Wireless Lighting Control Application Provides Customizable, Mobile Lighting Management and Energy Savings Data
Las Vegas, June 1, 2014—Synapse Wireless, a recognized leader
in the development and implementation of wireless products and
solutionsthat empower the Internet of Things (IoT), today introduced
simplySNAP, an innovative wireless controller that simplifies the
installation and maintenance of lighting systems and enables
on-the-go lighting control.
The new simplySNAP solution, which is accessible via a user-friendly and
customizable mobile application, is able to detect motion, the occupancy
or vacancy of a room, building or place, and current daylight conditions,
and will respond accordingly to changes in the environment based on a
set of rules predefined by the user. For example, a user can specify that
lights in a parking lot remain at 50 percent brightness during low-traffic
pre-dawn hours until motion is detected, in which case the lights in the
relevant zone will turn-on to fuller brightness. simplySNAP provides
anytime, anywhere lighting system management.
Lighting Control Solution and More
Built on its award-winning SNAP® wireless mesh network operating system
technology – Synapse Wireless’s simplySNAP goes beyond controlling lights
and lighting systems. The same Synapse nodes and SNAP® software that
manage responses to environmental changes capture performance data
that is accessible anywhere via internet cloud-based storage. This data helps
demonstrate the energy savings and return on investment realized by smart
To maximize usability, simplySNAP supports the widest range of lights
and dimming standards. simplySNAP also integrates with Synapse’s new
SnappyBlue light commissioning tool, which simplifies project implementation
by walking lighting system installers through each step of the commissioning
process – which is the process of activating a lighting system.
The flexibility and usability of this new simplySNAP solution makes it an
ideal choice for both new and retrofit projects.
simplySNAP launches at LIGHTFAIR International
“Synapse technology is changing the lighting industry,” said Kathryn Caspar,
General Manager, Lighting, Synapse Wireless. “Our solutions offer a new level
of flexibility, performance management, and mobile control. We’ve improved
safety in parking lots, increased energy efficiency in warehouses, and even
enhanced quality of life in communities by enabling a more sophisticated
command of lighting systems. We look forward to sharing simplySNAP and
our full suite of lighting solutions at LIGHTFAIR.”
Synapse Wireless will be exhibiting at booth #8403 at LIGHTFAIR International,
June 1-5 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
