Reach Media Networks:

One of the biggest assets that sets REACH apart from the competition is our scheduling software and integration capabilities. Whether you are looking to pull in existing data from your current scheduling software such as Google Calendar, Outlook, EMS, or looking to start from scratch on our CMS scheduling tool? Room schedule displays have become a popular method for facilities to control organization for internal appointments, meetings, classes, events, and more.

Expanding beyond traditional digital signage, we have put together the top 5 benefits of using our digital meeting room scheduler:

  1. Increased Efficiency: When effective schedule integrations/software is implemented, it makes an entire facility run more smoothly and efficiently. Our schedule display software allows your audience to quickly find available rooms, utilize automatic workflow, and find more information on events/classes going on during a specific day, week, etc.
  2. Increased Productivity: Reduce “no shows,” double-booking, and overall wasted time. Avoid duplicate work by integrating with your current scheduling software. Allow your audience to access all meeting, class, and event information in one place and see immediate changes in real time.
  3. Customization: Our room schedule displays allow you to customize your brand and content displayed. Not only will you be able to display your schedules, but you can also display your screen announcements within your room schedule displays. Why not use it as a marketing tool as well?
  4. Accessibility: Allow your users to view different schedules, meeting information, and time instantly on each room schedule display tablet.
  5. Support: Easily reserve room space, equipment, etc. through the software. Relieve the stress of a resource not being available at the time of the meeting or event.

Enlighted Intelligent Lighting Control System

Advanced sensing technology matches light levels to the activity and comfort needs of occupants.


Enlighted lighting control

Enlighted Intelligent Lighting Control provides lighting that saves energy and is responsive to occupant preferences. Most commercial buildings waste a large percentage of the energy used to light them. This happens when lights are full-on when no one is present or when daylighting is sufficient. It’s also wasteful to over light space when dimmer conditions are more practical and comfortable. No one likes to strain to read from a backlit screen in a room that is too bright or to sit long hours under the light that feels intense. Enlighted corrects all these issues for all types of current lighting technologies—LED, fluorescent, or any 0-10 dimmable light fixtures.



Each Enlighted Smart Sensor is a full-fledged computing and communications device with motion, daylight, and temperature sensing capabilities. They enable one of the most reliable, easy-to-deploy, and secure lighting systems today because they control locally at the fixture. Enlighted control is not a remote control. Light levels are managed by the sensors over a wired connection between the attached control unit and the ballast or LED driver of the host fixture. Installation is relatively fast, simple and non-disruptive — ideal for retrofit as well as new construction. When equipped with an Enlighted Smart Sensor, each fixture works autonomously to provide the workspace beneath it with personalized service. Light-level schedules, preferences and behavior settings can be defined for each individual fixture and saved in the Smart Sensor’s local memory as a software profile.


The Enlighted Energy Manager appliance provides a web-based user interface to the sensor network, enabling easy configuration and management of lighting behavior, as well as easy monitoring and reporting of energy, environmental and occupancy data and verification of savings. All this information can be accessed locally or remotely via any Internet- enabled PC, tablet or other mobile device. Each appliance can manage up to 1500 Enlighted Smart Sensors.


The Enlighted Gateway relays energy, environmental and occupancy data from Enlighted Smart Sensors to the Energy Manager. It also relays configuration changes from the Energy Manager to Enlighted Smart Sensors. Adhering to the industry-standard 802.15.4 wireless protocol and programmed to select low-traffic channels, the Enlighted wireless network reliably coexists with Wi-Fi networks. Because Enlighted Smart Sensors are network-independent for all control communications, the system generates minimal wireless chat, reducing channel competition and collisions. Any traffic on the Enlighted network is AES-128 encrypted to prevent intrusion and tampering.
