Cooper Lighting Solutions Introduces Trellix Locate

Through the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, health care facilities have remained open and operational, providing patients with the utmost care while working to keep medical professionals healthy. Cooper Lighting Solutions is helping hospitals marry safety with efficiency with Trellix Locate, designed to work specifically within the health care industry to easily locate assets and people in real time. Customers can create safer spaces and slow the spread of germs through the use of Real-Time Location System (RTLS) technology, which works within the Trellix Smart Spaces IoT Platform to limit waiting room time, track real-time use of operating rooms and hospital beds, and more.

As a leading provider of forward-thinking lighting solutions, Cooper Lighting Solutions developed Trellix Locate to help health care facilities improve asset utilization rates by 40% and eliminate annual shrinkage rates of equipment by 5-7% while improving staff and patient workflow and infection prevention. By integrating installation, materials and services, Trellix Locate is an all-in-one offering of lighting, control system and RTLS, providing customers with a 30% cost savings compared to competitors who may require multiple partners and fees for each aspect.

“We have an opportunity to make a difference in a world that is adjusting to a new normal. The health care industry has been utilizing RTLS technology for years, but only recently have we seen just how important it can be in helping to keep people safe and equipment available,” said Kraig Kasler, president, Cooper Lighting Solutions, a business unit of Signify. “Offering these capabilities with unparalleled innovation and efficiencies is reflective of our commitment to help this crucial industry operate at its full capacity.”

Developed over the course of the past year with early roll out with partners ZulaFly and Vizzia, both well-versed in health care RTLS operations, the technology supports hospitals and medical offices in efforts to properly utilize space, reduce overall energy consumption and enforce new safety and security restrictions that are in line with social distancing guidelines.

Trellix Locate uses sensory data through Bluetooth-powered tags, such as ID badges and patient bracelets, and interactive maps and tables with rich searching capabilities to allow users to quickly locate assets, such as respirators and monitors, and view patient status and conditions in real-time. Spaces and alarms can be configured to help administrators make informed decisions around space management to align with social distancing practices.
