Stack Wins LIGHTFAIR International 2016 Innovation Award
Company’s Downlight BR30 Bulb Takes Home Top Honors in Conventional, Retrofit and Replacement LED Lamps Category
SAN DIEGO, CA—April 26, 2016 - The Stack Downlight, Stack’s first responsive lighting product, was named the category winner for the “Conventional, Retrofit and Replacement LED Lamps” category in the annual LIGHTFAIR International (LFI) 2016 Innovation Awards. The Stack Downlight BR30 format was selected as the winner amongst hundreds of potential lighting products by an independent panel of renowned lighting professionals.
The Stack Downlight began shipping in December 2016. Customers can purchase a Starter Kit, which includes two Downlights and a hub, for $99. Additional light bulbs are available for $45 each, making Stack’s feature-rich bulbs an ideal lighting solution for anyone looking for a smarter way to light their home or building. Stack’s proprietary responsive lighting sensor technology is also available to lighting partners through their Stack Enabled partner program.
“Stack bulbs are widely recognized for enabling a powerful lighting experience that is hard for other lighting products to match,” said Neil Joseph, Founder & CEO of Stack. “Our unique approach to embedding sensors directly into a light bulb has helped our current products stand out from the crowd, and make their mark on the industry. We are excited to be honored with this year’s award, and will continue to bring new innovations to market including our breakthrough radio frequency sensor technology.”
In addition to the award winning Downlight, Stack is now accepting pre-orders for their latest lighting format, the Classic A19. The Stack Classic A19 format, which is the most common format in residential households, will feature the same embedded ambient light and occupancy sensors as the BR30 as well as a new, state-of-the-art radio frequency (RF) motion sensing technology. The RF technology allows the bulbs to detect motion from within sconces and other traditional lighting fixtures as well as through lampshades.
The LFI Innovation Awards honors industry innovations for lighting-related products and designs introduced in the past 12 months. They are presented annually as part of the LIGHTFAIR International Conference. The awards program reviews hundreds of products debuting on the 2016 LFI trade show floor.
