Cerise Suite of Lighting Design Software


Horticultural Lighting Design

Lighting costs form a significant portion of capital and operational costs of greenhouses and vertical gardens. Cerise365™+GreenHouseDesigner™ can plan effective and efficient horticultural lighting.

The lighting design calculation engine in Cerise365+GreenHouseDesigner™ is a proven tool. Developed by Ian Ashdown, Cerise365™ is the significantly enhanced successor to the calculation engine used in Agi32 and ElumTools.

A Powerful Estimation Tool

Works On Any Device

Cerise365+GreenHouseDesigner™ software allows horticultural luminaire and greenhouse manufacturers to provide their clients with quick estimates of the luminaires needed to achieve the client’s specified light levels from any desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone with internet access.

Lighting-Fast Results

Cerise365+GreenHouseDesigner™ will take only a few minutes to model a greenhouse or vertical farm, whereas it might take an in-house applications engineer an hour or more to do the same using other available software. This saves time and money for the manufacturer, and ultimately the client.



over other available software:

Explicitly designed for horticultural lighting.

In the first release, the layout of tables or trays and luminaires will be done automatically, saving the designer from specifying their positions.

Models individual trays in vertical farms.

When the trays are stacked with lighting above each tray, the lighting of the trays rather than the entire room is of primary importance.

Integrates natural and artificial light sources.

Integrating climate-based annual daylighting with supplemental electric lighting lets designers optimally combine both light sources in their greenhouse designs.


Photometric File Viewer & Conversion Software

CeriseDocs™ provides a solution for photon-based metrics and spectral quantum distribution information for horticultural, and radiometric data for UVGI.

CeriseDocs™ combines the features of popular photometric file viewing programs with those needed for ANSI/IES TM-33-18. It also enables users to convert legacy ANSI/IES LM-63 and EULUMDAT files into TM-33-18 documents without any loss of information.
