Light the future: Wireless control & communication

Unprecedented control is yours with our newest luminaires, a smartphone app or USB, and our standard SightLine track. The MiniMax Bluetooth, Artima/3 Bluetooth, and MidiMax Bluetooth are powered by Xicato's XIM LED module, and offer: 

  • Bluetooth beacon technology is embedded into the luminaires. When a visitor walks through the beacon's signal, they receive a push notification on their smartphone or tablet. Both the signal's radius and the notification message can be easily edited by the owner of the space. The applications are endless:

    • Museums can notify visitors about the artwork they are viewing,
    • Retail stores can send promotions specific to each product display.
    • Event spaces can forward check-in details upon entry.
    • Any and everywhere can send navigation details to guide visitors.

  • Wireless control system. Using a user-friendly program from their tablet or computer, users can:

    • group luminaires into saveable 'scenes.
    • pre-schedule scenes based on time of day. 
    • program light levels and dimming in response to switches, motion sensors, and light-level sensors. 
  • Operational reports. The owner can collect, diagnose, and report real-time operational data, and submit the reports for energy rebates.

  • Dimming to 0.1%. The owner can use the app to connect luminaires withsensors, to individually dim luminaires,  and to group them into saveable scenes. Click here to learn more about the benefits of wireless dimming. 

These features are controllable by either a iOS app, downloaded on your Apple phone or tablet, or by a Windows computer using a USB. Click here to learn more about the LED module capabilities.

The Bluetooth's innovations build upon features we've perfected since 1952:

  • Precise illumination: powerful accent lighting, tight spot lighting, and uniform wallwashing.

  • Visually comfortable apertures that eliminate glare.

  • Elegant design, including a 33% shorter track-mounted driver box than used for previous models. 

  • Durable construction, by our New York City factory using regionally-sourced raw materials. 

 

The MiniMax Bluetooth and Artima/3 Bluetooth are both awarded a listing in the Illuminating Engineering Society's 2017 Progress Report. The listing recognizes the luminaires for its "uniqueness, innovation and significance to the lighting industry."
