OVERVIEW
Mack Technologies had been researching more efficient lighting to meet aggressive operational cost reduction goals, but concerns about the initial cost of replacing several thousand fluorescent bulbs made the manufacturer cautious about conversion.

Mack Technologies also wanted to be a leader in corporate social responsibility. To do that, the company needed to significantly reduce its energy consumption and enhance employee working conditions while minimizing the cost of investment.
Mack Technologies, a leading provider of complex electronic manufacturing services, makes electronic circuit boards for the defense, telecom, and industrial sections in its facility in Westford, Massachusett
Mack Technologies believed that the key to achieving energy an operational efficiency was to leverage transformative technologies. Knowing that LED lighting, along with Daintree intelligent lighting controls represent a significant innovation in energy efficiency, Mack Technologies sought to retrofit its 108,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Westford, Massachusetts. To make this goal a reality, the firm brought in Bluestone Energy Services to develop and execute the comprehensive LED lighting and intelligent control project. Realizing the value of ControlScope, Mack raised the bar in LED conversion by integrating controls to dramatically improve efficiency and flexibility.

IOT SNAPSHOT
The IoT ONE Radar indicates the mix of hardware, software and services used in an IoT solution.
Hardware
Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Software
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
Services
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT hardware consultancies provide services such as solution specification, product design, connectivity setup, and partner identification.
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.
Examples of business consulting services include go-to-market design and execution, business model development, channel development, and corporate M&A.
