PhotonStar LED Group Plc
Partnership with major housing association
PhotonStar LED Group Plc (AIM: PSL, "PhotonStar", the "Company" or the "Group"), the British designer and manufacturer of smart LED lighting solutions and cloud based building management services, announces that it has entered into a partnership with a major housing association in the south of England (the "Partnership") to help deliver the Association's Smart Estates vision.
The Association is one of the largest in the UK and manages over 80,000 homes. As part of the Partnership, the Association will deploy a trial to assess the scalability of a number of the solutions within PhotonStar's V2 halcyon cloudBMSTM suite of applications ("Halcyon V2") to enhance safety and the ability to remotely manage sites. These Halcyon V2 products are more mature than the other products the Association has tested previously and several other promising technologies will also form part of the trials.
The main applications that will be assessed for estate management by the Association are energy monitoring, critical assets monitoring (including heating and cooling), emergency lighting remote testing (including compliance reporting), temperature monitoring of water systems to reduce legionella risk (including compliance reporting) and general environmental monitoring.
The aim of the Partnership is to digitise the management of the Association's estate in order to reduce operating costs, allow residents to visualise building performance and manage issues to enhance customer experience.
As part of the Partnership, the Company will refine its Halcyon V2 software and products in line with the Association's requirements to deliver the Smart Estates vision following the trials. Data from the trials will also be integrated with other systems the Association uses.
James McKenzie, Chief Executive of PhotonStar, said:
"Following the release of Halcyon V2 in May 2018, this Partnership represents a further step along the path of the Group's transformation into a software and services business.
The opportunity to work with the Association as part of their Smart Estates vision is one we are very pleased to be part of. I look forward to providing further updates regarding the Partnership in due course."
