WR Starkey Mortgage, LLP, a regional mortgage banker based in Texas, has chosen CommScope’s Redwood Systems to outfit its new headquarters with an intelligent lighting network solution that enables operational cost reductions and achieves sustainability goals. According to a press release, thanks to the installation of Redwood lighting solutions and a high-efficiency HVAC system in its new headquarters, Starkey Mortgage received the 2013 Mortgage Technology Green Lender Award for using technology to promote sustainable business practices.
CommScope says the deployed Redwood lighting solution only required 30 days to install, and provided a way for the mortgage company to operate with a smaller environmental footprint, while realizing a significant reduction in lighting costs when compared to its previous system.
“We are only within the first year of installation and we are seeing a significant reduction in power consumption compared to the previous lighting systems at our old facility,” comments Bill Burke, chief information officer, Starkey Mortgage. “We are very happy with how the simplicity of the Redwood system allows us to control and customize the lighting while saving on energy costs.”
CommScope notes that its Redwood intelligent lighting solutions feature a unique combination of management software, sensor hardware and structured cabling designed to make facilities and IT operations more agile and efficient. A web-based management application controls LED light fixtures and sensors that track motion, temperature and light. These systems can also store the sensor data to give a more accurate depiction of how frequently an office environment is used.
“Starkey Mortgage is a great example of how an organization can use the network to get more value out of the lighting system,” concludes Dave Leonard, senior vice president of Redwood Systems, CommScope. “They are not only seeing a great reduction in operating expenses, they are tailoring their work environment to better suit the needs of their employees and create activity notifications for better security.”
