Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Bluetooth Low Energy?

Bluetooth Low Energy:

It's a state-of-the-art wireless technology and the only low power wireless technology in all modern smartphones, tablets and even smart watches. Making it the most popular and mainstream future proof low power radio technology. This technology can be integrated into fixtures, LED-drivers and even the LED-module.

What does Bluetooth Wireless Mesh aim to fix?

Bluetooth Wireless Mesh:

Bluetooth Wireless Mesh technologies aim to specifically address the challenging requirements of wireless lighting control. It is the first low-power communication technology that solves all three pain points in today's wired lighting systems: reliability, scalability and simplicity. Furthermore, it democratizes lighting control, creating a universal lighting control ecosystem.

What is a PIR presence detector?

PIR presence detector:

A PIR presence detector works by detecting the movement of body heat. The 'switching' occurs due to an infrared signature being registered as differing from one point to another.

What is a motion detector?

Motion detector:

A motion detector is a device that detects moving objects, particularly people. Such a device is often integrated as a component of a system that automatically performs a task or alerts a user of motion in an area. They form a vital component of security, automated lighting control, home control, energy efficiency, and other useful systems. Motion detectors are also known as 'presence detectors'.

What is an occupany sensor?

Occupany sensor:

An occupancy sensor is an indoor motion detecting devices used to detect the presence of a person to automatically control lights or temperature or ventilation systems. The sensors use infrared, ultrasonic, microwave, or other technology. The term encompasses devices as different as PIR sensors, hotel room keycard locks and smart meters. Occupancy sensors are typically used to save energy, provide automatic control, and comply with building codes. Occupancy sensors are also known as 'presence detectors'.

What is daylight harvesting?

Daylight harvesting:

With daylight harvesting, lights are dimmed up or down in respond to ambient levels of daylight to maintain a set light level as specified by the designer to meet the relevant standards required. Daylight harvesting is also known as 'Maintained illuminance' and 'Daylight monitoring'.

What is a PIR sensor?

PIR sensor:

A passive infrared sensor (PIR sensor) is an electronic sensor that measures infrared (IR) light radiating from objects in its field of view. They are most often used in PIR-based motion or presence detectors.

What is a LUX level sensing detector?

LUX level sensing:

LUX level sensing detectors only turn lights on when natural light falls below a pre-set level.
