Android drives TSR's intelliSSL wireless LED module
Android can be used to remotely control a wireless LED lamp, made by Thermal Solution Resources.
According to the company, the intelliSSL smart MR16 LED lamp enables a strong wireless reception, eliminating signal interference even under high temperatures. It measures 1.98 inches in diameter and 1.98 inches in length – with a GU 5.3 base.
It has been demonstrated at LIGHTFAIR International 2013 in the US, and likely applications are architectural and outdoor lighting installations. It can also be driven by iOS or Windows smartphones, tablets or PCs.
Compliant with the IEEE 802.15.4 standard for wireless communication, the MR16 LED can be used with a wide range of network software stacks, including ZigBee Light Link, ZigBee Home Automation and JenNet-IP.
It uses the ultra-low-power JN5168 wireless microcontroller from NXP Semiconductors.
“Wireless lighting control is becoming a strategic investment for commercial and residential buildings, with significant ROI in terms of energy savings and total cost of ownership, as well as safety and security,” said Mikhail Sagal, president of Thermal Solution Resources.
A GU 10 base version is planned for release later this year.Tags: energy savings, LED, lighting control, signal interference, TSR
