Silvair to provide wireless technology for OSRAM’s new lighting control system

Mesh lighting networks pioneer Silvair is to provide a robust wireless control technology for Osram’s new lighting control system HubSense.

HubSense is designed to enable easy and time-efficient retrofitting of existing lighting installations into flexible wireless control systems based on the globally interoperable Bluetooth mesh standard. With a radically simplified commissioning process and multiple predefined lighting scenarios, it represents an intuitive solution for implementing advanced control strategies without lighting control engineering expertise.

The system also allows quick and effortless modification of settings and lighting arrangement without bearing the costs of recommissioning.

“Bluetooth mesh introduces multiple innovative concepts to solve the typical challenges of wireless lighting control,” commented Hannes Wagner, Product Manager at OSRAM. “Already present in all personal computing devices, it also seems perfectly positioned to deliver value-added services directly to end users.”

With Silvair as its Technology Partner, Osram gains access to the company’s wireless know-how and unmatched Bluetooth mesh expertise. “This is a strong signal for the entire industry which confirms the enormous potential of Bluetooth mesh networking in professional lighting applications” said Michał Hobot, VP of Product at Silvair.

“We’re delighted that our efforts aimed at delivering a truly outstanding lighting control experience have been recognized by one of the most established brands in the lighting business.”

As a major contributor to the Bluetooth SIG’s Mesh Working Group, Silvair plays a key role in the development of the Bluetooth mesh standard. The company aims to deliver wireless control solutions that surpass wired installations in terms of not only flexibility and cost-efficiency, but also reliability and scalability.

Wireless lighting control solutions from Silvair enable building owners, facility managers, and ESCOs to transform the existing building stock with minimum disruption, fast ROI, and IoT opportunities ahead. Together with its partners, the company is breaking down the barriers to energy-efficient control strategies, and driving the shift towards sustainable, high-performance buildings.
