Sensity Systems

World’s First Light Sensory Network

Since its inception, Sensity Systems’ vision has been shaped by a team that consists of experienced engineers from the optical arena, lighting, networking and telecom sectors, including Chairman and CEO Hugh Martin, a Silicon Valley veteran and visionary; Rusty Cumpston, co-founder and chief operating officer; and Rao Arimilli, co-founder and chief strategy officer.

Sensity Systems uses energy-efficient LED lighting as the foundation for a high-speed, sensor-based Light Sensory Network (LSN). The company enables light owners to capitalize on the LED conversion process by embedding networking technology within both retrofit and new LED luminaires. With Sensity’s open, multiservice NetSense platform, lighting owners are able to reduce energy costs and implement a variety of SensApps applications and services over the network, including public safety, environmental and weather monitoring, parking management and retail analytics.
