Origin, Vivid Technology partner to offer intelligent lighting platform

Vivid Technology and Origin Energy have partnered to develop LightingFlex, a lighting-as-a-service product, leveraging Vivid Technology’s intelligent Internet-of-Things (IoT) lighting platform MATRIXX.

Vivid Technology states that its MATRIXX intelligent IoT lighting platform reduces lighting energy costs by as much as 90 per cent and is up to 74 per cent more efficient than typical LED systems.

According to Vivid Technology, MATRIXX has already been installed in warehouses and manufacturing facilities across a large number of major blue-chip companies, delivering in excess of $5 million of lighting energy savings and over 5,500 tonnes of Co2 emission saving in Australia.

LightingFlex customers will receive lighting-as-a-service over an agreed number of years, delivered by the MATRIXX intelligent IoT lighting platform, managed and monitored without any upfront cost for an agreed contract term. At completion of this term, customers will have the option to either upgrade or buy the current MATRIXX intelligent IoT lighting platform outright for a nominal price.

Under this partnership, Origin will be responsible for the management of all sales and marketing of Vivid Technology’s MATRIXX intelligent lighting platform to Origin’s current and new customers. Origin will offer MATRIXX as part of a tailored energy solution which can include electricity supply bundled with solar (“Solar Flex”) and intelligent lighting solutions through LightingFlex, managed and supported by a single Origin account manager.

Vivid Technology, will be responsible for all aspects of installing its MATRIXX intelligent IoT lighting platform, including detailed on-site audits, engineered lighting designs, installation, operation, maintenance and on-going monitoring and analytics.

MATRIXX IoT lighting provides industry leading energy efficiency, cost savings, carbon reductions and enhanced lighting output as well as unparalleled operational insight. These insights are derived from analysing the rich data collected from MATRIXX via Vivid Technology’s Klarity cloud-based system and embedded sensors; sensors include ambient temperature, passive security, heat mapping, building intelligence, daylight harvesting and manufacturing environment sensing.

“Our large energy users are telling us they want simple and easy access to energy efficiency solutions, so we’re providing this through a one-stop-shop.

“We’re pleased to be able to offer Lightning Flex as it can help us deliver significant savings for customers and adds to Origin’s growing product portfolio specifically tailored for large energy users and business customers,” Origin general manager, Business Energy and Solar, Ryan Willemsen-Bell said.
