Open Technology’s intelligent lighting control system, LiGO, has been shortlisted for Building Technology of the Year Award in the BusinessGreen Technology Awards 2015. The award recognises the most innovative and inspiring green building technologies that are working to cut environmental impacts and improve building performance.

LiGO is installed in some of the country’s most prestigious and challenging buildings. The system consistently achieves up to 40% energy savings for our customers, but is much more than just an automated system for turning lights on and off. LiGO is able to control lighting according to a wide range of parameters including available daylight, varying building use, presence detection and time control, through a solution that is simple and cost-efficient.
