A U.S. retail chain was seeking cost-effective solutions for outdated lighting and ever-increasing, high energy costs. Our customer sought to reduce energy costs by upgrading to LED lights and by controlling lights and thermostats with an advanced control platform. The goal for the upgraded lighting was to promote sales by providing a fresh, uniform, store environment in all their stores and by improving the visual appeal of their products.
The retail chain had a broad mix of different store buildings ranging in size from 15,000 to 55,000 square feet with a variety of lighting fixtures and diverse configurations of HVAC systems. Their stores were located across many states in the U.S. They were in the market for three years searching for a comprehensive remote control/monitoring platform that could provide enterprise solutions for driving savings, operational efficiencies, asset digitization, and future automation capabilities.
FSC AND TITANIUM PARTNERSHIP

FSC provided the lighting solution resulting in substantial cost savings and improving the visual appeal of merchandise to give an exceptionally improved shopper experience.
From its vast lighting portfolio, FSC offers the highest quality and easily affordable lighting solutions for their customers. FSC used the L28500 Series which is a multi-purpose, customizable, lighting solution with premium performance and construction durability. Using energy-efficient LED lighting combined with an innovative EnOcean wireless control strategy, FSC was able to achieve a substantial reduction in energy consumption, but that’s only half the story.
Titanium provided the advanced cloud-based platform for monitoring, control, and analytics with capabilities for driving cost savings and for cost-efficient enterprise management.
Titanium uses highly sophisticated and flexible rules to remotely and locally control and monitor lights by time and date including other control methods such as occupancy sensors, local switches, light sensors, and astronomical clock for outdoor lights. Titanium offers unlimited permutations for grouping lights (e.g., zone control) which can be easily changed at any given time.
Titanium is uniquely designed for managing multiple stores with multi-region locations:
- Open global platform that is expandable, scalable and interoperable
