IEE Names Lighting Science® to Top Ten LED Lamp List

DEFINITY™ Ranks Amongst the Best PAR 30 Reflector Lamps on the Market Today

SATELLITE BEACH, FL -- January 15, 2013 -- Lighting Science Group Corporation® (OTCQB: LSCG), one of the world's leading LED lighting technology companies, announced today that its DEFINITY™ PAR30 LED lamp has been recognized by the IEE, an Institute of the Edison Foundation, as one of the TOP TEN best LED lamps. Using an innovative approach that factors in energy efficiency, light quality, cost, and consumer appeal, three energy efficiency leaders -- IEE, TopTen USA, and Ecova -- teamed up to provide consumers with a list of the Top Ten PAR 30 LED reflector light bulbs on the market today.

The study focused on LED PAR30 and PAR38 (parabolic aluminized reflector) lamps because of their significant potential for energy savings with consumers. With approximately 150 million incandescent or halogen lamps in use in U.S. households, the potential energy savings in switching to long-lasting LED reflector lamps is vast.

DEFINITY™ products from Lighting Science® are leading-edge LED replacement lamps that deliver performance and affordability to consumers. The advanced lamp line is a result of an LED system design that encompasses efficient energy saving power supplies, unique thermal solutions to foster exceptionally long lamp life and a top-tier optical system that results in spectacular light quality.

"Our goal was to make it easy for consumers to find the best LED reflector lamps," said IEE Executive Director Lisa Wood, "and by best, we mean the most efficient, cost-effective, as well as consumer-friendly available."

LED reflector lamps are typically 360 percent more energy efficient than halogen reflector lamps. LED reflector lamps also offer a longer operating life -- typically in excess of 30,000 hours versus 2,000 hours for a halogen lamp. And the light that LEDs cast can be just as warm, focused, and dimmable. But with hundreds of LED products to choose from, finding the best products is a challenge. Now, consumers have a guide to the top performing LED lamps.

"We believe that our LED lamps are a significant advancement in the science of light and key to a more efficient, sustainable and brighter future," said Keith Scott, CCO of Lighting Science. "Consumers want solutions that make their homes feel comfortable and look even better. Our lamps enable our customers to achieve the best lighting results available today."

Testing protocol and results are available in the full report, Evaluation of Best-in-Class LED Reflector Lamps- January 2013, at: http://www.edisonfoundation.net/iee/Documents/IEE_Evaluation%20of%20Best-in-Class%20LED_Final.pdf

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...

Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment?
