Client


The Equinox roof, an Omnimax brand, is an innovative high-tech residential and commercial solar powered outdoor patio system. The louvered roof system, powered by the Somfy interface, enables users to take control of their outdoor patio living environments. With the simple touch of a button, you can open, close, and/or tilt the louvers to maximize the comfort and quality of your outdoor living experience.


Purpose


To maximize the night time outdoor living experience of Equinox end-users.


Project

Driven by the idea of adding smart lighting to further enhance the Equinox experience into the darker hours of the night, the Equinox team began experimenting with commercial outdoor lighting products. After several failed attempts, the Equinox team noticed that commercial lighting fixtures lacked the necessary technology to be compatible with the Somfy interface (wireless On-Off and dimming functionality). Morevower, the lighting fixtures models used on the initial attempts lacked proper functionality and versatility.


Our Challenge


To create custom-made (design, engineer, and manufacture) unique lighting fixtures compatible with Equinox louvered roofs and Somfy interface. In addition, the lighting fixtures had to be user-friendly and easy-to-install.
