PhotonStar LED Group plc (AIM: PSL, "PhotonStar" or “the Group”), the British designer and manufacturer of smart LED lighting solutions, has commenced shipping of its HalcyonTM next generation retrofit home lighting system. HalcyonTM is an intelligent wireless retrofit lighting system that includes sensors and is controlled wirelessly by a powerful, low cost server. It utilises the Group‟s proprietary ChromaWhite colour- tuneable technology and provides “Circadian” lighting that changes throughout the day to simulate daylight, with positive effects on health and wellbeing. The system was developed in the UK with the support of a grant from the Department of Energy and Climate Change. HalcyonTM is a highly compatible data centric solution with an open interface for developers, and PhotonStar aims to collaborate with partners looking to provide new services through the data that can be gathered by the system. The same technology will be incorporated into commercial products. James McKenzie, Chief Executive of PhotonStar LED, said: “The launch of this first wireless product signals a step change for PhotonStar. Our HalcyonTM wireless control technology can provide practical energy saving and Circadian lighting solutions featuring ChromaWhite, for the very substantial retrofit market. “With the majority of buildings for the next decade already in existence, the capability to install advanced technology, without the high cost and installation inconvenience of wired controls, now opens up a considerable market opportunity for our smart lighting solutions.” www.photonstarled.com
