excellence Award will be
