Casambi updates lighting control app for buildings of any size

December 05, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Casambi’s latest version of its smart lighting control app delivers a complete commissioning and management toolkit for buildings of any size.

Available on both Apple and Android platforms, the new release supports daylight management 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. Enabling Bluetooth mesh network-based lighting control without needing a wired gateway or Wi-Fi network connection, the Casambi platform already offers support for presence sensors to automatically control smart luminaires and light bulbs individually or in groups when a space is occupied.    
By selecting and enabling ‘Site’, users control lighting across many networks and can adjust scenes, timers, user accounts and user privileges. For example, the scenes in ‘Site’ can include luminaires from any of the networks that have been added to it.
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.
