SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 20, 2019—McWong International, a leading innovator in Bluetooth® mesh technology, is proud to announce its inclusion in the Edison Report’s annual Top Ten “MUST See” Awards, awarded today. The Awards focus on products being introduced at LIGHTFAIR® International, such as the McWong Smart Outdoor Lighting Control platform that earned this recognition.
This offering extends the company’s award-winning Bluetooth mesh control solutions to both indoor and outdoor lighting applications, and with Bluetooth connectivity, creates a single platform for simultaneous and coordinated control of indoor and outdoor lighting, without requiring complicated interfaces with building automation systems or other legacy communication protocols. The new Bluetooth-enabled Smart Outdoor Lighting Control platform offers robust control capabilities through a range of devices, including microwave and passive infrared motion sensors; fixture controllers with single- and dual-channel control capabilities for light level and color tuning, and a photocell for daylight-responsive control. The platform features optional Bluetooth 4.xx or 5 compatibility for robust networking and communication capabilities combined with Bluetooth qualification for all devices for enhanced interoperability. In addition, the devices are compatible with an industry standard low voltage standard socket, for simplified future upgrades in the field, faster installation and broader customer choice. This is particularly important for outdoor lighting systems, where the lifecycle of installed fixtures may approach 20 years. The emphasis on interoperability ensures that the platform will be compatible with future fixture selections or expansions of the control system itself.
The company is showcasing this product, along with its complete Bluetooth mesh solutions, at Booth #5310 throughout LIGHTFAIR® International, May 21-23, 2019 in Philadelphia, PA.
