Xicato XIMtroller has the ability to see and control Bluetooth-enabled Xicato Intelligent Modules (XIM Bluetooth) that are installed as LED light sources in specification-grade spot, track, and downlight fixtures from dozens of manufacturers.
Immediately on startup, the application listens for the BLE broadcasts of the modules, and lists them by name, Bluetooth signal strength, and current lighting intensity. Users can then control the intensity of individual lights, groups of lights, or all lights using a slide switch, and can query individual XIM modules for configuration information and basic operating data, such as temperature and intensity.
Bluetooth is the future of lighting control and Internet of Things applications. XIM Bluetooth can interact with ambient light and occupancy sensors, switches, and gateways as well as the installed base of billions of Bluetooth enabled smartphones, tablets and computers to control and manage specification-grade lighting. XIM Bluetooth can be programmed to transmit iBeacons, and reports operating data at configurable intervals to proactively manage lighting installations.
