smartengine offers more than profitable savings in terms of electricity and operating costs. It makes rooms and buildings intelligent and agile. The Luminaires create a finemeshed network of sensors, which supply real time data on Brightness, Temperature and Presence. This data provides continuous live climate and occupancy status of a facilitiy, ideal for improving operations in terms of efficiency and safety.

system smartengine


The patented smartengine technology consists of only a few components:

  • smartengine: the central unit connects up to 48 sensors and supplies connected LED luminaires with regulated DC voltage.
  • sensors: monitor the room intelligently (IoT) and transmit sensory data to the smartengine in real time.
  • smartdirector: manages up to 40 smartengines or 2,000 sensors. Interfaces for BACnet and BMS are provided via an integrated Open API.
  • software: holistic management of the system (web-based) and various apps for control, visualization and evaluation via smart devices.

Production sites are located in Forest, VA and Bratislava, SK. Continuous further development of hardware and software takes place in San Jose, CA and Bad Homburg, DE.

smartengine sustainably combines leading-edge functionality with great bene ts to people and the environment.

smartmanager webservice & dashboard


The smartdirector dashboard displays current and cumulative information about the entire smartengine system.


  • total energy consumption
  • Average building temperature
