Control Network Solutions launches new transformational company branding

Control Network Solutions (CNS), the creator of smart web-based building and lighting controls, has unveiled its new website and company branding to reflect its transformation to a business that is leveraging the global demand for real-time analytics integrated with the Internet of Things (IoT).
Control Network Solutions came into existence as a reseller of networking and communications products for the building and industrial controls sectors. The company has since evolved into a global specialist, developing market disruptive control solutions for buildings and lighting.
Developers of the world’s first web DALI intelligent lighting control solution, elitedali™ and wireless energy harvesting device, cns-enocean™, CNS provides both client specific and off the shelf web based solutions for smart building and lighting controls.
Celebrating its transformational story, CNS has launched its new responsive – and easy to navigate – website, essential for the increasing focus and use of mobile devices.
“The building and lighting controls industry is a rapidly evolving sector and with the recent boom in construction, it was time to introduce a fresh design which represents the high quality international solutions CNS produces,” explains Mike Welch Managing Director of CNS.
“The IoT, converged applications, analytics and smart control are increasingly becoming a part of everyday life and as we move toward more sustainable building practices, the need for smart lighting control, management and live data, which CNS’s solutions provides access to, will become a vital aspect of building management.”
Providing vendor independent lighting control solutions, CNS’s products offer end clients total flexibility and choice when considering data access, control operation, maintenance and installation.
A sustainability aware company, all CNS products incorporate the minimum number of components to ensure reduced parasitic power consumption and maintenance, as well as less unrecyclable waste at the product’s end of life.
Mike concludes, “With convergent, mobile technology businesses in particular, a great deal of attention is predominantly given to London-based start-ups but there are established businesses like CNS, that are embracing the technology age and the opportunities it provides, turning themselves into ‘transformational’ businesses.”
