IoT Infrastructure

The scalable wireless mesh network using our IoT infrastructure can manage over 18,000 sensors per building.  Sensor data is collected and transferred via a gateway either to an Enlighted Manage in the Cloud (EMC) or an on-premise version. All data is transferred to Manage in the cloud for processing and reporting.

The key physical components are depicted below:





The following is a simplified diagram showing the placement of Enlighted devices such as sensors, control units, gateways, ERC switches, and Manage on-prem servers in a multi-floor building.

Spec Sheet

View or download the Gateway, Spec Sheet: English rev.17 | German rev.16

Install Guide

Refer to the Gateway Installation Guide for installing the Gateway.

The Gateway product, GW-2-01 is not to be mounted outdoors. The Gateway device must be installed indoors. Please note the Gateway is rated for 0 - 50°C. A watertight enclosure does little to ensure the Gateway operates within the stated temperature requirement.

For outdoor installations the Gateway must be mounted indoors and remote the antenna. Suppose an application is required for outdoor sensors, in that case, the Gateway should be mounted on an interior wall and via cable connected to any outdoor omni-directional antenna with a gain of up to 11dBi or less can be used.

For more information, refer to the Gateway Outdoor Antenna Selection Guidelines. Note that Enlighted does not supply the remote antenna components and that the Installation contractor needs to specify, supply and install these items as part of their Scope of Work.


Gateway Firmware 

Only Enlighted registered partners and customers have access to download and upgrade firmware images on a Gateway. Refer to the list of available Gateway Firmware Images.

Connected Lighting and IoT Sensor Tiers


The Enlighted sensors may be purchased with different levels of functionality. Select the best solution to meet your needs while ensuring a powerful IoT upgrade path in the future. 

We offer a two-tier option of sensors.

1. Connected Lighting (CL)  

The Enlighted Connected Lighting (CL) tier provides networked lighting functionality with enterprise-wide scheduling and reporting as well as supports BMS integration via BACnet.  Automated demand response settings adjust energy use at times of peak demand, and the system provides detailed energy savings data by time of day, and location. This includes lighting energy use and performance, BACnet access, and Energy and environmental APIs. 

2. IoT Lighting

The Enlighted IoT license tier enables users to realize the full value of data services and IoT functionality via Enlighted's applications and advanced occupancy data and Location Intelligence services and APIs.

Upgrade Sensor Hardware from CL to IoT (SU-CL-IoT)

If not enabled at the time of purchase, the sensor capability can subsequently be enabled ‘over-the-air’ for an installed sensor by purchasing the SU-CL-IoT-UPG upgrade option.

It is possible to upgrade the system from Connected Lighting to IoT, but only one type (CL or IoT) of sensor can be active at any given time on Manage.

Manage Licenses

In addition, Enlighted Manage offers licenses for additional features, applications, to support an organization’s business requirements. Customers must purchase and install software licenses when using this advanced functionality to remain in compliance.

The following types of licenses are available for purchase from Enlighted. Refer to each type of license for further details.

Sensor License 

Sensor Licenses are required to enable BLE on Enlighted's sensors and enable communication between the Enlighted Manage and commissioned sensors for streaming data and advanced occupancy and location APIs. All Gen 5 or newer sensors commissioned to Manage must be enabled with the appropriate Connected Lighting to IoT License (EM-CL2IoT-SU).

BACnet License  

The BACnet license is applicable and available only for on-premises Manage servers. The BACnet interface provides seamless integration for communication between the Enlighted lighting network and Building Management Systems (BMS). BACnet enables lighting control and monitoring via the BMS.

API License

Enlighted provides two distinct API product families: Energy and Environment APIs and Occupancy APIs. The Energy and Environment APIs support energy reporting and lighting control use cases, and Occupancy APIs support various real-time space management, space utilization, and security use cases.

Recommended articles:

See Request License for purchasing additional licenses. Refer to the article License Management for an overview of how licenses are managed. 


Cables (CBL-xx-xx-xx)

Enlighted cables provide hard-wired connections between the Enlighted Gen 5 sensors and Control Units (CU-4) or Profile 0 drivers for reliable performance.

Gigabit Smart Managed PoE Switch (SW-POE-8-8-NAS-1)

The Gigabit Smart Managed Switch (DGS-1210-10MP), sourced from D-Link, can be used with the Enlighted Gateways, and it provides data switching power for the Enlighted IoT network.

Refer to the D-Link website for details; Product Code: SW-POE-8-8-NAS-1

Recommended articles:


  • What is different with the D-Link PoE switch than the previous switches?

    The D-Link PoE switch is larger than the previous switches and can support higher PoE wattage devices (PoE Budget of 130 Watts), such as People Counting sensors.
  • Is there any Registration or special programming required to use this switch?

    The D-Link switch is an Out-of-the-Box switch that does not require any Registration or manual setup.
  • The switch has two SFP ports available. Can those ports be used?

    Enlighted supports using the managed ports numbered 1 through 8 only.  Ports 9 & 10 (SFP Ports) should not be used, and the plugs in those ports should not be removed. Daisey Chaining multiple switches through the managed ports is allowed.  Daisey Chaining through the SFP ports is not supported by Enlighted.
  • What are the options for mounting this switch?

    The images show the Rack Mount and Wall Mount options using the mounting bracket that comes with the switch. Also, install rubber pads if the PoE switch is going to be placed on a Desk or flat surface.

Plug Load Controller (PC‐xx‐20)

The Enlighted Plug Load Controller (PLC) transforms receptacles in 20A circuits to controlled and metered smart receptacles for energy-efficient and code-compliant plug load control.

Spec Sheets

View or download the required Spec sheet:

Best Practices:

  • PLCs are installed near the outlet or load they control, and they must be wired properly to the outlet.
  • Place the PLC in the electrical closet or near an electrical panel for easy access and visibility.
  • Plug Load Controller should be installed within the gateway's wireless range and close to any sensor of the group they belong to.
  • PLCs need to hear from only one sensor and do not need to hear from all sensors in the group.
  • The controlling sensor should belong to the same motion group to which the Gateway is assigned. Make sure the sensor is placed near the closet.
  • For floor outlets, the PLC must not be buried in the floor.
