Xicato XIM Gen4 module and EnOcean BLE switches now interoperable
November 24, 2016 - Xicato, a manufacturer of connected light sources, and EnOcean have announced out-of-the-box interoperability between the Xicato intelligent module, Generation 4 (XIM Gen4), and the EnOcean 2.4 GHz BLE (Bluetooth low energy) portfolio of battery-free, energy-harvesting switches. Together—with complementary sensors soon to be available from Xicato and others—these products create a solution to meet many building code requirements.

“Xicato and EnOcean have been working together for over a year on this project,” said Menko de Roos, CEO of Xicato. “The almost simultaneous launch of XIM Gen4 and EnOcean’s compatible Bluetooth switch creates instant lighting solutions that meet and transcend building codes to deliver highly customizable, cost-effective, wirelessly controlled lighting environments of all types.”
XIM Gen4 can be programmed to respond to any combination of BLE switches, motion and lux sensors, and even 1-10V or DALI wired control.
