Mandalay Bay implements wireless control network
MGM Resorts International has implemented a wireless control network at its Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas in order to digitize more than 1,600 light fixtures covering approximately 1 million square feet of floor space across six exhibit halls.
The system features the Daintree wireless control network from Current, powered by GE. In a statement, Chris Magee, vice president of sustainable facilities at MGM Resorts, said, "Current’s Daintree controls are supporting our energy savings goals while improving the customer and climate experience." He added, "Strong partners with significant commitment to the environment are what makes these types of projects a success."
The digital network is designed to reduce the amount of supplemental lighting required for major trade shows while gaining exhibitor-specific control capabilities in Mandalay Bay’s convention center, the second-largest in Las Vegas. The network was showcased earlier this year at the UBM Fashion’s MAGIC Trade Show, where, according to the statement, organizers reported that the need for supplemental lighting was nearly eliminated compared to prior years. Among the network’s features is the ability to modify light levels from 0-100 percent, along with real-time management capability above each booth. MGM Resorts is also exploring adding additional functionality that would integrate the lighting system data with its corporate building analytics platform.
