Platform

Silvair is an end-to-end smart lighting platform enabling manufacturers to provide enhanced lighting experience to their customers. It is a complete set of tools allowing end users to wirelessly configure, control and manage their commercial lighting environments in order to drive energy costs down, increase the efficiency of their assets, and improve well-being of building occupants. Silvair enables multi-service mesh networks generating data from sensors and physical assets, providing unprecedented insight into processes taking place across a given space. This data can be put to work to improve individual processes, optimize space utilization or understand customer behavior.

With flexible integration options (PWM/0-10V/UART/DALI) and a fully scalable architecture based on the Bluetooth mesh technology, our solution ensures a smooth transition into the Internet of Things for manufacturers of LEDs, drivers, switches and sensors.

At its core, the Silvair platform consists of four complementary components: Silvair Module with a dedicated software stack, Silvair App, Silvair Logic and Silvair Cloud.

Benefits for
manufacturers

As promising as the IoT market is, introducing connected solutions into a lighting company’s portfolio requires an enormous development effort. Allowing lighting manufacturers to focus on their core businesses, we take care of all software-related aspects of that transition so that they can quickly start enjoying numerous benefits provided by the Silvair platform.
These include:

  • interoperability with the enormous installed base of Bluetooth devices
  • continuous insight into product performance and usage patterns
  • seamless commissioning process reducing customer support requests
  • streamlined integration via Silvair MATE (Manufacturing and Testing Environment)
  • cutting-edge, value-added products and services in manufacturer’s portfolio
  • ability to improve products that are already in customers’ hands (via over-the-air update)
  • opportunity to monetize value-added services (e.g. beacons)
  • opportunity to move toward subscription-based business models
  • being at the forefront of disruptive market trends

Silvair Mesh

The entire wireless communication within the Silvair platform happens via a robust Bluetooth mesh network. Truly outstanding features of the Bluetooth radio allowed us to effectively address all the major challenges that professional smart lighting systems typically struggle with, such as multicast, synchronous operation, scalability or latency.

Why Silvair

Reliable partner

Having developed a pioneering, proprietary mesh architecture based on Bluetooth Smart, we are now the leading contributor to the Bluetooth Special Interest Group which aims to standardize mesh networking support. Immediately after the formal adoption of the Bluetooth mesh architecture, our platform will become fully compliant with the standard via over-the-air update.

Be first to the market with Bluetooth® Mesh certified products!

Silvair stack

We enable manufacturers to make their lighting products smart and connected by providing our full-stack Silvair Module, a combination of hardware and software solutions designed to meet the challenging requirements of commercial lighting environment. In addition to a powerful wireless connectivity engine, each such module contains a set of software-defined lighting features tailored to our customers’ needs.

Currently, our customers can choose from 8 different firmware packages for LEDs, drivers and switches. Further firmware layers - including the ones supporting PIR sensors and advanced lighting control strategies - are under development and will become available soon.

Tools for spaces

To enable end users to make the most of their smart lighting environments, we have designed dedicated setup and management tools. In addition to facilitating the commissioning process and maintenance procedures, they also handle the flow of data generated by nodes of a multi-service mesh network.

Silvair App

An intuitive smartphone app for commissioning, managing and controlling smart lighting networks. Its outstanding mobile UX design makes interacting with a smart environment as natural and smooth as possible. It also provides secure and automatic data backup and sync services.

Silvair Logic

A powerful, multi-protocol gateway enabling Internet connectivity and serving as an ultimate network maintenance and management tool. Its browser-based interface allows for setting up more advanced lighting scenarios and monitoring lighting system performance in real time - which in turn enables predictive maintenance of the entire lighting infrastructure. Silvair Logic also serves as a data hub for routing the data generated by smart devices into the cloud.

Applications

In addition to an adaptive, personalized and fully-tunable lighting environment, smart luminaires provide multiple value-added features that go well beyond just lighting up a space. Tangible benefits can be obtained across all types of commercial spaces, e.g. in retail, offices or museums:

  • freedom of configuration, flexibility of use
  • significant energy savings via advanced lighting control strategies
  • improved performance, comfort and well-being
  • time savings via asset tracking and predictive maintenance
  • increased safety
  • stronger customer engagement via beacons
  • higher sales productivity
  • instant access to actionable data

About us

Our team of world class software developers, hardware engineers, UX designers, product managers and testers is fluent with all major communication protocols, including Z‑Wave, ZigBee, 802.15.4‑based 6LoWPAN and several proprietary sub‑GHz ISM. However, our development efforts focus on Bluetooth, hands down the most robust and energy efficient low-power radio technology. We are at the forefront of disruptive market trends, developing cutting edge software and hardware solutions redefining the paradigms of lighting control and commercial building automation.

As a leading contributor to the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, we’re also driving the development of the global Bluetooth Mesh standard, firmly believing that its upcoming adoption will finally open the door for smart lighting networks to become widely deployed in professional applications. Not afraid of any challenges, we are ready to change the way people interact with spaces around them. It's all about delivering comfort, safety, efficiency and outstanding user experience.
