New connected lighting solutions empower city leaders to improve the safety and quality of life in their communities and streamline facilities management and operations for businesses worldwide.
The latest illumination innovations were on display at LightFair International (LFI) May 8-10, 2018, in Chicago.
Eaton was one of the companies showcasing their solutions for building professionals.
"Connected technology is quickly becoming an expectation in all aspects of our lives. We're helping our customers not only realize the efficiency and convenience of controlling light but also use data and insights to address more complex challenges," said Kraig Kasler, president, Eaton's Lighting Division.
