Harvard launches award-winning lighting control solution EyeNut, the ingenious new wireless monitoring and control system for indoor lighting, from world leader in the design, development and manufacture of control products for the lighting industry Harvard Engineering, has been named as the Controls Innovation of the Year at the Lux Awards 2013.

The accolade follows the successful launch of EyeNut over the two-day LuxLive exhibition at Earls Court on 20th and 21st November. The new ingenious solution received a great reception with business development manager for indoor controls Dr Andy Davies presenting a paper at the event and visitors being offered a tour of Harvard’s stand to fully experience and understand how EyeNut works.

Judges at the Lux Awards called Harvard’s EyeNut ‘a sophisticated system in an easy-to-install and use package’. Harvard Engineering was also highly commended for the Manufacturer of the Year award.

Russell Fletcher, sales and marketing director at Harvard Engineering, commented, “We are extremely pleased that EyeNut has been named as the Lux Controls Innovation of the Year. The new control and management system is a first for the indoor lighting market and we look forward to seeing the benefits it has in installations over the coming months and years.”

EyeNut is revolutionary as for the first time it allows users to wireless manage and completely customise their lighting scheme using the innovative Graphic User Interface, accessed via a computer, laptop or tablet.
