Xicato and EnOcean to demonstrate
BLE Interoperability for Title
24 Compliant Smart Lighting at CES 2017
San Jose, CA – November 22, 2016 – Xicato, an established manufacturer
and thought leader in intelligent, connected light sources, and
EnOcean, the global leader in energy harvesting wireless technology,
today announce out-of-the-box interoperability between the Xicato
Intelligent Module, Generation 4 (XIM Gen4) and the EnOcean 2.4 GHz BLE
portfolio of battery-free, energy-harvesting switches. Together with
complementary sensors soon to be available from Xicato and others,
these products create a simple, cost-effective solution for California
Title 24 and other building code requirements. This solution will be
demonstrated in the EnOcean booth #40464 at the CES show in Las Vegas
on January 5-8, 2017.
“Xicato and EnOcean have been working
together for over a year on this
project,” said Menko de Roos, CEO of Xicato. “The almost simultaneous
launch of XIM Gen4 and EnOcean’s compatible Bluetooth switch creates
instant lighting solutions that meet and transcend building codes to
deliver highly customizable, cost-effective, wirelessly controlled
lighting environments of all types.”
“Xicato and EnOcean share the commitment to industry leadership in
wireless lighting control and the Internet of Things (IoT),” says Dr.
Wald Siskens, CEO at EnOcean. “The combination of EnOcean’s energy
harvesting wireless switches with the powerful features of the XIM Gen4
allows users to create and control simple or complex lighting scenes
and effects, and enables simple, flexible installation of lighting
applications. Our solutions enable wireless, maintenance-free control
and eliminate the complexity and cost associated with wired or
battery-powered wireless solutions.”
Xicato XIM and XTM modules are the light sources of choice for some of
the world’s finest museums, retail stores, hotels and residences. XIM
Gen4 is available in fixtures from several lighting manufacturers, some
of which will be part of the demo in the EnOcean booth. XIM Gen4 can be
programmed to respond to any combination of Bluetooth Low Energy
switches, motion and lux sensors, and even 1-10V or DALI wired control.
Groups, scenes, and “states” are easy to program into the XIM’s
themselves, eliminating the need for dedicated hubs or controllers.
