Irvine, California:   Industry leader of LED luminaire innovation, LEDRA Brands, Inc (LEDRAbrands), parent company of American, lighting technology brands BRUCK Lighting and ALPHABET Lighting, collaborate for a white paper study with Bluetooth mesh component innovator McWong International and Bluetooth® controls, industry leader CASAMBI®.

The paper explores the LEDRAbrands factory headquarters, buildout project in detail, examining the project design intent, the criteria for technology selection, the installation / commissioning phase, and lastly, lessons learned. It can be found at ledrawhitepapers.com, www.McWongInc.info and www.CASAMBI.com.

Creating an ideal demo design showcase requires integration of the best lighting technologies while simplifying control to the most flexible capability possible. This white paper outlines the ability to deliver the most desired functions, from intelligent light level control to critical emerging functions, using proprietary Bluetooth mesh solution from Casambi and McWong. These include human-centric lighting that benefits occupants’ biological, emotional, and overall wellbeing through scene setting tied to real time, atomic clock, and solar mapping graphs. In addition, the project satisfies California’s ambitious Title24-2019 requirements while achieving the highest degree of interoperability among a wide range of performance downlighting, architectural and decorative luminaires.
