DLC Places Igor on Qualified List

DesignLights Consortium® Awards Igor a Place on its Qualified Product List for Nexos, an IoT Smart Building Platform with Integrated Advanced Lighting Controls

February 5, 2019

DES MOINES, IA - February 5th, 2019 - The DesignLights Consortium (DLC), a non-profit organization dedicated to collaborating with utilities on energy efficiency programs such as rebates, awarded Igor the distinction of being qualified by the DLC and listed on its Qualified Products List (QPL). This allows those who install Igor’s Nexos, a Power-over-Ethernet based IoT Smart Building Platform with advanced lighting controls, to be eligible for utility rebates nationwide.

The DLC is highly regarded by the utilities and energy sector for its expertise and innovation. Continuing with its tradition of innovation, the DLC began to accept applications for qualification from PoE-based lighting control systems within the past year. As a result, Igor worked with the DLC extensively to meet or exceed every required component to achieve qualification. Experts from the DLC interviewed Igor’s customers, conducted product demos, reviewed all of Igor’s extensive product documentation on Nexos and its lighting controls technology, analyzed Igor’s case studies, and conducted its own product reviews to verify Igor’s claims.

Achieving qualification with the DLC is a significant step - both for Igor’s customers who are eligible for rebates on their Power-over-Ethernet platform, and for Igor as this continues to be objective 3rd party validation on the high quality of Nexos and its technology.

“This is a very qualified and respected non-profit organization that has recognized the robust engineering that has gone into Igor’s IoT Smart Building Platform,” said Steve L’Heureux, CEO of Igor, “and to receive qualification from the DLC is something we are very proud of - it’s also exciting to know that our customers and partners will realize an enhanced ROI from the extra engineering effort we’ve invested in our solutions.”  

This qualification has immediate benefits to those interested in using a PoE Interested in their facilities by allowing Igor’s technology to be a qualified product with local utilities. To learn more about installing Igor’s PoE IoT platform, Nexos, interested parties may contact:

  2. The DLC for more information on their Networked LIghting Controls (NLC) Program
  3. Their local utility provider on LED lighting and controls rebate programs

Very few companies have achieved DLC qualification for their PoE-based lighting and building controls systems, and even fewer are able to list their emergency lighting and cybersecurity qualifications. This puts Igor in a market-leading position with Nexos.
