Xicato unveils XIM Gen4 Smart Lighting Module
Xicato, an established manufacturer and thought leader in intelligent, connected light sources, introduces XIM Gen4, its 4th generation intelligent module. This module integrates Bluetooth Low Energy (also known as BLE or Bluetooth Smart) wireless communication, beacon capability and fully featured light control with the industry's tightest specification light source. It is the first time in the lighting industry that this much technology has been integrated into such a small module, measuring only Ø50mm x 20mm.
Xicato also brings in the immediate availability of license-free Windows and iOS software for commissioning and control of the XIM lighting network. XIMtroller control software is now available free from the Apple iTunes App Store. The Windows Control Panel software is available for download by contacting Xicato.
Xicato has included Bluetooth beacon functionality in its light module. Apple iBeacon, Google Eddystone, and/or Alt beacons enable location-aware guest services like indoor navigation and rich content delivered directly to mobile smartphones and tablets. With a phone or Windows PC, it is possible to directly retrieve real-time and historical data such as operating hours and temperature from Xicato's intelligent modules.
