Industry-Leading Partnership Announced Between Specification Lighting Sales and Northeast Technology Partners to bring Igor's Smart Building Platform, Nexos, to the New York Market

February 13, 2019

New York City, NY - February 13th, 2019 - Specification Lighting Sales (SLS) and Northeast Technology Partners (NETP) have teamed up to bring the next generation of technology development to the lighting and smart building arena.  These two highly respected sales organizations in their respective fields have formed an industry-leading alliance to promote Igor and the Nexos platform. Combined, their expertise will allow their clients to combine premier lighting experiences and controls with advanced smart building capabilities. 

“We are absolutely thrilled to be associated with these two premier sales organizations,” said Steven L’Heureux, CEO of Igor, “in an important market such as New York, people demand the best and this partnership brings together the best of the lighting design world, the best of the IT low voltage world, and the best in the Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and Internet of Things (IoT) smart building technology.” 

Randy Kirsch, Principal of SLS Lighting agreed, “All three of the partnering organizations have compatible strengths that allow us to present Power over Ethernet to the New York design community. With completed projects in NYC and new projects on board, the reality is that PoE becomes an option for new building design. PoE is now being integrated in many of the architectural lighting product lines that SLS represents and this offers the architectural community new options to design with specification grade product that is compatible with this technology.”

Igor’s flagship product, Nexos, is a Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) IoT smart building platform that incorporates the hardware, software, and cloud analytics components to form the digital building backbone. This reliable backbone uses proven technology to deliver superior smart building experiences.
