Enlighted, a company bringing the Internet of Things (IoT) to the workplace with its smart sensor network and lighting control, has secured $20 million in a Series D funding round, which included participation from current investors Draper Nexus Ventures, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, RockPort Capital Partners, Draper Fisher Jurvetson and Intel Capital. The company's lighting sensor product saves energy in commercial environments, increasing occupants' comfort by adapting to individual and ambient lighting conditions. The system securely and anonymously collects data onto the Enlighted platform to report on occupancy, environment and activity within a space.
Currently deployed in 45 million square feet of office space across customers like LinkedIn, Google and AT&T, Enlighted will soon add HVAC, security and other applications to its current lighting sensor functionality. CyberLightning, a similar IoT company based in Finland, just raised $4.2 million in funding from Inventure and TEKES a week or so ago.
