EnlightedBased on its recent analysis of the North American building Internet of Things (IoT) platforms market, Frost & Sullivan recognized Enlighted, Inc. with the 2020 North America Company of the Year Award. Enlighted’s IoT platform captures granular data about what is happening inside a building. In the time of COVID, the company’s smart sensors and applications are being used to help businesses stay productive and safe by minimizing exposure risk in the workplace.

“What’s unique about this technology is it helps organizations solve many challenges from achieving sustainability goals to better utilizing space and most recently helping reduce the spread of COVID-19,” says Dennis Marcell Victor, senior research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. This year, Enlighted launched a new IoT surface sensor for the quick deployment of IoT technology at scale throughout buildings in an enterprise. It also developed solutions to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace with the launch of its risk reduction and contact tracing application, Safe.

“Safe incorporates real-time location capabilities to provide employers with a workplace digital contract tracing and risk reduction application with methods to safeguard employee privacy. Organizations can also leverage data from Enlighted’s sensors to determine how people are moving through buildings, reconfigure office layouts, set and enforce maximum occupancy levels, create alerts for when those occupancy levels are exceeded and focus cleaning efforts on high-traffic areas,” says Victor.

Acquired by Siemens in 2018, Enlighted previously earned the Frost & Sullivan North American New Product Innovation Award in 2019.
