Introducing Casambi - Part 1
The Casambi solution is based on a state-of-the-art Bluetooth wireless technology allowing you to control lighting via smartphones, tablets and even smart watches.
Bluetooth lighting control requires us to think differently. In this blog we deal with some of the challenges and opportunities that come with the application of wireless lighting control.
The Casambi network is a closed BLE network and local building networks cannot be accessed via the system or the app. Sharing settings allow you to lock down access with a password and any gateways use HTTPS communication process.

Client Benefits and Project Type
Benefits apply in workplace and community (health/aged care) type applications at a room level, or multi floor building level. I.e. a multi floor office fit out, teaching space, common area, smaller community or public buildings.
- General Benefits of Lighting control
Reduced energy use through automation, operation by building occupants (scenes) & controlling light for wellness.
- Reduced cost
Through reduced wiring, controllers, cabling, complexity, commissioning, & installation labour. Faster delivery onsite
- Improved Flexibility
Without cables, Casambi is flexible during commissioning or future fine tuning. Casambi networks can be created or changed simply within the app (unlike hardwired networks). Facility Managers or occupants can download their own app and have training on how to use it and tweak their own system (with the right permissions).
