Casambi is one of the fastest growing wireless control systems in the world. Casambi lighting technology is based on Bluetooth Low Energy and provides the most advanced lighting control solution in the market.
Casambi wireless control systems have been implemented in many partner products, to create a very large ecosystem of Casambi-enabled products, all of which communicate seamlessly together. The Bluetooth mesh technology coupled with the expansive range of products available, has resulted in Casambi technology being implemented in very large projects across the world, which are highlighted in the case studies section on our Wireless Lighting Controls website.
Holders Technology has been working very closely with Casambi, as a technical sales and support partner since 2016, selling a complete range of hardware, as well as providing all technical support and project services necessary for any project. In 2020, Holders also launched Holders Technology Data Analytics to provide a data analytics dashboard for all Casambi data requirements. All information about products, project and data services can be found on our Wireless Lighting Controls website.
bluetooth low energy?
Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard with a limited coverage area, functioning within the 2.402 GHz to 2.480 GHz ISM band. It comprises two distinct variants: Bluetooth Classic (also known as Bluetooth BR/EDR) and Bluetooth Low Energy.
Bluetooth Classic facilitates one-to-one device connectivity and is employed for wireless audio transmission and data exchange over relatively short distances. Common applications include wireless speakers, keyboards, headphones, and in-car entertainment systems.
Bluetooth Low Energy is engineered for ultra-low power consumption, ideal for transmitting compact data packets across 40 channels. BLE accommodates various communication structures, including point-to-point, broadcast, and mesh networks.
How Bluetooth works
Casambi’s technology establishes a mesh network called ‘Casambi Mesh,’ enabling node-to-node communication within a lighting network. This communication is made possible through the use of the Bluetooth Low Energy protocol, facilitating interaction between a mobile device (or the control device) and the Casambi platform.
The mesh network’s topology possesses self-healing properties, meaning that in the event of a device failure, the signal automatically re-routes through alternative devices. This ensures that data maintains multiple pathways to reach its destination, enhancing reliability by incorporating numerous nodes and redundant elements. As a result, there is no single point of failure, as no critical component is required to store information for the network’s proper operation.
Lighting control setups do not necessitate special wiring, and hardware complexity is minimized, as there is no need for central units like routers, controllers, or gateways in a Casambi network. A Casambi network can accommodate up to 250 devices, each operating independently and serving as a backup for the entire network. In essence, all nodes within the mesh network carry the complete system intelligence.
