NuSutus, a Canadian provider of global enterprise communications and managed network solutions, has acquired compatriot firm Relight Solutions, a smart building integrator for commercial buildings.
NuSutus said that this acquisition will allow the firm to better support commercial buildings, retail stores, and quick-service restaurants.
Relight designs and implements intelligent systems for lighting, building controls, equipment monitoring, and EV chargers. The company also recently implemented what it claims to be the largest networked Bluetooth-controlled lighting system in Canada.
“Relight has a proven record in the development and deployment of advanced Internet-of-Things (IoT) systems for commercial customers across Canada” said Geoff Bell, CEO of NuSutus. “We’re thrilled to bring Relight into the NuSutus family, and are confident that this acquisition will advance the belief that integrated and intelligent communication between buildings and organizations is crucial to increase productivity, revenue, and sustainability.”
As part of the acquisition, Relight will maintain its existing management and operations in the cities of Vancouver and Calgary.
“The fit with NuSutus is a natural one, and allows us to deliver the comprehensive, multi-location managed solutions that allow our customers to grow while saving money and reducing their environmental footprint,” said Dan Lafferty, president of Relight Solutions.
Founded in 2013, Relight’s advanced control solutions enable decreased energy consumption, real-time data analytics, intelligent controls, as well as the use of artificial intelligence to monitor equipment for failure.
Relight installs non-invasive sensors to an outgoing electrical wire to monitor the flow of electricity and measure the sign’s electrical usage. The company highlighted that no maintenance is required on the sensors.
The company then synchronizes the sensors to analytics software which transmits energy consumption data wirelessly to a cloud-based analytics platform in real time. Relight’s platform provides clients with real time reports and insight on their electrical energy consumption, which can be used to optimize operations and cut energy costs.
Relight also specializes in wireless and IoT lighting controls, which allow users to reduce energy and maintenance costs.
NuSutus has developed a suite of technologies for multi-location enterprises to increase profitability and reliability through an integrated technology platform and a managed network solution. The platform consists of a telephony routing system, distributed networking, VoIP, and software applications. In addition, their solution enables increased automation with AI call handling that utilizes Natural Processing Language.
