LumaStream Nominated for 1st Annual That Business Show Awards

March 9, 2016

Congratulations, LumaStream! LumaStream was recently nominated as a finalist for That Business Show with Jamie Meloni’s 1st Annual That Business Show Awards Dinner. LumaStream is one of five nominees being honored by Jamie Meloni and his guests at the upcoming dinner. The awards dinner will be hosted on January 25, 2016 at the Centre Club from 6pm-10pm. Tickets can be purchased here!

LumaStream is a shining light in the Tampa Bay technology community. Starting from a small garage-based company in 2010 with the desire to revolutionize the lighting industry by designing a more efficient and longer lasting solution for LEDs, LumaStream has become a leader in innovations in the lighting community (and the growing market of the Internet of Things).

LumaStream’s lighting solution is more energy efficient, simpler to install, and more easily controlled than any other LED lighting system currently on the market. Simply put, LumaStream LEDs are more effective and more efficient. LumaStream’s patented system uses thin gauge, Class 2 wire to carry low-voltage power to LED fixtures. The same wire also fully controls and dims the LEDs, eliminating the need for secondary control wiring. The remote drivers centrally convert AC power to low-voltage DC power using proprietary digital algorithms that achieve clean power that runs up to 200 ft. away for up to 24 LED fixtures. This patented method delivers unprecedented results for energy savings, long-distance low-voltage power distribution, and smooth, continuous dimming control. This technology has been recognized by industry leaders throughout the nation as one of the greatest achievements in solid state lighting in 2015. Along with Phillips and Acuity Lighting, two of the largest LED manufacturers in the nation, LumaStream placed as a finalist in LED Magazine’s Sapphire Awards.

LumaStream’s intelligent, low-voltage LED lighting can be found in several local prominent hotspots founded by Tampa icons. At Ulele, a Tampa restaurant founded by renowned restaurateur Richard Gonzmart, LumaStream designed a turnkey lighting solution that is energy efficient while preserving the building’s historic status. PDQ owner Bob Basham, well-known in the area as an Outback Steakhouse co-founder, hired LumaStream to create a lighting environment that offered a comfortable and welcoming dining atmosphere, implemented from store-to-store. The LumaStream team has also had the pleasure to work with powerhouse restaurateurs in the Bay area such as Carmel Kitchen’s Chris Sullivan, an Outback Steakhouse co-founder, and Blake Casper, Florida’s largest McDonald’s franchisee.

CEO Eric Higg’s determination to lead the LED lighting industry has driven the company’s incredible growth. Higgs was featured twice in the Tampa Bay Business Journal in 2015, in the months of July and August. In November 2015, LumaStream eagerly announced its groundbreaking partnership with Dobbs Stanford, representing the first widespread rollout of low voltage LED lighting systems sold through audio-visual integrators. LumaStream continues its innovative partnership with St. Pete College in order to prepare local students for high demand manufacturing jobs. In the new year, LumaStream plans to increase its market range to focus on residential lighting solutions. LumaStream has enjoyed immense success in the past year and intends to carry that momentum into 2016.
