Silvair, a pioneer in mesh lighting networks and a leading provider of qualified Bluetooth mesh solutions for lighting control, announced a technology partnership with OSRAM. As part of the cooperation, Silvair will provide a robust wireless control technology for HubSense®, a new lighting control system from OSRAM.
HubSense® is designed to enable easy and time-efficient retrofitting of existing lighting installations into flexible wireless control systems based on the globally interoperable Bluetooth mesh standard. With a drastically simplified commissioning process and multiple predefined lighting scenarios, it is an intuitive solution for implementing advanced control strategies without lighting control engineering expertise. The system also allows quick and effortless modification of settings and lighting arrangement without bearing the costs of recommissioning.
With Silvair as its Technology Partner, OSRAM gains access to the company’s wireless know-how and Bluetooth mesh expertise. As a major contributor to the Bluetooth SIG’s Mesh Working Group, Silvair plays a key role in the development of the Bluetooth mesh standard. The company aims to deliver wireless control solutions that surpass wired installations in terms of not only flexibility and cost-efficiency, but also reliability and scalability.
“This is a strong signal for the entire industry, which confirms the enormous potential of Bluetooth mesh networking in professional lighting applications. We’re delighted that our efforts aimed at delivering a truly outstanding lighting control experience have been recognised by one of the most established brands in the lighting business,” says Michał Hobot, VP of Product at Silvair.
“Bluetooth mesh introduces multiple innovative concepts to solve the typical challenges of wireless lighting control. Already present in all personal computing devices, it also seems perfectly positioned to deliver value-added services directly to end users. With its commitment to quality and innovation, Silvair is a perfect partner for exploring this exciting global ecosystem,” comments Hannes Wagner, Product Manager at OSRAM.
Wireless lighting control solutions from Silvair enable building owners, facility managers, and ESCOs to transform the existing building stock with minimum disruption, fast ROI, and IoT opportunities ahead. Together with its partners, the company is breaking down the barriers to energy-efficient control strategies, and driving the shift towards sustainable, high-performance buildings.
On Day 1 of LuxLive 2019 (London, November 13), representatives of both companies will present at the Smart Spaces stage to provide more details about the Bluetooth mesh standard, the HubSense® system, and the technology partnership between OSRAM and Silvair. Simon Slupik, CTO of Silvair, will deliver his speech at noon,“Why Bluetooth mesh is the silver bullet of wireless lighting control”. Hannes Wagner, Senior Product Portfolio Manager at OSRAM, will take the stage at 14:00, “Qualified Bluetooth mesh: a rational choice”.
Silvair provides a complete wireless lighting control solution based on the globally interoperable Bluetooth mesh standard. Component manufacturers can easily integrate it into a variety of products, flexibly choosing specific features in accordance with their customers’ needs. In addition, Silvair provides dedicated tools for commissioning and managing Bluetooth mesh lighting networks in commercial spaces. This is another great example of the many recent collaborations between technology partners.
