What makes Avi-on’s Bluetooth® Smart + Mesh technology better than old-school Bluetooth® communications?

Avi-on products use CSRMesh™ technology in combination with Bluetooth® Smart to build a lighting controls system with six distinct advantages.

  1. Great range up to 100 feet between devices. Three devices easily cover a 2500 square foot home or office. Plus, individual devices act like repeaters so the network can be almost any size. Your range will depend on two things: your phone/tablet and your method of installation.
  2. Many-to-many controls. Many people can control many devices through a single account.
  3. Drag and drop grouping saves electrician fees. With grouping, people can drag-and-drop individual lights or entire circuits together with the touch of a finger and operate them from a single button on the app, or from the Avi-on Movable Smart Switch.
  4. Real-time dimming. The speed of Bluetooth Smart combined with CSRmesh enables Avi-on to deliver real-time dimming that is equivalent to wires.
  5. Schedules and programs live on the devices; Internet Optional. Avi-on is a distributed architecture where the schedules and programs live on the devices. That means that once you have programmed a switch with sunrise/sunset, groups or other functionality, they work 24/7–without access to the Internet or your smartphone. You can see a diagram of distributed architecture below.

And then there are some additional bonuses of Avi-on’s Bluetooth Smart plus Mesh technology.

  1. Instant set-up. With Avi-on, individual devices can be set up in less than 30 seconds.
  2. No gateway. No problems. Once set-up, products Powered by Avi-on work with or without the Internet. Avi-on’s mesh architecture creates a distributed network so there is no single point of failure like there is with gateway- or hub-based systems.
  3. Remote access is a value-added option. Some people want to control their Avi-on products from anywhere in the world. This can now be done using the Avi-on Remote Access Bridge
  4. Gateway compatibility is coming in 2016. Avi-on is looking forward to integrating its system with major gateway systems. Then, people will be able to enjoy the easy to use Avi-on products with their gateway of choice.
