Dec 8, 2017: Casambi has launched its latest version of smart lighting control app that delivers a complete commissioning and management toolkit for buildings of any size.
Available on both Apple and Android platforms, the new app enables daylight management. The control solution allows dimming of artificial lighting when daylight is available for achieving maximum lighting quality and reduced energy consumption. This can be done via standalone sensors or sensors integrated into luminaires to allow dimming of artificial lighting when enough daylight is available, to improve light quality and deliver energy savings.
The new version of the app has also a feature calles ‘Site’. This means that a Casambi lighting control solution can now be used seamlessly for big building complexes. The ‘Site’-functionality enables control of several networks from the Casambi app.
With the help of Bluetooth mesh network-based lighting control without wired gateway or Wi-Fi network connection, the Casambi platform offers support for presence sensors to automatically control smart luminaires and light bulbs individually or in groups when a space is occupied.
Casambi also offers the possibility for partners to develop their own rotary switches based on the CBM-001 and CBM-002 Bluetooth modules. Besides the basic functionality of a rotary switch that can be pushed to turn luminaires on, or rotated for dimming and adjusting colour temperature, the switch can also be used to cycle through scenes or modes.
Several fixture modes have been added to enable warm dimming. Suitable for Casambi’s CBU-ASD, CBU-PWM4, CBM-001 and CBM-002 modules, the ‘WarmCool’ modes implement ‘warm dimming’ with a single dimmer and two outputs (warm/cool) that are mixed according to calibration graphs in order to gradually decrease the colour temperature as the dimming level is reduced.
