The Platformatics system is comprised of light fixtures, intelligent Power over Ethernet (PoE) nodes, sensors, wall switches, area controllers, Ethernet switches and cloud-based applications. The area controller acts as a security and provisioning gateway for the system. The architecture, including PoE light nodes, is modular to ensure that any LED light that supports the Platformatics power interface works on the system.

By using standards-based Ethernet switches that combine power and control into a single cable, Platformatics makes it easy for IT system integrators to converge lighting with existing IT devices-from access points to video surveillance cameras.
