Smart lighting app update: easier control and time-sensitive dimming

Casambi’s latest smart lighting app update brings faster commissioning of lighting systems and new features, including enhanced access to multiple networks and better control over functions, such as dimming and daylight harvesting.

Part of a robust and reliable Bluetooth Low Energy lighting control platform, the new software includes updates for both the app itself (the said commissioning and control of a Casambi lighting solution) and the firmware embedded within Casambi hardware.

The app update brings the improved ability to add and commission units one by one to a lighting network: the pairing process simply selects the next closest unit automatically by gauging signal strength. When being paired, lights blink for easy identification, and it is possible to re-name each unit and add it to a desired lighting group via the pairing screen in the app.

The update also introduces time-based scenes and circadian profiles for regular scenes. Time-based scenes can support different light dimming values at different times of day, controlled via the Casambi app or via wireless and wired switches, sensors and timers. This means, for example, that a sensor can enable lights to be turned up to 100% during the day and down to 30% at night, without changing the lighting scene. Circadian profiles allow regular scenes to automatically adjust in colour temperature throughout the day.

In addition, the updated app makes it easier to adjust different scenes within timers and animations, so dimming levels, colours and colour temperatures can be varied over time.

Said Casambi’s CEO, Timo Pakkala: “This new version of our software makes commissioning professional smart lighting systems simpler than ever, and delivers even more control over lighting scenes and animations, enabling greater customisation possibilities for customers, as well as giving them the capability to extend their lighting networks with minimal difficulty.”
