Bringing interoperability to light – Silvair joins forces with manufacturers to enter the lighting ecosystem driven by Bluetooth mesh networking standard

Silvair, a pioneer in lighting control technology using Bluetooth mesh networking standard, announces partnerships with Fulham, McWong International, Murata, Danlers, ERP Power and DG Light to bring to the market a wide range of components and products designed for setting up smart lighting infrastructures in commercial spaces.

Silvair’s wireless control technology allows a variety of drivers, fixture controllers, sensors, switches, LED engines to become part of a global smart lighting ecosystem driven by the Bluetooth mesh networking standard. Bluetooth advancements such as unmatched scalability, wired-like reliability and high-level security make a solid foundation for smart lighting solutions. The appearance of products empowered by Bluetooth mesh indicates that the market is now ready for open wireless lighting control solutions. It also shows how fast the market is adopting the Bluetooth mesh standard. All of the above-mentioned products will be compatible with energy harvesting wireless switches made for quick and intuitive control of connected lighting systems due to Silvair’s collaboration with EnOcean.

Along with Bluetooth mesh compatible products, Silvair will launch its commissioning platform – a specifically designed tool ensuring a smooth and secure setup of smart lighting infrastructures. Thanks to its prominent performance, the commissioning process both in small-scale locations as well as large commercial spaces is time and cost-efficient at every step from the planning stage to the system implementation. Besides the web portal, the platform includes a mobile application enabling users to always be in full control of lighting conditions.

“I am truly excited for all the changes in the industry that are about to happen because of smart lighting solutions based on Bluetooth mesh technology. As Silvair, we are happy to be supported by some of the world’s most renowned companies in the business,” says Rafal Han, CEO of Silvair. “We are looking forward to presenting a vast number of high-quality products using our lighting control firmware as well as introducing our commissioning platform. This is undoubtedly the next big step on the way to creating a fully interoperable global ecosystem.”

“SylSmart solutions, and our Smart Lighting Innovation Centre (SLIC) are founded on open, interoperable standards that we believe are needed for IoT to thrive. We are very excited by the release of the Bluetooth mesh standard, and in particular Silvair’s lighting control stack. We look forward to demonstrating one of the world’s first Bluetooth mesh certified lighting controls systems at Light+Building 2018, and in particular how lighting can co-operate openly with other room elements such as HVAC. We will continue our collaboration, fostering and pushing the adoption of this much-needed standard with Silvair as the industry pioneers.” says Edward Lees, Global Senior Product Line Manager – Smart Lighting and Controls,  Feilo Sylvania

“Addressing the needs of modern lighting control systems was a key requirement in the development of the Bluetooth mesh networking standard,” said Ken Kolderup, vice president of Marketing at Bluetooth SIG. “We are delighted to see the rapid adoption of Bluetooth in the lighting industry, which will help accelerate the deployment of interoperable connected lighting systems that will serve as a platform for a variety of IoT services in the future.

More information about the upcoming components and their functionalities can be obtained during the Light+Building trade fair on March 18-23, 2018 at the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre. Silvair will be presenting the interoperability of the above-mentioned products at booth no. E80, hall 9.1 together with the commissioning platform and its corresponding smartphone app.
