Soraa's LED Lamps Go Wireless

Lamp comes with Bluetooth control developed by Seed Labs

Maker of GaN-on-GaN LEDs Soraa has announced it will be incorporating the option of wireless control into its product line, starting with the company's PAR30L (long neck) LED lamp. The new wireless lamp will be displayed in Soraa's booth at LIGHTFAIR International, May 5-7 at the Javits Centre in New York City.

Soraa's wirelessly controlled PAR30L LED lamp provides users a variety of customisable remote functions including dimming, control of lamps in user-defined groups, and user-designed preset lighting scenes. The company says that as a result of the directional nature of its lamps, lighting layers can be easily controlled at both the individual and local level. This provides flexibility in achieving uniquely lit spaces by dialing in illuminance levels locally.

"With wireless lighting, we are freed from the constraints and costs that physical electrical control circuitry imposes on lighting designs. With omni-directional light sources, the impact of this is still quite limited; however, directional sources create the ability to locally dial-in light levels," explained Jeff Parker, CEO of Soraa. "We believe that our wirelessly controlled directional lamps will become an essential tool for customers, providing unlimited possibilities for achieving lighting scenes that are actually practical to implement."

Soraa will offer its wireless PAR30L lamps in combination with a mobile application that runs on both iOS and Android platforms, and the lamps can form a mesh network and connect in almost unlimited numbers to a smart phone.

Using Bluetooth Smart, Soraa says the lamps can interact directly with smartphones, without the need of a bridge or router and complicated setup. Plus, the lamps can be operated in public mode, giving access to everyone, and private mode, restricting access to a few people.

The company will also provide a wireless and portable control to replace the traditional wall dimmer switches. Equipped with a number of sensors, Soraa Control developed by Seed Labs provides a way to interact with lights without a smart phone.

"Seed Labs' innovative technology changes the way spaces are wired, controlled, and connected," said Rafal Han, CEO and co-founder of Seed Labs, Inc. "Lighting is the perfect user preference product, so we are very excited about our new collaboration with Soraa."
