ROAM users can now migrate to an advanced street lighting management system to manage their ROAM deployments thereby protecting their investment in ROAM hardware while getting ready to support their smart city initiatives

FREMONT, CA, Dec 08, 2022 – Dhyan Networks and Technologies, Inc., (Dhyan), the device management experts, today announced that it has entered into a technology transition agreement with a subsidiary of Acuity Brands, Inc. (Acuity) (NYSE: AYI), a market leader in lighting and building management solutions, whereby Dhyan, as a technology partner of Acuity, will integrate StreetMan®, Dhyan’s world class streetlight management system, with ROAM® outdoor lighting control hardware. ROAM Concierge™ users will have the option to migrate to StreetMan and continue to use ROAM lighting control hardware when the ROAM Concierge software service shuts down in January 2023.

“Dhyan is an expert in device monitoring and management, and we are pleased that Dhyan will be integrating their StreetMan management system with ROAM hardware,” said Sarah Golish, Senior Vice President, Digital Lighting Networks, Acuity Brands Lighting and Controls. “When we decided to discontinue ROAM Concierge service, we wanted to ensure our customers were able to continue managing their outdoor lighting infrastructure. Dhyan’s integration of their advanced StreetMan service allows customers to continue benefitting from their investment in ROAM hardware while allowing them to enjoy the modern lighting management experience of StreetMan.”

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Acuity,” said Ram Kumar, CEO of Dhyan. “Acuity is a leader in lighting and controls solutions and was a pioneer in smart streetlighting with their ROAM technology. StreetMan offers ROAM users an up-to-date management user interface, advanced control and reports, support for mobile phones and tablets, and the ability to manage other smart street assets such as cameras and EV chargers, providing a path for smart city initiatives. StreetMan is a technology-agnostic management system that is right for today and ready for tomorrow.”
