Five more manufacturers sign up to Gooee’s IoT platform

The Magnificent Seven: Gooee has announced working relationships with seven OEMs

Gooee has announced it is now working in association with five more lighting equipment manufacturers ahead of LuxLive 2015, where it is launching its ‘Gooee Inside’ technology.

Gerard Lighting, Architectural FX, Mosaic Eins, Interlight and Havells Sylvania are the latest manufacturers to join John Cullen Lighting and Aurora Lighting in announcing their intention to use Gooee’s technology and assess the potential of an IoT ecosystem and its contribution to the lighting market.

Jan Kemeling, Gooee’s chief commercial officer, hopes the rise in the number of manufacturers using the platform will ensure its technology is quickly available on the market. “We are the first truly independent, openly accessible, interoperable solution for lighting OEMs,” he says. “At Gooee, we are dedicated to developing the latest technologies that exceed the market’s expectations.

“That means creating high performance smart components and software solutions that present no surprises, no disappointments, and no compromises,” he continues. “And we hope the launch of ‘Gooee Inside’ at LuxLive will attract attendees, OEMs, the media and the general public to see just how innovative our technology is.”

Chris Skelley, managing director at Architectural FX, says that Gooee’s technology will enhance its product offering: “We market and sell premium brands to the UK’s lighting specification market on national and international products,” he explains. “Signing this agreement with Gooee ensures we can further this offering to attract an increasing number of high-profile contracts.”

Gerard Lighting, whose range of lighting brands have captured 30% of the Australian market, is also excited about integrating Gooee into its product range, as its group general manager of engineering, Jason Gerard explains: “We continually search for the latest smart technology to increase the functionality and control of lighting, and feel that with ‘Gooee Inside’ products we can bring considerable benefits to consumers through its advanced sensing and wireless networking technology, complementing our existing Rapix solutions.”

Interlight CEO Casper Vulling says the partnership will help the business to grow further: “We have become a launch partner with Gooee because it is the only company, which I know of, that has developed a platform where all of the different technologies needed for a proper IoT ecosystem come together as a universal platform for the lighting industry.”

Christian Schraft, CEO at Havells-Sylvania, says this is an opportunity to add value to its client relationships: “After the introduction of LEDs we now see the lighting industry facing the next major disruption: the Internet of Things. In a future where luminaires will be increasingly connected, there are endless possibilities to integrate sensors to not only monitor and control our luminaires, but also the wider environment. Technology featuring ‘Gooee Inside’ will give us the ability to rapidly develop and pilot new applications and services and, together with our leading customers, identify the most valuable propositions.”

Michael Eiting, CEO of Mosaic Eins, the seventh OEM to announce its association with Gooee, says the technology is able to make a worldwide impact: “We are looking forward to helping developing markets realise the potential of the Internet of Things,” he explains. “As a leading lighting manufacturer to the Far East, particularly Thailand, for 25 years, the ability to work in association with Gooee ensures we can deliver the needs of specific markets that may require a different focus.”

Come and see for yourself what Gooee has to offer at LuxLive, held on 18-19 November at London’s ExCel. Gooee will be performing for the first time an interactive, theatrical performance designed to demonstrate how this technology operates in various environments.

Taking place at four intervals throughout the day – 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm – attendees will be learn what the Gooee platform can offer in terms of benefits and functionality.
