SACRAMENTO, Calif. May 19, 2021—McWong International, a leading lighting and controls solutions provider, is pleased to introduce its wireless, self-powered switch for its Bluetooth mesh network solutions. These switches do not require power wiring or batteries, they are equipped with a micro-generator powered Bluetooth BLE transmitter to send the wireless signals. The switch offers ON/OFF, dimming, and white tuning control for both TruBlu and Casambi networks. Users can commission these switches in the field via the platform's commissioning app. Typical applications include public restrooms, private offices, classrooms, conference rooms, storage spaces, and break rooms. They are ideal for applications where power wiring is impossible or not desired.
The wireless, self-powered switch joins a comprehensive lineup of hardware choices for the company’s award-winning, DLC-certified TruBlu Bluetooth mesh control platform. These include microwave, ultrasonic and passive infrared occupancy and motion sensors; fixture controllers with single- and dual-channel control capabilities for light level and white tuning, photocell for daylight-responsive control, and wireless wall switches for manual override control. The platform features robust networking and communication capabilities combined with Bluetooth qualification for all devices for enhanced interoperability. The TruBlu web portal and app, powered by McWong’s technology partner Silvair’s SIG-qualified software stack, provides convenient and user-friendly interfaces for project design, commissioning, and operation post-installation.
The sensor is also compatible with McWong's Casambi mesh solution, which combines the hardware platform of devices, including dimming occupancy sensors (PIR, ultrasonic, and microwave); fixture controllers, and dimming wall switches, with the Casambi application interface. This provides comprehensive controllability and a full range of control parameters, including ON/OFF; dimming; grouping; adjustable ramp and fade for dimming functions; scenes; scheduling functions (ON/OFF or other light level by time and date or astronomical); white color tuning; and much more.
