This system consists of nLight Air enabled LED luminaires (equipped with eldoLED LED drivers), wireless battery powered wall switches and a mobile configuration app, called Clarity. nLight Air systems are deployed using the building’s existing wiring, Acuity adds.
These luminaires ship with a smart environment multi-function sensor that detects and shares motion, daylight and temperature data via integrated radios.
Each nLight Air control device also features a dual wireless radio solution with 900MHz and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communication technologies and rPODB wall switches, which can be remotely managed via the Clarity app.
Multiple Acuity Brands luminaires and relight kits come nLight Air enabled, including the BLT, VTL, and WL LED luminaires from Lithonia Lighting and Peerless Bruno LED luminaires for commercial projects.
