SACRAMENTO, Calif. September 14, 2018—McWong, a leading lighting and controls solutions provider, has received Bluetooth qualification on 14 devices in its Smart Sensor Control Platform, which was also recently accepted into the 2018 IES Progress Report. This milestone means the devices comply with the Bluetooth mesh networking specifications published in 2017.
The Smart Sensor Control Platform encompasses a range of occupancy and motion sensors, in-wall occupancy and dimming controllers, dimming power packs, fixture controllers, and mobile apps (Android and iOS) for remote configuration of sensor and dimming settings. It combines sensor-based detection with Bluetooth-ready control capabilities for a cost-effective and future-proof approach to indoor/outdoor lighting and beyond.
