Silvair to provide wireless technology for Osram

(Poland) – Silvair to collaborate with Osram as Technology Partner

Silvair has enterted into a technology partnership with Osram, providing a robust wireless control technology for HubSense, a new lighting control system for the global lighting company.

HubSense is designed to enable easy and time-efficient retrofitting of existing lighting installations into flexible wireless control systems based on the globally interoperable Bluetooth mesh standard. With a simplified commissioning process and multiple predefined lighting scenarios, it is an intuitive solution for implementing advanced control strategies without lighting control engineering expertise. The system also allows quick modification of settings and lighting arrangement without bearing the costs of recommissioning.

As a major contributor to the Bluetooth SIG’s Mesh Working Group, Silvair plays a key role in the development of the Bluetooth mesh standard, and as Technology Partner, Osram will be looking to gain access to the company’s wireless knowhow.

“This is a strong signal for the entire industry, which confirms the enormous potential of Bluetooth mesh networking in professional lighting applications. We’re delighted that our efforts aimed at delivering a truly outstanding lighting control experience have been recognised by one of the most established brands in the lighting business,” said Michał Hobot, VP of Product at Silvair.

“Bluetooth mesh introduces multiple innovative concepts to solve the typical challenges of wireless lighting control,” added Hannes Wagner, Product Manager at Osram. “Already present in all personal computing devices, it also seems perfectly positioned to deliver value-added services directly to end users.

“With its commitment to quality and innovation, Silvair is a perfect partner for exploring this exciting global ecosystem.”
