Helvar freeDim

freeDim is suited to commercial office and meeting room applications, providing a fresh, personalised and intelligent approach to lighting control. Users can create their preferred lighting scene for a designated space, which is then automatically saved and wirelessly activated by their presence using a mobile app.

“freeDim is a significant breakthrough in personalised lighting,” said Dan Wills, Senior Strategic Product Manager at Helvar. “As an integrated and intelligent wireless solution, users now have more ownership with their lighting control enabling them to personalise their lighting space to suit their own needs. This simple to set up and configure solution can assist in well-being and productivity but will also drive energy savings.”

The freeDim solution comprises of a freeDim master controller, offering Bluetooth-enabled devices to connect via the freeDim app, a freeDim sensor and optionally a freeDim follower controller (up to 10 per system), with wireless connection to the master.

The freeDim solution works by detecting the presence of a Bluetooth-enabled Apple or Android device, and then activating the user’s personal lighting preferences. Lighting is automatically switched off after the space is no longer occupied, without the need to rely on a motion sensor, providing additional energy saving. The Bluetooth connection will ensure that the lights stay on when occupied, to offer true presence detection.
