Crestron announced that it became a member of the Emerge Alliance to contribute its knowledge of delivering integrated solutions that manage and control building systems. According to Crestron, the key mission of Emerge is to create a new standard for integrating commercial building infrastructures, power, controls, and a variety of systems on a common platform. The development of this new commercial technology standard is also expected to be the foundation for future innovations in energy efficient and individually controllable devices, such as LED lighting, says the company.

According to Crestron officials, the demand for more flexible power distribution and device control solutions has focused the Alliance on the adoption of low-voltage DC power, which simplifies the installation of lighting fixtures and other devices. DC power is considered to be ideally suited for integration into the ceiling plane, because it's a safer and more flexible solution than line-voltage AC and it enables facility managers to arrange and rearrange lighting, sensors, actuators, and other devices without rewiring.

"The commercial marketplace continues to recognize the importance of going green, and it's a process that requires sophisticated systems integration," said Steve Samson, director of business development at Crestron Electronics. "We are pleased to be part of an initiative that endorses integrated technologies that maximize opportunities to conserve energy and promote sustainability in commercial building interiors."
