XicatoSmart Controls – Sapphire Winner for Smart and Connected SSL Enabling Systems
Xicato’s Bluetooth Mesh lighting controlsare designed to provide a superior range of control and monitoring and to reduce the implementation and maintenance costs at any site. Tens of thousands of nodes can share a single, highly secure network, and across tens of thousands of networks.
Interoperable and Scalable
Buildings are IoT epicenters with a variety of protocols in use from Bluetooth to Zigbee. They are the foundation for everything from building management systems to open communications networks.Xicato‘s Controls are designed for interoperability and scalability. As a result, our lighting controls work with a broad range of lighting, network, and management systems throughout a building and across entire sites.
Faster, Simpler, Cost Effective
Xicato’s Bluetooth Mesh lighting controls can be installed and commissioned in hours or days, rather than weeks or months. Without expensive wires, hubs, or dedicated control gear, commissioning can take place without disrupting people. Fast, responsive performance and powerful features such as groups, scenes, schedules, and sensor control are easily within reach, even for smaller shops and spaces.
Reliable by Design
Eliminating wires, connectors, hubs, and central controllers reduce the possibility of failure which could take down the entire system.Xicato’s distributed Bluetooth lighting controls ensure that there is no single point of failure. Lights can be individually programmed to respond to manual commands or time of day, but the power ofXicato’s lighting controls are fully revealed when switches and schedules are combined with occupancy (motion) and ambient light (lux) sensors. Automation provides the ability to minimize energy consumption, meet government regulations, operating budgets, and to create a comfortable, convenient environment.
