Hubbell Lighting and TOTUS Solutions Inc., based in Austin, Texas, a provider of outdoor lighting based security platforms, announced a strategic partnership to develop outdoor light fixtures with state-of-the-art surveillance technology.
With over 125 years of expertise in the electrical industry, Hubbell Lighting advances lighting and controls technologies that dramatically improve efficiency and reduce costs for virtually any lighting application. Under the new partnership, select Hubbell Lighting outdoor fixtures will be available with TOTUS Solutions’ surveillance technology. TOTUS Solutions has combined into a single integrated solution superior megapixel IP video surveillance, multi-day media storage and secure wireless communications, transforming passive surveillance into Active Deterrence to help prevent and deter crime instead of just recording it while it occurs.
“Our partnership with TOTUS Solutions adds an entirely new dynamic to Hubbell Lighting’s value proposition. Not only can we assist our clients with their lighting, energy efficiency and building automation needs, but we will now offer video surveillance, two-way audio communications and advanced site analytics,” said Richard Abernethy, vice president of Hubbell Outdoor Lighting Brands.
“We are excited to work with Hubbell Lighting and their engineering experts to enhance their outdoor fixtures with our advanced surveillance technology,” said Gregory Williams, CEO of TOTUS Solutions.
Last week at LIGHTFAIR International, Hubbell Lighting displayed Sterner Lighting’s Executive RT-21 LED fixture with TOTUS Solutions’ Active Deterrence surveillance system. The system utilizes a hemispheric 360-degree view camera with recording and real-time viewing along with two-way audio for live listening and communication via an amplified speaker. Fixture-to-fixture data transfer takes place through a 900 MHz wireless auto-mesh network.
