What is an Avi-on RAB and what does it do?

An Avi-on Remote Access Bridge (RAB) connects your local Avi-on Bluetooth Mesh network to the Avi-on Cloud service. 

The RAB enables you to

  • Use your mobile phone to access your network from any location via the Avi-on cloud service
  • Connect to an ever growing list of other control options such as Amazon Alexa
  • Access a growing list of special services provided through the Avi-on cloud
  • Automatically resync the time of your network in the event of a power outage, daylight savings, etc.
  • Maintain the time every day to improve the accuracy of sunrise/sunset schedules
  • The RAB acts as another node on the Bluetooth mesh network.  This means that if you lose internet, all your switches and schedules will continue to work as before.
