Smart LED lighting offers color-temperature and dimming control
The new system ranges from controllers, dimmers, smart drivers, and various LED light bulbs and lighting fixtures with built-in smart power drivers that can change the color temperature of light and dim the light output. The family includes the 10-Watt A19 bulbs, the 15-Watt BR30 bulbs, 18-Watt BR40 bulbs, downlights, T5, T8 tubes and 2×2, 2×4 light panels. All of the smart lamps can change color temperature and provide smooth dimming by the following four different control methods:
- use of the existing switch only;
- use of the existing TRIAC dimmers installed for CFL and incandescent bulbs;
- use of an iDimmer; and
- use of an in-line ipHost controller.
The ipHost controller is Wi-Fi ready and can be controlled via iPhones or the Android smart phones with local Wi-Fi network, or via the cloud. Aside from the control keypads on the ipHost, an IR remote controller and a wall-mount touch panel can be used as control interface to the ipHost controller. With the option of using the existing On/Off switch or the TRIAC dimmer the consumer can simply retrofit the traditional CFL, Halogen, or Incandescent bulbs with our smart LED lamp without any additional wiring.
Using the devices it is possible to easily change the color-temperature, switch on and off or dim the light by any combination of control devices such as the existing TRIAC dimmer, regular On/Off switch, IR remote control, smart phone, tablet or PC. A various scene control mode can be created based on different mood or event functions.
