    The WiZ connected lighting product range consists of lamps, a retrofit connector, LED strip and several accessories, all commissioned via the WiZ app. WiZ Connected technology is embedded into Ansell’s and 4Lite’s luminaires, meaning no hubs or additional wiring is required. The OCTO WiZ Pro range provides a hybrid technology consisting of WiFi and Bluetooth. This hybrid technology is a world premiere for 2020, being the only dual protocol solution currently on the market, allowing seamless pairing and scalable deployments. The WiZ Pro software suite offers multi-users and multi-location options, making it suitable for new or existing residential buildings, restaurants, shops and the education sector. 

    We are very pleased to partner with Ansell Lighting and 4Lite as their innovative, forward thinking approach reflects our own. This partnership is very emblematic of our ability to address the needs of lighting vendors who target simultaneously consumer and professional markets. From whichever channel a light is acquired and installed, there is always an end-user who can enjoy a welcoming atmosphere that she or he can control intuitively with the WiZ App,”

    A world class IoT platform

     

    WiZ technology encapsulates multi-protocol connectivity such as WiFi, Bluetooth and 2.4 Ghz low consumption radio frequency. It integrates a feature rich app with intuitive interface, a secured cloud access with real-time interoperability with leading IoT platforms and voice assistants such as Google Assistant, Alexa, Apple Siri shortcuts and Samsung Smart Things.

     

    Using the app, light intensity can be changed from either a single color, or tuneable with 64,000 shades of whites, enhancing mood, relaxation and minimizing stress on eyes. For lights with colors, users can choose to set dynamic light modes for any occasion.

     

    The WiZ app is accompanied by dashboard control options that provide owners a panoramic view of their installation and allows for predictive maintenance and energy usage monitoring, along with advanced circadian rhythm automation enabling Human Centric Lighting. Besides tunable white control and circadian rhythm, other features of the app include lights grouping, schedules, WiZ Click, default light settings (intensity, fading), dynamic light modes, scene management, vacation mode, power monitoring, and sensor management.
