Controls Partner – Synapse


Controls provide opportunity to realize additional savings from LED lighting. Controls are available to be installed on lighting, by wireless communications, and by networked wireless communications. Systems with Gateways further enable value by connecting to the Internet of Things (IoT). The inputs or control options include:

  • Works both indoors and Outdoors – No need for separate control systems.
  • Easy customization – Quickly set up energy-saving behaviors and comply with energy conservation requirements, including demand response and daylight harvesting.
  • Multiple methods of control – Flexible deployment models allow both stand-alone local access and cloud-based remote control
  • Scalable solution – Integrate seamlessly into existing BMS systems and support large deployments with cloud-based architecture.
  • Robust wireless mesh technology – It continually monitors the wireless network and generates alerts on any issues found.

How the System Works:

The Synapse wireless light controllers connect to the LED drivers of the light fixtures. The light controllers may be integrated/embedded inside the fixture or external depending on the application and system design. The wireless controllers automatically connect to other nearby Synapse controllers form a mesh network. A Site Controller Gateway discovers the wireless controllers and the wireless lighting control system is managed through a built in browser interface. The mesh network and the site controller communicate over a 802.15.4 Mesh, 2.4 Ghz.
Larger systems with multiple Site Controller Gateways can centrally manage the entire system through one user interface using the SimplySNAP Illuminate cloud based solution. If a BMS exist at a customer site, the customers can control the Synapse Site Controller Gateway by using a BMS Gateway to send commands from the BMS system to the lighting system.
For customers with needs outside of lighting control, we offer additional capabilities through industrial sensors and cloud applications. Together these solutions help companies better understand their Power, Air, HVAC, and other systems to reduce waste and optimize operations.
