Easyfit switches for Bluetooth lighting systems
EnOcean now offers wireless and self-powered wall switches for Bluetooth lighting control systems. The Easyfit Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) switches are available in two different design versions: The Easyfit switch with standardized 55x55mm frame (EWSSB/EWSDB) allows installers to easily replace any 55x55 switch frame from a number of renowned manufacturers such as BERKER, GIRA, Jäger Direkt, JUNG and MERTEN. The second design is the Easyfit switch for North America (ESRPB/EDRPB).
The self-powered and wireless Easyfit switches can be commissioned by Near Field Communication (NFC) to allow simple or complex lighting scenes and effects, and enable easy, flexible installation of lighting applications. The wireless Easyfit switches are maintenance-free as they do not require batteries, freely positionable and allow flexible control as well as intuitive usage.
Easyfit BLE switches are supported by Casambi, Silvair and Xicato, offering self-powered control solutions for Bluetooth lighting systems in 2.4 GHz
Casambi has integrated a support for the Easyfit switches to work seamlessly within Casambi’s Bluetooth networked lighting controls. Equipped with NFC technology, the Easyfit wall switches enable fast and simple commissioning and allow controlling individual luminaires, groups of luminaires, scenes and animations in Casambi lighting control solutions.
With the Mesh Stack, Silvair provides a wireless communication engine for robust and fully scalable mesh lighting. The integration of Easyfit switches into the Mesh allows an optimal, maintenance-free control of lighting systems with low latency, even in high-density lighting networks. It can be updated over-the-air to become compliant with the upcoming Bluetooth Mesh standard following its adoption.
Xicato´s XIM Gen4 LED lighting modules plus EnOcean´s Easyfit switches for Bluetooth Low Energy are ideal for retail and commercial applications requiring California Title 24 compliance. The combination of the energy harvesting wireless Easyfit switches with the features of Xicato´s LED lighting modules allows simple or complex lighting scenarios, and enables flexible installation. These self-powered lighting solutions are used in some of the world’s finest museums, retail stores, hotels and residences.
