Iluminar’s lighting solutions are known for their high-efficiency LEDs, low power consumption, Power over Ethernet input capability, and angle flexibility. By deploying Iluminar’s products, security professionals experience unblemished video feeds (free from insects and hotspots), enhanced images, and longer distances, up to 919 feet (280 meters). Reynolds’ extensive experience at various integrator, video and lighting companies prove she is a true industry veteran. She began her security career as an account executive for U.K. integrator Chubb Fire & Security in the mid 1990s. She went on to work for Pinkerton Security, Rainbow CCTV (a prominent lens manufacturer where Reynolds first attained education in lighting), and Sony. From 2005-2008, Reynolds was the U.S. partner for a U.K. based CCTV lighting company. Reynolds is married with two stepdaughters.
