nLight AIR devices now self-initialize to act as repeaters for standalone zone operation, which results in more reliable communication in areas where wireless may not have been dependable.
- Communication Around Corners – Standalone groups have the same ability that Autonomous Bridging Technology gave to the nLight AIR network—reliability in spite of harsh environments.
- Faster Group Formation – This update significantly increases a group’s ability to form by repeating formation broadcasts, automatically resolving issues when point-to-point communication was not possible. If a device is out of range, devices that can connect initialize as repeaters to enable communication.
- ABT Compatible – Standalone repeaters operate in conjunction with network repeaters, so even networked groups benefit from this new update.
- 360-Degrees Outdoors – Outdoor applications benefit from this technology because occupancy sensors can trigger a lights-on response for a group of luminaires, 360-degrees around a building.
- Floor-Wide Zones – With the ability to repeat multiple times for large group formation, even large parking garage floors are single-zone candidates for occupancy control.
- Same Uniform Response – nLight AIR avoids non-uniform responses via its long-range broadcasts, resulting in a synchronized response from all devices in a group.
