Power management company Eaton has announced that it is joining the Smart Cities Council (SCC) as a North American Associate Partner as part of the company’s effort to simplify the path for deploying connected solutions in communities. The collaboration brings Eaton’s connected lighting expertise to critical smart city stakeholders, helping develop solutions for their specific needs.

“We look forward to working with the Smart Cities Council as they help cities tap into the transformative power of smart technology,” said Patrick Walker, vice president and general manager, Outdoor and Architectural Products, Eaton’s Lighting Division. “IoT-connected smart devices can help build safer, more efficient communities – and it all starts with connected lighting. By using the physical light fixture to connect buildings and outdoor spaces, cities can have full system control and optimization at their fingertips, making it easier than ever to rise to the municipal challenges of today and tomorrow.”

Lighting is key for deploying IoT-connected solutions in communities, and Eaton is working with cities to help navigate the complexities of connected lighting. Eaton offers cohesive, reliable and simplified full-spectrum solutions for cities’ connected lighting needs.

“The Smart Cities Council is working to advance cities’ livability, workability and sustainability across the globe,” said Jesse Berst, chairman, Smart Cities Council. “Eaton’s expertise will help us increase our understanding of the role lighting plays in connected communities while providing our smart city stakeholders with solutions to advance their smart initiatives.”
