Harvard launches cloud-based EyeNut hub

Harvard Engineering, world leader in the design, development and manufacture of energy saving solutions for the lighting industry, has turned to the ‘cloud’ for the central control of its ingenious, award-winning wireless monitoring and management system for indoor lighting, EyeNut.

Every EyeNut installation requires one hub, a central server which was previously a physical device. However, the hub will now be cloud-hosted to provide further benefits to users of the EyeNut solution, including improved security, stability, accessibility, and flexibility, as well as a reduction in installation time and in the number of hardware units required to be maintained on site.

The cloud-hosted solution means that Harvard can guarantee server uptime to the client, and also ensures that the control system is future-proof with regular software and firmware upgrades being available to users as soon as they are released.  This also guarantees a higher level of network security for the duration of the installation.

EyeNut gives users full control and monitoring of their indoor lights, resulting in energy and cost savings. The hub hosts the user interface, reporting and analysing data from the installation, and is capable of supporting access from multiple users across multiple sites.

Andy Davies, business development manager for indoor controls at Harvard, commented, “By turning to the cloud for the hosting of the EyeNut hub, we are not only simplifying the installation process but also providing additional benefits to our customers. EyeNut is revolutionising the indoor lighting market and we hope to further this by turning to cloud-hosting for the EyeNut hub.”

EyeNut was launched at LuxLive in November last year, winning the Controls Innovation of the Year Award at the Lux Awards.
