At Unlumited we are always looking for innovation. What technological developments can we use to come up with beautiful new solutions. Nowadays, it’s no longer just about hardware innovation anymore. The biggest leap is being made on the software side. We understand that software is hard to make tangible. So that’s why we’ve tried to capture the magic of something as invisible as Bluetooth Mesh to make it more tangible. Here are 6 reasons why you should choose this new technology for upcoming lighting solutions.
- Bluetooth is a proven technology
Bluetooth isn’t going to disappear overnight somewhere in the next decade. It has more than earned its stripes in the past and is only becoming faster and more accurate. That’s why you don’t have to worry that a wireless lighting solution that works with Bluetooth will suddenly become obsolete.
- No single point of failure
Bluetooth lighting networks don’t have a single point of failure, as it is officially called. This means that the lighting system can still be operated, even if one or more fixtures have stopped responding for whatever reason.
- Bluetooth is very scalable
Scale is not a problem for a lighting network that works with bluetooth. Hundreds of drivers and other devices using the technology can coexist effortlessly, without signal interference.
- Bluetooth Mesh is good at communicating
Bluetooth Mesh uses a bi-directional communication link. Your control solution, whether it’s an app or a remote control, can pass on information to the Bluetooth fixtures, but this also works the other way around. New fixtures can be added tot he network in mere seconds, because they transmit a signal that can be picked up by your phone or tablet.
- Bluetooth moves with the times
Bluetooth technology doesn’t stand still.If new functionality becomes available in the future, it can be wirelessly installed on the existing lighting via a so-called OTA update. This stands for over the air, so no additional installation efforts are necessary.
- Mix and mesh
With Bluetooth Mesh it is very easy to create and program a completely new light scene. With a traditional wired lighting system, an installer would have to be called in to set it up. Thanks to Bluetooth, end users can set it up all on their own.
