Zumtobel Group partners with Casambi for wireless lighting control solutions

11th June 2019

(Austria) – Partnership to improve controllability for Zumtobel and Thorn luminaires.

The Zumtobel Group has teamed up with Casambi with a strategic partnership that will see Zumtobel and Thorn luminaires offer seamless control to users via Casambi’s BLE software control platform.

Further to this, a series of Tridonic drivers is now also ‘Casambi-Ready’, allowing luminaire manufacturers to easily integrate wireless controls within their products to reduce cost and complexity. The connected lighting solutions form part of the dynamic lighting management platform, Tridonic basicDIM Wireless, which enables users to adapt various settings to their individual needs in an intuitive manner.

“Our partnership with Casambi allows us to combine our outstanding luminaire design with state-of-the-art Bluetooth technology, which simplifies installation, commissioning and operation of lighting systems and, thanks to its interoperability, leaves room for future developments and applications,” said Alfred Felder, Zumtobel Group CEO.

Casambi CEO Timo Pakkala added: “With Casambi technology installed within the Thorn and Zumtobel luminaires and also supporting Tridonic drivers, lighting control has become more powerful, versatile and easier to use.

“Moreover, the introduction of these new connected lighting solutions from an industry titan such as Zumtobel Group goes a long way to demonstrate the continued rapid growth achieved by Casambi’s expanding ecosystem.”
