PE.AMI is the ultra-low power multipurpose and bidirectional broadband/narrowband wireless sensor network platform truly enabling the ‘Internet of Things’ concept providing native interoperability through open standards, therefore granting a future proof choice to customers. It enables such applications as streetlight management, Advanced Meter Reading for gas, water and electricity, EV chargers management, traffic management, and many more. Allowing various services on the same network, at once or in the time, it suits the needs of Cities, municipalities and utility companies, but also fits the requirements of private or public facilities looking for indoor and outdoor lighting control solutions also supporting additional resource management.
“Paradox Engineering’s technology is the perfect complement to our offer as it will help customers to get the maximum from their Luminaid’s products today and in the future, thanks to a scalable platform also protecting their investments.” states Chris Boomars, CEO at Luminaid. “Our customers will benefit by this partnership which will ensure they get a reliable solution based on high quality hardware and network control platform.”

Down this new challenging and promising path, both companies bring their respective solid expertise. In fact, Luminaid’s research & development expertise in LED technology goes back to the origin of LED lighting and has made a direct contribution to the development of the very first functional white LED lamps. On the other hand, Paradox Engineering holds a solid track record of lighting management and Smart City deployments spanning Cities such as Paris and San Francisco, besides other Smart City projects in Europe and in the world.
