The Philips Dynalite system is a flexible and scalable control solution providing the necessary monitoring and testing of emergency lighting installations – plus status feedback via the network.
Pierlite, a leading provider of lighting and technology solutions in Australia and New Zealand, has acquired the SenseAgent smart building technology portfolio from Levaux for an undisclosed sum. The transaction bolsters Signify’s Interact smart IoT ecosystem offering by integrating the SenseAgent technology.

For me, mentoring comes naturally. As a leader, I believe it’s my responsibility to help and empower my team to achieve their highest potential. Mentorship comes in many forms. It can often simply be open and honest conversations. It doesn’t have to always be structured or formal. In fact, I would contend the best form of mentorship is the type that’s built on a foundation of vulnerability and mutual understanding.
An organisation’s workplace structure shapes the way people interact and collaborate. Right from the beginning, I’ve always wanted my team to effectively communicate with each other. That’s why I’m a strong advocate for horizontal workplace hierarchies. It’s the way I choose to lead my amazing team at Pierlite. My way of leading involves connecting with everyone I work with, regardless of their job titles or areas of expertise. I like to take an empathetic view in understanding what it’s like from their position.
