May 5, 2020

ATLANTA -- May 5, 2020 -- Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI) today announced that the Allure UNIWAVE™ series of wireless interfaces and remote controls from Distech Controls™ has been recognized by BUILDINGS as a product award winner in the Building & Energy Management category as part of the magazine’s annual Money-Saving Product award program. Distech Controls Inc. is an innovation leader connecting people with intelligent building solutions.

Selected for its innovative and budget-friendly room control, the Allure UNIWAVE series is a member of an elite group of 45 products currently featured online at and will be showcased in the magazine’s May/June 2020 issue.  Finalists were evaluated by the BUILDINGS media editorial staff for the money-saving benefits they offer to building owners and facility managers in areas such as energy efficiency, water savings and maintenance.

“We are honored by the recognition of the Allure UNIWAVE, a series that allows building occupants to manage comfort settings in a room or open space while providing lower installation costs and easier retrofit repairs for building owners,” said Charles Pelletier, Vice President of Product Management.

The Allure UNIWAVE device works as part of the ECLYPSE™ Sky Ecosystem (recognized last year by BUILDINGS) by communicating through Bluetooth low energy wireless technology to EC-Multi-Sensor-BLE devices, which offer capabilities for temperature, luminosity and motion detection. The UNIWAVE allows for the ongoing evolution of built spaces without costs typical of wired room controller devices. The wall mounted UNIWAVE can be installed on a variety of surfaces (glass, concrete or brick).
