Wireless Controls with Mesh Network

SimplySnap Smart Lighting provides the networking backbone of your industrial internet of things.

SimplySnap unites Things with Clouds by turning lights into an IIoT network. Lights provide a bird’s eye view covering all work areas forming a grid creating a robust network topology. All a sensor has to do is find a light and SimplySnap connects to the internet using an on-site controller. This architecture enables us to sense, analyze and control a broad variety of use cases to save energy, cut expenses, increase productivity and reduce risks.

How the System Works

The Synapse wireless light controllers connect to the LED drivers of the light fixtures and may be integrated/embedded inside the fixture or connected externally depending on the application and fixture design. Once they are powered, the wireless controllers automatically discover and connect with other nearby Synapse controllers and other Synapse-enabled devices to form a mesh network.

The SNAP wireless mesh network uses a proprietary protocol and operates on the standard IEEE 802.15. 4 physical radio specification in the 2.4 GHz frequency band. A Site Controller manages the wireless lighting control system and stores system information. Larger systems with multiple Site Controllers can centrally manage the entire system through one user interface using the SimplySnap cloud based solution.

For customers with needs outside of lighting control, we offer additional capabilities through industrial sensors and other cloud applications. Together these solutions help companies better understand their Power, Air, HVAC, and other systems to reduce waste and optimize operations.
