An Assessment of Cavet Technologies' LumiSmart

Tiny Toronto lighting vendor Cavet Technologies thinks it's got a game changer. The company has introduced a lighting controller it claims can lower the power consumption of a whole fluorescent light circuit by 35%+ with a single plug in box. If true, it could represent a new type of lighting controller, easier to install and less expensive. Which could spell trouble for existing lighting controller and LED fixture companies. 

But is the company's power wave-shaping science real? What do customers say? Read this report by Kachan & Co.

An Assessment of Cavet Technologies' LumiSmart
Examining the possible market impact of a new fluorescent lighting controller

A report by Kachan & Co., May 2010.

What companies does Cavet Technologies' LumiSmart ILC product compete against, and how does it really perform in real world conditions? What are the company's early customers saying? How does the LumiSmart ILC compare to incumbent lighting controllers in features and total installed costs? What are its strengths and weaknesses?

Cavet claims to have a completely unique new adaptive microprocessor-controlled approach that minimizes harmonics and maximizes control, a technology that isn't multi tap transformer or SCR-based. It's so different that Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has created a new category for the LumiSmart ILC controller.

But does it really work? Kachan & Co. interviewed industry luminaries, competitors and lead customers of Cavet’s. We asked hard questions. The answers may surprise you.
