Deco Lighting Creates New Possibilities for Connected Building Spaces, Launches DECO PoE, Power over Ethernet Technology powered by Molex ® NCS


Deco Lighting is thrilled to introduce DECO PoE (Power over Ethernet) integrated technology, debuting in the Vector interior architectural luminaire. DECO PoE, powered by the Molex’s NCS Network, will bring a newly-conceptualized system to commercial building spaces that provide easier installation and smarter building monitoring than static LED lighting fixtures. Intended to simplify the way lighting systems connect to an IP-based infrastructure for smart control, DECO PoE introduces a new paradigm where energy-saving LED luminaires evolve into a service and become an Internet of Things (IoT) building asset that can be controlled synergistically with other building functions. Integrating Deco’s Vector luminaire with next-generation NCS networked lighting controls, transforms the lighting fixture into a beacon for data collection and a center for distributing energy, environmental, and occupancy information. DECO PoE not only provides unmatched overall system integration capabilities but will also deliver a platform that optimizes cost and provides dynamic energy savings with adaptable functionality.

Focused on researching and developing synergistic building technologies, Deco has partnered with Molex to introduce convenient and flexible smart building technologies to the market. The Molex NCS PoE Gateway is designed for fast, easy connectivity with its user interface and is compatible with standard CAT 5e or CAT6 Ethernet cables. Its low-voltage connection delivers reliable communication with lights, sensors and other devices. With DECO PoE, only the network connection needs to be made as it delivers both control and power to the luminaire — simplifying the install process. With advanced data communication capabilities, the NCS-Ready Vector luminaire delivers high quality, connected illumination to offices where superior performance, control, and reliability are of high importance.

Implementing Power over Ethernet technology not only enhances the connectivity of a building, but also provides a more flexible central building management system that aggregates real-time energy consumption data along with light status, ambient temperature, occupancy and other useful metrics. The Vector from Deco Lighting, fitted with Power over Ethernet functionality, provides an easy-to-install, turn-key system integrating intelligent building systems through this revolutionary cabling infrastructure. Next-generation DECO PoE technology from Deco Lighting acts as a low-voltage highway pairing energy savings with enhanced data aggregation, making this technology a cornerstone in the digital transformation of buildings.

Encompassing simplicity in all aspects including maintenance and security management, DECO PoE equips state-of-the-art lighting technologies with plug-and-play solutions allowing for a speedy installation. The low-voltage luminaires utilize this advanced IP-based infrastructure to leverage the Molex NCS system in powering and controlling a myriad of building assets including sensors, motors, HVAC, security, and fire alarm systems from the IT network.

Data aggregated through digital zoning and location analysis provides insight into the user’s needs and that of the building. A mashup of data points, gathered from a multi-sensor lighting system, is combined and processed into a central building analytics system. DECO PoE, together with Molex NCS-enabled sensors, is capable of adjusting the building environment in several ways, including energy-saving daylight harvesting, dynamic light scenes, light swatches, and leveraging natural daylight’s effect on the circadian cycles throughout the day. DECO PoE allows for a unique and balanced lighting system that meets the needs of any building space, from individual rooms to full buildings and factories.

Deco’s plan to introduce revolutionary technologies, including DECO PoE, to the lighting community is part of its overall strategy to research and develop products and services that not only enhance the aesthetics of a space, but also deliver connected lighting systems that personalize the user’s experience and drastically reduce energy consumption. With a systematic approach to building automation, Deco Lighting LED luminaires and DECO PoE deliver enhanced cost savings, reduced installation complexity, and create a new ecosystem of forward-thinking lighting products.

Network connected lighting systems, powered by Molex NCS, will deliver an optimal solution to designers, architects and building managers by refining controls and enabling lighting products to serve as essential conduits in the centralization of building applications. Deco Lighting’s integration of Molex NCS systems will further establish their position as pioneers in bringing smart and adaptive LED lighting solutions to market. Designed with the Molex NSC network backbone in mind, Deco is also working on an all-new semi-direct interior ambient luminaire–the Solo–that will offer four unique lens styles and an incredibly sleek profile. The Solo will be second in a line of innovative, Molex-connected luminaires from Deco Lighting and is scheduled to hit the lighting market later this year.
