The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) is the well-recognized standards organization that oversees the development of Bluetooth® standards and the licensing of Bluetooth® technologies and trademarks to manufacturers. The SIG is a not-for-profit, non-stock corporation founded in September 1998 with its headquarters in Kirkland, WA. This year, the time came for the lighting infrastructure at the Bluetooth SIG headquarters to be remodelled.
LSI’s client — one of the large petroleum chains — decided to test the AirLink Blue solution at several newly acquired sites that required lighting retrofits. The customer was looking for an easy-to-install, reliable, low-cost wireless control system capable of meeting energy code requirements
The project itself consisted of 3,685 Bluetooth mesh McWong TruBlu lighting controllers (installed in fixtures). Utilizing the TruBlu web app, EMC designed the project with 43 areas and 708 zones.
This work was accomplished off-site using the TruBlu web app from McWong, Silvair’s technology partner, which provides tools for project creation, design, and configuration all prior to on-site commissioning. The control scenario’s were configured for either occupancy, vacancy, manual, or by schedule.
Pioneer market is a family owned grocery business operating in Mariposa, California and Waterford, California. Their mission is “Providing the Best for Our Community” and delivers on that by providing quality and cost savings for their customers. When it came time to upgrade their lighting systems their foremost goal was to improve the customer experience with higher natural light levels.
"The ability to pick and choose from a variety of hardware manufacturers and put them together on the same Bluetooth platform to control the light fixture of our customer’s choosing is a testament to what an open standard control system should look like."

A smooth upgrade from full-on luminaires to efficient, sensor-driven control strategies.
Located in the picturesque city of Red Deer, Westerner Park is Central Alberta’s largest trade show, agriculture, entertainment and sports facility. For more than 125 years, it has been a destination of choice for locals gathering to celebrate all kinds of community events. Just recently, it has also become home to some of the biggest Bluetooth mesh lighting control networks.
OSRAM has launched a new wireless control solution for qualified Bluetooth mesh lighting networks. To demonstrate its capabilities, our partner revamped the lighting controls at its Munich offices.
A Bluetooth mesh lighting network was installed inside one of North America’s most spectacular structures. Components with the Silvair firmware were used to retrofit the lighting system in the iconic Stratosphere Tower, the tallest freestanding observation tower in the U.S.
Silvair lighting control technology enabled a rapid lighting retrofit at the Brussels office of Macq Mobility Management Solutions. It resulted in deployment of a robust 360-node Bluetooth mesh lighting network. The Brussels project showcases the flexibility of Bluetooth mesh and Silvair lighting control solutions in meeting different lighting needs across an architecturally diverse office environment.
The Galicia Jewish Museum was looking for ways to offer its visitors even deeper and more unique cultural experiences.
A recent retrofit of McWong’s 25,000-square-foot facility in Sacramento is the biggest warehouse implementation of a SIG-qualified Bluetooth mesh lighting network to date. Involving multiple luminaires from different manufacturers, the project highlights the interoperability of Bluetooth mesh and the benefits that the technology can deliver in industrial spaces.
To showcase the capabilities of Bluetooth mesh lighting networks in different types of office spaces, Silvair together with Murata have implemented a wireless control system at Billingsley Company office building.
The goal of the project was to install a lighting control system in selected workshops and corridors. The installation is fully autonomous and adapted to the teaching requirements for each space.
